For one Michael Servetus  on October 27 1553 burned at the stake with his books by John Cavin.

As I recall, he was burned with the last know copies of his own "heretical" writings, not those of John Calvin. Calvin was one of those who had opposed Servetus' (unitarian and anti-infant baptism) views.

Opps, yes I did leave out a comma.  Servetus and his books, were burned by Calvin.

Of Servetus's major work "Christianismi Restitutio" (which was burnt with him). 

He had 1,000 printed and there are 3 known copies to exist.  It has finally been translated into English as.

The restoration of Christianity; an English translation of Christianismi restitutio, 1553 by Michael Servetus

Policing what others can read, and burning books - two of my least favorite things!

What, are we suddenly back in 1933? I really thought that this could not happen again.... I am absolutely disgusted!

Incidentally, it was Heinrich Heine who made the statement of 'Where they have burned books, they will in the end burn people ' in 1821.

I know. Unfortunately, this part of history just keeps repeating itself-no matter how much I wish that it wouldn't. It is criminal to destroy any book-I don't care what it is about.

Library fight riles up city, leads to book-burning demand
Everything else aside, who in this day and age thinks a book burning is going to help their cause?  Isn't it pretty much universally accepted that anyone burning a book is a complete whack job?  

(I mean, univerally accepted by everyone except their fellow whack jobs, of course.)

Or am I just a naive idealist?

Yeah, but a lot of these people live in a self-imposed bubble - the only people they talk to are those that agree with them, etc.  And everyone else is Satanically influenced.

So the idea that there are moderate, intelligent people that they're driving away with their crazy - they don't even SEE the moderates.  It's "with us or against us" on everything.

Library fight riles up city, leads to book-burning demand

My favorite quote from the article:

Quote
The claim, unconnected to the Maziarkas, says the book "Baby Be-bop" -- a fictional piece about a homosexual teenager -- is "explicitly vulgar, racial and anti-Christian."

Racial?  RACIAL?

Screw it.  I'll just leave it at "I love librarians."

Brina

ETA:  I think they should rename "The Christian Civil Liberties Union" to "The Christian Civil Liberties Union...for Christians".  Gotta be specific about who those liberties are for...
