Stories that Make Me Shake My head

Here is a selection of stories for your review:

I don’t mind a parent making decisions for their child, but they haven’t the right to infringe on others.

Mom: Assigned book pornography

“DELAND — A mother concerned about what she considers pornography in her daughter’s reading assignment at DeLand High School wants the book in question banned from Volusia County schools.

Vikki Reed of DeBary plans to submit a written complaint today focusing on two passages she finds objectionable in “Cracking India,” a 1992 novel by Pakistani-born Bapsi Sidhwa.”

The Onion Reports the Following

Report: More Kids Being Home-Churched

“Home-churchers create their own services, emphasizing close readings of Old Testament books led by a parent, and sermons that often exceed two hours. Proponents of home-churching argue that, when handed down by family members, biblical teachings take on a more direct, personal meaning. Additionally, they say home-churching reinforces familial bonds.”

This sounds like it should have been in a movie.

“WHITE PLAINS, New York (AP) — A man who caught fire Tuesday in a car crash on a bridge jumped into the Hudson River, then was rescued and taken to a hospital, officials said.”

And in the category of how drunk were you:

“Spokane County Prosecutors are hoping to convict a suspected burglar who allegedly left his naked victim smeared with chocolate frosting.”

That is all for now.
