And life went on.
Excellent news. Too bad it took the threat of a lawsuit to make it happen. It
seems a wild stretch of the imagination to argue that merely having a book in
the library's inventory constitutes "advocacy" of the subject
matter. Does stocking "Mother Goose" mean the library advocates living
in shoes or jumping over candlesticks?
Weber of the ACLU said, "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,"So the schools should be able to have
copies of the Book of Mormon and the LDS Primary manual (age appropriate) on the
library shelves and those who disagree should just shut their mouths?
@lost in dc I don't mind as long as all other points of view are
right along side them (not off in another hidden part of the library) including
pagan and atheist view points but somehow I doubt you would really be alright
I love the "..small group of people shouldn't.." Yet that is
exactly how the ACLU works. One or two people or usually a very, very small
minority of people complain, and the ACLU is right on it, defending that small
groups "rights". Too funny.
@joseywalesSo rights are subjective? thats what you imply when you place
them in quotes. No ones rights are being violated by allowing the book, the same
could not be said by not allowing the book, not complicated.
Kalindra,no, go ahead and put out the Koran and teachings of Buddha,
etc.Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is already out there
teaching Greek Gods.
