Pink News reports that in one small town in rural Maine, the community has taken a stand against a rabble rousing trio of local religious fundamentalists who wanted to censor a library display, ironically about books that neo-conservatives always moan about. The local Library Service was marking a week of commemorations of books which are frequently vandalised or stolen by various thieves, and it seems that many of the titles are LGBT or BME in content. A petitioning letter was started by local hate groups that wanted to stop the commemorations. But in a packed meeting, attended by many of the local residents, the library staff gave an explanation of why book censorship by the right wing was a dangerous precedent in any democracy. The trustees of the library targeted by the anti-gay petition then voted overwhelmingly to continue with the display and the week of commemorations for the LGBT and other minority books.
