Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

The prickly shell

A Toronto parent is challenging Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale because of its subject matter and because it’s profanity, anti-Fundamentalist Christianity sentiment, violence, and use of sex violates a policy that Toronto School District has regarding respect and tolerance. A book where women are oppressed, forced into reproduction, blamed for men’s infertility, and taught to fear each other – hardly a symbol of respect and tolerance – is being challenged.

Building a shell around ideas that make people think for themselves, think about how religion can be used as a weapon, now that is dangerous.

When you burn books, you burn freedom too.
