Christian actor and children’s author Kirk Cameron continues to draw big crowds to his Story Hours in US public libraries.
Around 1,000 parents and children turned out to hear him read his own faith-based book for kids called As You Grow at a suburban library in Los Angeles.
The actor targeted 50 public libraries which held regular Drag Queen Story Hours when he requested that they allow him his own Story Hour to read his book that’s based on Biblical values.
All of them rejected or ignored his approach, but some have since agreed to allow his presentations after the Growing Pains star and his publisher Brave Books threatened legal action for discrimination.
Faithwire reports he attracted thousands to earlier readings in New York and Indianapolis.
Kirk Cameron says “all the forces of darkness are no match for mums and dads who are committed to God and to their families.”
Brave Books tweeted: “Nobody can stand in the way of God fearing, loving fathers and mothers!”
Meanwhile, a public library that previously canceled a Pastor Story Hour has also had a change of mind.
The library in Chelmsford, Massachusetts is reinstating the event after receiving legal advice.
Pastor Kendall Lankford started his story hour at libraries hosting Drag Queen Story Hours.
It was stopped following alleged complaints about allowing a local minister to read to children.
Pastor Lankford then sought legal help from the Family Institute.
The Christian Post reports that prompted the library to apologise and recommit to hosting the pastor’s event.
