And I thought 'book-burner' was just used as an insult to point out fundie's controlling attitudes about censorship. Apparently, Elijah2 wants to prove me wrong.

OH NOS NOT VAMPIRE BOOKS
6/28/2007 5:37:04 PM
Hmmmm, Illiteracy for Jesus award?
6/28/2007 5:52:35 PM
"Illiteracy for Jesus" seconded. "Fahrenheit 451 Award" could also work.

I've read vampire books before and nothing happened. Guess that would make you...WRONG!

Keep them scared--keep them faithful
Classic cult mentality.

Why must fire be involved? At the very least, you can shred them (although that's still nuts. If demonic power can be attributed to something simply because of FICTIONAL (90% likely in this case) SUBJECT matter, I'll eat my shirt.)

What are those funny marks on your neck?

Fire is not godly, either. Fire is more closely associated with Satan than with God. (Hellfire? Fire and brimstone?) Thus, setting something on fire is an act of glorifying Teh Debbil.
Elijah, you sinner!

After you burn those books hadn't you better sacrifice a virgin just to be sure?

@ The Missus --
There's also G-d destroying cities with fire, angels with flaming swords, the burning bush, etc. Even the eternal torment by fire of anyone who's not enough of a True Christian is, in that cosmology, done at the orders of G-d for His entertainment and the entertainment of the True Christians.

I AM THE GOD OF HELL FIRE... AND I BRING YOU................

Book-burners need to be killed with fire, but slowly. They must not be allowed a quick death by smoke inhalation. </angry librarian>
6/28/2007 9:13:45 PM
KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!!!!111!!!!!eleven factorial
And for his next trick, Elijah2 will burn random innocent women for being witches. Boy, isn't paranoia and anti-intellectualism fun?
6/28/2007 9:35:34 PM
Ok... here's a deal:
If you want to burn books, we get to burn you first. If your God decides you're pure enough to survive that, you can do whatever you want.
What's that, you don't want to do that anymore? Why, afraid you aren't as pure as you thought? o.o
6/28/2007 9:50:16 PM
Yes, because as we all know, fiction is evil. Jeez.
6/28/2007 9:52:29 PM
You gotta wonder what's being pumped into these kid's heads when a normal nightmare from reading something scary at bedtime is blown into an attempted satanic possession and demonic attack. This kid is scared as shit of her own shadow, and these fools at Christian forum are feeding that from their own paranoia.
6/28/2007 9:55:23 PM
When you start to get into compulsive burning, things are bad.
6/28/2007 10:45:54 PM
Are these Vampire: the Masquerade sourcebooks? if so, I'll take them off your hands. Those things are out of print now and if I can keep from paying top dollar, all the better.
6/28/2007 11:04:57 PM
Ah, book burning. Truly the mark of an enlightened, civilised being.
6/28/2007 11:21:45 PM
Funny thing is, the Vampire books don't make claims to be true. They are admitted fiction. So you are following one book of fiction that doesn't like other books of fiction. If you could only understand how ludicrous that is.
Your life and your actions are all built around a framework of complete fiction.

So which books exactly are acceptable to bring into the house except as kindling? I wonder if Elijah2 would like for me to burn my Darwin, Sagan and other science? How about Tolkien for that matter?
P.S. I'd like to say a little something to my voyeur fellow employees who feel the need to pry into my private life in general and my internet posts in particular. (yes I mean you c.k. and t.g. among others)
"f#$k you! Eat s@#t and die!"
6/29/2007 1:00:18 AM
Damn that Bram Stoker, bringing demons into our houses like that!
