Is Anyone Else Disturbed by this News?

I was skimming the American Libraries Direct the other day and came across this article: Occult Concerns Jinx Teen Read Program.  I can’t believe Pickens County pulled out of the collaborative Summer Reading Program all together.  Couldn’t they just take another angle?  Say mystery fiction or learning about new things?  Not that I think that it’s all right to appease any kind of censors, but come on, give me a break!  Hate to see what kind of unrest a Harry Potter themed party would have on the community–they’d probably burn someone at the stake.

    It’s the state of our country right now. Everyone wants to be P.C. all the time, and since people are lawsuit happy it might have panicked the library system. I wonder if they put out a disclaimer when they advertised the event like “these activities are purely for entertainment purposes, they are not meant to offend or alienate any religion.”
