Drag queens, incest, pedophilia dominate taxpayer-funded film festival

American taxpayer dollars contributed to a queer film festival that featured films on drug culture, incestuous siblings, and sexual relationships between adults and minors.

The U.S. State Department contributed $10,000 to the Queer Lisboa, a Portuguese film festival held in September 2021, as part of the Biden administration’s efforts to promote acceptance of the LGBTQI+ community internationally, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Among the plethora of provocative content featured was the documentary film P.S. Burn This Letter Please, which detailed drug culture in New York City after World War II. Saint-Narcisse meanwhile displayed a story of twins in an incestuous relationship, while Minyan depicted an underage boy engaging in a sexual relationship with an adult bartender in New York City.

New York church invites drag queens for Pentecost service: ‘Worship is a Drag’

A church in upstate New York marked LGBT pride month by hosting a pair of drag queens at a worship service.

The Park Church in Elmira hosted a “Worship is a Drag” event Sunday, the first Sunday of the month recognized by LGBT activists as “pride month.” The church, affiliated with the United Church of Christ, described the event as a “special communion worship service with guest presenters in drag.” Source: Christian Post

Methodist Church’s First Drag Queen Pastor: ‘God Is Nothing’

Last year, the United Methodist Church accepted Isaac Simmons, who regularly preaches dressed as a drag queen under the name Ms. Penny Cost, as a candidate for ordination. Since that time, Simmons, who serves as an associate pastor at Hope United Methodist Church in Bloomington, Illinois, has challenged basic theological concepts, projecting a worldview where divinity rests not in God but in queerness.

In a church preparing to split over LGBTQ issues, the drag queen pastor, who embraces queer theology while barely attempting to plaster on the basic tenets of Christian theology, has become a lightning rod. Conservatives argue that Simmons’ role as a celebrated figure among progressive Methodists proves the church has become so radically liberal as to forswear Christ. Progressives promote Simmons and invite him to preach in drag as a way to challenge the conservative position on sexuality that the denomination officially still takes. Source: American Spectator
