He is partly right, it’s spiritual warfare against principalities and powers in the heavenly places, not librarians.
Actor Kirk Cameron is speaking out after public libraries across the U.S. reportedly declined or ignored his request to host a story hour reading of his new book, “As You Grow.” The “Growing Pains” star told CBN’s Faithwire he and his publisher Brave Books are hoping libraries change their minds, though he’s fully prepared to go to court to defend his rights. “Brave Books Publishing and I wrote a letter to some of these libraries and we’re hoping that they’ll reconsider,” Cameron said. “We’re sending them a free copy of the book. It’s theirs to keep, to share with their patrons.” The actor said he’s hoping these libraries see the positive values embedded in the book and, as a result, will invite him in to read to children. He said “As You Grow” is about “biblical wisdom” and teaching kids how to “grow the fruit of the spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control.” “You would think that public libraries would be thrilled for a book that would teach these virtues to children,” Cameron said.
“We were denied by over fifty woke libraries.” And if libraries don’t change course, Cameron said he’s fully prepared to take action. “If they double down on their discrimination and exclude certain viewpoints just because they think that they don’t like them, well then I told them that I’m prepared to assert my constitutional rights in court,” Cameron said. Watch his response.
This story has a happy ending as libraries open up to Cameron and his message:
SCARSDALE, N.Y. — Kirk Cameron received an enthusiastic reception from families on Friday as he delivered an uplifting message of faith, love and patriotism at Scarsdale Public Library in Westchester County, New York.
The crowd exceeded space limitations, forcing Cameron to do two readings of his new children’s book in the hour allotted for the program. Hundreds of people waiting in line never got inside the library.
“We’re here because we love God, we love our families, our children, we love our country and we love Scarsdale Public Library,” the actor, writer and producer said before the lively audience while promoting his book, “As You Grow.”
