Glenn Beck-affiliated group gets LGBT book banned from school library | San Diego Gay & Lesbian News

And now it commences. In the post-election, anti-Obama hysteria, opposition political groups, led by screeching television personalities and their like-minded media oligarchy now seem emboldened to begin challenging everyone's reading materials. The Glenn Beck group Project 912 was partially, yet "ebulliently" successful in their book challenges, with Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology being removed from a New Jersey high school library's shelves. Ironic how one Project 912's Principles states
"It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion."
Apparently, this also means they can impose their narrow opinions on the intellectual interests of others, as well. How thoughtful of them.
