perhaps what isn't being grasped here is that the book banning is being done in the name of the bible, either directly (because the books insult/go against the bible) or indirectly (they promote lifestyles that go against the bible, per the book-banners). 

- "in order to promote (i.e. enforce) a christian lifestyle, we've established rules to ban books."
- "ok, we're going to use your banning rules to ban the foundation of your lifestyle: the bible"
- "uh, that's not what we had in mind..."


yes, the impact will be minimal.  kids aren't flocking to libraries to check out a copy of King James.  but the symbolism of getting the bible banned by the fundamentalists' own rules?  priceless.

I think your assessment is wrong
the impact will be zero
And the symbolism will not be grasped by anyone you want to

Binance pulled out of the rescue.  He stands to lose the 6% too.
