Pastor wants ‘demonic’ books removed from public library in Cleveland

“A Cleveland pastor wants what he calls “demonic” books pulled from the shelves of the public library. Pastor Phillip Missick of King of Saints Tabernacle, a Messianic church, filed a complaint with Austin Memorial Library, Cleveland’s public library, asking that many fiction books on vampires, demons and the supernatural be purged. He says he was stunned to find the young adult section full of books like “Blood Promise,” “Twilight,” and the “Vampire Knight” series. “This is dark. There’s a sexual element. You have creatures that aren’t human. I think it’s dangerous for our kids,” said Missick.” (via abc13.com)
