A suburban Georgia mother of four, Laura Mallory is petitioning her local school board to ban the Harry Potter books from their libraries because the fiction series is attempting to lead children into the modern witchcraft religion of Wicca. The board of education is not having it and has responded with the fact that if these books were removed, all books that referenced witches would have to be removed including titles like Macbeth and Cinderella. This is the same county that earlier this year came under fire after it decided to cut funding of Spanish language fiction books. The move was made when residents complained that they didn’t want their tax money going towards something that might be entertainment to illegal immigrants. The decision was reversed three days later.
