Religious Leaders In Pennslyvania Object To 'Drag Queen Bingo' Fundraisers
CBS NEWS REPORTS:
Religious leaders in Westmoreland County (Pennslyvania) are expressing concerns over fundraisers in the community.
The one catching their attention: drag queen bingos at volunteer fire departments.
A group of seven Christian churches in the Mount Pleasant Township area called "Christians Uniting" issued a letter to about 14 volunteer fire departments in their congregation area on March 20.
It calls into question the use of drag queen bingos as fundraisers.
"These pictures depicted individuals in a very unpleasant way," said Pastor Mark Werner. "Not in the way that God created us to live."
The letter says:
"This event encourages the touch, fondling and groping of patrons dressed in drag."
They go on to state that this could lead to lawsuits in the "Me Too"-era.
