You've heard of K-pop  which  is Korean and relatively harmless,  saffron pop on the other hand is homegrown Indian and deadly to Muslims in a Hindu  India.

I've been expecting this. Taking a cue from recent Florida book bannings,  a petitioner demands that the Bible should be removed from schools due to "inappropriateness, social-emotional learning, mentions of bestiality and rape, and "wokeness" as reasons to ban the Bible. Each reason is accompanied by a corresponding Bible excerpt."

Any bets on how this will go down?

The Bible is not promoting those acts ... it condemns such activity as sinful ... that is a big difference

Yea, some people do have peculiar views of what is sin and the Bible does contain a profusion of them. There is rape genocide bestiality slavery violence, sometimes ok, much sex. [ Come to think of, it's much like cable tv nowadays.]

Would some other book with the below lines  pass muster? Bible gets the pass.  Why is that?

There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses which does sound like it's disapproved,
 
but then there is much approval for O daughter Babylon, you devastator! Happy shall they be who pay you back what you have done to us! Happy shall they be who take your little ones and dash them against the rock!

The Bible records what happens - and in some cases what will happen - that does not mean it is approved - one is expected to take the Bible as a whole and understand it contextually.

Which reminds me, election jostling is in full swing with Republicans lining up to have God on their side and condemning those in league with the Devil.

Candidate for Michigan Secretary of State Kristina Karamo complains about the music corrupting the youth of America.  Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Billie, Eilish, are putting children "under a satanic delusion." and then there is that number which is nothing more than a lesbian orgy. I do have to agree, can't really deny they do put out some satanic vibes, can we?

Curiously, she doesn't mention Lil Nas X and his taking care of the Devil via lap dancing and neck twisting.

Most people don't believe in much of anything.  i.e. political figures.   They want to sound important and be part of the mob.  Politicians just want your vote. 

Joe Biden is a classic example of not believing in much of anything and we have the fool on video to prove it.  On numerous occasions.

The Bible does not hurt anyone and I am in firm belief anything where you have an option then the discussion becomes moot. 

Thus, if you do not believe or believe in the Bible.  Individuals have an easy decision.  Read the book or don't it is truly a personal decision. 

Does it belong in schools?   Considering it is the all time best selling and read book possibly in the history of man.  Maybe it should have a place in schools? 

Yet, we all know why the powers that be are trying to remove the Bible from society not just schools and it is not about content.
