Publisher's Weekly's Heidi MacDonald, who has been covering the Jessamine County Library League of Extraodinary Gentleman controversy, reports that a heated library board meeting that took place yesterday in which pro-censorship and pro-1st amendment folks faced off. A traveling evangelist held up a copy of the Alan Moore comic book and shouted: "If this is not pornography, what is?"
The library board heard speakers – limited to two minutes each – on both sides of the case, which involves two library workers who felt that LOEG: BLACK DOSSIER should not fall into the hands of an 11-year-old girl and took it upon themselves to remove the book from circulation, thereby violating library policy and getting themselves fired. Although the traveling evangelist, a homeschooling mother and over 200 kids who signed a petition begging for books to be censored all seemed to think that others should decide what they can read, the other half of the speakers felt, as Bobbi Stout, herself the daughter of a preacher, that “It’s dangerous to democracy when an interest group imposes its views on another,” she said. “Stand up for the Constitution.”
Evangelist: If Alan Moore isn’t porno, what is?
