Banned in Rotherham


When Persian-speaking members of the Hexthorpe Methodist Church wanted to publicize their Easter play, the main public library in the British town of Rotherham told them they could not put posters alongside flyers advertising other local educational and theatrical events. Church members say they were told they couldn't put the flyer up because it might offend other people. A spokesman for the borough council says it has barred all religious groups from displaying posters in the library for 20 years.
