On Friday, March 24th, a small group of prayer warriors gathered outside Cafecito Bonito on Debarr Road in Anchorage, AK to hold a prayer vigil while a drag queen show for all ages took place. This small group of individuals was outnumbered by a few dozen activists known as The Queen’s Guard (a militant LGBTQ group) that stood in front of the entrance of the venue.
Those who showed up to pray gathered peacefully to protest the “all ages” show. They held signs clearly stating their reason for being present — “STOP child abuse,” “STOP child grooming” and “STOP dragging the children down.”
Despite several attempts by the drag queen activists to challenge the prayer vigil attendees with their loud music, finger gestures and screams of false accusations, their hate-filled attempts fell silent when the Resistance members began praying.
“On a Friday night during Lent, while many Catholics are inside church buildings praying the Stations of the Cross, we are out here in the cold, with Christ on the Via Dolorosa for the sake of God’s children, being mocked and cursed by men in women’s clothing,” said one prayer vigil attendee.
As many as 11 participants ranging in age from 16 to 67 — both Catholics and non-Catholics — found solidarity in prayer concerning such grooming tactics.
“Jesus had 11 disciples who remained with him after Judas ran off to betray Him,” said another prayer vigil attendee. “While we are small in number, King David was small in stature when he took on the giant, Goliath,” added Dcn. Dez Martinez.
The organizer of Church Militant Resistance-Alaska (CMR-A) said the assault on the family and children is rampant and needs to be fought in public at the local level.
“These shows are occurring throughout the country as these misogynistic individuals say they are trying to ‘normalize’ their behavior, but what they are doing is grooming children by exposing them to behavior that is detrimental to a child’s natural development,” explained a member of CMR-A. “This is child abuse — period.”
The prayer vigil attendees stood their ground praying before, during and after the event.
When asked why he attended this event, Dcn. Martinez stated, “Jesus died for us in public so we must live for Him in public, not just in the privacy of our homes and church buildings. We are here for God’s children, old and young, because Jesus tells us clearly in Matthew 18:6 that anyone who causes a little one to sin deserves the millstone award.”
