“Twilight” = Satan

I haven’t read any of the Twilight books or seen any of the movies. But their popularity has been a Godsend for the economies of several Washington towns that had fallen on hard times, particularly Forks and La Push.

But along with financial success comes the wrath of the inbreds.

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, along with J.K. Rowling (for the same reason), is one of the top complaint-generators among the Salem Witch-hunting community. The Twilight series was number five this year on the American Library Association’s annual list of “challenged” books.

This list also includes To Kill A Mockingbird, The Catcher In The Rye, The Color Purple and other threats to America.

Some things never change...

Yes, any bookm that doesn't present a constant Christian worldview is perceived by the Christiansane as a threat, as it may cause readers whom understand that if the Twilight series has fantasy Werewolves and Vampires, then maybe those serpents and demons are as fantastic as well.

All this could be fixed with just publishing every book in Texas..Then everything would be the same. Of course I said this tongue and cheek.

That surprises me, considering Meyer is a known Mormon and these books are tame when you compare them to say Laurell Hamilton's vamps and supernatural beings. Me myself, I don't like the sparkly, being able to go in the sun vamps. I want mine twisted, sexy and not full of teen angst. That all being said though, do these people have nothing better to do than complain that people are reading? It seems every other day, there is a new injustice some ass boil has to get the party panties into wads about.

Huckleberry Finn was another banned book in some states, can't have a black and white as leading characters who were actually friends. Those nuts make me want to read anything they're against.

Sparkly vampires? Well hell, maybe this tripe should be banned! Go, Jesus, go!

Lew: LOL, good point. Wouldn't want readers to start making connections like that now, would we.

Tim: The Texas version of Twilight or Catcher in the Rye -- the mind reels.

Jess: I didn't know she was a Mormon. I haven't paid much attention to the whole phenomenon; I'm just glad she's revived some of the local economies. And unfortunately, some people have absolutely nothing to do and all day to do it.

Holte: Yup, Huckleberry Finn was another one. Mixing of the races? Bah!

Randal: The Bible should be banned too. It's full of gory violence, harlots, men laying with other men.

This really is a tempest in a teapot. Who the hell cares? If you don't like that stuff, don't read it!

Often times there are huge inconsistencies with some of these same people that insist the wizardry and witchcraft in Harry Potter etc is evil, and yet they don't think twice about the same magic in Beauty and the Beast, or Cinderella that they let their kids watch.

Frankly, there are about 100 million more important things on my list than this nonsense.

Really, I find that strange considering that "Twilight" was written my a mormon with the express intention of creating a chaste love story for modern teenagers that embodies select fundie principles.

They're also poorly written books but quality of the literature has never mattered to the fundies.

Randal, I had the misfortune of taking my oldest nephew to the first movie and yes the vamps she writes about, can go in the sun and instead of burning up, they sparkle like diamonds.

Tom, I have not read any of them either and the only movie I saw was the first one. The ONLY reason I did that, was to take my oldest nephew, since his mom and dad were not able to. It is about 3 hours of my life I will never, EVER get back EVER. I want my vamps sexy, down and dirty and just bloody, not flirty and sparkly thank you very much :) AYUP, she is very proud of her religion and the fact she can write such tame vamp romance novels for the tween population. They certainly do have too much time to complain. Me, I am just happy kids are reading, whether it is this or classic lit, they are still getting into books and enjoying them.

I just love "Wrath of the Inbreds"...if I ever write the screenplay for a bad horror movie, that is definitely going to be the title!

T: I agree the whole thing is a tempest in a teapot. I probably wouldn't have even posted about it except that her books and movies have revived some of the local depressed economies.

Thomas: If anything, quality writing probably infuriates the Fundies more than anything.

Jess: Good point; if kids are reading, that has to be a good thing.

J: Cool. I'm looking forward to your screenplay :)

Marquis, I would be happy to collaborate and help with your screen-play sir! :)

Can you imagine what we would create coming from different ends of the political spectrum? lol!

Another CIA mind fuck to "stimulate" one base or another.

Interesting how one of descendents of the Bavarian Illuminati - the OTO of Crowley fame claim to have major influence over US "culture" and government.



Fascism without a doubt has an occult component to it, whether one believes in such stuff or not.
