Utah school district removes Bibles from elementary and middle school libraries

A Utah school district removed Bibles from elementary and middle schools following a complaint from a parent claiming the Bible was inappropriate because it contained, "incest, onanism, bestiality, prostitution, genital mutilation, fellatio, dildos, rape, and even infanticide."

The complaint was made following the passage of HB374 in March of 2022 that requires "a local education agency to include parents who are reflective of a school's community" and their complaints involving school materials.

The bill was passed in order to combat "hyper-sexualized" and pornographic material in schools pushed by radical leftists attempting to indoctrinate American children.

The bill's sponsor, Representative Ken Ivory (R), issued a statement on the complaint saying, "The [King James Version] Bible is a challenging read for elementary or middle school children on their own. Traditionally, in America, the Bible is best taught, and best understood, in the home, and around the hearth, as a family."

Ivory believes the bill has done its job and if removing Bibles from schools will also prevent hyper-sexual materials from being in school libraries, American children are safer.

There are dozens of books that have been removed from the district's libraries, and dozens more are under review.
