JAMESTOWN TOWNSHIP, Michigan (LifeSiteNews) – Voters in a Michigan township were fed-up with the LGBT propaganda pushed in their local library, so after getting nowhere in convincing the library to remove inappropriate books, they defunded it.
Jamestown Township voters rejected a property tax renewal for the Patmos Library. Since 84 percent of the funds for its operations comes from taxation this means that the library will likely run out money in 2023, according to Bridge Michigan. Locals objected to graphic pro-LGBT and transgender books being on display, including one which has illustrated sex acts in its pages.
The local news site reported:
As many as 50 people attended several library board meetings this spring, meetings that typically draw only a handful of residents. At those meetings, residents demanded the book be pulled from the shelves. The library board moved the book behind the counter, where children couldn’t happen upon it by accident.
Complaints were filed about several other books, including “Spinning,” a graphic novel about a teen girl and her attraction to other girls, and “Kiss Number 8,” a graphic novel with similar themes. Those books remain on the shelves of the young adult (high-school age) graphic novels section.
There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.
Consider these 3 questions:
- Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5?
- Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
- Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active?
A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.
In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity.
We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!
The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

This nut could end up being your child’s teacher and you wouldn’t even find out the craziness they’re teaching until your kid tells you about it. If you aren’t disturbed after watching this, you’re a lunatic. School choice is the civil rights issue of our generation. pic.twitter.com/y1V3Rotx9k— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) August 17, 2021
Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.
Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes.
Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.
Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting:
That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.
The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.
Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.
Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.
Two consecutive library directors resigned after facing pushback for putting inappropriate materials on the shelves.
Voters explained their opposition.
“We don’t need to see those books out front,” Sarah Johnson told Bridge Michigan. “We’re all for the library. I use it. We want to make a statement that we want some say in the books (chosen to be in the collection).”
An organizer with the Jamestown Conservatives group, which organized opposition, accused the library of trying to groom children. “They are trying to groom our children to believe that it’s OK to have these sinful desires,” Amanda Ensing said. “It’s not a political issue, it’s a Biblical issue.”
But the library board president Larry Walton made statements indicating he will dig his heels in over the issue of LGBT books — which the library maintains amounts to 90 out of 67,000.
For those 90 books, Walton, it seems, will let the library close.
“A wake-up call to what? To take LGBTQ books off the shelf and then they will give us money? What do you call that? Ransom?” he said, according to Bridge Michigan. “We stand behind the fact that our community is made up of a very diverse group of individuals, and we as a library cater to the diversity of our community,” he said.
A “new business item” for the upcoming August 8 library board meeting includes “library future operations.”
