‘Stunningly bizarre’: Ohio public library cancels LGBT Pride event after backlash

June 8, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

An Ohio public library canceled an LGBT Pride week event after it sparked outrage from the Republican speaker of the state House.

Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder sent a letter to the Ohio Library Council on Friday demanding that the Licking County Library in Newark stop a planned Pride week event. The event, aimed at teens, featured a tutorial on applying makeup for dressing in drag and a guide to safe sex, according to the Newark Advocate.

“When I was first informed our public libraries were being used to teach teenage boys how to become drag queens, I thought it was a joke,” Householder said. “But the joke is apparently on the taxpayers, who fund our libraries. This is a stunningly bizarre breach of the public trust. And it must stop.”

“Let me be crystal clear: This isn’t about banning books or banning thought or any other red herring argument. This is about right and wrong. This is about being good stewards of the public’s money,” Householder said.

  1. The LGBTQ people are trying to change everything to it’s own queer agendas. They have taken the Lord’s Rainbow and changed the color to suit their tastes along with everything else they transform.
    Homosexuality is not just a sin it is an ABOMINATION. Leviticus 18:22 , Leviticus 20:13.
    Thank You Lord That You Had Larry Householder In Office to Stop This Horrific display of disgust. PEOPLE REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO SODOM AND GOMORRAH. Jesus came to forgive those who turned from their sins. REPENT NOW BEFORE YOU GO TO HELL FOR THE ACTS OF ABOMINATION YOU ARE SO PROUD OF. IT’S ONLY TO LATE WHEN YOUR DEAD & YOU DIDN’T BELIEVE IN GOD’S WORD as TRUTH.
    Tax payers pay for our library’s to benefit the education of our children. We Don’t Need Them Educated By The LGBTQ’s. Grow Up People, Get in the Word Of God, and Stop Thinking that Your Way Is The Right Way. It’s Gods Way, Or The Highway. Think about where you are going to spend eternity instead of the 70 or 80 years on this earth. There is more after we pass on. Read Scripture (Our Country Was Founded On It) AND in IT you will find the truth.”””” HE That Has an Ear, LET HIM HEAR””””, Rev 2:17, Mat 11:15, Mat 13: 9-16, Rev 3:13, Mark 4:9 & So On & So Forth. It’s Time, Are You READY?

    The LGBT leader states that no public funds were to pay for that event, fair enough, however what does he/she think is paying for the library building, it’s maintenance, insurance and employees. If he/she wants it to truly be privately funded, then by all means do it in a private venue, or have someone with a private venue volunteer and pay that building.

    Thank you Jesus for putting a halt to this atrocious event. I am so pleased our Ohio representative, Larry Householder stood firm for truth and refusal to host this evil event to our children as an acceptable life style sayeth our Lord and Savior. Amen
