“parents need to decide what their individual child can and cannot read”

Definitely.

“My wife and I raised our kids to have good judgement and moral”

We all should do that, its our job as a parent.

“It really is not all that hard and much better than permitting the nanny state dictate what our kids can check out of a public library.”

So you review every book your kid chooses before they check it out or read it in the library? Are you sure? I know as a kid I liked to push the boundaries. Thats kinda what kids do.

Where is the line? Should ANY kind of material be available to any age kid?

The two kids who can read, read a great deal and have been very successful in their educational pursuits. The eldest was near the top of his high school class and his little sister will do better than her brother. He read "Ulysses" in high school.

However, I have not read every book they brought home, but I trust both of them to make good decisions.

Moreover, they are smart enough and mature enough to read complex material that some may find objectionable.
