Over 50 public libraries spurned a children's book that "celebrates family, faith, and biblical wisdom" even as they are "actively offering 'drag queen' story hours or similar programs for kids," according to the book's publisher, Fox News reported Wednesday.

The libraries have either "outright rejected or not responded to" requests for story-time sessions promoting actor Kirk Cameron's book As You Grow. Those same libraries, however, have "hosted LGBTQ+ story times with drag queens," Cameron's publisher, Brave Books, told Fox.

The libraries' response to Cameron comes as left-wing politicians across the country promote transgenderism and drag queens for children. Democratic Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel, for example, said that drag queens should be in "every school," the Washington Free Beacon reported. The Biden State Department, meanwhile, used taxpayer money to fund a film festival with movies "depicting drag queens, incest, and pedophilia."

Fox News confirmed multiple libraries that turned away Cameron have hosted LGBT programs. Rochambeau Public Library in Providence, R.I., for example, promotes "a regular offering for young people called 'Queer Umbrella.'" A library in Alameda County, Calif., this month hosted an event for those who wish to change "gender markers" on government documents.
