Libraries Ban Bible-Based Children’s Book

“Actor Kirk Cameron spoke out Wednesday following more than 50 libraries allegedly rejecting his attempts to visit and read his new faith-based book, while many have had no problem hosting drag queen story hours for children. The ‘Growing Pains’ star said a library in Alameda County, Calif., rejected a solicitation while instead continuing to schedule what he characterized as a ‘gender name-change clinic’ later in the week. ‘I’m thinking, wow, if we’re so committed to diversity, why am I being excluded? Why can’t I use your facility to read my book? You’re a library.’ He said a Providence, R.I., library rejected another offer, with a worker telling publisher Brave Books they are a ‘very queer-friendly library; our messaging does not align.’ ‘My understanding of history is that the family and the church are two great pillars of Western civilization,’ Cameron said. ‘And those two things need to be removed and taken out of the way in order to fundamentally change the power structure and the moral value code of the nation.’ However, the actor added that since the news broke of his dozens of rejections, parents and other librarians are contacting him or his publisher to solicit appearances to read his book.”
