A North Carolina mother says her son’s school is refusing books supportive of her pagan beliefs after last month offering Bibles.
Apparently Bibles had been handed out earlier by the Gideons.
This link has a fuller story.
Is there a line to be drawn? Do we take one set of sacred texts and not the other? Should there be a difference for religious texts taken at the three school levels?
Having just worked on a collection development policy, I know that we want to make sure that books in the library are as fact based as possible. Is a Bible “Christian propoganda” as stated in the second link? I’ve never thought of the Bible as propoganda. Chick Tracts? yes. Bible? no.
Wishing there was a list of the books she wanted to donate.
