New Jersey push to ban Ann Coulter best-seller

godlessJune 13, 2006: Best-sellers were once made by being banned in Boston.

But a pair of New Jersey state legislators tried to ban a book already atop the best-sellers list.

The book stirring all the controversy was “Godless: The Church of Liberalism” by WND columnist Ann Coulter.

Two Democrats – Assemblywomen Joan Quigley and Linda Stender – pushed to ban “Godless” from all bookstores in the Garden State because of Coulter’s biting criticism of four 9-11 widows known as “the Jersey Girls,” who demanded investigations into President Bush’s role in allowing the terrorist attacks.

“No one in New Jersey should buy this book and allow Ann Coulter to profit from her hate-mongering,” the two said in a joint statement. “We are asking New Jersey retailers statewide to stand with us and express their outrage by refusing to carry or sell copies of Coulter’s book. Her hate-filled attacks on our 9-11 widows has no place on New Jersey bookshelves.”
