Orange City public library officials have not yet decided how to respond after someone checked four L-G-B-T-Q books out of the library and burned them during the recent Orange City Pride Festival.

Paul Dorr, leader of a religious group called Rescue the Perishing, burned the books in a live post on Facebook to protest homosexuality.

Amanda Vazquez, director of the Orange City Library, says the library board hasn’t yet discussed the book burning.

OC……..or not returned. :14

The books are not technically overdue yet.
Vasquez says the incident has sparked support for the library:

OC…..all over the country. :14

Dorr told The Sioux City Journal he does not intend to pay to replace the books he burned.

Earlier this year, a petition was circulated to have books written from an L-G-B-T-Q perspective removed from the Orange City Library.
