Defending God at the Library

by | July 21, 2016

Ok, I know I should be taking this all serious, but gods getting censored at the local library tickles my irony bone. (Get your mind out of the gutter)

An Ontario woman whose community newsletter was banned from her local library has won the right to distribute it on the institution’s pamphlet stands, after a year-long battle that nearly ended up in court.

Good for her, censorship of books…. And pamphlets is bad, even ones with silly things in them.

“Pointedly, this Constitution opens with the declaration stating that ‘Canada is governed under the supremacy of God and the rule of Law,’ ” she wrote. “Yet, why are we law-abiding citizens allowing these apostates and atheists, who are in the minority, to install their undemocratic rule of terror in which mention of His Name has become anathema in public governments, their arms-length commissions, colleges of physicians and surgeons, universities and some secular media?”

And then the full measure of the fascist librarian-government complex fell on this poor woman, whose only crime is defending Thor.

Hell no.

Seriously, he’s one of the Avengers, damnit. You don’t censor the God of Thunder and live to tell.

    I for one eagerly anticipate the installation of the atheist undemocratic rule of terror.

    Recalcitrant xtians will be forced to proselytize for the apostate and atheist cause, including but not limited to, haranguing other citizens going about their business in public places, going door to door early Sunday morning and using reason and empirical evidence to make moral decisions about complex social issues.

    Funny story. As atheists we of course allow everyone to believe what they wish to, but only object when they stick their myths into our faces and insist that we believe the same as them.

    I live for the day when apostate is a badge of honour instead of a reason to be killed.

    We have had a long history of good dealings with our local library. They once told me they were in the process of changing their policy to not allow religious pamphlets because big churches will drop off dozens of different pamphlets each with many copies. The small churches few, or none. How do you display that? And how is this fair to small churches, and other groups like ours.

    I see the problem. They think it’s fair to deny it to everyone to not give a benefit to the biggest and richest churches.

    However, the biggest and richest churches are easy to find. A better solution would be to provide a list of alternatives so people can find the smaller churches. This would level the field a bit. It’s another type of fairness.

    But that doesn’t solve the logistical problems. Maybe you could suggestion one pamphlet at a time.
