It isn’t even close.

According to a new national phone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports and the Capitol Resource Institute, 69 percent of likely U.S. voters believe books containing explicit sexual depictions of sex acts, including homosexual sex, should not be present in public high school libraries.

Eighty-nine percent of these likely voters said it is important public schools fully inform parents about what is being taught to their children in classrooms. That includes 70 percent who said it is very important.

The majority of likely voters opposed to such books in school libraries bumps up to 79 percent for middle school libraries and 85 percent for elementary school libraries.

“There is no such thing as ‘age-appropriate’ for obscenity and pornography in public school libraries,” said Karen England, president of the California-based Capitol Resource Institute (CRI). “If the public knew how many books containing explicit sexual depictions of sex acts where in their public school libraries they would be pulling their children out of school immediately.”

Seventy-seven percent of voters said they are concerned school-age children are being exposed to sexual material that is not age appropriate. Just 20 percent are not concerned about children being exposed to inappropriate sexual material.

Other results from the survey include:

– Sixty-four percent (64%) of parents and 65% of grandparents are at least somewhat concerned that public school libraries contain material that is sexually age-inappropriate for the students in school.

– Forty-eight percent (48%) of parents and 68% of grandparents are opposed to public schools teaching children about homosexual lifestyles.

– Fifty-six percent (56%) of parents and 74% of grandparents are opposed to public schools teaching children about transsexualism.

– Seventy percent (70%) of parents and 86% of grandparents are opposed to public schools teaching children about how to perform sex acts.

– Seventy-eight percent (78%) of parents and 84% of grandparents believe it is important that parents have control over what books are present in public school libraries.

– Majorities of both parents (55%) and grandparents (59%) believe public school students should not be exposed to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual lifestyles before age 14.
