What IS literature? Why do we study it?

That was the the topic of the entire 3 hour and 10 minute Literature Theory class I have the opportunity to take notes of for a student with disability the first half of this summer.

…expression of a person’s thoughts/ideas written down (or not)? message in a story? artistic merit? subjectivity or objectivity? something that lasts? what society values based of economic conditions? etc.

So much universality and relative talk. Theorist can’t pin down the exact answer. These college kids (mainly English majors) will be reading Freud and Marx, among others. In my eyes, it’s a pity and disturbing to know how confused even the professor seems to be. He didn’t even give an answer. He agreed with the class a lot.

I was ITCHING to say things in today’s class; so when everyone was dismissed, I have requested permission to interject my two cents when ever I feel like. It was granted. ;D We shall see how it goes!

~CONVERSATION CARRIED ON~

Friend: isn’t literature just “words on paper”??

Me: Apparently, according to this class, “words on paper” is your opinion, postulate, theory, assumption, subjectivity. Thus, it is not necessarily true for someone else. What they are teaching is the POSTMODERNISM worldview: reality is what individuals or social groups make it to be.

Friend: So nothing is TRUE. What a wonderful world that must be

What are your thoughts?

Socialism in the classroom just like socialism in the government!! A good watch. Share with all your liberal friends. Maybe they will get a little bit better educated…

I really enjoyed watching this movie. There was a beautiful message behind it. In fact, watched this movie only once and have it completely memorized, with the addition of some lines. I would definitely go out and watch it all over again.

It clearly proclaims how life is precious and how we need to preserve it dearly.

OCTOBER BABY opened in theaters this past weekend with incredible results. It was the No. 1 film in limited release, the No. 3 film in per-screen average, and the No. 8 film overall-despite being seen in only 390 theaters! But more than that, God is using the movie to impact people.

What great news!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RALEIGH, June 16–Lila Rose, president of the pro-life youth organization Live Action, issued the following
statement this morning on North Carolina’s defunding of Planned Parenthood:

“North Carolina is now the fourth state this year to step up to the plate and ensure that no taxpayer dollars go towards funding the biggest abortion business in America, Planned Parenthood. This corrupt organization is responsible for killing over 332,000 defenseless unborn children each year. Planned Parenthood manipulates women to choose abortion and routinely aids and abets the sexual exploitation and trafficking of young girls. Governors of other states should take note of how Gov. Perdue’s legislature has decisively rejected her veto and realize that the American people do not want to subsidize abortionists.”

Indiana, Kansas, and New Jersey have recently passed laws to prevent taxpayer funds from going to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is challenging the Indiana law in federal court, although a federal judge has already denied the abortion business’s request for a temporary injunction.

Over the past four years, Live Action has released undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood clinics across the
country covering up the sexual abuse of children and violating mandatory reporting laws for statutory rape. In February, Live Action released new undercover footage showing 7 Planned Parenthood clinics in 4 states willing to
aid and abet the commercial sex trafficking of underage girls. The videos prompted the House of Representatives to vote twice to defund Planned Parenthood of all federal taxpayer subsidies.

“North Carolina joins Indiana, Kansas, and New Jersey in standing up for the rule of law, human rights, and responsible government,” says Rose. “While we wait for Congress to defund Planned Parenthood at the federal level, responsible state governments should do their part to protect women and unborn children and end local public subsidies of this lawless abortion chain.”

Okay everyone. I just picked up this book (GRAVE INFLUENCE21 Radicals and Their Worldviews that Rule America from the Grave) today and no, I have not finished it yet, so it is not on the Recommended Books page. BUT… I DO HIGHLY recommend this book, that even though I have not finished it, I needed to share it with all of you ASAP–I could not delay another minute, thinking that some of you might want to eagerly read this amazing book in the summer as well.

So here is what I wanted to share with you NOW, being only 50 pages in the book. PLEASE take the time (about 15 minutes) to read each scanned excerpt I attached here for you.

At the university I attend, The Sierra Club has been “talking” to IGNORANT college students about how they want to “stop offshore oil drilling and preserve our resources for our grandchildren… BLAH BLAH & BLAH.” This was in the Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 semesters right after the explosion in the Gulf.

I know of The Sierra Club because I took the time to “talk” with them… OR shall I say… pick this guy’s (a clueless Sierra Club advocate) brain by asking him HARD questions–A LOT of them, actually. For me it was a really fun and exciting “debate round.” Haha. (I won. He had no idea how to answer my Qs or what the answer was… He kept saying, “Uh, I don’t know. That’s a good question. I’ll have to find out.”) When I bid my adeus, he said,

“You ask too many questions.”

(Asking questions make them think.)

LOL. THAT made my day. He was trying to get me signed up as a member–are you joking me? So, just a heads up, they might be coming to your college, if you have not seen them around yet. And they are NOT only about oil and resources… Check the excerpt in the file.

Anyway, in addition to that excerpt, there are about 3-4 scanned pages regarding America and ISRAEL. A MUST READ.

And lastly, the writer of this book says, “…God uses the same template to judge all nations, and that template can be understood by studying what God said would happen to Israel if that nation disobeyed God and rejected His precepts and principles.”

He goes through Deuteronomy 28 starting in verse 24. Explaining God’s template towards Israel that can be self-evident comparisons to America today.

PLEASE READ THESE!!

Open GRAVE_INFLUENCE.ZIP to read the excerpts.

And then the entire book, if they interest you. It is TIME WELL SPENT!!

Do you shop at Old Navy? Do you have friends who do? Well, you might want to reconsider before you $pend your well-earned money there again.

Old Navy has now launched a line of rainbow colored Gay Pride T-Shirts. There are four different designs for men, women, children, and… BABIES!

As I was searching around (I stumbled upon this and in no way support it. It just proves how messed up parenthood (some), and our world, has become. Be warned the following comments come from a site that “believes that parenthood, feminism, and critical thinking can co-exist, and that being cool means not taking yourself (or the world around you) too seriously.” Thanks to sites like this, we have confused people!), I found some pretty shocking comments:

I am OVERJOYED with the sentiment. And thrilled they will be in kid sizes also.

Our 6 year old would rock that shirt and never know she was promoting the gay agenda.

My children will likely be sporting them to school next year!

This is VERY disturbing to me… The rainbow now has a different twist to it. The Biblical idea of the rainbow is not this beautiful reminder of God’s covenant of Noah’s day. Now, the RAINBOW = INDOCTRINATION!

10% of the proceeds will go to It Gets Better Project, an organization/project that “was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.”

Huh? WOW.

As Christians, should we support an agenda like that? I do not think so.

Of the 1,035 Old Navy store in the United States, a select few will supply these shirts–26 stores total.

SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE! BOYCOTT OLD NAVY!!

This was really well said:
