Lying sack of sh** euros should at least be honest when posting on the internet. Here's the full story link http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-02-07/local/36963373_1_books-old... and here's an excerpt about her reasons-Murphy said, depicts scenes of bestiality, gang rape and an infant’s gruesome murder, content she believes could be too intense for teenage readers.
The mother doesn't want the book banned, she wants the same consideration put in place for the book that is given the movie based on the book. From the article again- If teachers wish to show excerpts from an R-rated movie in class, such as the 1998 film adaptation of “Beloved,” starring Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover, they must notify families two weeks ahead and receive written permission from parents. The school system uses content filters to monitor what students can access on the Internet. But for books, teachers don’t need to give notice. And finally a big part of what the lying sack of sh** euro missed is this quote from the mother “To me, mature references means slavery or the Holocaust,” Laura Murphy said. “I’m not thinking my kid is going to be reading a book with bestiality.”
Personally I would have read the book first if I hadn't already, and I'm not in favor of banning books, but I am in favor of being in charge of what my children read until they are out of my control.
Lesson learned here is that lying sack of sh** euros will use mistruths, half truths and sometimes lies to try to make a point.

The Bible is very intense, but we don't ban it. My post is honest. It obviously struck a nerve with you, Fredo. The truth hurts real bad, doesn't it.

To peck the eyes out of a corps( corpse ?)

The bible is intense, we don't force anyone to read it however.

I agree ZC it is an injustice.

Just like those who want to ban high schoolers from reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn for it's use of the N-word despite it being a pro-abolition novel and one of the few true examples of a novel humanizing slaves during the time of it's publication. A book that definitely should not be banned.

And a book in my library

What they also need to teach, is the aftermath of slavery--i.e., the White Mans' Burden.
