ACLU sues to force elementary libraries to display lesbian advocacy book
The ACLU has filed a lawsuit to force a Utah school district to keep a lesbian advocacy book on elementary school library shelves.
In the Davis School District in Utah, children as young as kindergarten age can check out a homosexual propaganda book called In My Mothers' House, about three adopted kids and their lesbian "mothers," if their parents sign a permission slip.
The book was removed from shelves after another Windridge mother complained to school officials when her kindergartner brought it home. It is presently kept behind the counter.
This minor obstacle motivated the ACLU to seeking to force the school district to put the book back on its library shelves, making it available to all children without restriction.
The only person participating in the "class action" lawsuit is Tina Weber, whose children are enrolled at Windridge Elementary School in the district, the school at the center of the controversy over the book.
In Our Mothers' House was added to libraries in five of the district's 50 elementary schools after administrators learned that a Windridge Elementary student was being raised by lesbians.........
Davis School District spokesperson Chris Williams told Reuters that the district stands behind its decision to require students to have parental permission to check out the book.
"We still feel very comfortable with the process we followed, which is laid out in district policy," Williams said. "We still believe that at no time did we take parents out of the driver's seat."
