Show-Me Jail For Missouri Librarians

A glimpse of draconian proposals from Jeff City that offer a glimpse at the attitudes of the SUPER-MAJORITY toward reading material that might challenge the status quo . . . Checkit:

Missouri bill proposes 'parental library review boards' that could land librarians in jail

A new bill proposed in Missouri aims to prevent inappropriate sexual content from getting into the hands of kids, but critics are warning it amounts to censoring and could land public librarians in jail. The bill was introduced earlier this month by Missouri state Rep.

We want details - would these "Parental Review Boards" burn the books they disapprove of locally, or would they be shipped to Jefferson City for a Quarterly Ceremonial "Thought Cleansing"?

Isn't that what Communists like Ocascio Cortez would like to do.

This is something Missouri has needed for a long time. Any book that has anything to do with homosexuals or homosexuality needs to be removed from every library.

From the book 1984..."Thought crime does not entail death, thought crime is death."

Wow you must really hate Jesus. Jesus was well aware of homosexuality but never spewed bigotry like you do.

Homosexuality is an abomination and has no place in our libraries.

Are homosexuals actually having sex in our libraries? Inquiring minds want to know where, when, and what to wear!

Prohibiting the use of or censoring any given item increases demand. It's the first story in the Bible.

I wonder what the pages of a book tastes like when the savages tear them out and start chewing on them.
