Also, this: News to Astonish!

Posted: June 10, 2009 in Braak

In Milwaukee, Robert C. Braun of the Christian Civil Liberties Union has filed a complaint against the local public library for the right to “publicly burn or destroy by another means the library’s copy of Baby Be-Bop.

Say what you want about the ACLU–they have never, EVER, demanded that a plaintiff have the right to BURN AN OFFENSIVE BOOK.

I don’t really get what it means that there are “Christian Civil Liberties.”  Apparently, Christians can only have their civil liberties if someone else loses theirs?

    No need to offer quips and possibilities—-the absurdity of this speaks for itself. Is justified violence an end goal?

  2. Jeff Holland says:

    I was gonna make a goofy comment about how “Baby Be-Bop” sounds pretty evil to me, but then I noticed it was written by Francesca Block, who I WISH had been writing YA books when I was a kid. I read Weetzy Bat for an Adolescent Lit course in college, and was pretty blown away.

    Which, of course, means her books must be PURGED! PUUUUUURGED WITH FIIIIIIIIRE!

    (Why always with the fire, anyway? Simply throwing the book out does pretty much the same job.)

    No, it’s no good–if it’s just thrown out, some poor, lost Christian child rooting through the giant bags of garbage at the transfer station may inadvertently lay eyes on it and thus become INFECTED with ANTI-CHRISTIAN IDEAS.

    Burning is the only option.

    Also, it’s probably important to kill the author, and anyone who knows about the ideas or has been exposed to them.

    These people make me so very sad. I wish there was a way for Christ to come back and say “DUDE WTF! I don’t want you to burn books! I don’t want you to shelter people! I don’t want you to kill doctors that provide abortions! And I most certainly DO NOT want you to do this stuff in MY name!”
    It’s almost like *gasp* most christians don’t know ANYTHING about Christ. So very very sad.

    Yeah, here’s an awesome and relevant article, pointing out how, in the abortion debate, only one side actually uses terrorism.
