Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently cracked down on the Hyatt Hotel that hosted a drag queen event at which young children were present, revoking the woke hotel’s liquor license as punishment. Given how much such places rely on the bar and cocktail/wine menu to keep the restaurant profitable and boost margins for the facility, that counterstrike will hopefully be enough to get other venues to shy away from hosting similar events in the future.
Reverend Franklin Graham cheered Governor DeSantis’ strike back against the venue in a post on his Facebook page, saying:
Governor Ron DeSantis doesn’t mess around. He’s revoking the liquor license of a major Miami hotel because they hosted a drag queen show with children present, even after being warned. The Governor’s office stated “Sexually explicit content is not appropriate to display to children and doing so violates Florida law. Governor DeSantis stands up for the innocence of children in the classroom and throughout Florida.” It’s so refreshing to see a leader who is willing to stand up for what is right! May God bless and help him as he leads this state.
DeSantis press secretary Bryan Griffin explained the decision to revoke the liquor license in a statement, saying, “Sexually explicit content is not appropriate to display to children and doing so violates Florida law. Governor DeSantis stands up for the innocence of children in the classroom and throughout Florida.”
Further, the 16-page complaint filed by the state noted that Hyatt “promoted the Show using targeted, Christmas-themed promotional materials that did not provide notice as to the sexually explicit nature of the Show’s performances or other content.”
Additionally, the complaint argued that “Rather than call attention to the Show’s sexually explicit content or acknowledge that it might not be appropriate for children, Respondent’s promotional materials unequivocally stated ‘[a]ll ages welcome.‘”
Reverend Graham also cheered GOP AGs in 20 states for ensuring that Walgreens will no longer be selling abortion pills in their states, saying:
I’m thankful that Walgreens will not be selling the chemical abortion pill mifepristone in 20 states—thanks to the demands of pro-life Attorneys General in those states. And I appreciate all of the local pharmacies in cities and towns across America that are doing the same. They support a culture of life, not death. Boone Drug in my hometown is owned and operated by Christians who won’t be dispensing the abortion pill either. Our friend and Boone Drug President Corey Furman said, “I believe that life begins when a unique chromosomal pair has that first cellular division. At that point you have a unique set of chromosomes, and you are actively moving about…At that point you’re alive, and at that point you are protected by the laws of the United States of America. The very first document our Founding Fathers signed established us as a nation and declares that we all have unalienable rights, and among these rights are life—the very first one listed—liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Amen.
Pray with me that God will move major pharmacy chains like Albertsons, Costco, Kroger, and Walmart to say no to this drug despite pressure and bullying from Democrats in the Senate.
