Borders, Waldenbooks Won’t Carry Magazine

Karl Sandwell-Weiss writes “Borders and Waldenbooks stores will not stock the April-May issue of Free Inquiry magazine because it contains cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that provoked deadly protests among Muslims in several countries. More from here.

For us, the safety and security of our customers and employees is a top priority, and we believe that carrying this issue could challenge that priority,” Borders Group Inc. spokeswoman Beth Bingham said Wednesday.

What will you do when someone demands the library not put out the magazine because, as a Muslim, it offends them? This magazine is from the Council for Secular Humanism, not a Christian group.”
