library shelves with booksResidents of a moderate-sized town in the Lone Star State have proven that the Body of Christ can bring about some major policy changes.

Last summer the city library in Temple, Texas, placed a display of materials in the children's section of the library that promoted the homosexual and transgender lifestyles. This controversial move resulted in an uproar after the group, Concerned Christian Citizens, alerted town residents that their children were exposed to the inappropriate display.

Joe Goodson heads the Christian nonprofit organization, told OneNewsNow that it took a concerted effort earlier this week to convince the city council and the library to change policy.

“It's good enough to make sure that there will be no further displays of a promotional nature – or of an advocacy nature of things sexual and [of an] immoral [nature] such as the LGBTQ agenda – but's it's also vague enough to require our ongoing vigilance and watchfulness,” Goodson stressed.

Nearly a thousand (966) local residents signed a petition calling on the board to establish a neutral policy on social issues of a serious nature – such as promoting an abhorrent lifestyle to kids.

“There was a counter-petition against us,” Goodson pointed out. “It was a digital international thing that took off from the numbers standpoint, but it had other people from other countries – much less, other states and communities – [in addition to] our own local community.”

However, Goodson impressed that the policy change is largely due to the board and city council responding to the loud voice of local Christians and concerned parents.
