All over the country, parents have seen grotesque, sexually explicit books for children in recent years. A member of the Rapides Parish Control Board proposed an amendment to keep books of this genre out of the children's section and placed into its own.
They are not being banned.
"LGBTQ+" identity stands for "lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer". ALL of these are sexual proclivities and children have NO BUSINESS being introduced to sexual proclivities. If these sorts of books are allowed in the children's section, you will see books of an explicit nature along with it. You cannot separate the non-explicit from the explicit. They always go together as the very identity involves sexual behavior.
The local media has magnified the voices of the individuals who want children to access sexually explicit material in a public venue. Naturally, this makes one wonder why the media wants to amplify the voices of those who want to introduce sexual material to children, because again, everything about the identity is wrapped up in sexual proclivity and behavior.
We ask you to support the Amendment to keep books of this nature out of the children's section.
