Tina Weber was pleased with the Davis School District's quick reversal on removing "In Our Mothers' House" from the elementary school libraries in response to a lawsuit by the ACLU ("Same-sex parents book back on shelf," Jan. 15).

She is quoted as saying "a small group of people shouldn't be able to impose their personal values on everyone else by taking away access to books they might disagree with."

Which is the smaller group imposing their personal values on the rest: parents who want books about same-gender parenting in elementary school libraries, or parents who would rather not have books about same-gender parenting in elementary school libraries?
