Two books, one containing an explicit depiction of statutory lesbian rape, and the other a homosexual orgy, have been removed from local schools’ required reading lists by outraged New Jersey parents.

“The texts, Norwegian Wood and Tweak: Growing up on Methamphetamines, originally appeared on the summer reading list for both middle school and high school students at Monroe Township schools this year,” reports Kathleen Gilbert for LifeSiteNews.

Norwegian Wood, a novel by Haruki Murakami, includes a graphic depiction of a 31-year-old woman raping a 13-year-old girl, while Tweak, a story about addiction, describes a homosexual orgy scene as well as the details of drug use.

The books, school officials say, were included on the list by a group of teachers, librarians, and administrators, and approved by the board of education, writes Gilbert.
