If I may, a public library is for the public - ALL of the public. Anything else is censorship. Public librarians collect books in all areas, some of which probably express opinions that may strike them as repugnant. No one is saying that those pastors have to read the books they disagree with - heaven forbid, their minds should be opened!

I'd also like to say Bravo! Don't back down from the bullies! The library is a place where ALL should feel welcomed and accepted. I'd say more but I don't want to get in trouble for expressing my opinion on town time lol.
