Outward to convert, then inward to destroy

A Pride event in Scotland has banned drag queens because they might offend trans-gender people. Organisers of the show, established to celebrate diversity and tolerance, say the presence of drag queens could make the trans-gendered feel “uncomfortable.”
Drag performances have historically been a feature of almost all Pride events, however Free Pride Scotland, which was set up as an “anti-commercialist” rival of Glasgow’s main Pride event, appears to be the first to take the decision to exclude them.
The organization claims to create “a safe space for all people within the LGBTQIA+ community,” and not to “discriminate.” However, they say, “the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first. After much discussion, the trans and non-binary caucus decided not to have drag acts perform at the event,” wrote Free Pride Scotland on their blog.
And I very much fear that those of us who, like me, subscribe to a "live-and-let-live" philosophy when it comes to gays, will actually be considered limp-wristed moderates when the Reclamation gathers steam.
When people like me, who are willing to tolerate gays, but would sooner approve of an act involving a tub of jello, a three-breasted Martian whore, and Shamu the killer whale, are the moderates, those who pushed the homogamy agenda to such an extreme are going to find very good reason to get on their knees and pray to the very God that they have spent so long vilifying for mercy.
And as that very same God as shown in the past, even His mercy has its limits.
