Yes, and we all need to make sure these anti-drag liars get called out.Delete
I’ve been told that inmates hate pedophiles more than cops in prison. Hope that’s true.ReplyDelete
This side of the pond many years ago one Ian Brady and his oppo Myra Hindley murdered 5+ kids in the Manchester area; several had been sexually assaulted. Brady was sent to prison for life. One day, whilst making mail bags, the other prisoners got hold of Brady and sewed his hand in the machine while the prison officers watched.Delete
I think that's true Kris.Delete
Just reading that makes me want to throw up!!! These people are often in a position of trust! Those poor children!ReplyDelete
Trusting a priest or rabbi or pastor or minister is not a good thing.Delete
If those religious zealots had been Democrat the Repugnant party would be screaming the house down. As it is, there is a deathly silence.....probably because their voice boxes are sore shrieking about those "evil" drag queens "grooming" kids at story time, when their parents are present.ReplyDelete
The party of religious freedom and family values will never admit the rape of children happens in churches and not at drag shows.Delete
But we mustn't confuse them with the facts.ReplyDelete
Thay can't handle facts.Delete
At least these guys were caught and most are facing justice in this world. Since they purport to hold Christian beliefs, one hopes they will also burn in hell.ReplyDelete
It's terrifying. My heart goes out to all the victims who will wrestle with memories of the abuse for the rest of their lives.ReplyDelete
Especially at the hands of men who were supposed to look out for them and protect them.Delete
And February is a short month! Ugh, these "men" are despicable and the long-term damage they have inflicted...it's truly heart-breaking.ReplyDelete
I was kinda shocked at how some of them were given relatively short sentences, given how they've hurt these children.Delete
No lies were detected.ReplyDelete
But Drag Queens, AMIRIGHT????
It makes me so very mad!!!
You just know the GOP and Republicans will never go after churches or gun nuts no matter what kind or, and how many, lives they destroy, but drag queens ....Delete
For years this was never publicized. Now, thanks to the Internet, their evil ways are ending.ReplyDelete
I don't know if it's ending, or if this is just the tip of a vile iceberg.Delete
And the Churches wonder why the masses are turning away from them.ReplyDelete
Because of their lies, hypocrisy and greed, no doubt.Delete
I wish someone would start making calendars each year with these people on them. I would gladly go door to door trying to sell or give them away to people. Just to get this information out to others.ReplyDelete
Astonishing...and yet, not.ReplyDelete
