Reading Fifty Shades of Grey in Brevard County, Florida

The Smoking Gun reports on correspondence from the locals inspired by the news that Brevard County had banned the S & M romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey from its shelves.

Methinks that the woman who noted that the book is "not the work of God" needs a reminder that the church and the state are different things, and that really, it is best that way.

It is not obvious to me that, more generally, tax dollars should be devoted to subsidizing the reading of romance novels, sexy or not, but if they are, the novels in question should be picked based on something other than religious criteria.
