These books are banned?

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald – Challenged for language and sexual references.
The Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger – Challenged for being “anti white” and “obscene.”
To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee – Banned due to the words “damn” and “whore lady” 🙂
The Lord of the Flies, William Golding – Challenged because the book is “demoralizing inasmuch as it implies that man is little more than an animal”
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey – Labeling it “pornographic,” they charged the novel “glofiries criminal activity, has a tendency to corrupt juveniles and contains descriptions of bestiality, bizarre violence, and torture, dismemberment, death, and human elimination.” (I’ve never read the book, now I wonder why?)
The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien – Burned in Alamagordo, N. Mex. (2001) outside Christ Community Church along with other Tolkien novels as satanic.

“Banned books week”, promoted by Google Book Search just ended. Check out the complete listing of reasons as to why these and many books are banned.

And yeah, right – Frodo IS the anti-christ.
