“In the Lecture Halls of the University, Spreading of Western Values is Banned”

That, is how the “commies” do it still, feel free to take an offense, see if I care!!!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Head of the Department of Education in China, Yuan pointed out two days ago, that in the college classrooms, there would be a ban on the spread of western thoughts and values, and that there would be no allowing blasphemy of the leaders of the Communist Party, and those speeches that spoke up against the functioning of society; that teachers are NEVER to rant, or to verbalize their angers toward the world.

On the 29th, Yuan told on the “How to Increase and Improve and Innovate the Environment Which the High School (Colleges) Instructors Work in”, that the college professors are to follow the bottom lines of politics, of law, of morality.

Based off of the reports, there were officials from Beijing, Shanghai, Jiansu Educational Executive Departments, and Peking University, Chinghwa, Wuhan, Sandong and Xiamen University’s founder who’d showed up at the conferences.

Yuan stressed, that they must stress the forms of the classes, especially the materials taught in classes, as well as the classroom management issues.

He’d stated, that they must try to control the foreign publications in classes, to not allow ANY influential materials that allowed for the spread of western values inside the schools; there would be NO allowing blasphemy or libel and slander of the leaders of the Community Party, or any of the language that dissed socialism; and there would NOT be any thoughts of against the legislatures, or laws to spread through the class sessions; and there would be NO ranting by the professors in class, of spreading of their negative values to the pupils.

Yuan stressed, that they must enforce the theories, to introduce the Communist Party Leader, Xi’s beliefs into the materials they’re teaching in class, to the classrooms, to the pupils’ minds.  At the same time, to control the activities of the internet, to set up an easily manageable campus online network.

And that, is how a COMMUNIST run country operates, and hello, IF you banned ALL western thoughts from the schools, then, how many MAJORS would there be in your colleges???  Let’s see, philosophy is gone, as that, is western, remember Aristotle, Plato, etc., etc., etc., they’re NO Chinese, are they?  Nope, and, there’s NO social sciences majors either, as most of the theorists of those areas ARE from the western realm, and so, by doing so, China IS limiting the students, from having a WIDER, more WORLDLY view, which in turn, will only DESTROY the competitive edges of the people that are being “cranked out” from the systems!  And, in this case, COMMUNIST belief should also GET banned, shouldn’t it, as communism is developed by Karl Marx, so, why don’t you BAN that too, huh???

A Children’s Book about Gay Parents

How could you possibly EXPOSE our daughter/son to such atrocities???  Uh, just WATCH me!!!

We’re all coming OUT of the closets these days, and so, it’s NO surprise, that there would be books on gay parents, but, we’d never heard about a children’s book ON that topic, up until N_O-W, and, because matters as delicate as this, the government fears, would taint the minds of young readers, they’d DESTROYED the books, or rather, asking the rest of the public to do so.

A children’s book about gay parents, do you see anything wrong with that?  I mean, it’s NOT as if after you’d read books about gay parents to your kids as their bedtimes, they’re going to become gays OR lesbians, hello, hello, hello?  Homosexuality IS inborn, are you FUCKING kidding me?  And, IF you want to blame, blame it on the CHEMICAL imbalances during the women’s PREGNANCIES.

A children’s book about gay parents, that’ll totally SHOCK those religious fanatics all right!!!  How can public libraries support such an idea?  Do they NOT know, that children are easily influenced by what they read?

Exploring the Censorship Fight Over Trying to Publish “Ulysses”

From The New York Times, by D. Garner…

Kevin Birmingham’s new book, “The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle For James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’” about the long censorship fight over James Joyce’s novel, braids stories about women’s rights and heroic female editors, about World War I, about anarchism and modernism, about tenderness and syphilis, and about how literature can bend an era’s consciousness.

It isolates a great love story, that of Joyce and Nora Barnacle, one that comes with a finger-burning side order of some of the most cheerfully filthy correspondence in literary history.

About Joyce, he writes: “He wanted people to read novels and carefully as ardently as sleeplessly as they would read dirty letters sent from abroad.  It was one of modernism’s great insights.  James Joyce treated readers as if they were lovers.”

