LibraryTruth: What's Next?
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
If you're starting your own library, all that matters is that you start with what you love.
First of all, we'd like to say an "amen" for the love offerings that have poured in since we launched our LibraryTruth Project! (Note: We are, unfortunately, unable to use Confederate money donations at this time, but we still send thanks to our readers in Alabama.)Because of your generosity, our TruthBurners© are well on their way to getting Eckhart Tolle's Satanic tracts out of our libraries. So what now?
Our next target is David Wroblewski's The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. This novel has been described as "a riveting family saga as well as a brilliant exploration of the limits of language." What's wrong with it, you may ask, other than the author's funny foreign name? Well, take a look at Wroblewski's bio: David Wroblewski grew up in rural Wisconsin, not far from the Chequamegon National Forest where The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is set. He earned his master's degree from the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers and now lives in Colorado with his partner, the writer Kimberly McClintock, and their dog, Lola.
Apparently our society has become so blase about fornication that folks like Wroblewski feel comfortable admitting it to the whole world, right there on the internet. And it's no wonder Oprah would select an author like him for her club, considering her own assault on traditional marriage.
What are you going to do the next time you take your children to the library, and they see books like Edgar Sawtelle on the shelf? What are you going to do when they ask, "Mommy, if I live in sin, can I become a famous writer, too?"
Banned Books Week starts September 26--let's celebrate by banning Oprah's deviant propaganda!
