Keller Independent School District (ISD), just North of Ft. Worth, TX, has instructed the schools in its district to remove 40 “controversial” books from its library shelves amid a “content review,” according to a spreadsheet published by the district.

Keller ISD allows parents and others to issue a “challenge” against library books which causes them to be pulled from the shelves to be reviewed by a committee. According to Dallas Morning News, Jennifer Price, the district’s curriculum director, emailed a copy of the spreadsheet to the principals of the individual schools instructing them to pull the books “by the end of the day” on Tuesday.

Among the list of 42 books were controversial LGBTQ books like Gender Queer, All Boys Aren’t Blue, and Flamer. The Bible was listed right alongside of these other controversial books.

According to the spreadsheet, the parent who issued the challenge against the Bible has withdrawn the challenge. However, according to rules implemented by the school district, any book that was previously challenged regardless of status must be re-reviewed by the committee this year. That will include the Bible.

Essentially, a committee of secular, mostly leftists, will decide whether or not the content being challenged in these school libraries is acceptable or not, including the Bible. Some of the LGBTQ books that have already been challenged include books like I Am Jazz, a book aimed at young children that depict a young boy “transitioning” into a girl. This book, according to the spreadsheet, was voted by a majority in the committee to leave the book on campus.

All Boys Aren’t Blue, a book depicting the life and sexual experiences of a queer black man, was unanimously voted to remain on campus by the committee. “The committee agrees that the author meets his goal and, in doing so, meets the specific needs of some of the students in the district,” the spreadsheet notes read, “It was noted that students who are not represented in the book also have lessons to learn by better understanding of another’s life experiences.”

Yet, the Bible will be reviewed by the same committee that approved these books. Let’s be real, who doesn’t know what’s in the Bible? Even leftists know what’s in it and they are going to read it through the lens of their left-wing activism. We will watch and report whether or not the Keller ISD decides to allow the Bible to stay in its schools’ libraries.
