Huckleberry Finn: tales of the Satanic underworld?

In my wasteful work hours today I stumbled upon a blog that lists the common books that are either banned or challenged by the US school system. On the list are such favourites as Huckleberry Finn, Bridge to Terabithia, To kill a mockingbird and Catcher in the rye.

These were some of my most beloved titles growing up (particularly Bridge to Terabithia, which is a fantastic kids books), and life would have been less fun without them.

I can only conclude that we're living in a world soon to be decimated by the religious right.

The Amageddon, my friends, is truly on its way.
