Inappropriate In A Pubic Place: Pastors Who Tried To Ban Books In A Banned Book Display Didn't Fare Well So There May be Hope
Belatedly but gratifyingly, a modest victory in grim times: Marking national Banned Books Week, the library in a small mill town in Maine set out a display including several LGBTQ-themed teens' books to support the week's spirit of tolerance and freedom. Uh no, said three local pastors, who wrote demanding the removal of the "immodest" images "promoting homosexuality." After a fiery (for Rumford) public meeting, the library trustees voted unanimously to keep the sinful display. The enlightened consensus in town: "Let other people read what they sodding want to read."
