Will MacBride’s Letter to the Editor with All Comments


Double Standard?
By Will MacBride, 427 W. Lawrence – 08/24/08

In response to the letter about the inclusion of the book The Joy of Gay Sex in the Lewis & Clark Library’s book selection, I have only this to ask: would Mr. Cohen be writing a letter to the editor if the book was the Joy of Heterosexual Sex? Would he be up in arms if it depicted sex between a man and a woman, rather than two men? I say, if a book about gay sex is taken out of the library, why not take all books of a sexual topic out of the library, regardless of sexual orientation. If this is really about protecting a child from seeing a book about sex, and not about the fact that it was a gay sex book, than I’m sure he wouldn’t object.

Will, folks like Mr. Cohen have tried having books about heterosexual sex removed from Helena library shelves in the past. One woman in particular was notorious for repeatedly checking out books she thought were indecent, thus preventing any one, child or adult, from seeing them. I recall that community reaction to her crusade consisted mostly of suggestions that she get her mind off sex and find a productive hobby.

Such headline-seeking moralists look for targets of opportunity; it might be Gay sex today and straight sex tomorrow — whatever they think will get them the biggest play in the press.

Well put. As a parent I think it is my job to protect my kids from thing that are not appropriate for there age or developmental stage. This includes all situations not just what they have access to at the library.

I would ask for the removal of such a book. If there is a book with similar graphic depictions of a man and woman in various sexual poses, I make it known that it has no place on a public library bookshelf. There is no double standard, Mr. MacBride.

Does that mean that sex is unclean or something of which to be ashamed? Not at all. ‘Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge’ (Hebrews 13:4 MKJV). Pornography defiles a pure and good gift from God, and it has no place in our public institutions. As for homosexuality, it is a form of fornication that is never honorable, as it is impossible for two men to be married in the sight of God:

"You shall not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination to God" (Leviticus 18:22 MKJV).

From: Bryan To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, April 29, 2016 9:41 PM hey i read your script on todd white.  i dont glorify man or worship man, but i have heard his witnessing to people on the streets.   i think you dont endorse him not because of what he says but what he looks like.  putting this aside, he does talk about repentance, but Jesus did not talk about repentance or the cross he came across. i think what is fueling your passion to label this guy is your jealous because you are not out sharing your faith and doing what he is doing.  and maybe like me, you probably studied theology, think you know something, but somehow it does not translate to going beyond the church walls and reaching people on the streets- like Jesus.  i have my excuses, and i have been praying for a while for God to open me up somehow to do what i know we are suppossed to do, what i once have done so many times in my life- share Jesus with the world.  but here is a guy doing just that and you blog about him, i wonder what that says about you.   be part of the solution and not part of the problem. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Bryan Sent: Tuesday, May 10, 2016 6:49 AM Subject: Judging after Appearance Bryan, you’re assuming things that aren’t true, which has led you into speculation and wrong conclusions.  We addressed the false gospel of Todd White because people came to us asking about him and the Lord gave us to answer them, and to publish the answers for everyone t...
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...
