Goodbye Hello Kitty

A group of Polish priests, belonging to the SMS from Heaven Foundation (a Catholic evangelical organisation) have publicly set fire to a whole load of books, claiming that they are sacrilegious and promote sorcery. The books burnt included at least one Potter title by JK Rowling and a copy of the vampire-inspired love story “Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer. Photographs of the ceremony, including one showing priests carrying a large bucket of books through the nave of a church, were posted on Facebook last Sunday.

Other books were consigned to the fire along with an African mask, a white model of an elephant, a book on Tantric Buddhism and a pink "Hello Kitty" umbrella.
