The Davis County School District in Utah is considering a request to ban the Holy Bible from its campuses after a parent complained about the content of the religious text.
The parent, who is known to be far-left, claimed that the Bible is “one of the most sex-ridden books around” and contains material on incest, bestiality, prostitution, and rape, among other things. The parent also cited a Utah law that orders all books with “pornographic or indecent” content to be removed from schools.
This complaint has sparked controversy and anger from religious groups, who claim that the Bible is a sacred text and should be allowed in schools. Some have even accused the parent of being part of a political stunt designed to mock the law.
The Davis County School District has yet to make a decision on the request and is currently reviewing it. However, this incident has reignited the debate on the role of religion in public schools and whether or not certain texts should be allowed.
