Drag Queen Story Hour ProtestBy Cesar Franco

On June 9, 2019, Tradition, Family and Property—Texas and its America Needs Fatima friends gathered in front of the J. Erik Johnson Central Library in Dallas to protest against a Drag Queen Story Hour. Thirty-five Texans braved epic winds and rain to pray the rosary in protest. They carried banners and signs, sang songs and chanted slogans categorically rejecting the shameless corrupting of little children in public libraries.

The Drag Queen Story Hour began in San Francisco and has opened chapters nationwide. The goal is to provide children with queer role models and impose upon them the acceptance of sexual deviancy. This is done by bringing in men dressed as women to read gender-bending stories to little children at public libraries.

Dylan Pontiff, a drag queen in Lafayette, Louisiana, is on public record saying that the story hours, “are going to be the grooming of the next generation.” If such words were not enough to take them seriously, two drag queens at the Freed Montrose Neighborhood Library in Houston were exposed as convicted pedophiles!

Slowly becoming aware of this offensive, Americans are resisting and successfully canceling these shameless events. Drag Queen Story Hours have been canceled in Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Ohio, and other places. Indeed, peaceful protests work!

Why Our Lady Weeps

 

Advertisements for the story hour at the J. Erik Johnson Central Library disappeared from the Internet soon after word spread about the protest. Despite the attempt to slide the DQSH in under the radar, the protest rosary rally took place.

About midway through the rosary, violent winds of up to 50 mph suddenly interrupted the rally unleashing a lot of rain. The rally participants continued unfazed, moving to an alcove in front of the library where they were shielded from the rain and wind. The scene was almost apocalyptic as trees bent in the wind, hobos scurried for cover, umbrellas and other objects flew by! All the while, the prayer warriors prayed their Our Fathers and Hail Marys. It reminded those present of the furious spiritual battle taking place in America.

The rally ended as the winds calmed and the sun came out. Many stayed and chatted for a while enjoying the moment. The words of one protester about the struggle to resist the perversion of children in libraries were indicative: “I am sick and tired of sin being promoted and not doing anything about it. That is why I am out here. To do something about it.”

His words certainly resonated with all those present.

TFP hike By John Paul Tomba

On June 6, 2019, Tradition, Family, Property—Louisiana and TFP-Texas joined forces for a “Call to Chivalry Day” in Lumberton, Texas. The venue was the Terra Maria (Land of Mary) Ranch, owned and kindly made available by the Dr. Odis Gossett family.

As with Call to Chivalry Days in Lafayette, Louisiana, the event was designed to give a small group of Catholic boys a taste of the bigger Call to Chivalry Camp that will be held later this summer.

Ten boys ages 11–17 converged on the Land of Mary from Louisiana and Texas. After a pizza dinner, all helped gather wood for a campfire outside. The prospect of a campfire in humid, 95-degree weather left some without enthusiasm. However, when the s’more supplies were unveiled, the heat was quickly forgotten. The campfire and evening concluded with the reading of a selection from The Forty Dreams of St. John Bosco.

Friday was thankfully much cooler and a perfect day for a field trip. The destination came as a surprise since no one suspected there exist miraculous springs in Nacogdoches, Texas. The springs are called the “Eyes of Fr. Margil de Jesus.” The “eyes” are two separate springs and have been flowing since 1718. Read the entire story of the miracle here  . The outing was followed by a meatless, packed lunch, and a stroll through the nearby Oak Grove Cemetery where the graves of three of the signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence can be found.

The hour ride back to Terra Maria Ranch was spent solving riddles and playing card games. Upon arrival, the young warriors had their fill of glorious sword battles on a sun-soaked battlefield. Afterwards, much to everyone’s delight, a wonderful spread of lemonade, ice tea, cakes, and cookies greeted everyone in the kitchen. The day came to a close with a presentation about symbolism, using the example of two eternal enemies; the lion and the hyena, followed by a Chinese shadow-show relating the story of Spain’s Don Pelayo and the miracle of Covadonga.

Thus ended the Call to Chivalry Day in the Land of Mary.

Norman Fulkerson American Knight By Zechariah Long

On June 1, Tradition Family Property—Texas hosted two talks by long-time TFP member Norman Fulkerson for friends and supporters at the Historic Italian Cultural and Community Center in Houston. Mr. Fulkerson is the author of the award-winning book An American Knight: The Life of Colonel John W. Ripley (USMC) and is a contributor to Crusade Magazine.

As attendees arrived that morning, it promised to be a very blessed and lively conference.

What is True Happiness?

