They're about the same mentality as people who banned Noddy and Enid Blyton because they were racist or some crap.
Heard some minister of religion on radio the other night saying Harry Potter was bad because there was magic and fantasy in it and it was very dangerous if people believed things like that. He said people should read the bible instead. Well, there's certainly some competition for Harry Potter there, what with raising the dead and turning water into wine and feeding 40,000 people with a couple of loaves and fishes (a trick Macca's is trying to perfect). Same bloke only reads healthy stuff to his kids, like nature books, and gives them similar movies and TV. Boy, I bet their little eyes light up when Daddy pulls out the old National Geographic instead of Donald Duck, and switches on David Attenborough instead of cartoons. The other kids at school would be riveted next day to hear about the life cycle of the Patagonian tooth fish, not to mention how to make a Tongan nose flute. As the radio bloke said when the interview was finished "That must be a boring household".
