Kirk Cameron Story Hour Refused by Public Libraries That Host Drag Queen Story Hours

Lincoln Brown-Opinion : Dec 8, 2022  PJ Media

For example, the Rochambeau Public Library in Providence, RI, told Brave, "No, we will pass on having you run a program in our space. We are a very queer-friendly library. Our messaging does not align."

[] I don't think my local library has sponsored a drag queen story hour. I've never seen one advertised. But I also don't think that the community is quite ready for that, yet, despite the influx of California refugees. But such a thing may rear its makeup-laden head in the near future. And of course, libraries across the nation have hosted drag queen story hours, so Kirk Cameron came up with a response. (Image: Pexels-Pixabay)

It was not a protest or a confrontation. Cameron was not going to assemble a band of angry parents to storm library board meetings across the nation or establish a beachhead in parking lots next to the book drops. Cameron has published a new children's book called As You Grow. It is a book that highlights things such as family, faith, and Biblical wisdom.

It would appear that Cameron and his publisher, Brave, figured that if libraries would make time for drag queen story hours, they might be interested in doing the same for a book that champions traditional values. I think the Cameron camp may have known that this would be a quixotic effort, but it was a creative way to respond to the current fad of men in drag reading stories to kids. In many precincts, the response was what you would expect.

Fox News reports that Cameron and his publishers queried libraries across the nation to see if they would host a story hour. And at least 50 either said to go pound sand or didn't acknowledge the request. For example, the Rochambeau Public Library in Providence, RI, told Brave, "No, we will pass on having you run a program in our space. We are a very queer-friendly library. Our messaging does not align."

The publisher was told it could fill out a request form to reserve a space, but the request would be rejected. Similar, if somewhat more polite, responses came from the City Heights/Weingart Branch Library in San Diego, the Alameda County Library system, and a library in Scarsdale, NY. Each of these libraries hosts LGBTQ events, and a branch in San Lorenzo, CA, holds clinics and workshops to help people update their gender on legal documents. The Indianapolis Public Library System said that its current focus was on authors of color.

So far, Cameron has found no takers... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
