The San Francisco Gay Men’s Choir faced a wave of backlash this week after presenting itself as tongue-in-cheek humor about fears surrounding children and the “gay agenda.”

“We will convert your children. It will be done little by little. Silently and subtly. And you will hardly notice it. You can prevent them from going out to a nightclub. Warn from San Francisco. Have them wear pleated pants.” Your children will convert. . We will make them tolerant and fair. “
Later the words continue: “We are going to convert your children. Someone has to teach them not to hate. We are coming for them. We are coming for your children. We are coming for them. We are coming for them We are coming for your children. .
