TFP-Texas brought over 50 protesters to its rally.

On September 24, 2022, hundreds of protesters gathered in several groups in front of the “First Christian Church” in Katy, Texas to protest a “Drag Queen Bingo” event for children. The Church held the abominable show to raise money for clothing for children whose parents opposed their “gender transition.”

TFP-Texas brought over 50 protesters to its rally. It was the final protest among three held at the church. The first two attempted to dissuade the organizers from holding the event by showing the lack of support from the local people of Katy. Even with most traffic in front of the church honking in support of the campaign, the church officials doubled down, and held the “Drag Queen Bingo” anyway.

Several other groups held separate protests across the street from the church where the Drag event was held. In total, over 200 protesters were present. The other organizations included Moms for America, Mass Resistance and Save Texas Kids.

On the church grounds stood Antifa members dressed in black with face coverings, some of whom carried rifles and other weapons. Rainbow flags and the like marked the boundaries of the church property.

To the delight of all, the Harris County Police were present in force.

To the delight of all, the Harris County Police were present in force, keeping would-be attackers away from the peaceful, prayerful protests. 50 officers, thirty of which in full riot gear, occupied the median strips. Others stood by in vehicles.

The TFP rally also took place across the street, at a comfortable distance from the other groups. Despite soaring temperatures, the protesters expressed their joy at being there. The TFP standard, the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, the hymns of the bagpipes and the recitation of the rosary made for a serene, yet serious ambience. How different this scene was with the loud, ominous vulgarity of the Antifa crowd in front of the church.

At one point, everyone suddenly had trouble breathing and began tearing up and coughing.

A short distance down the street, someone set off what must have been a pepper bomb, the residue had blown downwind through the TFP rally. After twenty seconds, though it felt much longer, everything was fine. Everyone felt a surge of energy and continued the rosary at double the volume.

The rally concluded with the singing of the Salve Regina in a respectful, militant tone.

There were no further problems. The rally concluded with the singing of the Salve Regina in a respectful, militant tone. The TFP crowd thanked the brave police force by giving them three cheers. The police, visibly touched, saluted back in thanks.

Around fifty-five people gathered outside of the “First Christian Church” to protest an upcoming event called Drag Queen Bingo.

On Sunday Morning, September 18 around fifty-five people gathered outside of the “First
Christian Church” to protest an upcoming event called Drag Queen Bingo. The group’s website
and Facebook page advertise the September 24 event as suitable for “all ages.”

The Grooming of the Next Generation?

Similar “Drag” events, especially story hours target children. In 2018, drag queen Dylan Pontiff,
publicly defended a Drag Queen Story Hour at a hearing before the Lafayette, Louisiana City
Parish Council saying that “This is going to be the grooming of the next generation.”

Two drag queens who participated in Drag Events for children at Houston’s Freed Montrose
Library had histories of sexual crimes against minors. To Americans paying attention, exposing
children to drag culture is the LGBT movement’s latest effort to normalize its behavior.
Americans Fight Back

Seeing this threat, Americans have fought back with protests against LGBT drag events for
children. Since the start of September, drag shows have been cancelled in Chicago, Boise,
Idaho, Denton, Texas and Everett, Washington due to public outcry. This is proof that protests
and public pressure work.

LGBT Center Posing as a Christian Church?

On September 18, Tradition, Family, Property Texas and other local activists added their voices
to the outcry against the grooming of children at First Christian Church in Katy, Texas. A pride
flag flew on the churches lawn. The church promotes LGBT events on its website and Facebook
page. During the rosary rally protest, a few church members counter-protested and flew the
rainbow and transgender flags.

During the rosary rally protest, a few church members counter-protested and flew the rainbow and transgender flags.

The peaceful protest took place at the entrance of the church. Pro-family activists held signs
that said “Stop DRAG events for kids,” “Stop sexualizing children,” “Honk Against Drag Events
for Kids,” and “Male and Female He Created Them.” Participants prayed the rosary and sang
hymns, often accompanied by bagpipes.

“It is really a scandal that they are exposing children to drag culture,” said TFP volunteer Joseph
Gensens. Many protestors were indignant that “First Christian Church” even claimed to be
Christian while promoting the LGBT sinful lifestyle. “Grooming kids to accept homosexual sin is
child abuse,” affirmed Matthew from Richmond, Texas.

Protest Against Child-Grooming Bingo

First Christian Church’s website has the child-grooming bingo from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on
September 24. An adults-only version is offered from 8:00 p.m. onwards. Several groups have
announced they will protest the event.

“With Roe v Wade behind us, now is the time to charge forward against the culture of death.”

