Normally I’d never put myself in such a spiritually toxic environment. But I wanted to do my due diligence so my reporting on it would be accurate. I asked my guardian angel for protection and some of the Christian protestors outside the event were kind enough to pray that God would keep me safe. So I went in.

The show took place at Wealthy Street Theatre in Grand Rapids, Michigan — the city I grew up in and where I currently reside. It featured persons with Down syndrome from a U.K. drag troupe called “Drag Syndrome.” It also had non-Down syndrome performers.

The event quite justifiably garnered international headlines. Local media was abuzz too. But none of the press mentioned the verbal abuse some of the pro-LGBT folks who attended the performance hurled at the protestors outside — f-bombs, middle fingers, “Jesus freaks!” You name it. Hardly displays of tolerance, if you ask me.

Given that West Michigan is one of the state’s most religiously conservative areas, the decision to host the event there seems pretty obvious. Event organizers clearly wanted to kick sand in the eyes of the larger Christian community while helping along the normalization process of the LGBT agenda. It’s a classic Alinskyite tactic. And it’s clear Grand Rapids is a target on their list of places they want to further impose their perverted ideology.
