    Utah School District Pulls Dozens of Books Including Gender Queer, Two Boys Kissing

    Utah’s largest school district has removed 52 books from its library for alleged inappropriate content and plans to investigate another 32, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

    Alpine School District in northern Utah County is removing the books following an internal audit sparked by parental complaints, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. The school board will formally inspect the first 52 books after drafting guidance on how to do so and then will inspect the other 32.

    Removing books from a public school library as inappropriate hardly constitutes a book burning.

        Didn't we have a thread about conservatives talking about burning books only to be provided with examples of liberal professors, librarians and school boards actually burning them by the hundreds?

          I believe that was another H_A thread....or at least one she was active in (probably derailing)

          EDIT:
          Ah, her it is.

            You are trying to get me to fess up that I know exactly which thread it is as well as who dumped those examples of liberal professors, school boards and librarians burning books, aren't you?

              It was the thread where her 'good faith' effort of attempting to intuit a definition of the word opinion was to copy and paste the definition of the 3 from her google search and say "pick one".

              (I.E. I said "I'm certain we can agree that censorship of opinions you don't like is unenlightened." and she (obvioulsy) thought that I could have meant judicial decisions as one of the possible likely interpretations of "opinion" in that context.)
