Actor Kirk Cameron has been holding storytime hours for children in libraries across America to read to children from his children’s book, which features biblical values.
Many libraries, where officials long have promoted drag queen story hours for children, have not been thrilled by his program, but have allowed it.
One recent event was in Hendersonville, Tennessee, where Cameron was joined by “Duck Dynasty” star Missy Robertson, who also has written a children’s book.
She noted after the event, the apparent opposition from library staff.
She described the “pushback” there, to include staff being “disruptive as she and Cameron attempted to film marketing videos for their books.”
She described how staff members made loud noises and played music from behind the front desk after they had asked for about a minute of quiet to record their videos, WND reported.
“Robertson said, “[The lady at the front desk of the library] said, ‘We’re just trying to look for things to deal with our stress.’ Stre— … what stress? … We’re just standing there with a camera doing a marketing video. That’s when I turned my phone on. I started recording. I was like, ‘This is blatant and ridiculous.'”
Now a report from the Blaze has an updated report on those events.
The report noted the Sumner County Library Board voted 4-3 to remove Allan Morales as library director.

The Blaze reported, “Last month, Cameron, ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Missy Robertson, and women’s sports advocate Riley Gaines joined forces for a children’s story time event at Hendersonville Library, about 20 miles northeast of downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Cameron, Robertson, and professional female surfer Bethany Hamilton have each written children’s books published by patriotic and God-centered publishing company Brave Books, which sponsored the event. Gaines, a former elite college swimmer, attended the event on behalf of Hamilton, who had a scheduling conflict.”
It noted Robertson’s concerns over “employees” of the library “banging books, kicking cabinets, and blaring music…”
Morales, in a statement after the vote, said,” I just have chosen not to say anything. I don’t want to add to all this. I’m hoping now that they have fired me that the community can move on. There’s not much of a point to giving my side. At end of the day, I don’t hate anybody.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.
This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.
This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.
Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.
That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
