All Beliefs are Welcome Here!


I was surfing the web and came across something that just pissed me off to no end.

I went to ala.org (American Library Association) and found that they have a section where turbo- christian freaks who would love to snuff out free speech can actually lead to a book being band!!!! To me that is a Huge slap in the face! Who are those prudes that think they have the right to decided what I may and may not read?!!!

........
No I just find the Christian view that everything they don't like is Satanic to be rediculous
They read the bible-to them other books are pointless.....
I can't be a Christian AND use my brain!
in my 8th grade year i had to do a research paper on him in thought he actualy based his books on the so called struggle of god vs satan. the ring representing sin... how that fits in is beyond my knowledge but nevertheless very well written book series in my opinion....
Ultimately, it is the owner/keeper of the library that will determine what books will and will not be offered. I'm still annoyed that I only found "His Dark Materials," by Phillip Pullman a couple of years ago, thanks to the moral strictures of many small minded libraries in my youth. What questions that series would have had me asking as a teenager!
If only all librarians could be like that.

these are the top 10 on ala
this is funny and sad at the same time.
whats even more funny is that the kids of the people who wrote in complaints read the books anyways!
i just found the top 100 baned books, and picked out a few of my fav.'s for this list. honestly ppl. they cant be serious

1 Harry Potter (series), by J.K. Rowling (knew this was on here!)
2 Alice series, by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (uh didn't disney do not one but TWO movies?)
5 Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck (manditory for high school)
6 I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou (another manditory in high school)
7 Scary Stories (series), by Alvin Schwartz (my eighth grade teacher read these to us!)
13 Captain Underpants (series), by Dav Pilkey (sold at elementary school book fairs!)
14 The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain (manditory in eighth grade)
17 The Color Purple, by Alice Walker (honestly??)
19 Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger (another high school manditory)
21 To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee (9th grade, had to read the book AND watch the movie)
28 Bridge To Terabithia, by Katherine Paterson (another childrens movie, but i did cry at the end damnit!)

67 A Time to Kill, by John Grisham (uh isn't this a movie??)
75 Anastasia (series), by Lois Lowry(i know disney did a movie, and now i'm gonna have once upon a december stuck in my head for the rest of the day!)

90 A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeline L’Engle (uhh 3rd grade teacher read and we had to do projects...wow)
94 Goosebumps (series), by R.L. Stine(.........really........)

and in all honesty if parents dont like em dont let ur kids read em. if teachers don't like em don't read em in class. think ppl.
If they don't understand something it must be magick! And magick(the occult) is a dark art and is of Satan....this is dark ages mentality...
Christians were also responsible for the burning of many great libraries-setting us back hundreds of years technology wise! And getting rid of a lot of records about now extinct civilizations...
i heart u justin
