Librarians in Fairfax County, Virginia have been accused of mocking the Holy Bible in an ongoing debate over sexually graphic books that were made available to grade school children.
The books, “Gender Queer: A Memoir,” by Maia Kobabe and “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison, were temporarily pulled from Fairfax County Public School libraries after parent complaints and a formal challenge in September. But they’ve since been returned to high school and middle school bookshelves.
The books were prominently featured in a gay-themed Fairfax County Library display that included the Holy Bible.
“It was intentional, it was meant to be offensive,” Stacy Langton, the mom who initially exposed the books, told Fox News. “The timing on this – it’s an intentional dig. It’s a dig on the parents who object to pornography and pedophilia-themed materials in the library, and it’s a dig on Christians as a whole. I think everybody knows where Jesus stands on pedophilia.”

“Lawn Boy” has been the focus of national outrage from parents who say the book promotes pedophilia and is entirely inappropriate for school libraries.
“What if I told you I touched another guy’s dick? What if I told you I sucked it? I was 10 years old but it’s true. I sucked Doug Goebbels’ dick, the real estate guy, and he sucked mine too,” read one portion of the book.
Langton said it was very clear that Fairfax County librarians were sending a message to parents.
“Fairfax County Dolley Madison Library mocks my effort to remove porn in schools and mocks Christianity, “ Langton said in a tweet. “These are your taxpayer dollar, Virginia!”
She said the timing of the display at Dolley Madison Library was an “intentional dig.”
“The Dolley Madison Library holiday reading display was intended to highlight the freedom to read and the fact that many library patrons have more time during the holidays to do so,” said Fairfax County Public Library Director Jessica Hudson in a statement to SMG. “It was not the intention of staff to create a display that could be construed as offensive. The display has been removed.”