From July 16 through August 1, young volunteers with The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) campaigned throughout the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama against the sin of abortion. With the reversal of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court, their message was simple: the pro-life movement must not sit on its laurels. It must utilize the momentum gained from the Roereversal and advance.

A Time to Renew the Fight

“With Roe v Wade behind us, now is the time to charge forward against the culture of death,” said TFP caravanner William Gossett. “The rotten culture that leads to abortion is far from gone. While we thank God Roe was overturned, which fills us with great encouragement, we have a lot of work to do to make abortion unthinkable.”

For this reason, TFP volunteers campaigned in downtowns and busy intersections with big banners that read, “Roe v Wade Overturned. Thank God!” and “Pray and Act to End the Sin of Abortion.” They carried signs encouraging the public to honk and distributed flyers.

A Nation Divided

Lafayette, Louisiana was very symptomatic of the reactions received. The TFP volunteers unfurled their banners and signs at the intersection of Settlers Trace Boulevard and Ambassador Caffery Parkway. “You make me so happy to see you out here that I want to cry!” said one lady who got out of her car to come and thank the young men.

Meanwhile, lots of cars honked and waved. Occasional screams and obscene gestures came from enraged liberals. “I want to come back and run you over!” shouted one woman. Then two women arrived, wearing face masks and carrying hand-made pro-abortion signs. One read, “Catholics for Choice.” They were visibly bothered by the number of cars manifesting their approval for the TFP message. When TFP volunteer Rex Teodosio tried to engage them in discussion, they would remain silent or say, “abortion is women’s health.”

The weather constantly threatened to rain, and strong gusts of wind would occasionally blow. One such gust took the “Catholics for Choice” sign right out of the hands of the woman and blew it in the road. Five cars drove over it. “I don’t think God likes that sign,” said Rex Teodosio. At that moment, the wind picked up the sign and was caught by the grill of a passing car and disappeared from sight.

Majority Support

Everywhere the TFP caravanners went, the majority of the reactions were positive. People opened their doors to the young volunteers and provided lodging and food. “The support we had was truly something memorable,” said Luiz Solorzano. “It was humbling to see how much people were willing to help.”

In Tyler, Texas, a man showed up with two cases of cold Powerade. “This is the least I can do. . . I’ve seen you on YouTube. I am going to pick up my sons and come back. I want them to see your example.” The man did return with his sons, his wife and a cooler full of water bottles and ice!

Satanism and Abortion

The two driving forces that propel the abortion revolution are pride and sensuality. In his celebrated work Revolution and Counter-Revolution, Professor Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira makes this very clear. Abortion results from the desire to throw off restraint and satiate unruly passions. Rather than use the passions in accordance with God’s plan, abortion is a way to satisfy sensuality without the burden of children. “My body, my choice,” is their mantra. It is similar to Lucifer’s cry in heaven, “I will not serve.” The TFP volunteers witnessed this link when abortion advocates shouted: “hail Satan” nearly everywhere they campaigned.

In Alexandria, Louisiana, a car of angry women drove by shouting, “hail Satan!” Later they came back with nearly illegible signs. “In the course of the discussion, they admitted to being witches. In fact, one of them had the Satanic Temple logo on her phone,” said Rex Teodosio. “She compared unborn babies to grass that can be cut without any consequences.”

Assault in Downtown Houston

The last campaign was in Houston, Texas. The bagpipes and drums echoed off the skyscrapers. A clear division of blue sky and impending storm could be seen through the high-rises. “Defend the unborn,” Evan Olwell told a man and a woman walking by. “They then breathed a big sigh of relief because they thought we might be abortion advocates.” The woman shook his hand and those of the volunteers around him.

“Where are all the women?” shouted a businessman that walked by. “Do you really think there are no women who are pro-life?” responded William Gossett as the two crossed the street. The businessman then angrily shoved him. Coincidentally a police officer just showed up. “It was assault, officer! I saw it. He assaulted him!” said a bum who witnessed the whole incident.

The man was flagged down and had to sit like a schoolboy in trouble for a half hour while the officer talked with him and made a police report.

The Battle Continues

The caravan completed its last campaign on August 1. Looking back on all the cities visited and miles driven, the young men had a lot to reflect upon. In two weeks, they campaigned in twenty-two cities and drove 3,300 miles. They prayed public rosaries of thanksgiving at the Earle Cabell Federal Court building where Roe began and another in front of the Jackson Women’s Health Center in Jackson, Mississippi, where Roe began its demise. The caravan reaffirmed the pro-life movement’s resolve to take the fight to the bitter end. Now is not the time to stop, but rather to take heart and fight until abortion is unthinkable!
