A Story from NC that has several people calling library materials \"pornographic\"
\"Six of eight speakers asked for some materials to be stored in areas off-limits to children, and for filters on computers to limit access to obscene information. The other two speakers asked the committee to look into extending children’s summer programs and to consider building a library somewhere on or near Murchison Road.\"\"“On Holy Thursday, let’s consider wisely what we are doing,” Barton said\"Long, the administrator at First United Pentecostal Church, handed the committee a stack of papers. He said the 2,100 signatures were from people who want controls on what children can see at the library.
“I’m here to ask: When are the libraries going to come on board?” Long said.
Billy Strickland, a Republican candidate for the Board of Commissioners, told the committee it should place filters on computers in the library.
“When are we going to stop this?” Strickland said. “Are we going to have pedophiles in here, molesting our children?”
