Huckleberry Finn & Kill a Mockingbird

Huckleberry Finn & Kill a Mockingbird

DULUTH, Minn. — Two classic American novels will no longer be required reading in eastern Minnesota schools because they contain racial slurs.

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “To Kill a Mockingbird” will be dropped from the Duluth school district’s English classes next year. School officials said the move is part of an effort to be considerate to all students, particularly students of color.  – New York Post

Huck Finn with his arm touching Jim …that is offensive?

Bizzare that the New York Post isn’t slamming Mr. Witherspoon, president of the Duluth chapter of the NAACP, for his totalitarian attempts to ban books. Years ago the New York Post would have ridiculed over-zealous individuals who sought to remove books from libraries because of their immoral content. But now, somehow, magically, over-night the lowest possible denominator, i.e. I am offended, is honored by the New York Post. Here is why.

Courts, Prosecutors, King County Officials, Police, Social Workers, Teachers, Educators, Planned Parenthood, …you name it have all played the offense card so hard that soon nothing, no-one, not anyone, not-even-you will be safe to speak, act, let alone think to explore ideas and concepts of any kind. (Just think jury duty and be afraid) All of this  I am offended nonsense will come crashing in upon everyone, including those who are experts at what offends others. I am offended by Mr.Stephan Witherspoon, president of the Duluth chapter of the NAACP’s undemocratic emotional hypertension – think he is going to shut-up because I am offended?

As a nice little sub-note, it was Huckleberry Finn & To Kill a Mockingbird which had a major impact on “softening,” or liberalizing individuals to support the fact that everyone is human and should be treated as such. You know Mr. Witherspoon treating others as equals when they carry and read To Kill A Mockingbird through-out the halls of high school.

But I deviate from the spiritual.

These false-prophets pounding the payment to create over-zealous followers of their emotional dysfunctional offensiveness preaching and proclaiming what others should be offended about are being used by the powers to be as wicked tools to silence one, and only one message. This is why you see with-in the so-called Cultural Christian Church many weeds choking out the clear gospel of Truth that offends. There is only one Truth that will set you free – but oh how it is offensive.

In short, the goal is to stop the offense that comes from preaching the message of the cross that Jesus is offering to all who repent.

Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case, the offense of the cross has been abolished. (Galatians 5:11)

So whitewashed is the preaching in the Cultural Christian Church that individuals don’t even know that any hope of salvation starts with and includes a message that offends.

Your choice.

You can fall on Jesus and be broken to pieces in humility or you can wait till Judgment Day and be crushed by God.

Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: ” ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone’? Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.” (Luke 20:17-18)

Bonus Wisdom:

Stephan Witherspoon, NAACP

 Stephan Witherspoon, president of the Duluth chapter of the NAACP, called the move “long overdue.”  – Star Tribune

No Mr. Witherspoon, wrong. Dead wrong.

What Mr. Witherspond is long overdue is freedom of thought, freedom to explore an idea, concepts and the variety of the Universe without your hot breath breathing down the back of others necks. Your dictatorial and totalitarian policing of this primary freedom of mankind is to enslave all to your petty prejudices. This will not end well. See French Revelation for one example.

Back to the main point: best to ask God to guide you to a disciple of Jesus that will tell you the truth and nothing but the truth so help them, God. Because the road to freedom begins by hearing directions that offend your pride, sin, and selfishness.

Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? (Galatians 4:16)

Your choice – Mr. Witherspoons dysfunctional sinful sensitivity or a Jesus that will call you Satan, a dog or stupid if it is warranted.

Want to be taught by God how to love others?

Want the power to love others – truly, selflessly love others?

Then get on your knees before a Jesus that will offend you with the Truth.

After all, Jesus was willing to be offended by you to the point of being crucified, spit-on, called names and slandered beyond belief because He loves.

Do not fall for this false concern concept – learn from the Living God what is true love.

and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:2)

(nypost.com)—Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” was published in 1960. Lee writes about a small town in the South, and a white Depression-era lawyer who defends a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman. The novel was taught to ninth-graders in the Duluth school district.

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was written by Mark Twain. The 1885 novel is about a friendship between a young white boy and a runaway slave as they escape down the Mississippi River. It was taught in 11th grade.

“The feedback that we’ve received is that it makes many students feel uncomfortable,” said Cary. “Conversations about race are an important topic, and we want to make sure we address those conversations in a way that works well for all of our students.”
