If you have any books or music to donate, please call us for pick-up. If you like you can drop them off at our church door anytime. Thanks.
Actually, it almost sounds like fun. We Americans don't have enough bonfires, and in its own weird way there is something extraordinarily striking about the very idea of eating good fried chicken and fixings while singing hymns around a Halloween bonfire of Bibles and Gospel music CDs. Chesterton or (perhaps better yet) O'Connor could write a stunningly good story about it. And, despite being a bit of bibliophile, I am pretty much indifferent to bookburning as such; I don't regard it as seriously different from any other form of symbolic protest, and while I think such protests are usually silly, there are worse things. But I always wonder where they are getting the books. Surely Amazing Grace Baptist Church isn't recommending that people steal the books first; but how many people attending a church like Amazing Grace are going to have handy copies of Westcott & Hort, or the writings of Mother Teresa and the Pope?
