I just think it's bad practice to have a hate group promote their agenda in such a venue.

"This is proof that more than ever, we are getting destroyed in the battle for the hearts and minds of our children," he told the publication. "Publicly funded libraries are green-lighting 'gender marker and name change clinics' while denying a story time that would involve the reading of a book that teaches biblical wisdom. How much more clear can it get?"

Doesn't a guy change his gender to "bread" in your book?

Pipe down, weirdo.

OH - moreover, I can think of at least three name changes in Genesis alone: Abram becomes Abraham, Sarai becomes Sarah, and Jacob becomes Israel.

// and god's gender marker changes a few times as well

"No, we will pass on having you run a program in our space," Cameron was told by the Rochambeau Public Library in Providence, Rhode Island. "We are a very queer-friendly library. Our messaging does not align."

I'm 100% certain the bolder was completely made up by Mike Seaver.

He is also the idiot ACTOR who refused to kiss another woman while doing his job as an ACTOR and they had to bring his wife in to finish ONE SCENE. He is the poster boy for being the victim.

Oppressors seek out situations where they get to play the victim for fame and profit.  Christ would not approve.

Kirk is not shocked. This was all deliberate on his part. He wanted to be turned down so he can play the "public libraries will allow drag queens to groom children but will not allow me to spread the Word of the Lord" faux-persecution bullshiat.

He knows what he is doing.

Yep. Exactly as I thought. Cherry picked libraries in the bluest of states to get the rejections he wanted.

He truly is a reprehensible piece of shiat. No wonder his birthday party is such a miserable, lonely non-event.

Every library needs to buy every book ever written.

Replace words like "woke" and "LGBTQ friendly" with "basic human decency," which is what it is, and you'll really see who these people truly are.

IIRC, the LORD changes from "Elohim" (the Mighty Ones) to singular "El" as well.  And then mysteriously later to "Yahweh" (mistranslated as Jehovah because they used the consonants for Yahweh with the vowel diacritics for "Adonai" to avoid committing blasphemy and being smothered with a giant rock).  Wikipedia says Yahweh was one of a pantheon including El back when the Hebrews were polytheistic.

I could be wrong about any of that since I became an agnostic atheist.

Well. There is a metric assload of symbolism in Biblical God Names that I probably cannot fit into one post. Without getting extremely esoteric and basically starting with lessons in Hebrew language, I'll just say that the Divine Names are used to denote* specific Divine attributes - judgement, mercy, omnipotence, etc.

You're right that "elohim" is the plural of "el", but that name is used to denote the attribute of judgement (where IIRC the singular form is used to denote "power", but I don't care to look that up). There's an interesting bit of trivia, that it's the first Divine Name used in the Bible ("In the beginning, God [The Judge] created the world") so it's kind of fitting that it uses the royal "we".

The Tetragrammaton (hi, Equilibrium fans!) denotes the attribute mercy and is the "unpronounceable" one generally rendered in English as "Yahweh" - there's also supposedly a 72-letter name that's been lost in the sands of time - and there are traditional conventions to avoid rendering it "as pronounced" (so, using the "wrong" diacritics).

The name "adonai" just means "master" or "lord" (as old-timey folks would have used it to address those of nobility or higher social class), and I think all the times it's actually used in the Bible it's part of a longer phrase (adonai tzeva'ot - "lord of hosts"). Using adonai as the catch-all Name is a convention adopted later (not sure when, but I'd guess in the Talmudic era).

All that is beside my original point, though - that sometimes the GENDER marker used for god (which we do not have in English, as our verbs are the same whether the person doing them is male or female or neither or both) is generally the male, but sometimes the female. That did not make it over to the King James version, curiously.

HTH :)

// not that god is ever called "she" directly, but there are words rendered in the traditional text that seem to match the female gender marker, or are traditionally pronounced that way
// it's all very confusing, and like I said, without considerable grounding in some of the traditions it'll lose a LOT in translation
// and yeah, there's some considerable scholarship behind the idea that (early?) Jews/Judaism united a bunch of different cults into one monotheistic entity with many names
// I am also an agnostic, FWIW

Compromise gif guy insert:

1. Agree to read his book if allow struggling Christian actor to read to kids.

2. Find local LGBT church or criteria individual named Christian, and be as square in any sort of pre event meetup. Clean social media and ID as well.

3. Perform that shiat in drag.

I'm sure that a solid majority of all the public libraries, and virtually all church libraries, found between Bumfark, Nev., and Cousinmarry, S.C., would be happy to proudly display this man's book.

I believe he is entitled to overturn this librarian's ruling by challenging them to a Rochambeau. I believe by tradition the librarian gets the first kick. You may be shushed and ask to leave the library if you make too much noise after.

Funnily enough, Dolly Parton is a devout Christian, and people love her.  Kids, old people, straight, gay, and everything in between - the whole shebang.  I'm sure that some people don't care for her, and she must realize that, but it doesn't stop her from going on and being a good person.

Dolly is pretty close to what your average Christian claims to be despite embodying a lot of the traits they're supposed to be opposed to.  I may think she's deluded about the fundamental nature of the universe, but I would be fine having her as a neighbor.

Kirk... I bet he's an insufferable ass to the point you'd move to get away from him.

The people in the comments seem to think promoting his book is the exact same thing as carrying his book. They can carry his book all day, but they don't have to promote it at all.
