To those out there who thought the Danes shouldn't have shown the Mohammed cartoons, or the blame for the riots after the Pope made some provocative comments lies squarely with the Pope, or that Comedy Central was wise in forcing South Park to black out the innocuous image of Mohammed, I present you with the predictable result of your philosophy:

'Ban Harry Potter or face more school shootings'

A woman who maintains that the Harry Potter books are an attempt to teach children witchcraft is pushing for the second time to have them banned from school libraries.

Laura Mallory, a mother of four from the Atlanta suburb of Loganville, told a Georgia Board of Education officer that the books by British author J.K. Rowling, sought to indoctrinate children as Wiccans, or practitioners of religious witchcraft.

Referring to the recent rash of deadly assaults at schools, Mallory said books that promote evil - as she claims the Potter ones do - help foster the kind of culture where school shootings happen.

That would not happen if students instead read the Bible, Mallory said [editor's note: I wonder exactly how influential the Wiccan faith is in the Amish community?].


Gee, sure is a nice grade school full a kids ya got here. Would be quite a shame if somethin' were to happen to it.

Congratulations. You've taught every nut with a conviction that the most effective way to get what you want is to threaten violence, even indirectly. Reap/sow, etc.
