(on teaching kids to read)

When they read we must have discernment. I just finished reading the 1996 book, Disney and the Bible. On page 145 it discusses how The Lion King teaches Buddhism. The author uses only King James Bible Scriptures. The Marketing of Evil
(2005) is another book where the author uses only KJV Scriptures.

Oh no. They're on to our top secret plot to teach Buddhist Islamic socialist atheism to the kiddies using lovable cartoon characters.

Allegory for Jesus

In regards to those authors: BULLSHIT [1]
For future reference at book burnings, if any book deserves to burned, it is one that exclusively uses citations from the Bible to prove a point about any topic other than "what it says in the Bible". How heavily indoctrinated do you need to be to not realize how pathetic that is? [2]

1: Proverbs 12:17 (ESV)
2: Matthew 15:14 (KJV)

Every true christian knows that seventeenth century English is the language of god. Just listen to all the fundies pray.

Uh, as someone who knows a lot about Buddhism and a lot more about TLK than he's comfortable admitting, I can say with what I think is justified confidence when I say that I want what you're smoking.

The Lion King teaches Buddism? What does the Little Mermaid teach? Wicca? WTF is wrong with these people?

I almost feel guilty making fun of fundies. This kind of obsession with only pure thoughts has got a be a form of OCD.

This isn't too bad, you should see how these crazy bastards react to non-disney stuff like "Kiki's delivery service"

9/5/2010 10:23:01 PM


"Discernment"... doesn't mean what you think it means.

9/5/2010 10:30:07 PM


I have OCD, it's cool. also to the person talking about Kiki's Delivery Service: It's dubbed by Disney...

You jackass, The Lion King is more an animal-starred retelling of HAMLET than it is a class on Buddhism.

I read Pippi Longstocking when I was a kid. I bet those books are completely free from KJV scriptures.

@ Efrain
Good thing then that I have Kiki in original Japanese, with subtitles in Swedish.
(Or are the subtitles in English? I don't remember. It's not dubbed, that's for sure.)

Hi, you're an idiot.

Yet another example supporting my belief that people who homeschool their children, are for the most part, batshit insane.

And with Scooby-Doo, Satan teaches us that dogs can talk. Burn in hell, Hannah and Barbera!

I love the name of this website.

Yes, because we all know that anthropomorphic animals in Kalahari dessert read and understand a book wrote in the Middle East and translated in England in 1611(to the English spoken then)

And silly me thought that the Lion King taught Hamlet.

How, precisely, do you expect your kids to learn discernment if they're only allowed to read things that conform exactly to one single, rigid point of view?

Actually, Kiki's Delivery Service is a Studio Ghibli film, but Disney did dub it, if I remember right.

You're making it sound as though Buddhism is something to fear and is evil. I heartily disagree.
When was the last time a Buddhist extremist gunned down anyone kneeling in prayer, or blew up an abortion clinic, or flew an airplane into a building?
The last Buddhist extremist I remember set himself on fire as a sign of protest (himself, not someone else).

I like how liberals and conservatives both accuse Disney of being evil for vastly different reasons.

9/6/2010 7:10:24 AM


It's a conspiracy!
