Jacksonville Church Saves LGBT Prom After Rabid Anti-Gay "Activist Mommy" Forces Library To Cancel

Jacksonville Church Saves LGBT Prom After Rabid Anti-Gay “Activist Mommy” Forces Library To Cancel

Two weeks ago we reported about Elizabeth Johnston the rabidly anti-gay right wing extremist who goes by the name “The Activist Mommy,” who asked her of Facebook followers to call and harass a Jacksonville, Florida library that was holding a LGBT Prom for local teens.

The library bowed to pressure and canceled the prom which led Johnson to declare herself victorious over the “perversion is taking place in a taxpayer funded library.”

But in the end Johnson lost and she lost BIG. The 100-plus LGBT teens who planned to attend Storybook Pride Prom got their special night after all when the Buckman Bridge Unitarian Universalist Church in Jacksonville stepped in to host the LGBT event instead.

According to Grace Repass, the church board unanimously supported the decision to offer space for the event. “It was the right thing to do,” Repass told The Washington Post. “The LGBT+ youth in our community deserve to have their prom and we wanted to support them. We see our church as a safe place for people who are figuring out who they are. Our Unitarian Universalist values call us to respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person. So, it’s a matter of integrity — to act in alignment with who we say we are.”

Over 50 volunteers from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office officers, LGBT veterans, and private security workers helped pull the last minute event together and to keep the teens safe from unhinged Johnson and her minions.

“The inside was so positive and electric,” said BeBe Deluxe, a drag queen who appeared at the event. “Everyone was smiling. Lots of moms were crying happy tears. There were kids dancing, laughing and socializing as if nothing had even happened that week. Some of the youth had never met another gay person their age before and this event helped them make friends.”

Elizabeth Johnson still claims victory for having the prom cancelled at the Jacksonville library and has not updated her Activist Mommy Facebook page which she uses for far right attacks and anti-LGBT propaganda that her hate was defeated and by a church no less.

Library Cancels LGBT Prom After ‘Activist Mommy’ Launches Anti-Gay ‘Perversion’ Attack Campaign Using Facebook

Library Cancels LGBT Prom After ‘Activist Mommy’ Launches Anti-Gay ‘Perversion’ Attack Campaign Using Facebook

The Florida Times-Union reports:

Beatrice Palmer cleared her schedule for Friday evening. Among a typical busy week of drag gigs, she planned to make an appearance at a prom night before her next show. The local drag entertainer and producer wanted to be there for the 100 teenagers who signed up to attend the Storybook Pride Prom at Riverside’s Willowbranch Library dressed as their favorite book characters or in drag Friday night.

After the Jacksonville Public Library canceled the night of music, dancing and costumes Monday morning, Palmer wants to reschedule the event. The decision came Monday morning after the library received hundreds of phone calls supporting and protesting the Storybook Pride Prom. Hundreds commented on and shared the library’s Facebook post canceling the dance to express their disappointment.

Elizabeth Johnston, a popular blogger and author who goes by “The Activist Mommy,” asked her hundreds of thousands of Facebook followers in a post Friday to call Willow branch and “express your disgust that this perversion is taking place in a taxpayer funded library.” Johnston did not return the Times-Union’s request for comment before publication.

Johnson used Facebook as a major tool in her attack by doxing the library and publishing its phone number . Facebook would not respond or remove the reported posts from Back2Stonewall. Harassment, bullying, and hate speech are all against Facebook’s terms of service.

Said Johnson:

Christians have been complacent, tolerant, and silent for far too long. If you love the citizens of our nation, if you love the children and the drag queens and the gay pride dancers, then you will fight for a world where this sin is no longer promoted.

MASSIVE FAIL: 10’s of People Attend Right Wing’s Ex-Gay “Freedom March” – [Video]

 

A crowd of about only 36 people showed up for yesterdays much hyped right-wing ex-LGBT “Freedom March.” at the National Sylvan Theater yesterday for those who say that they no longer identifying as gay or transgender “by the grace and power of Jesus Christ,”

The event was co-sponsored by Voice of the Voiceless, which has previously advocated for forms of conversion therapy on college campuses but says its mission is to “to defend the rights of former homosexuals, individuals with unwanted same-sex attraction, and their families.”

Jeffrey McCall, a former transgender rights activist and organizer of the event, shared his story, which seemed to have taken a sharp turn from his days of trans-advocacy. Wearing a red shirt emblazoned with “#Jesus,” he stood before the small crowd at the National Mall and said he had left his gay identity of 12 years behind.

“Everyone has marches, all kinds of views and opinions,” McCall told said, explaining his decision to hold the event. “So I said, ‘I don’t really know about a march for people coming out of the LGBT [community] to follow Jesus so I want to do that.’

Also in attendance was an “ex-gay” survivor of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.

Luis Ruiz, who survived Orlando, Florida’s horrific Pulse Nightclub massacre two years ago where 49 were killed, said, “I should have been number 50!”

“Going through old pictures of the night of Pulse, I remember my struggles of perversion, heavy drinking to drown out everything and having promiscuous sex that led to HIV.. My struggles were real! The enemy had its grip, and now God has taken me from that moment and has given me Christ Jesus.”

One of the strangest speakers at the event had to be extreme right-wing conservative bat-shit crazy  blogger Elizabeth Johnston, commonly known as “The Activist Mommy,” who explained that she considers herself an ally, “to one of the most marginalized and censored groups in our culture, and that is the ex-homosexual.”

“I am pro-choice,” she added. “I believe those who choose to engage in homosexual sin also have the right not to engage in homosexuality, and they have the choice to seek therapy for their unnatural and unwanted desires.”

“I am tolerant. I want homosexuals to have the freedom to speak their mind and beliefs. Do we not? And I believe those who believe who believe homosexuality is a sin against God also have the right under God and under our first amendment to speak our beliefs,” she concluded. “That is tolerance.”

The handful of activists marched from the National Mall to the White House, drawing an audience with chants like “Freedom in Christ, it’s so nice.”

 

 

KKK-ristian Right Blogger “Activist Mommy”: Gays Are Teaching Our Kids In School How To “engage in oral and anal sex”

Yesterday raging anti-gay loon Kristian Johnston aka “Activist Mommy” who hail’s from Columbus, Ohio (which also happens to be the hometown of anti-gay harpy Linda Harvey of Mission:America) appeared on FRC hate group leader Tony Perkins’ radio show to promote her coming “Sex Ed Sit-Out.”

Via the Family Research Council:

“Would you believe that groups like the Human Rights Campaign, a radical, leftist LGBT organization, and Planned Parenthood are working in concert together and sneaking into the schools — claiming to be abstinence-only education. And do you know what they consider ‘abstinence-only’ to be? Teaching kids how to masturbate with each other and engage in oral and anal sex.

“Not to mention that the Human Rights Campaign, of course, is encouraging kids to question their gender through ‘anti-bullying’ programs. And parents don’t know this is taking place! They are very sneaky with the language, they change the names of the programs so that they can’t trace the programs… This is outrageous, and we aren’t going to stand for it. Our kids’ innocence is not for sale.”

They have classes in anal sex now! Damn. I had to learn the hard way!
