School District BANS the Bible from Libraries

The Davis County School District in Utah has recently caused controversy after deciding to remove the King James Bible from all elementary and middle school libraries. Despite still being available in high school libraries, this decision has sparked outrage with many feeling that it is a violation of religious freedom.

The removal was prompted by an anonymous complaint made in March of 2022 about the book supposedly containing “sensitive material” as defined by Utah law. A three-person committee was then appointed by the district to investigate the matter and after reviewing they found some snippets of vulgarity and violence which they deemed inappropriate for younger readers. Following this decision 33 additional books have since been taken off library shelves due to similar reasons.

This banning of the Bible has caused much dismay amongst those who saw it as a way to express their faith, especially when parents are no longer able to share its teachings with their children through school reading programs. Those in favour of the ban argue that there is more suitable material available for younger students, however they fail to acknowledge that literature can provide much more than just entertainment but also a sense of culture and history. Censoring a book due to certain controversial elements sends a message that these topics should not be discussed, when in fact being exposed to them can often help people understand difficult issues better.

Furthermore, challengers have already filed an appeal against the decision due to its potential infringement on freedom of religion and expression rights and while classes will not resume until August 17th, it will be interesting how the situation will play out in court or if another agreement will be reached beforehand.

While it is understandable why some passages may be deemed inappropriate for certain age groups, banning any book completely removes important opportunities for learning and personal growth which is why many view this move as restrictive rather than protective and overly cautious.

Likely they were making room for the Koran. Stupidity cannot be fought. Tolerating it can be dangerous,so what is the best move forward.


Mike, great work. I applaud your efforts enormously because I presently make more than $36,000 each month from just one straightforward online company! You may begin creating a steady online income with as little as $29,000, and these are only the most basic internet operations jobs.

They probably don’t have to make room for the koran, because it’s probably already there.

Indeed, very STUPID!!


You can be certain these devil minions are leaving the demonically inspired Mormon Bible, which is an abomination to the God the Creator of All Things.

Revelation 22:18-19
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.


I agree with the principle, but I think the subject matter in this case is overzealous and a bit ridiculous.


Progressives are frightened of Truth and Light.


Mormons don’t believe in thr Bible they only want the “book of morman” to be available.
