An Anchorage school librarian’s emails defending sexualized books in the stacks of elementary schools in Anchorage has gotten the attention of national news.
“An Anchorage, Alaska, district librarian privately defended a pornographic book that was in the district by invoking the Holy Bible as a defense of providing those materials to children, internal emails show,” Fox Digital News reported.
“The Polaris K-12 public school librarian Rachel Gregory discussed the book ‘This Is Gay’ that was previously in circulation in the district and said it was a ‘slippery slope’ to ban it, while comparing it to the Holy Bible in an October 2022 email to the school’s principal, Carol Bartholomew. The internal documents were obtained via public record request by a local parent, Jay McDonald, and were reviewed by Fox News Digital.”
Bartholomew appeared to solicit talking points and information from the librarian after receiving community pushback about the book, Fox News reported.
“This Book is Gay” discusses romps in saunas and sex parties, which can pose a higher risk for contracting sexually transmitted infections. However, the librarian maintained in the email that the book does not anywhere “encourage unsafe behavior.” Fox reported.
Jay MacDonald, who has read portions of the book aloud to the Anchorage School Board, has been ordered by the board to stop reading passages of books that he reports are in the school libraries. His records requests uncovered emails between school employees that related to their efforts to make unsavory sexualized material available to very young children in the Anchorage School District. Some of the records show that books were being hurried into the classrooms, while to the public, school employees were saying the books were not available for children.
How long are parents, and citizens in general, going to put up with this sexualization of children by obvious degenerates? And how dare this satanist invoke the Holy Bible?! There is a special place in the pit of hell for this one, and MANY like her.
People are sheep. They aren’t going to say anything. They will complain about it on an online forum. But when met face to face with it they will turn a blind eye and go back and complain online again. They won’t say anything. People opposed to this kind of behavior have no voice because they won’t open their mouths.
And also because people of faith are already sheep. How else would define a group of people who claim to be part of a flock?
Thank God for repentance. If geniune coming from a broken
and contrite spirit of a geniune believer there is salvation. Then no backsliding in the same sin no more.
The innocence of a child is a thing of beauty. This is evil
Sounds like Carole and Rachael have no business around kids. Let’s hope they’re investigated for possible crimes committed against underage children. If anyone has any connections in law-enforcement, I am sure exposing children to this filth isn’t legal.
They just can’t help themselves anymore.
Get your kids out of Anchorage public education. Leaving them there is child abuse.
The perverse and degenerate anti-morality of the extreme radical left is obviously evil, but more and more I am coming to believe that it is actually and literally demonic. What else can explain the rabid and consuming desire to sexualize and pervert young children?
It destroys the relationship between parent and child.
Remember, a goal of the leftists/statists/communists (sorry to repeat myself) is to make the All Powerful State your first and most important relationship. Having a strong bond between a child and a parent, or a man and wife, or an individual and their Deity of choice is the major obstacle to that goal.
This brand of Leftism is truly a mental.disorder.
My office opens at 8:00 am Monday. Send this librarian over to me for a psychiatric examination.
Why are these reprobates, druggies and sexual deviants in our local government?!
Something tells me it’s not the mayor who’s responsible, but our queer Assembly.
As long as parents and citizens remain part of the “I just want to be left alone” contingent this craziness will continue. The other side is part of the “just wants to win” contingent. The choice is clear, “get engaged and fight” or sit back and lose your way of life.
Very good point!
“His records requests uncovered emails between school employees that related to their efforts to make unsavory sexualized material available to very young children in the Anchorage School District. Some of the records show that books were being hurried into the classrooms, while to the public, school employees were saying the books were not available for children.”
This latest action keeps me voting NO on all school proposition requests of the voters which includes this year’s $37,787,000 Prop. 1. Go find the money elsewhere under your proverbial couch cushions or secret emergency stash. Apparently there is 37.7 million dollars* of unspent school bonds that the School District may apply to other School District capital improvements (such as safety vestibules, IP camera upgrades, new roofs, etc.) “AS THE SCHOOL BOARD IN ITS DISCRETION SHALL DETERMINE. Amazing, they have the exact amount of dollars in their back pocket NOW, but are asking us to fork over that amount in the form of bonding. Go figure!
A “hot” correlation with Sodom and Gomorrah–isn’t that biblical?
Loving all the information. Very helpful, very useful.
