Actor Kirk Cameron and author of new Christian children's book banned from reading his book in over 50 US libraries

by Alex Collett

Well-known Growing Pains actor , Kirk Cameron, has a new Christian children's book out. However he claims he has been banned from reading the book to children in over 50 US public libraries.

The book, titled 'As you Grow', published by Brave Books, has been rejected from several libraries, who currently hold drag queen story hours for children.

One library in Rhode Island, the Rochambeau Public Library told Mr Cameron over the phone - according to Fox News, Tucker Carlson Program - that they "are a very queer-friendly library" and "Our messaging does not align, we will pass on having you run a program in our space."

Speaking to Mr Carlson on his "Tonight" program, Mr Cameron expressed frustration at the rejection, he said: "It's a book that teaches biblical wisdom through the seasons of life to children and the value of growing the fruit of the spirit like love, joy, kindness.

"I wanted to read this book in public libraries and I was denied by over 50 book libraries that have hosted drag queen story hours.

Mr Cameron is now calling on parents of children to call their nearest public library that hosts a drag queen story hour and let them know that they want the chance to read a children's Christian book, or the Bible in a story hour.

He told Mr Carlson: "If the libraries' response is no, they are likely to be breaking the law, violating the constitution and can contact and we will give them free books and all they need to turn that denial into a revival in their community."
