WOW to remove any books from the library is not only wrong but just plain stupid. I do not want my children to get a narrow education as they will not live in a narrow world when they go off to college and the real world. Sometimes people take their views and force them on others. I am sure if you as the students have read this book you will find that they would not want removed. For parents who do not want their child to read it offer and alternative.

Really? The people who are wanting this book banned need to pull their bible out of their tailpipe and grow up. The world is not Mayberry, people do curse and become vulgar at times.

If you really wish to limit the range of knowledge that your children can receive then sure, let's start burning books in town square. Let's keep them closed up away from the outside world and safe from it. That makes alot of sense. Oh wait, don't forget to protect them from history also. We don't want to scar them with the thought of burning Jews or Lynching innocent black folk.

How about you as parents learn to guide your children instead of ignorantly banning things?

Think about it this way if you ban it, they will want to read/watch/listen 200% more than before just because you banned it.

Get My Point?
