After cancelling a planned drag queen performance for kids at the Soldotna Public Library last month, a radical LGBTQ organization has finally found a local church willing to host its story hour event for area children.

Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna has agreed to open its doors to the so-called “Love Your Neighbor Storytime” on Saturday, Feb. 10, in its fellowship hall.

Christ Lutheran has a history of promoting social issues associated with the far left’s cultural agenda surrounding human sexuality, and its website notes that it strives to “embrace all” genders, sexual orientations, and gender identities, among various other intersecting identities.

The parish is part of the larger Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), which is considered a strong ally of radical LGBTQ activist groups such as the Human Rights Campaign, because it promotes LGBTQ youth summer camps and sex education that affirms LGBTQ sexuality. ELCA churches also ordain LGBTQ clergy and celebrate gay “marriages.”

The upcoming story time is being hosted by Soldotna Pride, which recently held a “Happy New Queer” winter celebration with drag events in a local grocery store and gay bar.

The Feb. 10 church event doesn’t explicitly mention the presence of drag queens, but when Soldotna Pride cancelled the children’s drag queen performance in January the group vowed to double down and reschedule another event in the near future.

A notice for the Feb. 10 show claims it will feature “great books and local leaders.” Children are encouraged to dress up as their “favorite storybook character or a Valentine!”

“Kids, bring your parents, too!” the promotional adds. “This is a safe and welcoming space for ALL!”

This is not the first time Soldotna Pride has targeted young children in promoting various sexual identities and expressions. The group’s annual “Pride in the Park,” has includes radical LGBTQ activists parading through town before gathering at a local park for “all ages” variety shows that include sexually suggestive drag queen dancers and LGBTQ-themed costume contests.

In recent years, the event has sparked heated controversy for hosting performances in which one man men dressed in a costume that appeared to be a miniskirt and a thong as he twerked and did backflips in front of young children. Another performance had a man in a leather miniskirt gyrating in front of minors.

Traditionally, LGBTQ groups have focused on pushing various sexual identities and expressions via parades and programming scheduled across month of June (aka – “Pride Month”). In organizing winter events, Soldotna Pride is signaling that it is now expanding its public promotion of LGBTQ sexuality throughout the year.

    Oh, how sad.
    It’s time to bring the Rosary to the public square, my friends!

    • Steve P Peterson says:

      Bible is better.

      • Coliseum in the Snow says:

        Steve, the Rosary is Biblical.
        Each mystery is rooted in an event that occurs in the Bible. Our Lady has shown that when we ask her intercession, she will act! The Battle of Lepanto and the Battle of Vienna come first to mind.

  • Alexander Dolitsky says:

    This is a complete breakdown of moral values in our religious institutions. Sad.

    • Dee Cee says:

      Just you wait… it’s only a matter of time before Bellisario openly blesses a gay marriage. The leadership in the Catholic church is 1000% on board with this kind of nonsense, to the intense chagrin of true believing priests and lay people.

  • Steve P Peterson says:

    Yeah, that church and the Methodist Church are all on board with the alphabet apostasy. It’s not a public institution and they have a right to do that at their own expense. If parents are foolish enough to bring their children there, then that is on them. Too bad for the kids.

  • John J Otness says:

    A church of. satan not of CHRIST ….

  • Lucinda says:

    Teaching young people to love their neighbor seems like a good idea

    • Daddio says:

      Love and Lust are different things.

      • Mike says:

        and water is wet. your comment has nothing to do with what you replied to

      • Lucinda says:

        Daddio, let me read my post again. Pretty simple. Dang can’t find lust in there at all. Hess it’s just with you.

      • Daddio says:

        The article is about LGBTQ:SLFNGFSDHG nonsense. Lucinda implied lust when she said, “loving your neighbor” in reply to the article. I was responding to the implication.
        If she wasn’t implying it, then to love your neighbor would mean to tell them the truth which is antithetical to the message of the article.

  • Johnny says:

    Pure blasphemy.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Communist church has spoken! Where the hell is the voice of the true church speaking truth to these evils??????!

  • Daddio says:

    The ELC (Evangelical Lutheran Church) broke off form the LCMS (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod) so that the ELC could pursue its sinful desires. Oh how they have fallen. What a pitiful shame they have become.

    • Yes, I said it says:

      Martin Luther himself was chasing after the fulfillment of his lustful desires when he broke with the Catholic Church…and the splintering continues to this day.

      • Daddio says:

        His lustful desires to cease indulgences, church corruption, artifact worship, and all other manner of nonsense? Sorry, don’t buy it.

    • Jean Ann Henry says:

      So so right. Very sad

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    The silence and perverse nature of the church is directly to blame for the holocaust! We’re fast approaching another one, the church is guilty again!

  • Lucinda says:

    Is there a difference between the People’s Lutheran Church and the Lutheran Church for People?

  • V says:

    Clown world

  • Didaskalos says:

    “Drag is to women what blackface is to Black people — a costume, a caricature, a mockery, a cheapening, a dehumanization.”
    So of course a women-demeaning ELCA loves it.

  • Lauren says:

    The ELCA is making the other several denominations of the Lutheran Church look bad. Please do not judge the Lutheran Church based on the ELCA, whose denomination had a falling out, which resulted in a loss of membership of the ELCA a few years back.

  • Lucinda says:

    Daddio. The sense of lust you describe is a product of you own mind. Love and lust are not the same thing for heck’s sake. The love thy neighbor verse is in the Bible
