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?

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 with that.

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.

So 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.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is already out there teaching Greek Gods.
