Pastors and Christian activists known for protesting Planned Parenthood and Drag Queen Story Hour events were ridiculed and mocked at a fundraiser for the abortion giant.
An activist group organized on Facebook called Spokane United Against Religious Extremism & The Church at Planned Parenthood — in reference to a church that gathers weekly for worship outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Spokane, Washington, called The Church at Planned Parenthood — organized the Oct. 30 Halloween themed drag show fundraiser that included an auction featuring giant cardboard cutouts of area Christians known to protest Drag Queen Story Hour events.
The event also took aim at local pastors who are frequently seen praying outside Planned Parenthood abortion facilities, according to Anna Bohach, founder of 500 Mom Strong, a nonprofit organization comprised of mothers who are “say[ing] no to the misogyny of Drag Queen Story Hour and the transgender movement that is taking over our culture,” the group’s Facebook page states.
Searching the social media pages of the drag performers, Bohach said she saw photos and video footage taken at the event that featured an auction in which the Christian leaders were mocked as part of a “slave-style” auction.
To cheers and laughs from the crowd, the drag queens were subsequently followed by three dancers holding large photos and cutouts of three Christians who’ve been protesting Drag Queen Story Hour events in the community, including pastor Ken Peters, pastor Afshin Yaghtin, and Bohach herself.
“It echoed the uproarious laughter of audiences that laughed and mocked blacks and women in the minstrel shows of not that long ago,” she noted in a blog post last week.
Other performers then held up the cutouts of six other local Christians, including those affiliated with The Church at Planned Parenthood, lined up on a stage resembling a slave auction, she said.
