They’re ‘BANNING’ the Holy Bible?    Daily Hornet |

Hitler banned Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front because it was insulting to the German armed forces.
The USSR and other communist powers banned Orwell’s Animal Farm – and not just because it featured talking pigs.
In 1931, China’s censor General Ho Chien banned Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland because it was just too dangerous for children to believe animals and humans could communicate with one another.
See where I’m going with this?
It’s dangerous. And it suppresses ideas. In fact, there’s good argument to be made that there is nothing more inherently un-American than the censorship of thoughts and ideas.
But apparently not everyone in the U.S. got the memo…
We here at the Daily Hornet were shocked – and frankly, pretty mad – to learn that for the first time in years, the Bible is being banned…or “challenged,” as our Liberal buddies call it…in schools across the U.S.
This isn’t a secondhand report or watercooler gossip. The data comes directly from the American Library Association. , according to their 2015 report, is in sixth place on the top 10 most “challenged” books.
In other words, children are being denied access to the word of God.
Why? Simply because it expresses a religious viewpoint.
Forget the fact that it teaches life lessons about core values, morality, and relationships… Apparently, that means nothing.
And we wonder why public schools are failing? For that matter, we wonder why America’s morals are in the gutter and our nation, by and large, is falling behind?
We’re not saying teach bible studies in public schools or libraries (though, to be honest, it’d do a LOT of good)… But who in their right mind would keep the Holy Bible out of open hands?
