Arkansas Parents Uncover Volumes of Vile Literature in School Libraries
(AgapePress) - An Arkansas mother who succeeded in getting three sexually explicit books removed from Fayetteville school libraries says she has found there are more than a hundred books of that nature in the school district. Now a mental health counselor is recommending a parental audit of all the books in the city's school libraries.
According to a search conducted by Fayetteville mom Laurie Taylor, out of 502 books listed under "sex" in the city's middle, junior high, and high school libraries, there are 66 books on sex instruction, and 32 of those are on child sex instruction. Another 75 of the books deal with homosexuality, 23 fall under the category of lesbian fiction, 16 are on rape, 9 on incest, and there are even some books on bestiality.
Is it time to check your local school libraries book selection? I think so. Parents have a moral obligation to supervise, protect, and control their children's environment, but for 5 days a week, 3/4 of the year we let the government have control of what our children are exposed to.
We already know the schools agenda when it comes to things like abortion, abstinence and homosexuality. Do we allow the school to put those values on our children?
Another book to which Throckmorton took especial offense was Rainbow Boys by Alex Sanchez, which features a threesome of boys who believe they are homosexuals. "One of them has unprotected sex with an adult that he met through a Gay-Straight Alliance [club]," the mental health counselor says. And these kinds of books, he points out, "are touted as being recommended books by groups like the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network, or GLSEN. And they're in these libraries. I don't understand what educational purpose [books like] this could possibly have to be in a school library."
Gay groups such as GLSEN are ripe for abuse. Warning flags should go up any time adults want to get together with minor children to talk about sex. But because of "diversity" the schools not only allow it, they encourage it.
