No it doesn't. Respect means letting other have their believes not accepting them

Respect means accepting others' beliefs.
It is a book and it is part of the culture

also. when I was originally looking for sources I came across one that said that they believed that many of these complaints were more about annoying religious people than actually about banning the Bible. for example a religious person lodges a complaint about something like To Kill a Mockingbird. in response, non religious people lodge a complaint about the Bible. so many of these complaints are really just retaliatory.

i understand what you meant now. I'll rephrase. the Bible shouldn't be banned as long as it is given equal standing to other "holy" books. as long as the Bible is available as a resource i have no problem with a child reading it if they want to. I object if staff attempt to convince children to read it or convince them that it is true. that is not their job.

It shouldn't be. There should be a freedom for anyone to read what they like. Now, I don't think public schools should force people to read it, but it should be avaliable to anyone who wants to.

Oh wait, I see where you got that from. This was a debate about banning a bible from being in libraries. It never was to inform people that it was banned from libraries. Because it is not. When a person said, I was unaware it was. I said "there is an effort" I see the confusion. Why do you think it should be banned from public school libraries?

Groups want the bible banned from libraries. Why else would they complain for it being in libraries? Also, I never said it was banned from libraries. I only said there is an effort to ban it from libraries, and I still stand by that statement.

that website doesn't say that the Bible has been banned anywhere. it only says that the Bible received alot of complaints. that doesn't mean that any group is seriously consider banning the Bible.

could you provide a source for that. all I can find is that it gets banned in school libraries which makes total sense. a public library is a different story.
