    I wonder if they also got letters from hogwarts after confidently claiming that the spell/curse in the book could really summon evil spirits... I mean, it must have worked for them right.

    I think it was a school board requirement more than a teacher decision?? I think back in middle school
    For some reason, I’m also getting vague memories of an option to sit out for that lesson too.

    They almost managed to make the vote..:blobfearful::blobfearful::blobfearful: The movie showed that only by a few votes, “intelligent design” avoided getting taught as a SCIENCE in high school text books.:eek:

    Edit: There’s ABSOLUTELY nothing intelligent about “Intelligent Design”.:facepalm:

    I'm surprised we are not in the middle of armageddon by now if a book series read by hundreds of millions can conjure evil spirits.

    No, it's not real curses. Ai-chan would know. Ai-chan practiced wicca and used to have a real witch's grimoire. What can be real however, are the methodologies involved, such as the brewing of potions, the methods of performing curses and teenage angst. But the curses themselves aren't real.

    However, since it is a religious school, it is his right to ban the purchase and reading of any book of his choice at his school library that may not be in the best interest of his students.

    I wonder how this priest would react to the Necronomicon. Pfft... hahahaha!
    Overnight, a group of students secretly place lots of Necronomicons in the library to scare the priest or piss the priest off.

    It’s a slippery path once set on. Where do you draw the line. By starting on a children’s book as the point of no return. You also limit the scoop of the very people your trying to protect. You’ll never learn from history’s mistakes if you never know about them.
    Censoring anything is wrong in my opinion. It reminds me about the book “The Giver”. I also get a flashback from the original movie “Footloose”. You know who was also well know for banning and burning books Nazis.
    Well that’s what I think anyway.

    In this thread, first time since I joined NUF, I always saw people talking about like limit and what not, now I too can say that I run out of likes to give :blobrofl: (but seriously I run out of like for today)
    Anyway, I agree that those books can summon real demons otherwise there wouldn't be real life magic schools teaching that stuff :blobamused:
