A friend of mine recently sent me a petition to Governor Cox requesting he and other leaders do something to stop the grooming of our children in Utah. Somehow Cox, and many others, including LDS Church leaders, do not seem to see the harm of this latest strange push to normalize gender confusion and sexual deviance among our innocent children. Some of the comments on my friend’s petition highlight the state of mind of such child grooming supporters.
One commenter says: Okay, and why can’t drag queens read to kids? They are literally just wearing a dress and wig and reading kids books. I see no harm in it. I would like like to ask where the danger in allowing kids to be read to is.
Another: What the F— is wrong with this image? What is going on here that bothers you so much?
Who would have thought just a few years ago that any of this craziness would be normalized, especially in Utah?
There was a drag queen event held in the quaint small Mormon town of Logan, Utah recently that was sponsored by the once family friendly Elements restaurant, just next to the Mormon Marriott, both of which are owned by a local LDS businessman. Strangely, I’m not aware of any boycotts or local backlash like we’ve seen with national brands such as Budweiser, Target, Disney, etc. Perhaps LDS people and Church leaders in Utah just don’t think it’s all that big of a deal. I personally will never eat at Elements again, just out of principle.
Meanwhile here’s what IS happening in Utah concurrent with this disturbing trend.
Headline from last week:
And even more ironic, there’s this headline also from last week:
A Utah school district removed the Bible from some school libraries. Now it’s received a request to review the Book of Mormon
Good is evil and evil is good. And no one seems to be too concerned here in Utah… as prophecy is being fulfilled and as our nation is ripening for destruction, which will begin “in His House” (T&C 124:6).
The mood we are now witnessing makes me think of the scripture in the Book of Mormon that speaks of a similar time on this land when such wickedness had also gotten above its previous nation’s people. Their goal, just like the Gadiantons of today, was to eradicate all goodness and “authority” from society in order to normalize all things evil:
…Behold, the pride of this nation, or the people of the Nephites, hath proved their destruction, except they should repent. Pray for them, my son, that repentance may come unto them. But behold, I fear lest the spirit hath ceased striving with them. And in this part of the land, they are also seeking to put down all power and authority which cometh from God, and they are denying the holy ghost. And after rejecting so great a knowledge, my son, they must perish soon, unto the fulfilling of the prophecies which were spoken by the prophets, as well as the words of our Savior himself. Farewell, my son, until I shall write unto you or shall meet you again. Amen. (RE Moroni 8:5)
