Book burning has a checkered legacy, to put it mildly.
To put it bluntly, book burning is anti-intellectual, anti-democratic and harmful to the free exchange of ideas.
But a North Carolina pastor has other ideas. To him, the King James version of the Bible is the only proper Bible. It's God's true Word, he claims, never mind the fact that it was translated by some very fallible human beings.
Other Bibles, the preacher says, can and should be burned. They are (get this!) "Satan's books." Even Billy Graham's books, the church says, are tainted and should be burned.
We not members of this North Carolina congregation, of course, but AT strongly disagrees. We stand for openness, debate, and the honest search for truth, even spiritual truth.
Our advice: Leave the other Bibles and books alone. Let these books stand or fall in the court of public discussion and debate.
