“A panel of Fox News hosts expressed outrage on Thursday after one Texas school district temporarily removed the Bible for review during a push by conservatives to ban certain school books.
Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany reported the news on the Outnumbered program. She said Anne Frank's diary is also facing review. In total, about 40 books are being reviewed by the Texas district.
Hosts of the Fox News program argued that the review should be limited to books with gay and transgender themes.
"The Bible, the most read book in human history," McEnany remarked, "Over the last 50 years, nearly 4 billion copies have been sold. Compare that to Harry Potter, which is number three at 400 million.”
"Not only that, foundation of the world's largest religion," she continued. "A classic historical text. If you don't believe it in the religious context, at least it can be appreciated in that context. But that's the one we're removing!"
