Great, we need to combat those who are ignorant.

Books are sacred and I think some religious nuts believe that, too; only in their twisted minds, the books are dangerous because of their insidious sacred nature.

Books are only sacred to the specific person holding them sacred, this is why we have censorship

I hate all censorship. I had a wacko, 11th grade English teacher, daughter of an ahole evangelical minister (He ran an awful retirement home that mistreated and deceived and defrauded the seniors their, and Social Security- I knew this to some extent then, it later came out big time). She blacked out all the "bad" words in One Day in the Life of Ivan Denitsovitch. I got to page 29 and said no more. I refused to read it. (I have since then. Ive even taught it) She agreed I had to read something. As I was constantly reading, I held up a book and said how about this? The book was 3 or 4 times longer, so she agreed and told me to write a report (f'ing book report. Even in 11th grade I knew their worthlessness and wrote about the book's key themes). The book - Catch 22. Try writing about the killing of a prostitute for an evangelical- girlfriend, ha.

I find book burning the most heinous of crimes, to burn a book it to try to burn ideas because you have reasonable answers and so resort to violence.

Seems on this occasion the act backfired on the twat with a vengeance, I hope all the LBGTQ folk wrote him loving thank you letters, I'm sure he would "love " that.

Obviously the first guy never read Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.

I'm glad that stuff was replaced.

I guess they think they can eradicate everything or everyone they don't like.

The sort of man who burns the book is the same sort of man who a few hundred years ago would have burned the people.

@LenHazell53 Exactly.
