Imagine walking into your local library, planning to read a
theologian such as Reinhold Niebuhr or Karl Barth, or a popular
inspirational work, such as Rick Warren’s “Purpose-Driven Life”
or Harold Kushner’s “When Bad Things Happen to Good People”.
Or wanting to read the Koran. Or just to see a copy of the Bible…
But instead of finding such important and popular titles, you
discover that the religion section had been decimated – stripped
of any book that did not appear on a government-approved list.
That’s exactly what’s happening right now to inmates in federal
prisons under a Bush administration policy. As _The New York
Times_ put it, “chaplains have been quietly carrying out a
systematic purge of religious books and materials that were once
available to prisoners in chapel libraries.”
I’ve just sent a message to the Federal Bureau of Prisons
protesting this absurd policy. Will you join me?

You know, if we don’t stop all this bizarre behaviour now, it is only going to get worse.
SPEAK OUT! Even if your voice shakes…cuz I’ll be right there with you!
