God’s Word could soon be banned from public schools in Gardner, Kansas.
Two students filed a formal complaint saying the Bible is inappropriate and should not be on the shelves of public school libraries.
“No one should get to get to cherry pick based on their own ideologies of which books belong in schools,” student Elizabeth Fiedler told Fox 4 News. “Some things shouldn’t have a place in the school.”
It’s unclear whether or not the kids were actually serious or whether they were making a point about pro-gay books that had already been banned.
Nevertheless, the school district is taking the matter seriously. The superintendent said the board will consider banning the Bible later this fall.
One board member defended God’s Word – saying it was a matter of religious liberty.
“Because of my extensive personal research on the 52 books that compile the Holy Bible, the fact that it is accurate scientifically, historically, provides hope and help for anyone who seeks from it, and is the inerrant word of the Creator God, I will not be voting to have it removed,” board member Greg Chapman told the television station.
Did you ever imagine you would live in a nation where how-to books promoting gay sex would be permissible in a school library but Dr. Seuss, Little House on the Prairie and Almighty God would be banned>