In his first talk, Mr. Fulkerson spoke about “What is True Happiness?” Contrary to what Hollywood tells us, happiness does not consist in having many material possessions. Indeed, many Hollywood stars, athletes and music celebrities that “have it made,” according to the world, commit suicide. One example of this was Robin Williams. Mr. Fulkerson explained that true happiness comes from the selfless giving of oneself to God and the fulfillment of our mission on earth. This entails suffering for the love of God and results in giving life a purpose and meaning.

talking in hall

After the first talk, attendees conversed over coffee and refreshments. Everyone enjoyed being with each other in the Catholic ambience. Such happiness is endangered so much by the social media craze of today.

Lessons from a War Hero

Mr. Fulkerson’s second talk was “Lessons from the Life of Colonel John Ripley.” He showed how this great Vietnam War hero can inspire us in the cultural battles of today. This outstanding marine is most known for single-handedly blowing up the bridge at Dong Ha during the North Vietnamese 1972 Easter offensive. His feat prevented the enemy’s victory.

Towards the middle of the battle, he was extremely fatigued and realized that he could not finish the job on his own. He turned to God and the Blessed Mother shouting: “Jesus, Mary, get me there! Jesus, Mary, get me there…” He prayed this prayer as he placed detonator charges beneath the bridge by holding onto the I-beams and hand walking the length of the bridge back and forth as his feet dangled 40 feet above the river.

Mr. Fulkerson also mentioned the moral courage of Col. Ripley, who displayed even greater courage by taking a public stance against homosexuals serving in the military. Mr. Fulkerson explained: “This man’s courage on and off the battlefield serves as a very good lesson for those involved in the cultural battle today.”

Hail Holy Queen

The event finished with the singing of the hymn “Salve Regina” in front of a copy of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima. The attendees then left reinvigorated for the spiritual battle required of a faithful Catholic today.

Most people would not associate the French Quarter in New Orleans with purity. However, this infamous neighborhood is home to a famous monument honoring someone renowned for the angelic virtue.

The golden equestrian statue of Saint Joan of Arc gleams in the morning sun in a small park near the French Market. The Maid of Orleans overlooks pedestrians and motorists passing all day and night.

On May 30, 2019, members of Tradition, Family, Property—Louisiana and the Prayer Warriors of Saint Joan of Arc gathered at this monument. They prayed for the conversion of New Orleans begging the intercession of the Maid of Orleans.

The prayer program included the most Holy Rosary, the Litany of Saint Joan of Arc and other prayers. To conclude, a newly-written hymn, Pure Maid of France, was sung in her honor.

Locals and tourists walked by as curious onlookers took photos. TFP members distributed a devotional picture of Saint Joan of Arc.

With the impurity and immorality of the French Quarter, prayers to Saint Joan of Arc are more urgent than ever, especially for the young. May Saint Joan intercede to bring a culture of purity here in America.

Protest "Hail Satan?"
By Zechariah Long

On May 29, 2019, a brave band of protesters organized by Tradition Family Property—Texas gathered outside the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Houston, Texas, to protest the documentary film, Hail Satan?

Protest "Hail Satan?"

The comedy-documentary is a film about a group known as The Satanic Temple (TST). The group has been promoting Satanic principles in an effort to destroy the concept of America as one nation under God. The film, which was released on Good Friday, seeks to mainstream the idea of Satanism in America.

The weather for the protest was fair as the line of prayer warriors set up holding signs and rosaries.

The reaction from the public was very favorable with the exception of one “tolerant” man covered in tattoos, taking pictures of the rally while cursing the participants with foul language. So much for the idea that Satanists are just “friendly people who only want recognition like everybody else.”

Why Our Lady Weeps

 

A couple waiting at the traffic light rolled down their car window and asked “Why are you out here?” A rally participant explained that the documentary “Hail Satan?” was showing inside the theater. The couple responded positively and thanked the protesters for what they were doing.

Thumbs up from car

The rally received many other such signs of support from the public. Many passersby gave thumbs up and honks in support. A group of teenage girls, for example, applauded the effort and one girl said: “Oh no! That’s bad. Satan is no good!”

The rally ended after the rosary and other prayers. Participants stayed a while and talked among themselves. There was the normal enthusiasm that comes with defending God’s honor in public.

May Our Lady accept this rally of protest and reparation and hasten to bring the triumph of her Immaculate Heart promised at Fatima. As Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira once prayed: “Come, Lady and Mother, come as soon as possible. …Consider, Lady and Mother, that everything is extremely ripe for punishing Satan and his henchmen, liberating thy children, and establishing thy Reign.”
