More calls for book banning from the friendly folks behind Crusaders for Christ. This sort of news story must be all too routine these days as the source I cited barely gave it five whole sentences.
Three parents with the group Crusaders for Christ told members of the Bartow County Board of Education that several books are too offensive for students to be reading.
The group’s leader, the Rev. Dwight Holcomb, told board members, “You’re going to answer to God Almighty for your decision.”
Among the books the Crusaders for Christ want banned are “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck, “The Martian Chronicles” by Ray Bradbury and “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee.
Admittedly I’ve never read either Of Mice and Men nor To Kill a Mockingbird, but could someone please explain to me just what the hell is wrong with The Martian Chronicles which I have read? What the hell are they objecting to?
