(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Two ministers encouraged other Christian men to bring “Pastor Story Hour” to their local public libraries, as a protest to “Drag Queen Story Hour,” according to the Daily Wire.
Dale Partridge of Prescott, Ariz., and Michael Foster of Batavia, Ohio, invited members of their communities to discover what the Bible teaches about God’s design for each biological sex.
They decided to do that to protest the leftist LGBTQ propaganda that is pushed down children’s throats through graphic strip teases and sexually explicit curricula in government schools.
“Why are drag queens seemingly more interested in influencing the children in their community than pastors? Why are the lost more committed to the systematic and cultural evangelization of the public than American Christians are to evangelizing the gospel?” Partridge, the leader of the digital ministry Relearn.org, said.
“These are hard questions the church needs to face. Christians need to see that Christianity is a totalizing faith, which means Christ should not be reserved only for church life but should saturate and permeate our entire lives.”
During the event at the Cottonwood Public Library, Partridge read from his children’s book “Jesus and My Gender” to teach a positive view of the roles of the sexes to young readers.
“Historically, Christian fathers took up the mantle of child discipleship. Fathers and mothers are to raise their children to understand what the Bible says about God, man, Christ and the church,” Partridge said.
“Unfortunately, the vast majority of Christian men have abdicated this role, leaving children vulnerable to the influence and lies of the culture.”
“Namely, fathers don’t realize that if they don’t teach their children who they are, the world will,” he added.
Foster, the senior pastor of East River Church, hosted a similar event at Clermont County Library.
“We are a fatherless nation and nature abhors a vacuum. Someone is going to fill that space in our nation,” he said.
“I can let it be some disturbed men in lingerie or it can be a pastor like me. So I stepped up. Men, especially pastors, are called to be community leaders. Talk is cheap. I got a room, set a date and made a Facebook event. It was easy.”
Partridge said that, unlike some Christians, LGBTQ activists may know more about “the value of catechism.” He also said that it is Satan’s plan “for men to be boys, women to be men and children to be unwanted.”
“They understand that children are malleable and impressionable, and instead of upholding and nurturing the historic, logical, biological and scientific view of sexuality and gender, they exploit these children’s innocence to support their crooked political aspirations.”
