Confessions of a Book Burner: Reflections on Profanity

by Donna Voetee (AKA Granny Good Food)

(The Best Years in Life) Sylvester Turner, the mayor of Houston, Texas, and I have something in common. We are both book burners.

Mayor Turner banned the movie, Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe, from Worldfest Houston International Film Festival. I was famous, or infamous, depending on your perspective, for burning an award-winning children’s book, The Headless Cupid, by Zilpha Snyder. A New York Times list ranked this book #24 of the 50 most banned books in America. My friends and I in Dr. Robert Simonds’ school watchdog group, Citizens for Excellence in Education, led the charge against it in 1985 to have it removed from Long Beach (Calif.) Unified School District’s libraries.

Now, stop worrying because I did not literally set the book on fire. However, at our showdown encounter at a local, very liberal church, I did give Mrs. Snyder a book of matches (there’s a story for another time of how that came about) with the admonishment that when she came to know who Jesus Christ was, that she would burn her own books. With a large ankh and other occult symbols around her neck, she protested that she “was religious” and that “I attend church regularly.” I did not argue with her, but placed the matches in her hand and walked away. The Press-Telegram and CBS Channel 2 went wild with the story. The media said that her books sold out after I left and that she “had carried the day.” The book went back on school shelves. Concurrently, our kids came out of LBUSD, never to return. That week, we joined the ranks of a new trend called homeschooling, and while she may have made a few pieces of silver, we rescued our children from the influence of people like her and sycophant bureaucracies like LBUSD.

Profanity Assaulting the Soul

Why did I become upset when my 10-year old daughter said the librarian had forced her to watch the Headless Cupid filmstrip, even after she had expressed to her that it made her uneasy? First, because my daughter’s protest against the assault to her conscience went ignored, and second, because The Headless Cupid is profanity.

There are no bad words in this Newbery Honor book, yet it is profane. Not all ‘profanity’ uses cuss words. The word profane means ‘before, or outside, the temple.’ The temple is the body and mind or heart, the abode of the eternal soul; it is not a building. Former witch Johanna Michelson, author of The Beautiful Side of Evil, came to our meetings with LBUSD and testified that this book, indeed, instructed children in the mysteries of the occult; the occult encompasses that which is irreverent towards God or rebellious to His eternal Law. Not only that, but this book’s main character stole, lied, and cheated on schoolwork with impunity. What values were being taught? What was going into my child’s and other children’s temples? Profanity, that which should have remained outside my child’s temple.

Every parent has the duty to protect their innocent children from that which would assault their bodies or minds. I was well within my parental prerogative to call for the censorship of this book.


Profanity Assaulting the Body

Nothing in these modern times is more profane than vaccines. First, a vaccine interferes with the Divinely-inspired immune system, scrambling its miraculous methods of keeping the body healthy and whole, such as white cells and antibodies that line the mucous membranes. I often use the analogy of rattlesnake venom. If one drinks the venom (disgusting, but not lethal), the stomach acid and digestive tract protect the body. If one is bitten, the venom goes directly into the blood and bypasses the natural protections, and the bite may be deadly.

Second, vaccines mix the blood and DNA of animals into our human DNA, violating the principle of separation of the species. Nature works very hard to keep the species separate, and proscriptions against violating that separation should not be taken lightly. Ancient manuscripts attest to the mixing of the species as being the trigger for the Deluge, which every major people group records, in some version or other, in their oldest histories.

Third, and most egregiously profane of all, many vaccines contain human DNA from aborted fetuses, violating the prohibition against cannibalism. Dr. Theresa Deisher, a vaccine manufacturer who holds the unique claim of being a pro-life biotech company, claims that the incorporation of human cells (“morally illicit tissue”) into vaccines is the smoking gun in the rise of autism:

Have we created the perfect storm for DNA breaks, mutations, and regressive autism in our children? In 1979 we started injecting our children with vaccines that are contaminated with human fetal DNA fragments and a retrovirus, and autism began to rise. Then we added more jabs with aborted fetal vaccines and thimerosal, which can also cause DNA breaks, to vaccines in 1988, and autism rose more. Then in 1995, we added much more aborted fetal DNA contaminants to the chickenpox vaccine, and autism really rose.”

Vaccines are profane, and are to be kept outside the temple.

Profanity and Collusion

Supposedly Mayor Turner was concerned that the film Vaxxed would reduce the numbers of vaccinated children in Houston. How he came to that conclusion is a mystery, since he declined offers from the producers to have a private screening. His office made some “threatening” phone calls to the festival’s promoters, and Vaxxed was pulled.

Obstructing the public’s right to knowledge about their children’s health, or to learn about information that whistleblowers have risked their lives and careers for, is a stench in the nostrils of honest folks. Mayor Turner had no moral standing to censor the movie. But as is common in life, follow the money.

The City of Houston, like every other American city, is a corporatocracy, run by public-private partnerships whose reason for existence is to take tax dollars and redistribute them to favorite sons. Oh, how proud Marx would be to see this day! Travelers who spent the night in Houston hotels were plundered for $86,000,000 (that’s Million, for you Common Core grads) in Hotel Occupancy Taxes last year, down from $92,000,000 in 2014. In 2015-16, the Houston Arts Alliance distributed $4,022,284 of that pie to groups like the film festival that got owned here. At their website, the HAA doesn’t even blush when it boasts, “Houston Arts Alliance leverages primarily City of Houston funds with other government resources….” “Leverages”? I suppose Bonnie and Clyde ‘leveraged’ their loot, too.

Here’s something that the City of Houston and the Worldfest Houston International Film Festival may not have considered before. First, that the purpose of government is not to operate as gangs in committing legal plunder, but to secure the rights of all who want to use their own extra income to support film festivals. That bears repeating: their OWN extra income. Not. Tax. Dollars.

And for the takers, if you didn’t belly up to the socialist sows and jockey for position at the city teat, you could show what you want at your festival and tell the censors to jump off the JPMorgan Chase Tower. But the City keeps on plundering and the takers keep on taking. Shame on all! Someone should make a movie about it.

My tax dollars paid for the copies of The Headless Cupid that went on the shelves at LBUSD. Tax dollars – from pro-vaxxers and anti-vaxxers alike -- paid for the Worldfest Houston International Film Festival. This being close to the Ides of April, I might as well drop this on you: Tax Dollars Are Sacred. How so? Taxes are paid by people who work “by the sweat of their brow”. Where does sweat come from? The blood. As we have seen with vaccines, the blood is sacred. With onerous taxation, people literally are worked to death: physiologically, their cortisol goes up with the extra stress causing a host of health problems. Cortisol breaks down muscle tissue, reducing physical strength and increasing vulnerability to infections. With prolonged adrenal fatigue, insomnia, inflammation, and early death are inevitable. This is the abomination of socialism, the irreverence for God’s law that is the epitome of profanity: it brings bloodguilt onto the societies that practice it.

How do we rid ourselves of this madness? The end of profanity and the restoration of goodness begins with the Separation of School and State, Separation of Medicine and State, and Separation of Arts and State. It can’t happen soon enough for this Book Burner.
