I have wondered for a long time now why the Bible has not been banned, as it is a book full of hatred; its content advocates murder, violence, suicide, incest, child abuse, rape, slavery, and many more atrocities. Other books have been banned (including a "Satanic" one) but not the Bible, which is more evil than many other books, and it's considered the most "sacred" book in American history. Is there anything we can do about it? Can we in any way show America and the world how evil and detrimental the Bible is to humanity?

Risky reads! 5 books that have been banned
wait they banned "Brave New World" it's one of my favorite books of all time, i don't really see why the content should be any kind of matter, they allow books with much more heavy handed sexual content and it isn't really that big of a deal, it's aimed for teens and adults is it not?
I find it to be a great read and a good comment on society, tsk tsk tsk
You have a point, i see what you mean about monogamous relationships being unhealthy could be advocated by the book.
But honestly, it's fiction, if they get so easily affected by the things they hear and read i'm surprised they can read.
It's subversive in a lot of ways, sure, and the end is kind of grizzly.
But i still think it's a great book people should read(as do you i see)
oh and the aimed at teens thing, you're completely right, i really think it was aimed at teens, but in todays society it might have been, which is why i said that, and now that i think about it maybe i shouldn't have ^^
