Mark Colton’s Letter to the Editor with All Comments


Remove the Book
By Mark Colton, 550 Tubbie Road – 08/25/08

Kudos to Mr. Paul Cohen for challenging the Helena Lewis and Clark Library board members decision to keep the book “The Joy of Gay Sex” smut available to all Library card holders regardless of age. “The Joy of Gay Sex” is particularly objectionable, showing in vivid detail nearly every conceivable way of engaging in homosexual sex.

The language used in the book is schoolyard four-letter words for what is basically a “how-to manual” for young homosexuals.

Libraries should be the family-friendliest places one can find, and the library board should take steps to protect the safety of Helena’s children and peace of mind for the city parents.

This is not about censorship but selection. No library can stock every book in print, which means space occupied by a book devoted to gay porn cannot be occupied by a book with some redeeming literary value. The library mill levy was passed for this?

Concerned parents should attend the public board meeting on Aug. 25 at 5 p.m. at the small meeting room in the library and voice your concerns.

Those who want this book off the library shelves are pretending, for the sake of generating more publicity, that pubescent children (the only age that would have interest in such a book) don’t already have knowledge about various kinds of sex, including gay sex. I knew about it, my friends all knew about it and, let’s face it, these self-promoting book-banning moralists all knew about it. Did having such knowledge turn them gay?

It’s obvious that their effort to take this book off the shelves is all about generating publicity, money and political influence for themselves. How dreary and tiresome they are, and how curious is their preoccupation with other peoples’ sex lives.

Here’s an idea for those who don’t care for the book: Don’t look at it!

Children steal, too, which does not mean we teach them how. And if we were preoccupied with other people’s sex lives, we wouldn’t be asking to remove their reports and concepts from public shelves, would we? And let this unthinking accuser prove we do it for publicity, money, or politics.

What about the book "The Joy of Heterosexual Sex" or the book about "The Joy of Group Sex"? Give room for one, you better find room for all. What a great concept, learn about sex acts from the library, not from your mom or dad or a counselor or a minister, just check out a book on how to have sex and hope you checked out the right book for what you think you are, homo or hetero or groupo. Hey can I find Larry Flint or Hugh Heffner on any of the shelves in the public library?

Do Christians Sin?
Are believers in Christ bound to sin for the rest of their lives, as some believe, or does He deliver us from sin and sinning by giving us a new Nature? The Scriptures may appear to say both, but what are they actually saying? Praise God, we know the truth of the matter, and the truth not only gives hope, but makes free when believed.
Confusion About Divorce and Adultery
From: Rob Sent: July 20, 2021 4:41 PM To: Victor Hafichuk Subject: Divorce and Adultery I am very concerned avout your teaching of divorce. Now, Paul said that not he but God commands that thise who are married - not those who are married in the Lord - do not divorce, but if they do, they are to remain unmarried. Paul addressed first the singletons and widows, then he addressed the married, but says his instruction is a command of God's, then he says, "Now to the REST (neither married nor unmarried) I say..." and he discusses if a man or woman has an unbelieving boyfriend or girlfriend with whom the person is in a serious emotional or sexual relationship with (fornication) in which children may be involved. The third group is being carefully catered to. These verses are for the church in Corinth, a godless city. People there would have had sexual partners and relationships as is the case today. Imagine that today I am a young woman living together with my boyfriend and am pregnant. I become a believer. Now I suddenly have a problem on my hands that I did not habe before. Paul does not command but gives an instruction that if my unbelieving boyfriend consents to live with me, we may live together (he may mean this formalizes the union), but if he doesn't (for example my being a Christian freaks him out and my behavior has changed a lot), then I am not bound to him. The fact that we have eother had sex or have had children does not bind us together. But this i...
Carelessness Towards God
From: Raychel To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, May 01, 2016 9:30 AM Subject: Help  I've committed the unpardonable sin and have been given over to my own depraved mind. Calamity has struck and I know there isn't much time left for me. What kind of Hell am I looking forward to? As you hold a different doctrine that I have never heard before.  -Raychel  From: Victor Hafichuk To: Raychel Cc: Paul Cohen Sent: Sunday, May 08, 2016 4:48 PM Subject: Re: Help Raychel, let’s begin with what sin you think you’ve committed and how you define the unpardonable sin. There’s much controversy as to what the unpardonable sin is. Also tell us what the “calamity” is.  We’ll take it from there. Make no foolish and unlearned assumptions – the consequences of those constitute hell by themselves. And remember, though God can be a God of wrath and judgment, He is also a just and merciful God, One Who knows and shows mercy as He sees fit. Yes, He’s no fool and will not be mocked; we all reap what we sow, but let’s define precisely what’s going on and not jump to unwarranted conclusions. Victor From: Raychel To: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Monday, May 09, 2016 7:57 AM Subject: Re: Help I had an "experience" in which I got clean from drugs and alcohol. I was in the church for two years reading the bible praying and going out witnessing. I thought I was a Christian but I started feeling dark deep down inside and I discovered I had never actually accepted Christ as my...
