Damnit, when are we going to have laws against rampant stupidity?

Another attempt to ban Harry Potter books from a school, brought up by an Evangelical Christian who hasn't read the books, will not read the books and feels she knows all she needs to know from reading Evangelical Anti-Potter websites. At least I read the Bible before calling you a moron. [link via Delenda Est Carthago].

And on that tip, Douglas Rushkoff calls for atheists and non-Christians to take over the Bible (and presumably the Torah and the Koran while we're at it), which is an interesting idea. Certainly I think the Bible is a wonderful sourcebook for ideas and stories but the Fundamentalist reading of it is like a big-print version for stupid people. To believe that the Bible is literally true and is the only way for you to live your life today, well that's just a whitewash excuse for your hatred of whoever you want to hate and you're closing your eyes, not opening them, to the glory of your God.
