The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –

Last Saturday, July 30th, Blount Pride hosted a Pride Festival at the Jack Greene Park in Maryville, Tennessee that featured a Rainbow and Drag Queen story time for children, followed later by “educational and connection-building activities” led by a local high school teacher.

The city of Maryville arranged for a designated area for protesters with their own parking, away from the festival attendees and a group of Christian Tennesseans showed up to demonstrate.

According to our source, a worship leader and a pastor were in attendance.

Several people were also in attendance that joined in prayer and the singing of worship songs.

Others carried signs, including one that said, “GROOMERS ARE EVIL”.

Our source snapped a photo of their view of the event from their designated protest area.

Following the event, Blount Pride indicated they will soon start planning next year’s event and is seeking donations to make that happen.

    we need to know who in the city government voted to allow this and who stood by and let it happen. We have some RINO’s to hunt.

    Sadly, a little girl sitting right in front of this…display of tastelessness, is busily snapping photos for future viewing. What are her parents thinking? This is grooming at it worst, by PARENTS. Shame on Maryville and those who billed this as family friendly. This is an obvious sexual display.
