Utah district bans Bible in elementary and middle schools 'due to vulgarity or violence'

In the Bible, Jesus says “Let the children come to me” — but parents and teachers in Utah have decided it’ll have to wait until high school.

At Davis School District, located north of Salt Lake City, the collection of Christian scripture has been shelved for students until they enter high school.

The district has removed the Bible from their elementary and middle school libraries after receiving a petition to ban the holy book due to its descriptions of sex and violence.

The petition of the parent requesting review of the Bible was made available in March 2022 with the parent’s name and address withheld. 

In the petition, the anonymous parent seems to mock Utah Parents United, a conservative parents coalition that sought to remove inappropriately sexual books from school libraries.

“Get this PORN out of our schools,” the parent wrote along with an eight-page listing of “offensive” Bible passages. “If the books that have been banned so far are any indication for way lesser offenses, this should be a slam dunk.”

The school district itself did not explain its reasoning for banning the Bible, nor did it cite which verses were the deciding factor in its removal.
