Library Refuses Anti-Gay Book by Fox News Reporter, He Claims Censorship

| by Michael Allen

Fox News contributor Todd Starnes recently expressed his displeasure after a small library in Cordova, Alaska, refused to accept a donation of his new book "God Less America."

Kanji Christian, a Starnes fan and resident of the small town, tried to donate the book to the local library.

According to Starnes' column on, Kanji told him, "She (the librarian) just said that if it didn’t make it in it’s because they check reviews and then decide whether or not it’s something the community would be interested in."

The library later told Starnes in a phone call that there were a lack of "professional reviews," but Starnes fired back by claiming Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee had raved about his book.

Starnes added, "I’m just glad the Cordova Public Library has ample room on their shelves for the works of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and President Obama. No wonder they don’t have room for the bad boy of the literary world."

However, The Friendly Atheist notes that the same library carries "books written by Laura Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson, Ronald Reagan, and Newt Gingrich."

Starnes ended his angry rebuke with, "But that’s how the tolerance and diversity crowd operates. They don’t burn books – they just ban them."

According to, Starnes' book claims that "Barack Hussein Obama" and gay rights advocates are part of a conspiracy "to eradicate the Christian faith" from the public square.

In his book, Starnes reportedly compares non-Christian Americans to Adolf Hitler:

Hitler was not a big fan of the Baby Jesus. Neither were the Communists. And apparently some American employees and schoolteachers share an equal disdain for the little Lord Jesus.

Starnes also recalls a simpler time before gay people protested for equal rights:

I grew up in a much simpler time - when blackberry was a pie and dirty dancing meant somebody forgot to clean out the barn for the square dance. It was a time when father still knew best - when the girls were girls and the men were men. I grew up in a time when a rainbow was a sign of God's promise, not gay rights.

Starnes predicts a scary future in which pastors will be "brought up on charges of hate speech against homosexuals."

He also praises "Duck Dynasty" TV reality star Phil Robertson, who compared homosexuality to bestiality and claimed that black people were "happy" living under Jim Crow laws.
