California School Purges Christian Content from Library

From Todd Starnes at Charisma News:

It was nothing short of a Christian purging.

“She was told by one of the library attendants that the library has been instructed to remove all books with a Christian message, authored by Christians, or published by a Christian publishing company,” read a letter PJI sent to the charter school…
