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).

Obnoxious Liar Believes Himself Holy
From: Lee To: Victor Hafichuk and Paul Cohen Sent: Sunday, January 10, 2016 5:13 PM Subject: The Path of Truth - feedback Dear Mr Hafichuk/Cohen, My name is Lee. I am a son of God, born of the Holy Spirit. (I might have called myself a 'Christian' but that would have very little meaning since there seem to be a lot of them around.) Today I came across your website for the first time, and found it interesting. I have now read/scanned a large number of your articles. I wanted to share a few thoughts, and let me say straight off that I do not want or need a reply. Firstly, it must be said that we seem to have much in common. Like you, I denounce 'church religion', pagan festivals, Sunday Christianity, 'once saved always saved', 'eternal torment', Calvinism, and so on. We also seem to share the view that most of the so-called 'church' is false, and I was glad to read many of the names and ministries you rightly reject. For example, you denounce the GotQuestions website. I had once thought they were a sound ministry, but a few years ago, I wrote to them asking a question and received an answer from a woman who presumed to teach me! I was quite startled. After asking further questions, it transpired that many of their articles are in fact written by women (and only checked by men)! I warned them that not only they were directly disobeying the Lord, but by allowing women to teach their ministry would inevitably fall foul of Satan's deceptions. But they didn't se...
Could Jesus Christ Have Sinned?
We have before us a most solemn question and, appropriately, a most solemn answer to that question with an inescapable conclusion. Has a great and holy man, who somehow miraculously escaped sinning, saved us, or have we been saved by a sure and perfect Savior, One Who made no gamble and took no chances, One Who was sure to do the job?
Etiquette Used to Conceal the Sin of the Religiously-Correct
“They tell the prophets to keep quiet. They say, "Don’t talk to us about what’s right. Tell us what we want to hear. Let us keep our illusions. Get out of our way and stop blocking our path. We don’t want to hear about your holy God of Israel’” (Isaiah 30:10-11 GNB).
