COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. — REAL News Michiana has learned a former teacher turned politician is planning an event to support a local library’s efforts to push sex and satanism onto kids through “Pride” month events and displays. The Peabody Public Library came under fire following a REAL News Michiana story outlining the displays and events targeting kids earlier this month.
“Join us tomorrow, June, 30, at Peabody Public Library!” The post written by Nathan Gotsch on the Whitley County Democrats Facebook page reads. “When I heard about the library drama, I called their director to see if I could help. With his blessing, I am helping to organize ‘Prou Peabody Patrons for Pride,’ which is happening between noon and 1PM this Friday… our goal is to have Peabody library card holders come and check out every single book in the two Pride displays.”
Gotsch is a former teacher at Concordia Lutheran High School in Fort Wayne who ran for Congress last year and failed miserably.
PEABODY SEX EXHIBITS
Earlier this month, RNM published a story uncovering the Pride exhibits for kids along with events including a “Teen Pride Party.”
Columbia City is a small, rural town in conservative Whitley County with a population of less than 10,000 people.
Books being presented to children include:
The Pride Guide — A guide to sexual and social health for LGBTQ youth
The LGBTQ Survival Guide for teens magazine
Camp Quiltbag — Story about an LGBTQ summer camp with a 12-year-old lesbian and 13-year-old child who goes by e/em/eir pronouns.
LGBTQ Families — A children’s book describing the virtues of “non-traditional” families.
The Times I knew I was Gay — A children’s book that gives “clues” to knowing you’re actually gay.
Pretty Boys — A story about men wearing makeup.
Growing Up Trans — Shares stories, essays, art and poetry created by trans youth aged 11 to 18.
I Have Something to Tell You — A book for kids written by Chasten Buttigieg (husband of US Secretary of Transportation and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg) describing his “coming out.”
Bloom — A story for kids about two men falling in love.
The library also set out pamphlets and displays describing radical gender theory and promoting Satanism.
Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity — This display essentially tells children how they can “transition” into a new gender.
Genderbread Person — This display is meant for very young children to describe radical gender theory using a well known character, the Gingerbread man.
Lil Nas X promotional poster — Lil Nas X is a musician who is well known for promoting satanism. His most famous music video involves him stripping for and appearing to have sexual relations with the Devil.
The library also has large displays throughout the library designed for children to view. It also has a calendar for sexual events planned for children which you can see below.
Last week, the Whitley County Board of Commissioners sent out a scathing letter regarding the exhibits and events. Signed by all three board members, the letter expresses the board’s disgust with the exhibit and Pride events designed for children while encouraging residents to reach out to library officials to express their concerns.
The letter also appears to make reference to a local summer camp that was also featured in a story that RNM broke. Camp Whitley has been pushing the LGBTQ agenda and radical gender theory onto children by hiring transgender camp counselors and forcing kids to choose their preferred pronouns.
“The Whitley County Board of Commissioners support the right for everyone to be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.” The June 22nd letter from the Board of Commissioners states. “We do not support the promotion of sexuality being displayed at Peabody Public Library and feel it’s the responsibility of parents to provide their children with sexual education, not the library, summer camps or other public entities. We do not support event promoting sexuality that target children such as Teen Pride Party night. We believe the library should serve as an educational resource but should refrain from teaching or endorsing sexuality. We encourage residents to contact the Peabody Library Board of Trustees to express their concerns.”