We, as parents, are perhaps not quite so stupid to believe that removing books touting homosexual sex and life-risking behavior from school libraries is quite the same thing as banning books. If parents want their kids to read this filth, they are free to get a copy on Amazon or even check it out from the public library. I wonder, then, if the librarian in question is either disingenuous or if she is as stupid as she thinks we are. Either way, she is a menace to children and should be removed from working in any school.
You get what you vote for. I know there are plenty of good people out there so why are so many nut cases runing for office and getting elected. These people used to be on the street corner on soap boxes. Now they are running for office.
Because they are being funded by the communists.
Parents, grandparents and all who care about children need to get involved in the schools in Anchorage and statewide. There are school board elections coming up. Find out who the candidates are and VOTE! Our children deserve better!
The Anchorage School District and municipal libraries have a hefty collection of porn designed as literature for children. Our children are being groomed and put in harms way by a handful of immoral educators and librarians. Consider it bait in a trap set for your children. Parents better get some skin in the game soon, or prepare for some serious consequences down the road.
Where are the protests?
It will not change unless 40 thousand parents do something. Parents you are responsible for your kids and how they go forward in life. These sexual predators are after your kids. Is this what you want your kids learning so they can go out into this world and succeed? What was wrong with good schools and policies we had in the 70s and 80s? We now are at the bottom of school learning the basics. These are tomorrows leaders and sex ed is not going to help in most jobs.
Yep yep! All an employer cares about attendance, quality, production, and do you respect and get along with others .
Why haven’t any parents filed Police Reports?
Where are these freaks coming from? Alaska is truly under attack!
Well. Todays churches
day. If you read this you should had gone because of all disgust living in sin world. If you wounded by the churches then turn your radio to katb 89.3 fm-anchorage get anne graham lotz book ‘wounded by God’s people’.
This book is not pornographic in my opinion. I wonder how many of MRAK’s trolls actually have a child in the ASD system?
Some by self report don’t even live in the school district.
Does it matter where we live, or whether we have children in the school district?
I do not think that should have any bearing whatsoever on whether it is appropriate reading material for pre-teens.
Local community standards define what is acceptable, an anonymous troll could be a fat guy on a couch in New Jersey
No, wrong again “frank”, RIGHT AND WRONG define what is (and what is not) acceptable. You know, absolute standards of morality, the things that you neo-Bolshevik radical leftist nihilists deny exist.
Where is this locality you speak of Frank? (If that is really your name)
What community has morals so low that teaching pre-teens how to have sex is OK? Point us to that community, Frank.
Your opinion is, as always, leftist cant.
What is your opinion worth?
Even if it is not pornographic, it is still inappropriate for children.
Or, do you think it is OK to teach pre-teens about anal sex between two boys?
It happens and teens should be made aware of the risks.
Are you speaking from experience, “frank”?
Should be made aware of the risks by the school system?
I am guessing your parents failed miserably in raising you, Frank. (If that is really your name)
Not pornographic enough for you, huh Frank. Like it more graphic?
As for not having a child in ASD: how goes Anchorage, so goes the rest of Alaska. Yeah, we really don’t want anybody grooming anybody’s kids- doesn’t have to be our own- for perversion. Nothing you’d agree with, however.
Isn’t there a lefty site you can hang out on (speaking of “trolls”)?
Again, thanks to the ever silent LGBTQ quietly pushing their agenda on children. Wake up folks. This is where weirdos go get their female hormones paid for, their surgeries etc. Google it.
These reprobates are pushing this garbage in public school libraries to indoctrinate more recruits so it all looks normal.
They are ALL absolutely out of their minds and GODLESS.
Take your children out of any district fighting for “porn”.
THIS filth imprints in little children’s brains. When they are older they seek it out and don’t know why. Then ICE comes looking for your “child” and puts them away in deviate living enslaved by the state as a felon and you will be endlessly rebuked. The children have no English language in their vocabulary to discuss these upsetting scenarios with a parent they trust. They, the children are already embarrassed by what they see and have seen. Later in life a regular adult relationship is unavailable to them and they don’t know why. This pornography is very bad for all involved. Those who willingly procure and provide this bad info to children are going to be judged accordingly. It is entrapment innocent souls. One of Satan’s favorite…
Did I miss something – is the Holy Bible on ASD’s shelves?
