Good News! Idaho: Library Board Votes to Protect Children From Porn

Editor’s note: The subject material in the following story will be objectionable to some people

Two books with graphic, leave-nothing-to-the-imagination sexual illustrations will not be allowed back on the general circulation shelves in the Nampa Library.

“The New Joy of Sex” and “The Joy of Gay Sex” were made permanently inaccessible to minors on a 3-2 vote yesterday by the Nampa Library Board. “The Joy of Gay Sex” is particularly objectionable, showing in vivid and realistic detail virtually every conceivable way of engaging in homosexual sex, and which includes an entire chapter on “Daddy-Son Sex Fantasies” to book.

The controversy began over two years ago when a 15-year-old stumbled across the “Joy of Gay Sex” on a table in the middle of the library where any child could find it.

Kudos to activist husband and father Randy Jackson, who launched the effort to remove this smut from general circulation in 2005. His efforts show what an engaged citizen can accomplish through cheerful persistence. And kudos to Mayor Tom Dale, who appointed family-friendly members to the Board to replace members who insisted that gay porn remain accessible to young children.

Apparently Idahoans still have a remnant of leaders possessing some common sense and decency. Wish we could say the same for Chicago area schools in Deerfield and District 214...
