"Vulgar and violent": A Utah district has yanked the Bible from school libraries
· Jun 4, 2023 · NottheBee.com

Can't exactly say we didn't see this coming:

The 72,000-student Davis School District north of Salt Lake City removed the Bible from its elementary and middle schools while keeping it in high schools after a committee reviewed the scripture in response to a parental complaint.

Not the Bee has actually received an exclusive snapshot of the parent who originally submitted this "complaint"...

It's just the truth, folks. Here's what this concerned citizen wrote:

"Utah Parents United left off one of the most sex-ridden books around: The Bible," the parent's complaint, dated Dec. 11, said. It later went on to add, "You'll no doubt find that the Bible (under state law) has ‘no serious values for minors' because it's pornographic by our new definition."

So incisive! So insightful!

The Bible, of course, is not "pornography." It is God's Word from beginning to end, meant to draw its readers into a salvific and sanctifying relationship with Jesus Christ. Pornography, the commodification of venereal sexuality for money, does precisely the opposite: It corrupts, it destroys, it makes worse, it ruins.

Everyone knows the distinction. The Davis School District is presumably trying to make a point here, but the point falls flat on its merits. For all its successes in the public sphere over the last few decades, the Left continues to be unable to make a coherent point when it really matters. All they have is rage and bad ideas.

Beyond that, however, is the stupid inadequacy of the example itself. Take the Bible out of the school district libraries if you want; good Christian families will still read it at home, preach it, live by it. Nothing changes.

Sorry, not sorry.
