Vatican World Children’s Day Features Drag Artist for Kids

What? You don’t want some effeminate creep with lipstick entertaining your little ones?

This past weekend, the Vatican put on the first World Children’s Day festival.

The event was first announced by ‘Pope’ Francis on Dec. 8, 2023. It is an initiative of the Vatican Dicastery for Culture and Education under the headship of its prefect, ‘Cardinal’ José Tolentino Calaça de Mendonça.

The main event for this inaugural edition took place at Rome’s Olympic Stadium on Saturday, May 25. An almost 4-hour video has been made available by Vatican News:

Outside the stadium, a ‘Children’s Village’ was set up in the Foro Italico park, where various shows and activities for children were available between 10 am and 2 pm on Saturday.

The official Handbook for World Children’s Day states:

While waiting for the beginning of the event, the organization will host exhibitions, workshops, performances, and stands with attractions.

Stands from associations, movements, and companies supporting the WCD will be present.

(Handbook, page 11)

One of those “performances” announced for the Village was conducted by a certain Carmine De Rosa, advertised in the press kit as a Trasformista — a transformational artist. His name can be found among the official contributors on the Italian version of the World Children Day web site.

In an article apparently breaking the story this morning, Life Site‘s Vatican correspondent writes:

In his capacity as a quick-change artist or a living cartoon, De Rosa appeared as a woman, wearing multiple outfits in drag. He also used suggestive cardboard costumes.

Children sat in a circle around De Rosa as he performed. His demonstration took place at Rome’s Olympic Stadium – where, later in the day, Pope Francis met with thousands of young children from across the world.

Wearing a pink dress with a plunging neck-line, De Rosa commented on the excitement he felt at being invited to take part in the World Children’s Day.

Haynes is referring to a brief video De Rosa posted on his TikTok and Instagram accounts, which we have taken the liberty to put on YouTube:

In case the video gets removed or cannot be played, here are some still shots taken from the clip:

What is there to say? Is there any commentary needed? Do the images and the footage not speak for themselves?

We recall the stern words of our Blessed Lord: “It is impossible that scandals should not come: but woe to him through whom they come. It were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should scandalize one of these little ones” (Lk 17:1-2).

Here we want to draw attention once more to the case of the artwork used on the vestments of World Youth Day in Panama in 2019. The conspicuously-displayed pattern consisted of repeated triangular shapes that are practically identical to what the FBI once publicly identified as a ‘boy lover’ symbol used by pedophiles:

We also made a brief video clip presenting the striking pictorial evidence:

And now, aside from World Youth Days, there will be periodic World Children’s Days as well. What is going on here?!

By the way: Francis announced that the next World Children’s Day sponsored by the Vatican will take place in September of 2026.
