Houston library sued for proselytizing Secular Humanism to minors through a ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’

A formal lawsuit was filed Friday morning at the District Court of Texas, arguing that the Drag Queen Story Hour violates the establishment of religion clause as defined in the Constitution and backed by the United States Supreme Court.

On October 16, 2018, in a similar lawsuit against the Lafayette Public Library, Magistrate Judge Hanna temporarily enjoined the Library from having the Drag Queen Story Hour while the litigation was pending.

Tex Christopher, a community leader, has led to charge to defeat the H.E.R.O. Ordinance which blurred bathroom utilization facilities by gender identification, protested and targeted Target when the city failed, and stopped Robot Sex brothels in Houston recently through his leadership.

“I am fighting to protect families and community decency,” Christopher said. “The Secular Humanists have established a religion in the form of gender and sexual identity and their day in court is finally at hand, and some say it will reverse decades of unconstitutional legislation that has protected their deceit for far too long.”

Through the testimonials of ex-gays, medical professionals, persecuted Christians, and licensed ministers, the complaint states that LGBTQ ideology is inseparably linked to the religion of Secular Humanism, said a press release issued by activist and attorney Chris Sevier.

According to Sevier, the United States Supreme Court recognized that Secular Humanism is a religion for purposes of the Establishment Clause in Torcaso v. Watkins.

The complaint alleges that the Library has failed the prongs of the Lemon Test violated the Establishment Clause by hosting and promoting the Drag Queen Story Time.

Sevier also said the lawsuits are associated with a measure called the Marriage and Constitution Restoration Act, which will be introduced across the country in the 2019 legislative session.

The Houston Chronicle added:

The library director and Mayor Sylvester Turner are named as defendants, accused of being recklessly entangled in “LGBT doctrine.” The lawsuit says the storytelling sessions advertised as appropriate for patrons of all ages at the Freed-Montrose Neighborhood branch should not be funded with taxpayer dollars since the library would not host a “man-woman marriage storytelling hour.”

The group behind the lawsuit identify themselves as “Christ followers,” taxpayers and card-carrying library patrons. One of those bringing the lawsuit is Tex Christopher, who says he homeschooled his children using library books.

Another plaintiff is Chris Sevier, who has filed a number of lawsuits across the country, including one in Houston for the right to marry his laptop. If men can marry men, he has argued, why can’t he marry a computer. The plaintiffs also include an evangelical minister and a woman who says she got into a custody battle with her husband after he left her for a transgender woman.

Sevier is also the activist responsible for the Stop Social Media Censorship Act, a proposal that if passed into law, would see companies like Facebook and Twitter fined $75,000 for censorship of political and religious speech.
