>A good friend of mine, the principal of a charter school in Newark, NJ, was
baffled by an evangelical mother's objection to including _The Lion, the
Witch, and the Wardrobe_ on the syllabus, on the grounds that it was satanic
because it included a witch.
This happened in a small town in western Nebraska a few years back, when the school was going to put on "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" as a play. I remember commenting at that time that: 1) sometimes it's obvious that people haven't read the book they're talking about; and 2) it should have been the *non-Christians* doing the complaining (although, admittedly, there's often a shortage of non-Christians in small ranching communities).
