Burn Baby Be-bop, burn!
As far as the Milwaukee-based Christian Civil Liberties Union (CCLU) is concerned, it’s time for a good, old-fashioned book burnin’ in nearby West Bend, Wis. Since February, the city has been torn by controversy as some residents press officials to move certain books depicting sex and homosexuality from the section of the public library aimed at children aged 12 to 18 to the adult section, with labels marking the books as sexually explicit, according to CNN.com. The CCLU, comprised primarily of four elderly men, stepped into a fray with a lawsuit demanding that one of the books, “Baby Be-bop” – a fictional story of a homosexual teenager – be burned in public. “I don’t sit on the fence when I do these things,” CCLU member Robert Braun, 74, told CNN. “When I make a decision to speak up on something, I go for it.”
