Then, a church in the community announced they would rent a room at the library and host the event themselves.
Open Cathedral, a relatively new church which meets in a local elementary school, will host the event on June 15thbecause “We must never stop striving for safe spaces for our kids to be unique and loved no matter what.” The church’s pastor, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, said he founded the church because he “was tired of church sucking.” On its website, the church claims to be “open and affirming,” saying that they want “to be ever more open to and affirming of all people by embracing similarities and embracing differences in age, race, ethnicity, income level, ability, sexual orientation, and gender expression.”
The city announced the library would not be hosting the event late last week. Mayor Troy Hill said, “Our library, which is run by a company contracted by the City, chose to wade into social issues water without approval from City Staff. Since then it has led to predictable outrage and divineness that is the reason to avoid these issues. I would be curious if those favoring ‘inclusiveness’ would feel the same had it been storytelling time about the life of Donald Trump, or how those who want it canceled would feel about canceling a story of guns in America. We have lost our ability to discuss with respect for opposing views.”
Drag Queen Story Hours have created controversy around the country in the last year. Schools and public libraries have come under fire for hosting the events. The Houston Public Library had to apologize recently for an event where one of the performers reading to the children was a registered sex offender who had sexually assaulted a 9-year-old.

The Good News
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.
THE GOOD NEWS
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.
- God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
- The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
- But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-4; 2cor 5:21
All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.
'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '
