The library is dangerous!

This is just ridiculous. A group is threatening to “let people know that the library was not a safe place unless it segregated and labeled YA titles with explicit content.”

The claim also demands $120,000 in compensatory damages ($30,000 per plaintiff) for being exposed to the book in a library display, and the resignation of West Bend Mayor Kristine Deiss for “allow[ing] this book to be viewed by the public.”

Who knew books could be so dangerous just sitting in a display? People like this give other Christians a bad name. Read more here.
