Pat Robertson: Drag Queen Story Hour ‘putting fingers in the eyes of God’

Posted

Drag Queen Story Hour is pretty much exactly as it sounds: a drag queen shows up to the library (or another appropriate spot) to read children’s books to kids. Most of the titles have to do with being different or unique in some way, much like the personalities reading the books. The hostess usually wears glitter, makeup, high heels, and anything else in fashion. After all, it’s Drag Queen Story Hour and one wouldn’t want to disappoint.

Not listed on the event flyer: the power of drag queens to incite a Godly wrath on America. For that, we simply have to turn to Pat Robertson.

Recently on The 700 Club, LGBTQ Nation reports, Robertson shared his concerns over drag queens and their effect on human nature as we know it.

“I think that’s what we’re trying to do is stick our fingers in God’s eyes and say, ‘Okay Lord, you thought you were making people men and women, that’s what the Bible says, but we’re going to fix it so that we’re going to confuse the sexes, we’re going to confuse everything that you’re doing and then we’re going to murder…if we have offspring as a result of our sexual activity out of marriage, we’re going to kill the offspring,” Robertson said on his televangelist show.

“This was the original crime that led to the destruction of Sodom and Gommorah, and the United States of America is on very slippery ground,” he added. “How is God going to bless America if we put our finger in his eyes repeatedly? And that’s what we’re doing. It’s not just some library that is going to be in trouble, it’s the whole population when God brings judgment.”

“It’s an outrage. Little teeny children as young as two years-old are being exposed cross-dressers, homosexuals who dress up as women and are so-called drag queens,” he added.

“That’s something maybe for some weird television show or something…but there’s a library where they’re hosting these events where men are dressed as women, they’ve got all kinds of make-up on,” Robertson continued.

“They’re men acting like women…they used to call them ‘he-shes’… but they’re reading books to children,” the TV personality continued. “Library officials say it fits their vision of inclusion and diversity. Give me a break. If you read the Bible, there were a couple of cities where they actually, the men tried to have sex with angels who were male figures and God destroyed those cities.”

“The crime, subsequent to that, was called sodomy,” Robertson asserted. “This whole thing is just an outrage…it’s an affront in the eyes of God.”

Not everyone feels the same way.

“I think that we should say that everybody’s different and we should accept people for their differences and that we should treat them as we would treat anybody else with just different tastes,” a father named Robert Friedman, who took his children to a recent Drag Queen Story Hour in Virginia Beach, said. “Some people like pizza. Some people don’t like pizza. Some people dress up like women. Some people dress up like men.”

Drag Queen Story Hour is held throughout the U.S. in more than 20 cities, including Reading, PA, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Francisco, Portland, and New York City.
