    HOLY BIBLE ON LIST OF 'CHALLENGED' BOOKS AT LIBRARIES

    NEW YORK (AP) -- On the latest list of books most objected to at public schools and libraries, one title has been targeted nationwide, at times for the sex and violence it contains, but mostly for the legal issues it raises.
    The Bible.


    "You have people who feel that if a school library buys a copy of the Bible, it's a violation of church and state," says James LaRue, who directs the Office for Intellectual Freedom for the American Library Association, which released its annual 10 top snapshot of "challenged" books on Monday, part of the association's "State of Libraries Report" for 2016.

    I am not surprised by this. I grew up in Los Angeles and I have to say I don't remember ever seeing a bible on the school library shelves. I think it is up to the parents to provide that book, not the schools. Send your kids to private school, take them to church, home school them if you want them to learn about God.

    As far as public libraries, well it is all about being politically correct.

    This Country was founded by people wanting to Worship God then they throw God out of schools and eventually off of money and the pledge....that they no longer do at school...pathetic
