NJ school bans book on gays
MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. - May 5, 2010 -- A school board has removed a book on gay youth from a school library in New Jersey, but the state's largest gay rights group isn't complaining.
In March, a group of citizens asked for three books about gays to be removed from the Rancocas Valley High School library.
School officials formed a study committee and ultimately decided to keep two of the books.
But they voted to remove "Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology," which includes graphic language and an etching of Boy Scouts watching two men have sex.
The school board unanimously approved the action Tuesday.
Steven Goldstein, chairman of the gay rights group Garden State Equality, says he doesn't have a problem with removing a book over graphic content.
