Christians believe that their God is real and alive. Live and let live. You might get more tolerance if you show tolerance.

A public library is part of the public school system?

Yeah, they're used by public schools, government funded, etc.

So nothing. Just made a comment. I guess we're done on this topic.

First, as somebody already pointed out, this is a public library.

Second, who said religion isn't allowed in the public education system.
School representatives teaching / endorsing religion is not allowed.
But schools across this country still have organizations like Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Emphasis added by me.
It astounds me how many Christians don't recognize the intolerance other Christians impose. How Christians implement different mechanisms in the school system, but when other religions want to do the same suddenly the capability for anybody to do so is closed...

First question. What do you want allowed in the public school system?
Please don't be vague, but rather be specific as to who is leading the action and what action you are referencing.

Second question. Are you willing for other religions to do that as well? Like Islam and even Satanism?

Finally. Do you understand the position of your "fellow Christians" regarding their opinion on question #2?
Thanks from Hollywood

I get as much tolerance as I want. My government granted and enforced rights demand it.

But again, a total deflection from the point of my post.

You are making an unsubstantiated assumption there. You are assuming that this individual is proselytizing. I seems they are merely reading a book to the kids.

Well, I would hope all of us could agree that this sick creature shouldn't be in the public library reading to children. Could be traumatizing. However, I'm certain that there are people here that support this behavior.

Okay. So now you aren't even going to address questions on your stated position...
