At the end of the article you will read what is behind this. A woman demands that the LGBTQ+ materials with stories about or include LGBTQ+ characters be removed and banned from everywhere because “I will not raise kids in a county that has sexual-oriented books on the counter,” she asserted. She told the group they need “to understand that God’s judgment is for Christians and non-Christians, and a fear of the Lord, if it’s not upon you, it will be upon you in hell.” This is not her church and she is not saying her kids shouldn’t be able to read the books, she is demanding that your kids not be able to read them either. Did you notice she goes on to say that judgement is coming for Christians and non-Christians implying that you non-Christians had better live by my church doctrines and rules. Republican elected office holders like DeathSantis have opened the flood gates and let the hyper religious think they now hove more rights than anyone else in the country, in fact they have the right to force you / your family to follow their rules. How long until these people insist you go to their church even if you are not of their religion? In some Islamic countries there is a tax on anyone not Muslim simply to be allowed to exist. First they came for the trans kids, then they came for the entire LGBTQ+, now they are moving the goal to enforcing their “morality from 2,500 years ago” on everyone. Hugs
A woman came to a board of trustees meeting and trounced conservative Christians after a county’s library director was driven from his job for refusing to take down a Pride display.
Maury County, Tennessee Library Director Zachary Fox resigned last week after getting pressured by a group of residents who said that the LGBTQ-themed books were inappropriate, according to WSMV-4. Fox said that his last day working would be tomorrow, October 28, but that he would stay until a replacement could be found.
“Coming to this decision has been incredibly difficult, but it is in the best interest of my family and my own health and well being,” he wrote.
Maury County Commissioner Aaron Miller – who runs the local organization Foundation for Liberty and Freedom – was at the center of the controversy, calling on Fox to resign.
“The library invested your tax dollars into a book display for LGBT History Month,” Miller told the Epoch Times. “This was surprising, considering that June is already Pride Month, a period of celebration for the LGBT community.”
Miller said that the materials were “child-targeted.”
“As a father, my line in the sand was crossed when the library exhibited a bright, colorful display of no less than 28 books for this past Pride Month, all of which were written and marketed specifically for minors, especially young children,” he said.
Last night the Maury County Board of Trustees held a meeting that got heated. And one woman – identified as Jessee Graham – is going viral for her righteously angry speech about the people who drove Fox from his job.
“Our town has never seen so much homophobic crap as we have since Miller came along,” Graham said. “These people have been with us this entire time and we have never had a problem with it. They have never done any of the vile and disgusting things that that man and his weird cronies have leaked out of their mouths.”
“I’ve never been sexually assaulted at a drag show, but I have been in church. Twice!” she continued, adding that the church “told me it was my fault.”
She called out the group’s homophobia, accusing them of wanting to “completely annihilate a group of human beings who just wanna exist.” She said that if any of her four kids are “part of this community, they will be lucky because there is not a whole lot of families that would love their child unconditionally.”
“And the fact that they want to take that away from children, that is child abuse, to immediately tell your child that he is wrong for feeling like he doesn’t belong in conversion therapy.”
The board approved Fox’s resignation.
Earlier this month, a woman who introduced herself as Stephanie went on a diatribe at a meeting discussing LGBTQ books in the library system in Maury County that was caught on video.
“I will not raise kids in a county that has sexual-oriented books on the counter,” she asserted. She told the group they need “to understand that God’s judgment is for Christians and non-Christians, and a fear of the Lord, if it’s not upon you, it will be upon you in hell.”
The woman said she represented “every law-abiding, taxpaying citizen here in Maury County,” then told her would-be constituents, “you are blind” not to see that “when perversion permeates our county, that’s when the devil gets our children.”
“Obviously, revelation prophecies are occurring right before our eyes,” she said.
