Conroe, Texas Knows The Temperature That Books Burn

Hard to believe this type of deluded shit still goes on: Parent criticizes book ‘Fahrenheit 451’:

A Caney Creek High School dad is fired up because the Conroe Independent School District uses the book “Fahrenheit 451” as classroom reading material.
“It’s just all kinds of filth,” said Alton Verm, adding that he had not read “Fahrenheit 451.” “The words don’t need to be brought out in class. I want to get the book taken out of the class.”
He looked through the book and found the following things wrong with the book: discussion of being drunk, smoking cigarettes, violence, “dirty talk,” references to the Bible and using God’s name in vain. He said the book’s material goes against their religions beliefs.

Almost makes me want to start smoking.

If I ever visit Texas, I have to remember to stay away from the city of Conroe.

  1. Yeah, I don’t get too uptight about religious things. Oh, well, got to get back to shagging my blow up doll of the virgin Mary. She gives excellent head you know :)

  2. I am doing a research paper on the banning of this book in the Texas school districts and I was wondering if you might be able to tell me where I can find the article quoted above, as the provided link is dead.
