Ban the bible
In response to a petition to ban Grand Theft Auto V at Target, Australians created a petition to ban the bible for the same reasons.

Go Aussies!

RE: Ban the bible
Target has withdrawn GTA V from sale.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

No! Making them adhere to their own standards is persecution! Angry

Um no. I played Resident Evil the video game. I also listened to Metallica which had songs about suicide and destruction of property. I am not for banning anything. I am for however, educating people as to the difference between fantasy and reality.

It's not the banning, it's the pointing out of hypocrisy that I find amusing.

RE: Ban the bible
If you're going to ban something for its violence and bad treatment of women, the bible is hard to beat.
They call it 'The Good Book', but it's more like a murder and torture manual.
