Pastor Calls Public Library Books In Children’s Section ‘Absolute Straight-up Pornography’

FILE - Amanda Darrow, director of youth, family and education programs at the Utah Pride Center, poses with books, including "The Bluest Eye," by Toni Morrison, that have been the subject of complaints from parents, on Dec. 16, 2021, in Salt Lake City. Publisher Penguin Random House and PEN America sued a Florida school district Wednesday, May 17, 2023, over its removal of books about race and LGBTQ+ identities, the latest opposition to a policy central to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ agenda as he prepares to run for president. Among the removed books are “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky, “The Nowhere Girls” by Amy Reed and “Lucky” by Alice Sebold.

  • A Tuscola County, Michigan, pastor is sounding the alarm over what he calls graphic books filled with erotica in the children’s section of the Caro Area District Library.
  • James Brandt is the pastor at Living Waters Chapel in Caro.
  • He told Michigan News Source two of the three books are available in the children’s section while one is marketed to teens.
  • “What struck me is the explicit content in those books,” Brandt said. “It is absolute straight-up porn and perversion. These books discuss anal sex, kinks, and fetishes.”
