Must schools ban 'gateway' books, too?
"There have been few challenges in Tennessee school districts recently. Apparently, our schools have been doing yeoman’s work in pre-screening their assigned reading, weeding out any book that might challenge the narrow definitions of good taste, and avoiding the expensive and unseemly task of removing a title from class.

But the Sumner County action does raise an interesting question in light of Tennessee’s new mandate on sex conversation in schools. The legislature has said the only approved approach to sex is that only married men and women should have it; so, what to do about these books in school libraries?"

When will someone challenge Bibles in classrooms?

"The legislature has said the only approved approach to sex is that only married men and women should have it..." The Old Testament if full of accounts of men and women having gateway sex outside of marriage. King David, anyone? When is someone going to challenge the presence of Holy Writ in school libraries?

That's different. The Bible

That's different. The Bible is the word of God. And if God told you to sleep with your sister or a brother's wife or a cow, you damn well slept with them.

Oh I'm always waiting for someone to do that.

If you look at the things in the bible it includes bestiality, incest, murder, rape alsorts.
Why is that ok! ;)

Can't have one rule for everyone apart from 'religious books'.
