Protect Childhood Innocence resolution passed by Ottawa County


Last night, in a bold move, the Ottawa County Board of Commissioners, by a vote of 9-2, passed the Resolution to Protect Childhood Innocence (pictured). It's purpose is to take a stand against the ever-increasing and alarming exposure of children to inappropriate "sexualized behaviors."


Among the 'whereas planks' in the resolution was one directed at county resources and staff: "No county staff or resources shall be allocated to activities, programs, events, content, or institutions which support, normalize, or encourage the sexualization of children and youth."


This plank was influenced by OC health dept. staff attending a PRIDE bacchanalia in Grand Haven (and one in Holland).


The resolution closes by encouraging communities to "promote the good and the honorable to children."


It's sooooo ironic to witness a unit of government displaying more moral backbone than, say, a church. Make that "church." TY, Ottawa 9!

Now all we need are some actual examples of county resources being utilized to sexualize our children--then we'll actually see the potential benefits this courageous resolution!

FYI to the ERG haters & their ILLk:

We the (diversity friendly) members of Emmanuel Episcopal Church do not “sexualize”[sic/Sick] children in our healthy faith community, nor do we allow homophobia to poison our loving family of believer.

As you may know (esp. since some of your grievance-obsessed supporters were EEC members till the early 2000’s, when they bolted to form their own intolerant congregation..), we have long supported LGBTQ right; esp. during the June Pride Month.

We’re just hoping that it wasn’t one of your less-than-law-abiding number who has twice stolen our

pride flag from its place on our property…

BTW—That space is now protected via electronic surveillanc.