When Joyce embarked upon “Ulysses” in 1915, he was in his 30s, impoverished, unemployed, married with two children and living in Italy.  The war’s battle front was nearby.  His literary career was a shambles.  He had devastating eye problems brought on, Mr. Birmingham argues, by syphilis, and endured more than a dozen surgeries.

As excerpts from “Ulysses” appeared in the Chicago magazine The Little Review, edited by Margaret Anderson, the magazine began to be harassed by censors, partly because of its supposed links to radicals and anarchists.

Mr. Birmingham describes that while anti-vice crusaders wanted to ban “Ulysses” to protect what they considered to be female sensibilities, many of the book’s champions were women.  Upon reading Joyce’s prose, Anderson said her partner at The Little Review, Jane Heap: “This is the most beautiful thing we’ll ever have.  We’ll print it if it’s the last effort of our lives.”  Both women would end up in court.

Sylvia Beach, the owner of Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris, published the first edition of Joyce’s novel in 1922 and worked to smuggle the book into the United States.  Mr. Birmingham says of her, “She wanted to give the world something more than pajamas and condensed milk.”

Other heroes include Ezra Pound, who once explained he couldn’t help Joyce get his poems published in England, because he’d burned all his bridges.  They also include Ernest Hemingway, who helped Beach smuggle copies of “Ulysses” into the United States, and John Quinn and Morris Ernst, who each defended Joyce’s writing in court.

This book is populated by the less heroic as well.  Virginia Woolf didn’t like “Ulysses” and passed up a chance to be its first publishers.

Mr. Birmingham writes that Joyce’s novel was “a new rendering of the way people think” and he explains why good history, not just Joyce, matters.  “It can be difficult to see how Joyce’s novel (how any novel, perhaps) could have been revolutionary.  This is because all revolutions look tame from the other side.”

He adds: “We forget what the old world was like, forget even that things could have been any other way.”

And so, this, is still how censorship is going way too far, because someone writes something that offends someone else, therefore that piece of writing should be banned?  What about the freedom of the press and the freedom of the speech?  And, if not for those forward thinking people of the older times, where would we be today???

Standing Ovation Greets Pastor C. Worley, Who Made Anti-Gay Statements, by Isolde Raftery, James Eng, MSNBC.com

Although gay rights and anti-hate groups responded with outrage when a North Carolinian pastor called for gays and lesbians to be fenced in so they eventually die off, he was greeted with a standing ovation by his church members when he approached the pulpit, the Hickory Record reported.

“I appreciate all the support,” Pastor Charles Worley told the one-hundred or so congregants at Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C. on Sunday, according to the Record.  Several members stood and spoke out, others threw up their hands in support of their pastor.

“I’ve got a King James Bible,” Worley said, according to the Record.  “I’ve been a preacher for 53 years.  Do you think I’m going to bail out on this?”

The 71-year-old delivered a sermon on Mother’s Day, in response to President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriages.  Just a day before the President’s announcement, the voters in North Carolina approved a bill that banned same-sex marriages.

In the sermon, Worley told his congregation: “I figured out a way, to get all the lesbians and the queers, but I couldn’t get it passed Congress—build a fence and put all the lesbians, the queers, the homosexuals in separate pens, and fly over and drop some food, and have the fence electrified, so they can’t get out.”

Are you FUCKING (oopsy!!!) kidding me here?  Didn’t God TELL us to love each other, regardless of our races, our ages, along with everything ELSE that may separate us, making us into INDIVIDUALS?  And, here’s this PSYCHO (b/c he is???) that uses the NAME of G-O-D, to instill a sense of HOMOPHOBIA?  Are you SURE that you’re NOT doing S-A-T-A-N’s work here, Pastor, Reverend, Preacher, Priest of WHATEVER else you may be calling yourselves?  Yeah, that just shows you how INVALID religion turns out to be, feel free to SUE me, see if I care, I’m still just “reporting” what I see here, and, maybe, “inputting” some of the OPINIONS that I am still MORE than E-N-T-I-T-L-E-D to.
