Should we urge our governments to force changes to the violent misogynistic Quran and Bible to make those documents more civilized?

No, I cannot think of a more worthless waste of our government's time and money.

This is a terrible idea.

Was keeping I.D. out of high school a poor idea as well?

No, I.D. was a masquerade created by fundamentalist Christians to obfuscate the religious nature of their program and disguise it as science. They were trying to pull the wool over the school boards' eyes and sneak their religion into the science classroom. They were wrong and were rightfully outed.

Its not something that I would have had the government spend much time and money on, but when the people take things to the courts then the government has to respond.

Re: The First is first.
Remember that Kitzmiller v Dover involved private citizens suing a government entity for violating the Constitution.

Sure, that's what I was talking about.

When he says that the government should censor these books, and then I say that's a waste of time and money, then its kinda retarded to ask, in response to that, if going after ID was also a waste of time and money.

In that case, people brought it to court. The government didn't really have much of a choice in addressing it - other than dismissing the case, I suppose.

What does anyone imagine would happen if the government attempted Greatest's proposal?

Well, for what reason, and under what authority, would they even begin attempting his proposal?

How does the government even go about starting a program to censor books? Wouldn't it crash before it even took off?

This whole idea is just stupid.
