Utah Parent Seeks Ban On “Pornographic” Bible [VIDEO]

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

Frustrated by the books being removed from school libraries, a Utah parent says there’s one that hasn’t been challenged yet, but that they believe should be, for being “one of the most sex-ridden books around.” So they’ve submitted a request for their school district in Davis County to now review the Bible for any inappropriate content.

“Incest, onanism, bestiality, prostitution, genital mutilation, fellatio, dildos, rape, and even infanticide,” the parent wrote in their request, listing topics they found concerning in the religious text. “You’ll no doubt find that the Bible, under Utah Code Ann. § 76-10-1227, has ‘no serious values for minors’ because it’s pornographic by our new definition.”

The Davis School District has an eight-page policy to guide the selection (and removal) of materials across its 92 schools. “It is a process,” district spokesperson Chris Williams told Nexstar’s KTVX. “Anyone who requests a book to be reviewed has to have standing.”

He explained that to have standing, a person must be a student, the parent or guardian of a student, an employee, or a school board member. Students, parents and employees can only request a book review for their prospective school.
