Library Board Divided On Whether Sex Offenders Should Be Banned

The board of directors of a Kansas library is divided on whether sex offenders should be completely banned from giving presentations, according to the Wichita Eagle.

While some board members said registered sex offenders should be automatically disqualified from headlining events, other board members said it should be allowable in some circumstances and want library staff to have some say, the Wichita Eagle noted.

Unbelievable that people can be so stupid!

A proposal to background-check people for past sex offenses before they are allowed to make presentations at Wichita libraries was put on hold Tuesday, after a split in the board between those who want a complete ban on sex offenders and those who want staff to have some leeway.

The policy originated in a backlash against a drag queen story time almost a year ago at the Advanced Learning Library and has been criticized by the leader of the LGBT-rights group Equality Kansas.

It was apparent from the comments at Tuesday’s meeting that there is strong consensus on the library board that prospective program presenters should be screened through a national web site listing sex offenders.

But that consensus broke down over the issue of how much discretion the staff should have in allowing past sex offenders to participate in library presentations. More

Have they completely lost their minds?

Why is this even being questioned? Pretty sure most everyone working with or around children have to have a background check. Are they choosing political correctness over the safety of our children?

I feel like I’m living in an alternate universe where everyone has gone mad!
