“Rick Warren should be in Prison” that was the subject of an e-mail I received from Sojourners/Call to Renewal. I mentioned last week that the US Prison system was banning religious books for a variety of reasons. I received the e-mail today talking about this ban.

More importantly, it provided an action step to help stop the purge. Click here to learn more about their campaign and to take action.

This is a quote from their e-mail:

Imagine walking into your local library, only to discover that the religion section has been decimated – purged of books by authors ranging from Reinhold Niebuhr to Rick Warren. That’s exactly what’s happening right now to inmates in federal prisons, as the Bureau of Prisons strips libraries of any title that does not appear on a government-approved list.

I already took action and e-mailed the Director of US Prisons. Will you help stop the censoring of Prison Libraries?
