censorship.

http://www.quillandquire.com/blog/index.php/2007/11/22/the-golden-compass-banned-by-catholic-school-board/

ok, so in reading the comments posted in reaction to the news on this site, one can see that the book wasn`t banned.

it was removed from the shelves and placed behind the desk of the librarian where one only had to ask for the title by name and it would be provided......with a smile.

not censorship then.

good.

i`m relieved.

my children could, with full confidence, approach the librarian and request the aforementioned title, and recieve it with approval.

subtle.

Apparenty the book was removed based on the policy that if there is a complaint, the title must be taken off the shelf until a review is undertaken.
This is to comply with existing regulations within the library, and not a specific attack on one title.

so someone should make a complaint about the bible and see if it`s dealt with in the same manner.
