HOUSTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - A venue in Texas is celebrating Christmas with a performance by drag queens, and Catholics are protesting.
A group of Catholics is planning a public Rosary of reparation on Saturday, Dec. 21, outside the House of Blues in Houston. The venue will feature "A Drag Queen Christmas: The Naughty Tour" at 8 p.m.
A short video advertising the drag queen show includes a clip of a child dancing on stage with a man dressed as a woman. Likewise, an FAQ page states, "Our events are 'All Ages Welcome' unless otherwise noted in the marketing, on the ticket, or on the venue website in each local city."
The promotional video also states the ongoing tour was slated for 34 cities.
Tradition, Family and Property (TFP), a pro-life, pro-family Catholic organization, is organizing the Rosary of reparation.
In an email encouraging people to attend the prayerful protest, TFP's Cesar Franco said, "Please consider joining us to defend the sacredness of Christmas and the innocence of children."
"This 'adult content' event is open to 'people of all ages,'" he remarked. "I saw a couple of the videos advertising the event had children present. What an abomination!"
Church Militant reached out to TPF for comment but received no response as of press time.
A "Drag Diva Brunch" was scheduled for the Houston House of Blues at 11 a.m. Saturday but has been canceled. Two more brunches of the sort are planned for January 2020.
This November, Catholics in Houston turned out in droves to protest a satanic "Black Mass" at a local brewery. Those protesters, as well as Catholics around the country, prayed in reparation outside the sacrilegious event.
There has been a push in the United States to expose young children to drag queens, particularly through Drag Queen Story Hour events at public libraries.
In October, a performer at one such story hour in Minnesota flashed his crotch to children. Wearing a short skirt and belly shirt, the drag queen sat down in a chair with his legs spread wide apart. His private parts, covered only by flesh-tone nylon, were eye-level to the children sitting on the floor in front of him.
In July, St. John's Library in Portland, Oregon deleted photos of a controversial drag queen story hour from social media. The photos showed children crawling on the man's body and lying on top of him while he grinned.
Several drag queens who perform at these kinds of events have been exposed as convicted sex offenders.
Most recently, a drag queen who read to elementary school students in Texas was revealed to be a convicted prostitute — something the school was aware of, yet in violation of its rules allowed him to spend hours around children. This came to light earlier this month through documents obtained by the pro-life, pro-family group Texas Values.
Concerned parents and pro-family groups are pushing back against drag queen events designed to indoctrinate children.
International pro-family group MassResistance is among those who fighting against drag queen story hours around the country. In December last year, MassResistance Organization Director Arthur Schaper told Church Militant, "This is adult, perverse, sexually explicit entertainment."
Schaper argued that the LGBT agenda is based on lies, "and you don't accommodate a lie."
