Episode 172 | Our Tax Dollars Sponsoring Pridefest

Jun 2, 2023 | Hot Topics

In this episode of our podcast, Pastor Alex has a conversation with Missouri State Representative Jamie Gragg about whether our tax dollars are going to support Springfield’s PRIDEFEST (an LGBTQ event). Representative Gragg is posing the question about why OUR tax dollars have to go towards sponsoring this event that most people in our community do not support. As well, this event is being promoted as “family friendly”, and yet some of the planned entertainment is far from appropriate for kids. Rep Gragg and Pastor Alex are encouraging us to use our influence and speak out against this event.
