Greenbrier High School Library Has a "Christian Fiction" Shelf, Mostly Filled with LaHaye/

In the course of trying to verify if Columbia County High Schools have actually pulled unapproved novels from the shelves of its media centers, a Columbia County resident entered the Greenbrier High School library and shared with Southern Sprawl Media the following picture.

At the bottom is a shelf labeled Christian Fiction. As you can see from the cropped picture above, most of its contents are Tim LaHaye's and Jerry Jenkins's Left Behind series. Second place in shelf space goes to Mel Odom's books set in the same universe.

Is this a violation of the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution and a similar injunction in Georgia's constitution? Do Christians think this is a good representation of "Christian Fiction?" Do educators believe these books add to the mission of public high school media centers?
