An organization is asking the American Library Association to stop banning banned books that deal with leaving the homosexual lifestyle.

The American Library Association conducts Banned Books Week to protest books that have been removed from library shelves claiming censorship. The dates this year are from October 22 to 28.

Christopher Doyle of Voice of the Voiceless says the ALA does not include on their “banned book” list any ex-homosexual liberature, which is banned in libraries across the United States, including in schools.

But books affirming the homosexual lifestyle are generally kept on the shelves for everyone, including youths, to read.

Doyle says that makes one wonder why books about leaving the lifestyle, sometimes offered free, are rejected by libraries.

He has an answer.

“There are homosexuals and the gay activists in that organization that are actively anti-ex-gay and keeping us out of this list,” Doyle tells OneNewsNow.

Voice of the Voiceless is asking people to go the ALA website and submit a three-minute excerpt from an ex-homosexual book. The organization is seeking readers for its “Virtual Read-out” and is posting the book exerts on its Youtube channel.

Doyle also announced a conference for former homosexuals in Washington this month, which will include music from former homosexual Dennis Jernigan.
