Halloween book burning

You can't make this stuff up. To get the UK-based report about this upcoming North Carolina event, click the title of this entry.

To get the list of books to be burned, and why, go right to the Amazing Grace Baptist Church site (in Canton, North Carolina) here.

This just makes me sad.
Are we actually burning BIBLES as heretical now??? The writings of Mother Theresa because she was once possessed by a demon??? Christian rock music CDs???? For crying out loud, what is the world coming to?
