The Pearl Parades Perverts

Over the next two months, I will be writing more on this issue. For now, consider this an introduction.


The Pearl Theater in Bonners Ferry is an old building. In fact, it’s an old church building complete with a steeple and a cross on top. Per some recent posts on Facebook, Christian worship ended there a few decades ago.

The Pearl Theater

It has been repurposed as a hub of “The Arts.” In reality, it’s the clubhouse for the homosexual community. The board of the Pearl includes a known satanist and the liberal purveyor of the website

(Note that 9B is the ninth county name starting with the letter “B” in Idaho. Unless you get a custom car licenses plate, the first two digits on the license plate are usually your county designation based on alphabetical order. Thus, 9B is Boundary County and neighboring Bonner County is 7B.)

A few days ago, the Pearl announced that they were going to hold a gay pride rally in mid-June.

In the midst of this they claimed that the event was funded by grants from the State of Idaho and The Union Pacific Railroad. I can’t show you the original posters for the event because they have all been edited to remove the sponsors that were once listed on them.

This is because our local state senator immediately got involved and as a result, The Pearl printed a retraction of State sponsorship.

The Pearl Theater would like to apologize for mistakenly attributing sponsorship of the upcoming Pride event to several agencies that have generously provided grants to The Pearl Theater. It was an honest mistake and a result of misunderstanding the grant requirements regarding how to properly attribute the funding …

Facebook retraction

As soon as we became aware of the mistake, we quickly corrected it and confirmed with the grant agency that the funds could still be used for the projects as planned.

Yeah right. Senator Herndon set you straight and in short order.

Union Pacific’s name also dropped off the list, but I haven’t seen anyone saying why.

Relevant Recent History

North Idaho, as it’s called locally, is one of the fastest-growing regions of the country. It’s also one of the whitest and home to far-right political movements, some that encourage Christians to flee cities for rural areas like this that are pro-gun and libertarian on issues such as home schooling and vaccines.Demographers say the region is experiencing its third wave of mostly white, conservative transplants moving from California: a trend that particularly gained notoriety in the 1990s, when Southern California police officers retired there after the 1991 Rodney King scandal, when Los Angeles officers were videotaped beating a Black man. Today, it’s not uncommon to hear commercial radio stations running ads for abortion therapy groups. Trump 2020 flags flying in yards next to yellow “Don’t Tread on Me” banners are also a mainstay.

Are Paramilitary Extremists Being Normalized? Look To Idaho For Answers

The Rainbow Mafia has set its sights on the town where I live. Unlike the domain of King Newsom, the community is pushing back. Whatever the turnout for the event, the counter protest will be much bigger.

Just to explain how different things are here in Idaho, let’s go back a few years to BLM supporters protesting in Idaho.

When Black Lives Matter protests broke out across the country after the police killing of George Floyd this summer, Schroeder watched as small groups of high school and college-aged protesters in Coeur d’Alene were met with as many as 400 civilians, mostly white men, purporting to be their “protectors.”

Brandishing assault rifles, the men proclaimed they were there to safeguard local businesses and protesters from a rumored antifa incursion. While the mayor and City Council described their armed presence as potentially “reassuring,” some protesters said the true goal was intimidation.

Yep, at BLM protests in Idaho, the guys that showed up to protect businesses far outnumbered the protesters. Oh, and open carrying of firearms is legal so all these guys were armed to the teeth. As a result, the BLM protests died out quickly and no businesses were harmed by otherwise undeterred criminals.

Here’s another story from 2020.

Monday was the first night that people carrying rifles and wearing tactical gear began appearing on the streets of Sherman Avenue, an apparent response to debunked rumors that out-of-town agitators were plotting property damage in the city by the lake. Instead, protests in Coeur d’Alene have remained largely peaceful, and those who have taken to the streets have expressed solidarity with those armed.

That’s not the case 50 miles to the north in Sandpoint, according to Mayor Shelby Rognstad.

“None of the young protesters I spoke with felt any safer in the presence of these armed vigilantes,” Rognstad wrote in a lengthy Facebook post Wednesday evening. “Rather, they felt scared, intimidated and in some cases harassed. None of the downtown business owners I have since spoken to felt any safer from the militant presence.”

Coincidentally, these protests and counter-protests happened at the time my wife and I were making our initial scouting trip of Idaho in June 2020 as part of our plan to leave California. Hearing that the number of people providing an armed response was greater than the BLM protesters is one reason that we chose to move to Idaho.

I fully expect a similar type of overwhelming pushback for the event at the Pearl. I know that plans are underway to execute a response and that these efforts will be replicated in various parts of the community.

Back to the Current Situation

Meanwhile, the Rainbow Mafia is running a campaign on Facebook to try and normalize homosexual behavior. As one would expect, this is thinly veiled attack on Christians and others that believe in God. After denouncing that God exists or the Bible is His Word, they then try to quote verses about loving your neighbor. They use these tactics to try to cow people into backing down. Sadly, this works on many people that think God is Love but don’t know what that means.

Eventually, it always comes down to man being the measure of all things, which logically denies that His revealed Word is the final authority. They want sin normalized or at least graded on the curve—as they define it—so they can measure up.

The syllogism would be something like this:

God is Love, Ellen loves Eve, therefore, Ellen’s love is what God commanded. Thus, Elen’s sin is virtuous.

To which I would add, if sin is virtuous, then why did Jesus have to die?

The error in the logic is great, but then this is an emotional argument intended to justify and rationalize, not one intended to bear-up under questioning. They deny God exists—although the Bible says they are liars because they know he does. They just use the mention of God as cover for the strawman they substitute for him in their major premise. They are self-deceived and dead in their trespasses and sin.

When I next write on the subject, I plan to look at some posts put up in support of the event and the lifestyle it embraces.
