A school district in Utah is considering banning the Holy Bible from its campuses after receiving complaints from a far-Left parent.
A parent submitted a request to the Davis County School District to review the Holy Bible, claiming it is “one of the most sex-ridden books around,” The Salt Lake Tribune reported.
“Incest, onanism, bestiality, prostitution, genital mutilation, fellatio, dildos, rape, and even infanticide,” the parent complained are within the contents of the Holy Bible.
The parent was as far as claiming the Holy Bible has “no serious values for minors.”
“You’ll no doubt find that the Bible, under Utah Code Ann. § 76-10-1227, has ‘no serious values for minors’ because it’s pornographic by our new definition.”
The parent cited a code from a law passed in Utah in 2022 that orders all books with “pornographic or indecent” content to be removed from Utah schools’ classrooms and libraries.
The parent also took a shot at a conservative parent group that works to remove sexually-explicit books from Utah libraries, calling “Utah Parents United” a “white supremacist hate group.”
“Ceding our children’s education, First Amendment Rights, and library access to a white supremacist hate group like Utah Parents United seems like a wonderful idea,” the parent wrote sarcastically.
“Get this PORN out of our schools. If the books that have been banned so far are any indication for way lesser offenses, this should be a slam dunk,” the furious parent activist concluded.
A spokesperson from the Davis County School District said the district’s committee has to review all requests. “We don’t differentiate between one request and another. We see that as the work that we do,” Christopher Williams said.
“We don’t jump to conclusions, we go through the entire process. We don’t blow off one request because we think it’s silly,” he told ABC4.
The parent’s request about the Bible was submitted on Dec. 11. Williams said the review process typically takes 60 days but the committee has been barraged with troves of book review requests.
Republican Utah State Rep. Ken Ivory ridiculed the parent’s request as an antic “that drains school resources.”
“There was a purpose to the bill and this kind of stuff, it’s very unfortunate. There are any number of studies that directly link sexualization and hyper-sexualization with sexual exploitation and abuse. Certainly, those are things we don’t want in schools,” Rep. Ivory said.
The state rep. suggested the parent’s complaint is a mere political stunt designed to mock the law.
