A Texas pastor is leading a campaign to have books about vampires pulled from Cleveland’s public library.
Phillip Missick and other religious leaders have called on the Austin Memorial Library to remove books about vampires, demons and other magical beings from the teen section.
“This is dark. There’s a sexual element. You have creatures that aren’t human. I think it’s dangerous for our kids,” Missick, a pastor at King of Saints Tabernacle of Cleveland, told KTRK.
Missick is circulating a petition that requests that the “occultic and demonic room be shut down, and these books be purged from the shelves, and that public funds would no longer be used to purchase such material, or at least require parents to check them out for their children,” according to the Cleveland Advocate.
He claims there are 75 books in the library that deal with the occult, including the Twilight series.

OH BOY! It's time for an old fashioned book burning! Let's burn all those books that no one is reading anymore since we all have the internet (and book reading apps). because they are corrupting our youth (of yesteryear). Man this pastor really has a finger on the pulse of what youths like these days doesn't he?

What's the betting that this pastor hasn't actually read any of the books and has no real idea what they're really about?
