Hierarchs and laity from the schismatic “Orthodox Church of Ukraine” are currently on what was advertised as “the first great pilgrimage to Greece after the recognition of our Orthodox Church of Ukraine by the Greek Orthodox Church.” The trip is scheduled for November 9-15, and was originally to include visits to Holy Trinity Monastery on Aegina, where St. Nektarios’ relics repose, the Monastery of St. David of Evia, the relics of St. Alexei the Man of God, St. Philaret the Merciful, icons painted by the Evangelist Luke, the relics and cross of St. Andrew the First-Called Apostle, and more. There were also statements that the hierarchs hoped to serve at the holy sites. However, according to media reports, that hope has not been realized, reports the Information-Education Department of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Ironically, the two “hierarchs” in question are the only two bishops to have departed from the canonical Ukrainian Church to join the schismatic OCU, Simeon Shostasky and Alexander Drabinko. Had they remained in the canonical Church of Christ, they would have been welcome to serve the Liturgy. Although the majority of Greek hierarchs spoke in favor of recognizing the OCU at the Bishops’ Council on October 12, and although Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens has officially recognized the schismatics, not everyone in the Greek Church is ready to open their arms to the OCU, knowing that this will only exacerbate inter-Orthodox relations. Although the OCU representatives had announced that they planned to concelebrate on the island of Aegina for the new calendar feast of St. Nektarios of Aegina, the program was changed, and they did not even visit Aegina, the Ukrainian Church site reports with reference to social media reports. His Eminence Metropolitan Luke of Zaporozhye also mentions that the schismatics were not allowed to venerate the relics of St. Nektarios. It was recently reported that Metropolitan Ephraim of Hydra, Spetses, and Aegina had reportedly asked the OCU hierarchs not to serve in the monastery, as many of his clergy were against it, and he wanted Holy Trinity Monastery and the relics of St. Nektarios to remain accessible to everyone. As the Ukrainian Church site reports, the Telegram channel Pravblog reports that a similar situation with the services occurred in Patras. It was previously reported that the local faithful in Patras intended to prevent the schismatics from entering their Church of St. Andrew. In connection with the protests of local clergy and changes in the schedule, the delegation went to the Monastery of the Annunciation in Nea Makri, but Shostasky and Drabinko were not allowed to serve there either at the Sunday service, though they were allowed to remain in the church.

It continues to be a deeply disturbing mystery that parents continue to willingly march their children down to the local library for the purposes of having a grown man dressed in the misogynist equivalent of blackface to read a story and perform for them. Not only are drag queen storytime events absurd, immoral, and highly inappropriate for children at face value, they have been repeatedly proven to be dangerous venues for predators to sexually groom young children, all while library staff and parents lovingly affirm the whole thing in the name of “tolerance.” Even after such events have turned out to feature convicted sex offenders and performers who allow children to lay on top of them, it seems no scandal is too disgusting to keep parents from bringing their children to these disgusting events. Perhaps this one will. According to a Facebook post from the Child Protection League (CPL), a pair of drag queens, using the stage names “Sasha Sosa” and “Gemini Valentine,” was invited to indoctrinate children story hours in branches of the Hennepin County Library in Hennepin County, Minnesota earlier this month. In the post, CPL attached a damning, yet mercifully blurred photo in which “Sosa” apparently flashes his crotch to a room full of preschoolers at the Ridgedale Hennepin County Library on October 17th. How on earth can any parent sit through such a thing without scooping up their child and fleeing from the scene? To say nothing of alerting authorities! If this man had flashed a child in the grocery store, he’d be in handcuffs, but because this took place in an “educational” environment, it is somehow acceptable to these sick people! In another photo, “Valentine” is seen preparing to read to a group of small children at the Hopkins Hennepin County public library on October 5th, wearing a disgustingly revealing spandex leotard that would not be appropriate for any man, woman, or beast to wear…anywhere. Gemini Valentine" adult drag performer read to preschoolers at the Hopkins Hennepin County public library on Oct 5. Please note: These photos have not been edited, blurred or altered in any way. According to CPL, both men appear to only be 18 or 19 years old and both are frequent performers at strip clubs, apparently making them a natural choice for children’s entertainers to the library board. As we have been reporting for years, a consistent theme of such events is to feature entertainers who normally frequent erotic adult clubs. While the library appears to have canceled two of their upcoming story time events, a sign posted at the library states that they will be rescheduled soon. In a comment on their post, CPL added that “The Hennepin County Library does no formal background checks on these men either,” which, as we’ve previously reported, is a common failure among libraries who host these vile events on top of their affinity for inviting male strippers to participate. Another comment from a Facebook user claimed that the individual called Hennepin County Library and spoke with the assistant to the library’s interim director, Janet Mills, who said that if the person wanted to “rent a room at the library and invite children to watch me have sex with a horse,” they would be allowed to “as long as the horse did not kick or harm anyone.” Obviously we cannot verify this story, and we can only pray it’s a joke. Folks, these story hours are harming children. No child has the psychological fortitude to withstand seeing a drag queen’s crotch without trauma. No child can be left unscathed by the blatant sexual grooming these events were obviously designed for. No child is immune to the inevitable damage caused by exposure to such debauchery. We need to fight this with everything we’ve got. Call the Hennepin County Library and respectfully demand that they permanently cancel these vile events. Call your own local library and let them know that you will not tolerate a drag queen story time in your city. Sign our petition to send a clear message to the American Library Association, who fully endorses these grooming sessions, that parents do not want public libraries to corrupt and confuse their children for the sake of the progressive agenda. If even the parents of these poor children won’t protect them from these predators, it’s up to us. What kind of world are we going to leave behind if we don’t do something to stop the dangerous trajectory we are on?
