Late last week, the Community Church of Chesterland, Ohio was pelted with Molotov cocktails and a sledgehammer, apparently in response to their decision to host a drag show brunch and story hour.

The Molotov cocktail was a weapon of choice for the Irish Republican Army (IRA), a terrorist organization that split into many factions over the years.

Though the perpetrators caused little damage to the church itself and no one was inside the building at the time, Pastor Jess Peacock has said that the organization is taking extra security precautions in light of the attack.

“That kind of violence is pitiful,” she said to Fox 8. “There are people who say, ‘think of the children, think of the children.’ Well, children go here. We have a preschool here.”

Despite the attack, the event is still going ahead as planned, offering both a drag-themed brunch open to anyone 18 and over, and a drag story hour available to people of all ages.

The event follows a pattern of increasing resistance to drag shows from both right-wing protesters and Republican state legislatures, which have placed legal restrictions on venues that host such events.

Just last month, a drag brunch at a popular local restaurant chain in neighboring West Virginia (Primanti Bros.) was cancelled over threats of violence from hate groups in the region. After the cancellation was announced, MMA fighters from the region volunteered to protect the show and provide security. Unfortunately, the event was not able to happen as the offer came too late for the show’s producers to reverse course.

“I’m not afraid to stand up to people, and I train to fight people all day, every day, so if somebody really wants to attack somebody, let them attack me instead,” Haught, who is the owner of Ohio Valley MMA in Wheeling, West Virginia, said. “Don’t attack the drag queens.”

If the event is rescheduled, Haught has expressed that his offer to protect them is still on the table.

“I volunteer myself and my fighters to stand guard so that people can do exactly what they want to do,” he said.
