Questions about a public school library that wants to remove the Bible because of a state law prohibiting “pornographic or indecent material,” what to tell children who ask if art pieces that contain nude figures are inappropriate, and whether it’s inappropriate to pray in the shower or bathroom.


  • What argument should I make against a school library that claims a state law that prohibits “pornographic or indecent material” in public schools should be applied to the Bible because it contains descriptions of incest, prostitution, rape, and infanticide?
  • What should I tell my children when they ask if art pieces that contain nude figures are inappropriate?
  • Is it inappropriate to pray when you’re in the shower or bathroom?
