    LGBT Books in Public Libraries / Mobile Phone Ban During Jury Trials

    On Monday's Backchat, LGBT books in our libraries. Ten children books featuring same sex theme have been removed for the public libraries after campaign by anti-rights group. LCSD acknowledged that these books did not advocate homosexuality, but the removal from the shelf was a response "based on concerns by various readers". What do you think of the controversies? Should these children books be removed from public libraries? Is the removal of books considered as 'censorship'? Or should these books be read with parental guidance? How should children be taught with family values and homosexuality? Leave us a message, or email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, banning the use of mobile phones during jury trials.
