Inviting a drag queen to perform for children is offensive

Doctors do not warn their patients against unhealthy behaviors because they hate them. Lawyers do not warn their clients against unhealthy behaviors because they hate them. Mothers and fathers do not warn their children against unhealthy behaviors because they hate them. Christians do not warn their neighbors against unhealthy behaviors because they hate them. Christians, above all, want what is best for their neighbors.

Jesus especially blessed little children during His earthly ministry and issued a vivid warning to those who would endanger the innocence of children. Each child deserves the protection and care not only of his parents, but also of the community. This fact is recognized in the Montana law against obscenity which makes special mention of obscenity aimed at children. Inviting a drag queen to perform for children is intended to introduce children to sexually explicit themes.

Since Zoo Montana of Billings invited a drag queen to do this on June 22, it must be stated that such a performance is unhealthy for the children, an offense to God, and to all decent people.
