Georgia Looking To Take Hard Line Against Porn In Libraries

The presence of materials that essentially are pornographic or obscene in public and school libraries has become at issue in recent years as parents become aware of the offensive materials and protest.

Those items are in libraries often because of pro-LGBT agenda activists who want to see their lifestyle choices promoted to the point they are accepted.

They argue the First Amendment allows such materials, even though case law has made clear those protections don’t apply to obscene and patently offensive publications.

Now reports confirm that one state is looking at taking what would be a very hard line against those purveyors: possible criminal penalties.

Just the News confirms a new bill in the Georgia legislature would make school librarians liable for distribution of obscene materials to students.

SB154 would require that the law regarding the “sale or distribution of harmful materials to minors” would be “applicable to libraries operated by schools.”

The proposal from state Sen. Greg Dolezal would make the distribution of such materials “a misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature.”

In the report, Martha Bongiorno, of the Georgia Library Media Association, insisted that those materials were needed by children.

“If we really care about our students and their mental health and helping them become well-rounded citizens of the world, we need to be able to provide the materials to do that,” she said.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution said the state’s current law “shields the gatekeepers at public libraries — plus those at any school, college or university — from criminal prosecution for sharing materials considered irredeemably sexually explicit.”

Cindy Martin, a co-plaintiff in a successful federal lawsuit against Forsyth County Schools over free speech connected with books in libraries there, said there are “explicit books” that are problematic, the report said.

“Martin and Alison Hair had charged there were obscene books in Forsyth school libraries and a federal judge agreed that the school violated their speech rights by banning Hair from meetings,” the report said.

She had read into the public record a sexually suggestive passage from one of the books – a passage the library considered fine for children but banned by the board because of “profane” language.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.

This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.

This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.

Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.

That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
