FARMINGTON, UT, November 15, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) The ACLU has filed a lawsuit to force a Utah school district to keep a lesbian advocacy book on elementary school library shelves.
In the Davis School District in Utah, children as young as kindergarten age can check out a homosexual propaganda book called In My Mothers House, about three adopted kids and their lesbian mothers,” if their parents sign a permission slip.
The book was removed from shelves after another Windridge mother complained to school officials when her kindergartner brought it home. It is presently kept behind the counter.
This minor obstacle motivated the ACLU to seeking to force the school district to put the book back on its library shelves, making it available to all children without restriction.
The only person participating in the “class action” lawsuit is Tina Weber, whose children are enrolled at Windridge Elementary School in the district, the school at the center of the controversy over the book.
In Our Mothers House was added to libraries in five of the districts 50 elementary schools after administrators learned that a Windridge Elementary student was being raised by lesbians.
After a kindergarten student brought it home, a group of concerned parents brought a petition to the school asking that the book be removed.
A seven-member parent-teacher committee decided that the book would remain in library collections, but should be kept behind the counter instead of on the shelves. They said the book did not comply with state law barring homosexual advocacy in school curriculum.
The legal director for the ACLU’s Utah chapter told Reuters that Weber read the story together with her 6-year-old daughter.
Tina Weber said in a statement that, while other parents have the right to limit what their children read, they should not have any influence over what library books are available to others.
I don’t believe it’s for anybody else to tell me how to raise my family, Weber said. I would just hope to see the book get back on the shelf so all children have access to it.”
Davis School District spokesperson Chris Williams told Reuters that the district stands behind its decision to require students to have parental permission to check out the book.
We still feel very comfortable with the process we followed, which is laid out in district policy,” Williams said. We still believe that at no time did we take parents out of the driver’s seat.

“All we want to do is be free to come out of the closet and live our lives in peace. Why do you fear this so much? You have nothing to fear. It’s not like we’re going to come after your children...”
Some one should sue the ACLU and the author of the book on the grounds that this book is racist since it has two WHITE mothers and a black child.
Why does it have to be two white women?
bunch of perverts
How is crap like that allowed?
expel the kids of the suing mom”s”
fight it like they would
Someone remind me..........who the f*** REALLY is the ACLU, why should anyone give a damn about this organization from Hell itself, and why do so many fear them?
Time to tell......well, whoever the hell they are.......to kiss our collective asses. Dead serious.
When the government runs an institution, *everything* is a political issue. Fully privatize education.
(well, not that book - but the book the article is about)
America has been stolen from the "steal this book" mentality - steal it back.
These stories make me wonder if we can ever get our country back. It is so evil to promote this unnatural and unhealthy life style to our children. I am very sorry for people who are born with sexual identity problems and consider it a birth defect like many that require adjustments and sacrifices to get through life. Choosing a celibate life would be the obvious choice. It is certainly not optimal but neither is getting around without legs or writing without arms. Choosing to indulge deviant desires leads to psychological and physical illness. To bring children into the deviancy is just evil and selfish. Homosexuals, as well as heterosexuals, should keep their sex lives in the closet, or at least the bedroom, and out of the newspapers. It’s very depressing to read about our society approaching the deviancy rate of Sodom.
lesbians use Social engineering to convince confused young girls into thinking they are also lesbians
I would very strongly encourage my kids to shun any child of a homosexual activist, and I would do the same with the parent. I do not want to be sued over some absurd cause for offense, and the safest path is a complete absence of interaction.
And it would be ok per rules - provided that the girls’ being at school represents a significant impediment to the learning of others... ie they’re a distraction.
Keep on kicking them out until they give up and leave.
And everyone lived happily and blue state lesbianishly ever after.
(Except for the evil conservatives who didn’t get with the program and were sent to reeducation camps staffed by lesbian members of the ACLU. They got what was coming to them. And more.)
I mean EVERY stereotype is featured. The two short haired lesbians, one obese, wearing a man's shirt, the requisite "diversity" of the kids. The overall mediocrity.
If I didn't know better, I'd guess that the author HATES lesbians, and wanted to mock them.
The only thing missing is a chain wallet in the back pocket of one of the "moms".
Lesbians - They ain't like in the movies.
As a lesbian, I find this offensive. Not all lesbians are self hating, wanna be men, fat, short haired, flannel shirt giant belt buckle wearing, wanna shove in your and your childrens face, wish they had a penis, dyke.
Homosexuals (BOTH sexes) recruit, recruit, recruit! When kids just want to be kids, the perverts are convincing them they want to be perverts.
1. Place book on shelf.
2. When no one is looking, have some remove the book, bring it to an appropriate place, take a bodacious Obama on it, then burn it.
3. If ACLU objects, tell them to hire someone to watch the book at all times.
4. When The ACLU Obamahole has to take a bodacious Obama and goes to the Obamaroom, go to step 2.
