The picture below is from the Facebook page of the downtown Bloomington business that holds Drag Queen story hour for kids.
Can anybody honestly say this is not an attempt to sexualize children? Note the names of books they are reading to the kids. There aren’t other life lessons as told in books the kids would learn something useful from?
Guess who supports drag queen readings at the Bloomington Public Library?

Jamie: Are there no limits to tolerance and acceptance? Are you saying “Sit Down and Shut Up”?
Do you need examples from history where people were taught tolerance and it didn’t end well?

Jamie must have missed the part about this conference teaching how to sneak this past parents.
The paper is reporting the City is changing the name of the Pepsi Ice Center to Bloomington Ice Center. https://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/bloomington-to-rename-ice-center-rink-will-honor-olson/article_ba710e12-8d2f-56e0-b1aa-742cc9ce4994.html#tracking-source=home-top-story
The story contains this paragraph:
Pepsi didn’t renew the naming rights in 2016 – more than 3 years ago. The City kept giving them free advertising anyway. The Pantagraph can’t figure out why the name is finally being changed?
The real question is why did it take so long? Why did it take even longer to end the pension spiking fleece? Maybe a book needs written: Government Incompetence

I guess this less than inclusive bigot doesn’t know Chick-fil-A was named THE BEST fast food chain in America by Business Insider: https://www.businessinsider.com/the-best-fast-food-chains-in-america-2016-5
Maybe Normal had them as a vendor because the food is good.
There is ALWAYS a line at the drive-through in Normal!
Maybe Mr. Robb just doesn’t approve of a business that operates by biblical principles.
Very inclusive! Obviously only people who think the same way can be included in inclusive. More proof Not In Our Town is a joke.