Some federal agent or satan minion camped out on my phone wouldn’t allow me to type the above. Many parents have not seen anything like what these children have been exposed too. I f you think you “know” what might be there you may not have seen anything like it your life and would not even be able to understand this yourself. I have never seen this either but I have talked to grown adults in NYC who explained for instance what they had “seen” and they as Christians have someone as adults to keep them on the right path. “That” type thing is what Anchorage School District is trying to norm into Anchorage schools. That is why they don’t want you to know. This is the permanent nuclear American family breakdown and this country they so foolishly hate. No more American families. The government has endless funds to pollute American society. These people should be brought to the bar of justice. And they will be.
So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! 8See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”
Now the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man on the earth to come in to us as is the custom of all the earth. Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.” So they made their father drink wine that night. And the firstborn went in and lay with her father, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.
It happened on the next day that the firstborn said to the younger, “Indeed I lay with my father last night; let us make him drink wine tonight also, and you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.” Then they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.
Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father.
I’m sure it was just a cultural thing at the time. Cultures change,,, right?
Get away from us Satan! You may receive your paycheck from Jehovah himself.
These passages are an example of the depraved societies who were plentiful neighbors of those who wanted to live a spiritually clean life nor a dirty one. Christians are not Pollyannas. They tell it like it is in anatomical terms. Akvoter86 thinks she is more self-righteous than the Creator of the universe.
God hasn’t written anything that didn’t come out of the minds of men.
“As your faith is so be it unto you.”. “Faith is not the possession of every man”.
God doesn’t need to write. But you know this.
It’s really sad the best argument you can muster is…but…but…but….the Bible.
I am more worried about Youth Pastors: books don’t rape children.
“A local youth pastor indicted Wednesday on one count of felony second-degree sexual abuse of a minor was arrested Friday after turning himself in to Alaska State Troopers. David Duffett, 45, is listed on the Bible Baptist Church of Fairbanks’ website as the youth director, bus ministries director and teacher of the Teen Church and Teens N Training programs.”
The churches don’t have nearly as good a system of covering up the bad acts of their employees as the schools do.
Also- Churches often all unarmed with no security plan, escape routes, nor drills which such places in america see
more attacks than
schools. I do know 3 anchorage churches its pastors and ushers are gun-carrying for the flocks. Churches unprepared must change just as being more
thorough at its employees and volunteers physical
and spiritual backgrounds
Oh really? For hundreds of years the Catholic church has been very adept at hiding or shuffling around hard, calcified sadists and child rapists and they continue to do so today.
The kids are very disturbed by this material. It is frightening. There is no reason for their minds to be polluted by activities they are not developed to engage in. These are “marital” tactics that are adult and private and how procreation continues. There is no reason for children to be exposed in a school to devious activities. Most parents do not discuss these matters until later in life as children enter young adult life. They speak of anatomical parts matter of factly within the privacy of the home and within values contexts the family has. The school has no ownership in the family unit. Government does not own children in the United States. The father still does own the child, and is the progenitor who gives his name and provides for the child and directs the child until it is an adult and on its own.
A large storm could come through our state and wipe half of us out and there would be little, if any, mention of it on the national news. So congratulations, our wokeness is so outrageous that we won the spot. That should bring in the tourists.
Deviants will always spoil a person’s innocence. If they don’t plant the material in the schools they will place them in the woods near where children play wherever parents are not. Do not trust anyone in the days leading to the end of wickedness. The deviants are worse than ever. They are in school programs. Parents are responsible for protecting their kids and warning them about predators. The guys in drag definitely and in churches for sure. Again parents do your job. Cut government budgets. We need one-tenth of government non-service. Imprinting children with filth is not government service we want to pay $2 million dollars this year in Alaska no matter what Furher Schwab says you should do as he prances around nude beaches wearing only a lace doily in broad daylight.
If ya don’t like the product or service, quit paying for it. You may be financing something illegal and be liable for racketeering charges.
Both books carry a certain amount of fiction.
“18 The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.) 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the whole earth. 20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked. 24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, 25 he said, ‘Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers.’ 26 He also said, ‘Praise be to the LORD, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem. 27 May God extend Japheth’s territory; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be the slave of Japheth.’”
There you have it. The sultry restart of the human race due to family dysfunction plus original white privilege.
Noah was a hybrid. His father questioned if he sired him. But don’t take Enoch’s word for it.
I heard by radio, a pastor’s teaching of it is instead of ham doing something, he just gossiped
to his brothers thats why by way of
noah ham brought the curse upon his own head.
In the Bible, anytime it says “and he knew him,” it’s probably not a good thing.
Porn is a very white, Christian, upper-class, cis-gendered, and hetero-centric concept. And Groomers are for ski areas,,,,,and nudist colonies.
