Presentation Transcript

“I feel like I am constantly on the defensive.” opinion except for Christians.”

“I have struggled with the same issues, not knowing whether I could speak up in such a way as to be heard on my concerns…”

“I thought I’d never see the day that they (American Libraries) would post a View from the Right.”

“My prayers are with you as you continue to be a strong voice for the conservative viewpoint and for fostering a balanced perspective in the library world.”

“So many times I hear insulting remarks against “anyone” who does not agree with ALA, the feminist agenda or the Democratic agenda.”

“As a “born-againer” in Massachusetts it gets wearying to have most of the libraries staffed with liberals.”

“It is nice to know that there are others who feel as I do about the liberal tendencies of at least the majority of vocal librarians – not to mention someone who is honest enough to admit that it is impossible to separate personal and religions values from professional life.”

“In this year of election, it has been hard not to get caught up in all the political rhetoric and I think I’ve forgotten why I became a librarian. Thank you for reminding me.”

“I too am conservative and a born-again Christian and (gasp) a Republican. I know I am in the minority in this field that I have chosen.”

“The assumption that I do not hold “intellectual freedom” in high esteem just because I am conservative is one that I wish I could dispel. You articulately and intelligently made “the view from the right” look like we might just be reasonable people.”

“I think ALA should focus their attention on the plight of librarianship in our country, and less on promoting a political agenda!”

“As a conservative Christian and a new librarian I often feel like I am the only Republican conservative librarian.”

“I am attending library school and too often I find myself the lone conservative in my classes and at work. I was beginning to wonder if anyone else in my position existed.”

“I believe in intellectual freedom whole-heartedly… I am trying to be the best librarian that I can, but I also want to be the person God wants me to be in all that I do.”

“Thank you for taking such a strong stand for Christ in such a non-Christian profession and publication.”

“Christianity is to infiltrate all areas of our lives and is not to be something we just put on for Sunday morning. It is past time our profession gives us a “fair” hearing but whether it ever does or not, our responsibility is to at least speak up.”

“… Liberal Democrats don’t have a corner on providing good, balanced, caring library service.”
