Gay Reversal Advocates Say School Libraries Banning Their ‘Ex-Gay’ Books

Fox News – “Visit most public school libraries and you’ll find an array of books that address the subject of homosexuality. Many include sexually explicit content, and some even include graphic images. But if you’re looking for a book that refers to the possibility that homosexuality can be “reversed,” a Chicago-based group says your best bet is the banned books list.”

Irony.

    why-rony? Books about homosexuality in library collections have passed through some sort of library collections policy- been reviewed in the standard acquisitions sources etc. None of these “ex-gay” books have gone through any sort of legitimate selection process. Libraries are forums for free expression but they’re not Speakers Corner, where every knuckle dragger can demand that their pet partisan ravings must be maintained at the public’s expense.

    They seem to skip right over the fact that libraries only purchase books with the guidance of professional reviews. They skip right over it and head right back into the sexual content aspect of the story.

    Also, most libraries do not put donated books on shelves, they sell them for funds to purchase new books or throw them away. You should only give books to libraries to help them purchase more new materials, not expect them to place it on a shelf. Read your libraries policies, they are there for a reason.

    Many libraries do not purchase books in soft cover format because the get destroyed easily. Add that to the fact that it is not reviewed and it is donated and you have a book that will not be put on the shelf for at least three reasons.

    And at the end of the article they argue science with people who don’t “believe” in science. So that is a lost proposition from the start.
