Should Christian Parents Ban Books

by Rachel Baker on April 29, 2014

There’s an interesting article over at Old Musty Books about banning books in the home and the everlasting effects that may have on the children.  The semantics of the article title are also discussed.

If we ask the question “should Christian parents ban books” then we are really not asking about the book they want to ban as much as asking about how much do we really want someone else’s religion dictating the lives of our own children. But, if we change the title to “should any parent ban books” – well, then, we are talking about something completely different. And both of these titles need to have the additional words “in their own households” added unless we are talking about actually going to school board meetings with the rest of the villagers with pitch forks and torches to take a book out of the school system for good.
