The spreading practice of men dressed in drag reading to very young children in public libraries -- and in some Barnes & Noble book stores -- is a way to "indoctrinate" kids into the LGBTQ world and imprint "perversion" in their young minds, said Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. He added that the entire experience is "like mental rape."
LaBarbera, whose organization defends the natural law, the natural family, and a biblical worldview, made his remarks during a June 25 interview on VCY America, hosted by Jim Schneider.
Commenting on the "Drag Queen Story Hours," LaBarbera said, “Like the public schools, the elites, the leftists running these libraries – and they’re social leftists, many of them, completely pro-LGBTQ – they view the children as, sort of, their children, in the sense that they don’t want the parents there."
"They want to be able to indoctrinate the children themselves," said LaBarbera. "It’s shocking that they’ve gone to this level of actually siccing the police on the parents."
"The left is willingly now putting these children in harm’s way," said LaBarbera. "They are not telling them the health risks, the immense health risks of homosexual behavior. So many issues on just health alone, not to mention morality and where the souls of these children are headed, if they’re promoted into this sinful lifestyle."
"They’re not interested in any of that," he said. "They just want to indoctrinate them into the LGBTQ lifestyle.”
When asked about why the LGBTQ activists are now going into libraries and book stores to interact with children, LaBarbera said, “This has become the latest cause of the left. Every time they win, they go on to something even more radical."
He then mentioned that during a previous interview, several months ago, a woman "called in and said, ‘I don’t understand, if blackface is wrong’ – imitating a black American – ‘then why is drag okay?’ In other words, you’re teaching these young children—you have these gaudy men who are in this caricature, this stereotypical ugly caricature mocking women—and you’re teaching that to children."
"The whole thing is so perverse and yet they think this is appropriate to teach their young children, to imprint in their young minds?" said LaBarbera. "This is like mental rape, Jim. This is awful that this is the latest cause of the left in this country.”