Ironic sarcasm, or clueless leftist divorcement from reality?
Shem was respectful of his father. He was noted for that. Others lost seniority for being disrespectful of the private person of their father. They received an accurate education about the consequences of disrespect even within the human family.
I say, you can believe in a twisted word! All words can be twisted! I was taught sit on a stump! And reflect? Gud gods will be there! And all speaks and says! Be quiet in kind mind and soul!
The child porn defenders are really digging on this one.
I’m not sure which is sadder. The progressives bending themselves into knots to deflect by yelling “ what about the Bible?” or the idiot thumpers who are so insecure in their faith they engage with the progressives.
Wish both sides would drive out to Girdwood, go out into the inlet at low tide, and throw endless amounts of mud at each other.
Well, the comments seem to fall along two lines.
The first is “this is not an appropriate book/s for school age children.”
The second is “the Bible had sexually related content in it, so this is just fine.”
Which is a comment based on letting children be children, and stopping groomers from taking advantage of the schools and schoolchildren?
Explain to school-age children what it means when the Bible says he spilled his seed on the ground. The Bible is a story book. It teaches history. Not all history is g rated.
Very true there Greg. Not all history is G rated.
But, is the bible prominently displayed in the school library? Are school employees actively pushing the bible on students?
Is the bible even in the school library?
And, let’s talk access. in order to read about how to pleasure another man with your mouth, all you have to do is flip through “this book is gay.” It is prominently displayed with drawings, etc… In order to find the salacious passages in the bible, one has to spend quite a bit of time searching, or knowingly seek that information out via internet searches.
So, not really an equivalancy there Greg. Nice try though. You get a B for effort.
I’ll take it.
Christians aren’t pollyannas. They are down to earth truth tellers often telling it like it clinically how it is, Church of England etc. not withstanding aka Christendom.
If your preferred communication style is heavily embroidered you may not enjoy American Christians communications.
Apparently they are or the powers think they are. Why else would priests leave out certain books of earlier Bibles such as the book of Enoch? It was all right there in the Dead Sea scrolls. Did they not want people to know or not want people to be scared about the fact that Enoch was taken up to the mothership and a chariot of fire? Would that have freaked people out back then? Would it now? At least I left in the park where Jesus killed a guy once, and so did Moses so at least there’s hope for the rest of us. How many hundreds if not thousands of people did Joshua kill? Today’s Bible is an edited history book. I prefer the sock it to me baby I can take it version.
And thank goodness that Christendom is a term no longer used.
“but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
As Fr. Marx (may he rest in peace) used to say, “Put that in your pipe and smoke it!”
Yes that’s a sin but it doesn’t mean the perpetrator is doomed. It’s just another thing from a fallible man, and one worthy of repentance.
Thought crime! The very definition of totalitarianism. The essence of Orwell’s Big Brother. Someone who we must not only be forced to love, but also fear. The essence of the master/slave relationship. This is morality? I don’t think so. It would be like living in North Korea.
It seems that most aren’t in favor of these books being on shelves in libraries accessible by our children, including myself.
The school boards are often insulating themselves from the issue by forcing the use of record requests or some manner of requesting information.
My question is who is setting the policy that these books should be there in the first place? Somewhere, somebody has a plack on their desk or their office which says ‘the buck stops here’ and I honestly want to know who that is! Passing the buck and covering up simply doesn’t cut it!!!
If one were to start at the state level it should be obvious who OK’s this policy.
Maybe this is so insidious that some sort of federal funding will be withheld if these books aren’t made available to students in which case the solution is simple but not without cost!
Most people dislike the Bible believing in error they may miss something andcit’s consequence. The good news of the kingdom will must be preached for a witness and then the end will come. It is preached for legal notice not salvation if you’re uninterested. It depends upon the condition of your heart. People are quite arrogant these days as they ruin childhoods. They needn’t learn another thing. They know it all already and are quite pleased with themselves.
Deep within all of the monotheistic religions is a secret death wish; for this world to come to an end. No need to worry about building a just society when the end of days is upon us, which is exactly what the monotheists have been saying for millennia. All three of the Abrahamic faiths give us a ridiculous foundation we are told we have to believe in, and if we don’t we’re going to burn in hell for the simple reason of being born and then told we’re wormlike sinners without excuse and that we must believe in something after being provided zero proof for it. What a loving offer, eh?
Another prodect of the scumbag teachers union
