San Diego church vandalized after Pastor Amada Huizar objected Drag Queen story time with kids

Executive Pastor Amado Huizar and his Chula Vista church in San Diego faced the backlash from the LGBTQ community or radical actisit after Huizar objected to the Drag Queen library times with children.

During Washington Watch with Tony Perkins, Pastor Amado explained why this is inappropriate.

“[O]ur message is: it’s not age appropriate,” Pastor Huizar explained. “These are kids aged three to eight. It’s not location appropriate. This is a public venue. And it’s not messenger appropriate. There’s no reason why a drag queen should be reading to kids. And look, this is not a fight against the LGBTQ community. This is not a fight against people who have lived that way. It’s not that at all. It has to do everything with why a drag queen who serves or works in provocative locations and is trying to embellish a [provocative] woman. And it’s not appropriate.”

The result was a community protest and the pastor became the petition drive, so  South Bay Pentecostal was vandalized.

At this point, Chula Vista police have not found a connection between the vandalism and the ongoing controversy.

“Sure enough, at every corner there were phrases, hateful words, and graffiti on the walls…” he told reporters.

But does he regret his stance?

“I come as a father first and foremost. That’s my first calling — before my vocation as a pastor or any vocation… I come as a father to stand up and voice the opposition of the drag queen story hour… [W]e as a faith community have to have a voice… And for [too] much time now the church community has been silenced had decided just to stay away…”

Pastor Amado pointed to a vision, a call to stop thinking about the now and look to a future plan: “What else is this city council going to pass by and [sweep] under the rug without us knowing?”

When the community rallied and called for the cancellation of the event, Mayor Mary Casillas Salas reiterated the city’s stance on keeping the event at the library.

“It is a very simple intent: It’s an intent to read to children to make them feel comfortable about who they are, whoever they are; that’s as simple as it gets,” the mayor said.
