Dead White Authors

Huncoat Primary School, near Accrington, Lancashire in England has just been through one of those Politically Correct witch hunts that seem to afflict Local Education Authorities these days. The subject of their latest hunt, for those who hold opinions deviant from those that the LEA deem to be 'correct' was that old standby Enid Blyton.

Yes dead though she is, this authoress has long been the centre of a cult of politically correct driven hatred by the feeble minded and stupid, because her books, written in a very different age, and with values that reflected opinions of the time, contain what the left like to call 'inappropriate ethnic stereotypes' with references to 'gypsies', and 'golliwogs' and featuring a dog with a name starting with 'N' .... the word that can't be said out loud by anyone except rappers (who can make millions using it in songs and CD covers .... but that's not a fact that groups like Lancashire LEA likes to consider). So out goes what's left of the authors works, banished from the school library, and all so that the school could get a 'Race Equality Mark' from the council ahead of the opening of a new school library.

It's a bit reminiscent of the book burnings in Nazi Germany, where books that didn't meet the regimes idea of 'correctness' were ripped from the libraries and burnt in piles on the streets (instead of being burnt in a recycling plant) .... but the irony of this, probably escapes those who undertake this kind of action, possibly because they don't have the right kind history books in their school libraries?

Enid Blyton's Books Consigned To The Fires Of History


Still, while we are in the book eradication mode, there are a few other books circulating in the Accrington area that the local council may wish to ban .... these books have content that reflects outdated attitudes, and are not only freely available, but every school has at least one of them on the premises. Yes I am talking about the books used in local religions, which contain a few dodgy racial and cultural references of their own.

Here's a few just to illustrate what I mean from the Bible:

Women as the inferior of men:
  • Timothy 2:12: says: "I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, she must be silent." Or maybe this from Ephesians 5:22: "Wives, submit to you husbands as to the Lord"

Women get it again, when witches are attacked as a group:
  • Exodus 22:18: "Do not allow a sorceress to live." - Ironically Accrington is only about 6 miles from the location of a great witch trial in the 17th century, based around Pendle hill.   

There's even references to sanction gang rape:
  • Book of Judges 19:25-28:  A Jewish man is trapped by a mob of non Jews, so he "took his concubine and sent her outside to them, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At daybreak the woman went back to the house where her master was staying, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight. When her master got up in the morning and opened the door of the house and stepped out to continue on his way, there lay his concubine, fallen in the doorway of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, ‘Get up; let’s go.’ But there was no answer. Then the man put her on his donkey and set out for home.”

Or how about genocide:
  • Samuel 15:3: "This is what the Lord Almighty says ... 'Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.'" ... and this is backed up by Psalm 137: which celebrates this terrible revenge: "Happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us / He who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks." 

Homosexuals - a protected group in PC driven ideology, are condemned:
  • Romans 1:27: "In the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error."

Slavery is still condoned in the Bible:
  • Peter 2:18: "Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the cruel."

Now I don't know about the good burghers of Lancashire County Council but these all seem to be against equality on the gender and slave front, and therefore full of 'inappropriate ethnic stereotypes' .... but if Christianity is not the thing, what about that other 'protected group', the followers of Islam?

Well the Quran (and the accompanying Hadiths) still condones Slavery - the prophet of Islam kept slaves throughout his life (a fact which means slaves are still kept in many Muslim countries, even though its 'illegal').

33:50 - "Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty."

And the Quran still has instructions to kill Christians and Jews.
  1. "O believers, fight the unbelievers who are near to you, and let them find in you a harshness; and know that Allah is with the god fearing" (Sura al-Tawba 9:29).  
  2. "Fight against those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger, have forbidden -- such men as practice not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book -- until they pay tribute out of hand and have been humbled" (Sura Al Ma idah 5:33).
  3. "The punishment of those who wage war against God and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;" 
  4. Sura (5:51) - "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people." Sura (5:80) Sura (3:28) Sura (3:118) Sura (9:23) Sura (53:29) Sura (3:85) Sura (1:5-7) 
There are allegedly 123 verses of the Quran that refer to killing non Muslims ..... doesn't that count as inappropriate for Lancashire County Councils Race Equality mark? 

Or is it only dead white authors who can offend?
