That would be ironic, and poetic.
Alas, in the name of conformity, most partaking in this Book Burning will probably either steal from their Public Library, or pillage the contents of
non-profit Missions and Thrift Stores selling 2nd and 3rd hand merchandise to the poor to get books to take part in their cultural initiation to
belong. That seems to be the Status Quo at most of these Christian Book Burnings.
I know in the past, whenever I caught wind of a Christian Book Burning in my neck of the woods, I would rush to the Public Library to check out the
most likely targets of their burning, lest they would disappear from the shelves forever.
I always thought "Thou Shalt Not Steal" was one of the 10 Commandments, but I guess it is okay when the end justifies the means. Oh, the hypocrisy!
