Chapel-run prison libraries are pulling certain unapproved books on faith, fearing that they may fuel recruitment for militant religious groups. What do you think?

  • “I guess I'm not that worried about religious fundamentalists in our jails because they're in our jails.”

  • “That makes sense. Those big religious books are often hollowed out by prisoners to conceal smaller banned books.”

  • “Now I'll have to wait eight to 10 years to find out what happened to Jesus.”
