The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed suit against the LaFayette Public Library in Louisiana after officials made the decision to prohibit Drag Queen Story Time events, since the library had previously been sued by two other groups for making preparations to present an event on the grounds.
“The defendant’s requirement that individuals seeking to use library space sign a form disavowing affiliation with Drag Queen Story Time as a precondition for use of public space and also under penalty of potential legal liability violates the First Amendment,” the lawsuit declares.
Reports claim that the LaFayette Public Library had scheduled a “Drag Queen Story Time” event to take place in October, but was quickly sued by members of the groups Warriors for Christ and Special Forces of Liberty. The lawsuit asserts that two of the plaintiffs, who are a part of Special Forces of Liberty, classify themselves as polygamists.
The legal challenge voiced criticism in regards to a “government endorsed effort to brainwash and indoctrinate minors to religious (secular humanist) worldviews on sex, faith, truth, gender, morality, and marriage in a manner that excessively entangles the government with the religion of postmodern-western-individualistic-moral relativism.”
“The plaintiffs have no objection to the Drag Queen Story [Time] being held on private property. However, the plaintiffs object to the public library’s endorsement of Drag Queen Story [Time] because the public library is a government actor that is endorsing non-secular activity in an manner that is excessively entangling the government with the religion of secular humanism in a manner that relegates non-observers of the religion of secular humanism to second class citizens,” the complaint read.
