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?

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?

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.VictorFrom: Raychel To: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Monday, May 09, 2016 7:57 AM Subject: Re: HelpI had an "experience" in which I got clean from drugs and alcohol.

Helena Library Conclusion

On October 21 we attended the Lewis and Clark Library board meeting to witness the decision of the board on The Joy of Gay Sex. To no one’s surprise, the board unanimously approved the review committee’s and director’s decision to retain this vile book in the library’s active collection.

一個必要的警告

English - Chinese 嗨大家! 我記起我可能在幾年前或更多年前做過的一個夢 (我​​不敢把它當作來自主以外的任何什麼),在這個夢裡,我被指示當當局來暴政時,我被指示服從當局。是的,它會是這樣的。這看起來非常不公平,甚至是惡魔般的。 許多威廉·雷蒙德、邁克·亞當斯和亞歷克斯·瓊斯的人一點也不會喜歡它。他們的反應和立場是反擊,抵制這一「不公」的大招。凡反抗的,必死於刀劍之下。 注意,上面提到的人和許多像他們一樣的人都呼籲正義、法律和秩序;是的,他們要求許多好的和道德的東西,但他們缺少對罪的悔改和對上帝的信心。這就是問題所在。 雷蒙德、亞當斯、瓊斯和許多其他人也想兩者兼得。他們不能兩全其美。 現在落在我們國家身上的一切都是因為到處都是罪惡和不信、罪孽和暴力。我們甚至以祂的名義把上帝趕出去 (罪上加罪),現在祂已經受夠了我們的罪孽、自以為是、固執、傲慢、自負和叛逆。祂再不眨眼了。我們作為國家享有的自由,特別是在西方,也許尤其是在北美,已經成為歷史。 這是我所看到的,我帶著緊迫感說這話:我看到我們的情況與巴比倫攻打以色列時的情況有明顯的平行或相似之處,當尼布甲尼撒率領他的大軍來時,而耶利米呼籲人民服從尼布甲尼撒。如果這些權力奪走了我們的一切,包括我們的生命,我們絕不能反抗。我們必須承認我們的主耶穌基督和上帝的王國至高無上。上帝完全掌控。祂的審判現在就在這裡,祂正在利用「祂的僕人尼布甲尼撒」來審判我們的國家。 沒有人,無論高低、貧富,應受審判的人都會逃脫得了,而任何對上帝有信仰和忠誠並應得正義的人都不會被剝奪。上帝對那些仰望並愛慕祂的人是公正和憐憫的。 「審判全地的主豈不做公平的事嗎?」(創世記 18:25) 那些抗拒的人將無法承受審判。審判之杖只會更加堅硬,無法逃脫。上帝已經把它放在這個世界的權力的心中,以帶來這個巨大的糾正。如果我們抵抗,耶利米宣稱,我們會死,但如果我們服從,我們的生命將倖免於難。理所當然,耶利米因其立場和上帝通過他向猶大傳達的信息而被稱為他的國家和上帝的叛徒。 那為什麼收割之地?為什麼是我們的「通向世界之門」以及我們投入的所有工作和金錢,如果一切都會下沉,你可能會問?這是另一個奇妙的平行——我們的處境與當時巴比倫來征服猶太人並摧毀他們的國家,甚至是他們光榮的聖殿之間。你會記得耶利米被指示購買一塊土地。在即將被外邦人佔領期間對他的這一指示是上帝應許猶太人將返回並再次生活在他們的土地上的象徵。我相信同樣的。上帝給了我們收割之地和建築物,以便在不久的將來為我們和其他人制定一個計劃 (閱讀耶利米書第三十二章)。 有一段時間,它可能看起來相反,就像一切都丟失了。如果當局來奪走我們所有的一切,甚至是我們的孩子和生命 (不是說他們會——我不知道具體情況),我們必須認識到每一個細節都是在天上的完美監督下進行的。我們不要對這些事情感到懼怕、憤怒或怨恨。 是的,從表面上看,這些行為和事件似乎完全不公平、不公正——確實是暴虐的。我們遇到的那些「反對」我們從事這項工作的人甚至可能會顯得憤世嫉俗,並為他們對我們的權力感到自豪,但我們絕不能抗拒。我們必須讓它發生,並感謝上帝,祂的審判是公正的。記住,無論我們得到什麼,都只是因為我們需要或應得的,或兩者兼而有之。 讓他們在沒有通知、上訴權或其它任何事情的情況下用鎖鏈把我們帶走。服從,服從,服從,把他們當作上帝的使者在做他們的工作,因為它就是這樣;他們是審判的使者,不會徒勞地揮舞劍。如果我們相信並順服,上帝就會憐憫我們。祂會感動人心,並按照祂的旨意使他們翻轉。祂是萬靈之父。知道這...
