Sojourners calls for letters about prison book purge.
Following up on last week's New York Times article reporting that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has been systematically removing all religious books from prison libraries that aren't on its unreleased list of "approved" books — a list that leaves everything off from Maimonides to Reinhold Niebuhr to Rick Warren — Sojourners has launched a letter-writing campaign protesting the purge. You can find links to more about the prison policy in my earlier post.
