It seems that his sons were looking through the library for some books about military academies and came across The Whole Lesbian Sex Book which they proceeded to read. Their father now says that the book traumatized his poor children, ages 14 and 16. Hmm...
Adams claimed that God had spoken to him and told him what to say to have the book removed.
And then apparently, the Lord said "Get thee unto a law office and milk ye this for all it's worth."There are so many things wrong with this.
1. Most people are familiar with a thing called the Dewey Decimal system- so it occurs to me that a lesbian sex manual would not be in the same place as books about military academies.
It just seems like they threw the bit about military academies in there, in an attempt to show how God-fearing and America loving they are- but I'm afraid I don't buy it. The boys were probably in the sexuality section, being giggly and pervy as teenaged boys are wont to do.
2. The title kind of speaks for itself, don't you think? If I came across this book in the library, I'd think to myself: "hmm- I am not a lesbian...and I am not in dire need of a sex manual at the moment...not really a fan of "hot girl-on-girl action" and here's the mind-bending part: I would leave the book there.
I picture them standing there flipping the pages and saying "gee, this is so terrible...gee this is so awful...how can I stand looking at this?...wow, lesbians are so evil..." give me a break.
How dare Bentonville remove this book because of one guy's complaint? Don't they know how many people are going to want to read it now?
His suit was thrown out, but as far as I know, they haven't put The Whole Lesbian Sex Book back where it belongs- much to the chagrin of the good Christian boys of Bentonville, Arkansas.
