Burning Books – Extreme Reaction or Proof of Uncompromising Devotion to God, asks Bob Miller
FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. – August 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Author and Gospel singer Bob Miller (bobmillerwrites.com/articless.htm), a registered Republican, said today that it was not carved in stone that President Bush will meet with Rev. T.D. Turner Sr. of the Jesus Non-denominational Church, Greenville, Michigan and others who have burned or advocate the burning of Harry Potter books. Rev. T.D. Turner Sr., a church bishop, said the congregation “will burn Harry Potter books and other witchcraft items to let the world know that there are true followers of Jesus Christ who will not call evil good.”
“Twenty years ago, Christian parents were most concerned about protecting their teens from the evils of drugs, premarital sex, and, of course, rock and roll music. But in the past decade parents have grown concerned about the staying power of a movement that has gone from underground to mainstream – witchcraft.The modern neo-pagan movement, now generally known as Wicca, is not only more popular than ever with teenagers, it has changed from something only disaffected and loner kids were involved in to something all teens are confronted with. The shocking truth is that in America witchcraft and neo-paganism have become ‘cool.'” – William Wells, in HomeLife magazine.
“It is for certain that the Rev. T.D. Turner Sr., Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council, and Dr. Jerry Falwell are better educated and better informed of the ways of the world than I’ll ever be. All I can do is to welcome Senator Frist who recently joined me and Senator McCain in this little life raft that the Republican Party put us in and cast us off for better or for worse,” said Miller.
“Hey, I’m not complaining. God saw what was happening and provided us with all that’s needed out on the open water to sustain life, and we have wonderful conversations and tons of fun. Senator Frist, welcome. I believe you are going to know more joy and happiness than you’ve known in years.”
“Just because the members of the clergy teach that God works in mysterious ways doesn’t mean they believe it. Are burning books an extreme reaction or proof of uncompromising devotion to God?” asked Miller. “I’ll leave that up to the likes of Rev. T.D. Turner Sr., Tony Perkins, and Dr. Jerry Falwell; but as an author, I sure hope they don’t decide to burn J. K. Rowling along with her Harry Potter books.”
