Does the Bible Contain Porn?

Does the Bible Contain Porn?

After seeing the other titles pulled under Utah’s new Sensitive Material in Schools Act, a Utah parent is arguing that they should be considered indecent under Utah’s new book-banning law. SO, does the Bible qualify under these new definitions of “indecent material”?

Milwaukee Mayor, Calavier Johnson, joins us to talk about his experience pitching Milwaukee as the next tech hub at South by Southwest.

Should We Ban the Bible?

Yesterday we talked about 1st graders in Waukesha not being able to sing “Rainbowland” because it was deemed “controversial”.  But, after reading about this Utah parent, I wonder how the Bible would hold up against some of Waukesha’s new standards. 

Frustrated by the books being removed from school libraries, a Utah parent says there’s one that hasn’t been challenged yet, but that they believe should be, for being “one of the most sex-ridden books around.”

So they’ve submitted a request for their school district in Davis County to now review the Bible for any inappropriate content.

“Incest, onanism, bestiality, prostitution, genital mutilation, fellatio, dildos, rape, and even infanticide,” the parent wrote in their request, listing topics they found concerning in the religious text. “You’ll no doubt find that the Bible, under Utah Code Ann. § 76-10-1227, has ‘no serious values for minors’ because it’s pornographic by our new definition.”

I can’t wait to see if there is a parent willing to follow suit in Wisconsin.

Mayor Cavalier Johnson

Fresh off his trip to Austin, Tx where he attended SXSW, Mayor Johnson joins the show to talk about how his pitch to make Milwaukee the next big tech hub went. 

Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson focused on innovation in Milwaukee’s past, present, and future as he pitched the city to an international audience of startup founders and investors on March 10 at the popular South by Southwest (SXSW) conference.

Johnson participated in an international city pitch event in which he had six minutes to pitch Milwaukee as a tech hub. He took questions during the second half of his presentation. Audience members asked whether Milwaukee could provide enough engineering talent to support a large tech company, and about what Milwaukee is currently doing to support innovation and entrepreneurship. We also asked him about the new developments in Madison when it comes to reckless driving. Reckless drivers could face higher fines and prison time under a measure that passed the state Assembly Wednesday with broad bipartisan support. The full Legislature also passed another bill that would let police seize and impound the vehicles of repeat reckless drivers.
