Understand: the ACLU considers it discriminatory for a library to turn down a request by men dressed up as women to read storybooks to children. Seems to me that the ACLU is all in favor of the Desmondization of America.
No kidding, though, this really and truly ticks me off. Do the people of Lafayette not have the right to decide that drag queens reading stories to kids in the public library is not something they want in their community? Drag queens are a protected class now? Does everybody in the country have to have the morals of the spiritually debauched Evangelical Lutheran Church of America now?
Here’s what I mean. At its Luther Seminary, the denomination’s largest training school for ministry, seminarian Anders Nelson, who has been an intern pastor at an ELCA parish, lip-synched to a Dolly Parton song in the seminary’s chapel, as part of the school’s annual Lip Sync contest. Watch this spiritual father of Lutheran souls shake his groove thang here.
He won the contest, by the way. In the video, Pastor Nelson performs “Baby I’m Burning” in the chapel. Chorus:
Baby I’m burning out of control
Baby I’m burning body and soul
Hot as a pistol of flaming desire
Baby I’m burning
You got me on fire
Some church, that ELCA. It’s superstar pastor, Nadia Bolz-Weber, who recently endorsed “ethically sourced” pornography (note to zoophiles: make sure that the chicken being bonked in that perv video you love is cage-free, unless, of course, the chicken is into BDSM and consenting) left her Colorado parish in charge of a drag queen pastor named — not making this up — “Fruitbomb.”
Desmond Is Amazing has a bright future as an ELCA bishop — if ELCA is still around when he grows up, that is.
I kid! Nobody takes a drag queen pastor seriously, or a church that celebrates drag queens singing about their sizzling loins in chapel. Still, it’s amazing to see how decadent a formerly staid church has gotten. Bet if they wanted to have a conservative Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod) Story Hour at a public library, ACLU lawyers would run over Cajun grammaws in their Priuses to get to the courthouse to sue.
