FTA:
Flack also recited passages of a book that contained swear words and said one of the books had 79 f--s, among other curses.

"It shouldn't take a form," Flack said. "If I send an email to a man who's in charge of protecting the innocence of our children, and the response is fill out a form, I would consider that a mill-stone offense."

Flack was referring to an email returned to him by new superintendent Uwe Gordon, who told Riley he could not remove books from the libraries based on one person's objections and referred him to school policy on how to submit his requests.

Looks like it's been a long time since you had kids in the system Karen, why don't you STFU.

I would be overjoyed if my kid actually read a book on his own.  I don't much care if it is filled end to end with swears.  I assume by age twelve the kid has heard every swear word unless they are very sheltered.

I might be concerned and have a chat if it was Mien Kampf or Atlas Shrugged, bad words don't bother me as much as bad ideas.  I don't know that I would actually stop him from reading either of them, but I would want him to know why the ideas are so toxic.

Matthew 18:6 for those who are wondering:

If anyone causes one of these little ones-those who believe in me-to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Pull the bible from libraries. It's full of murder, rape, incest, fratricide and other atrocities...and that's by the main characters. Not to mention the donkey dicks and horse semen.

The problem is these dimwits have never read a book.
Including their vaunted Bible.

So, since I went to seminary school before I found reason, and I actually know my Bible, Riley Flack just threatened to kill someone in public.

But nothing will happen because he was hiding behind Jebus.

This is a sickness.

2 Kings 2: 23-24 is my absolute favorite bible verse.

From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. "Get out of here, baldy!" they said. "Get out of here, baldy!" He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.

Maybe if they were not bad parents with awful ideologies, they would be able to raise their children in some manner other than preventing them from ever seeing that there are different viewpoints.

So, how about you tell your little Johnny or Judy what they can and can't read.

Let the kids with the smart parents tell them what they can or can't do.

You parent your own child, and then wonder why they move so far away when they can.
 
2022-08-11 3:52:09 PM  
Home school your children if you don't want them to 'see' 'hear' or 'speak' your supposed atrocities. This bullsh*t from these self-righteous people is getting really tiring.

The irony is that the people who want to ban books probably haven't read a book since they were in school, if they can read at all.
 
2022-08-11 3:59:17 PM  
Stop deluding yourselves that your dim-witted, brain-washed children even read books unless forced to. I seriously doubt they're perusing the school library in their free time.

Given the language, I'm guessing this isn't a book assigned to first graders. What innocence do you think you're protecting you goose stepping moron?

Never understood what those 35+ other boys did to get killed.  If any of their parents knew why their sons had been attacked, they would have stoned Elisha or at least forced him to leave the vicinity in a huge hurry.

The thing is, the book burners never end up on the right side of history. Not once.

You'd think long experience with failure would have taught them something, but no, that's just how stupid they are.

Probably not, but they go to a building in their fanciest clothes every Sunday to have someone read a summarized version of middle eastern philosophy at them.

You seem to think the job of schools is "to safeguard the innocence of children."

In reality, their raison d'être is to educate children.

This Riley Flack guy has been attention whoring himself all the way to Fox News.

Also his LinkedIn pops up on the Googles. He lists his profession as Jesus Follower at Your Mom's House. I guess that's a step up from Walmart associate.

... which necessarily involves intruding on their innocence. If you want your children to stay innocent then the last think you should do is send them to hang out with other children in a school.

"Book removal suggestions" should not be a phrase that actually is applicable in reality.

But it is.  Ugh.

Yep, the Bible says the ancient Israelites murdered infants after they captured the cities of the people they invaded, all on orders from their god.

Would absolutely have loved it if someone had called him out on what a millstone offense actually means. I am fairly certain he does not.

Oh no. Books! Truly the instrument of the devil.

How about you teach your kids to be decent people with good morals and empathy and then you won't have to worry about whether they'll be corrupted via ink printed on paper. I mean, if you're concerned that reading a book about how black people weren't treated well or that LGBTQ people deserve rights is going to turn your child into a demon spawn, then maybe you're just a shiat parent.

NAH. Simply go to your local library/bookstore and reshelve the bible next to Mein Kampf.
/while at it, put 'Atlas Shrugged' next to it.

In general nothing makes someone look more like a dumbfark than quoting Bible verses.

Now this one I can get into!

Problem:  the man being emailed is NOT IN CHARGE OF PROTECTING THE INNOCENCE OF YOUR CHILDREN. You might think he should, but that is not his responsibility.

Here's a novel idea just like the movies and TV shows you don't like because of "reasons", tell your kids to not check out those books.

If they go against your wishes and check it out, maybe YOU'RE the problem and not the books.

Having a live and let live attitude I have never been more hostile towards people of a certain faith until they started strong-arming the government to push that faith on the rest of us.
 
2022-08-11 4:42:55 PM  
Banning books has always been dangerous but in this day and age it's still dangerous but also kind of a joke unless you home school your kid and keep him away from all computer tech and don't let him around any friends. But then that's dangerous in a different way because you'll be producing a psychopath.
