Judge: Keep Potter Books in School
Anyone feeling a bit of cognitive dissonance here?
Nice find. This reminds me of how so many evangelical groups are calling mormonism rediculous because of it's absurd disortion of scientific facts, but they ignore their own religion which does this same thing.
Wow, this is somewhat close to where I live...
I fekkin' hate all censorship, so I hope some (un)fortunate accident befalls her...
A) Religious books are allowed in most school libraries.
B) Harry Potter is not remotely religious, except that it has some Christian flavor (very subtle, but detectable). She has most likely not read the books.
C) Even if this were true, allowing people to have access to religious books is acceptable, so long as they do not actively teach it as a "good" path.
Witchcraft isn't a religion, but Harry Potter is. I believe in Dumbledore. I sacrifice puppies to Him.
This even sillier than the Harry Potter books themselves. Might as well get rid of The Iliad, Beowolf, the Epic of Gilgamesh, etc.
And even if Harry Potter were "religious" why would it matter? Why shouldn't a school library have religious books?
i feel bad for the kid, hes going to get made fun of for having the "stupid mom"
Hehehehe so true...
But I find the argument of removing Potter because it violates the separation of Church and State to be a clever one - too bad it was not properly used...
Just another silly parent. I honestly don't see how it can be accused of witchcraft anymore than the Bible can.
Hahaha. Idiots running about
It is always amusing to see anyone say that Harry Potter promotes witchcraft and satanism....
Heck, people like that are what got me into the Harry Potter books in the first place, I owe her a favor.
Not in Georgia!
How many mothers?
Oh yeah, just one. Why should library stocks have to be dictated by some sanctimonious s---stain.
I have an exgirlfriend who is a Harry Potter fundamentalist and dabbled in witchcraft... and thinks I'm stalking her and that dating on the internet is a good idea. Why care if people do "witchcraft", it doesn't do anything. If it did, I would have been killed by her a long time ago.
If witchcraft worked, everyone would be a witch.
Just like if praying to Christ worked, everyone would be Christian.
Yeah this took place in my county; its been an issue for several years now. Ms. Mallory is on the majority opinion.
I found it funny though, when she said schools try to "indocrinate" children with witchcraft followed by a: "I have a dream that God will be welcomed back in our schools again"
this lady makes sense, i read treasure island as a child and now i worship pirates.
What about all the books about religions in libraries?
If nuclear toilets worked, everyone would be a nuke bum.
Not a logical fallacy. You'll have to give a better rebuttal if you want to throw that charge around.
And I have no clue what a "nuke bum" is. A hobo fueled by the power of a thousand suns?
My school didn't ban books. We had a bible, koran, harry potter 1, The Jewish book, whatever buhdists and hindus read, and a anti banning book poster.
