"...Another quotes the German poet Heinrich Heine, who wrote in 1823: "Where books are burned, in the end, people will also be burned."

"The Heine quote is seen as prophetic, because the Nazis made a great show of burning so-called "decadent" books in the 1930s. They included works by Jewish writers - and soon the Nazis did burn Jewish victims of their racist ideology."


Oh, but here's my favorite:
"...last month the Church released a report documenting sexual abuse of children by nearly 400 Polish priests between 1990 and 2018."

Could the Catholic priests be trying the change the subject? O\:\-\)



Isnt this a bit late. I mean Protestants and Mormons in America started burning Harry Potter books 20 years ago.

Book burning is never good. I can't think of any time anyone rational thought burning a book was good.


I live next to Poland and nobody but oldies listen to the church any more. Your average Pole takes them about as seriously as Americans take all your nutty churches.
