None Dare Call It Pedophilia — Yet!
Daily Wire | LFF Commentary | January 2019

Image screen-capture - DaliyWire. We apologize for any offensiveness portrayed by the image.

On Monday, 10-year-old Canadian boy Nemis Quinn Mélançon-Golden was featured in a troubling Huck Magazine piece highlighting the life of a so-called "child drag queen."

Young Nemis, whose drag name is "Queen Lactacia," was shot by photographer Jonathan Frederick Turton for the spread. In one of the shots that did not make the magazine, Nemis, in full drag makeup and a black dress, is posing for a photo with the Season 7 winner of "RuPaul's Drag Race," Violet Chachki. In the shocking photo, Violet is wearing nothing but a pair of heels and a small piece of fabric covering his genitals. 

How can we be shocked by this disturbing scenario when right here in Louisiana, we have parents lining up to bring their three to six-year-olds to Drag Queen Story Hour. There is no question that drag has a sexual component. Clearly, children should not be exposed to such inappropriate and confusing messages. We can only hope that parents everywhere wake up and realize this before it's too late. Team LFF will not stop speaking truth to the deception that this is simply a way to teach kids inclusion and acceptance.

 

Wanted! Louisiana's Longest Married Couple
LFF Commentary | January 2019

Louisiana Family Forum (LFF) is looking for Louisiana's 'Longest Married Couple.' "We want to tell your story and encourage the next generation that they can remain happily married for life. We are honored to share these examples of lasting love," commented LFF President Gene Mills. "LFF's message is simple–marriage can last a lifetime!"

The Top Ten Longest Married Couples will also be honored by receiving official recognition and will be entered in the LFF "Marriage Hall of Fame."
    
It's no secret that LFF is committed to building a culture of strong marriages! Research clearly demonstrates that married adults live longer lives, have better health, and experience greater personal happiness. Likewise, children who are raised by a married mother and father have longer life expectancies, experience fewer addictions, and teen pregnancies, and are more likely to graduate college.

For the past three years, LFF celebrated Lawrence and Varrie Player of Benton as Louisiana's Longest Married couple. Sadly, both Mr. and Mrs. Player passed away in 2018. LFF honors their memory and their legacy of love and commitment during their 83 years of marriage.

Entries must be submitted before February 5, 2019, by sending family contact information, couple's name, and anniversary date to kristie@lafamilyforum.org. For more information, please call LFF at 225-344-8533.

Five Global Trends — "Good News!"
Independent Institute | January 2019

When we compare the world to our visions of the ideal, it's a pretty messed-up place. War. Famine. Poverty. Cruelty. How is it that so many who bear the image of God do such horrible things to others who also bear the image of God?

But things used to be worse, and now they are getting better. Much better, by a lot of margins. Thomas Hobbes wrote that in the state of nature life is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short. But things have changed a lot in the last three centuries or so, and the lives we live today are connected, rich, clean, peaceful, and long.

Here are just five trends that make me optimistic:

  1. Solitary No More: Literacy is Connection
  2. Poor No More: The World Is Getting Richer
  3. Nasty No More: The World is Getting Cleaner
  4. Brutish No More: The World is Less Violent
  5. Short No More: There Are More People Living a Lot Longer
