These three books and others made the American Library Association's 2015 most challenged books list. A 'challenge' is defined as a formal, written complaint submitted by an individual to a school or public library asking that the book be removed from the public library. These books are frequently challenged over sexual content, profanity, violence, and depictions of racism. What reasons (plural) do you think the 'Holy Bible' was challenged for?

Thanks for the reference link! I will check it out.
WOW! Yoleen, I have read that link. Thank you so much. Bit subversive isn't it? Don't let certain people here in HP see it... they might have to make up some more excuses.
Alan - I would LOVE to hear their excuses! Especially about King Saul's first demand on David afterhe killed Goliath, and how Esther became Queen!
I understand various denominations have different versions of the Bible, depending on their emphasis. Catholics traditionally did not allow its congregation to read the Bible. Wonder what they were hiding???
I think they are still hiding the truth to this day. It's suspicious that they have so much wealth. In any crime, aren't we taught to follow the money trail?
I could write a hub on this. Christianity got its 41,000 sectors by quibbling over a bunch of fine points; they're so caught up in it, they miss the Big picture. This makes them easier to take advantage of.
Catholics want to keep the congregation docile, obedient, mindless, & powerless -MORE power for priests to control them via infallible power from the pope whom they believe is God on Earth. The Catholic Church is very strange to say the least.
Super strange. Why all the drama and intrigue? Why do they constantly try to shoot down new theories? Why all the pedophile priests? Why all the hoarding of religious relics? All strange.
FEAR.The Catholic Church is one of the most outmoded religious INSTITUTION.It's abnormal in scope-being afraid of normal human sexual expression & totally against women. It's TWISTED beyond belief!!!
