Down with censorship!

I hate censorship. It drives me crazy thinking that some fucking religious prude is deciding what i can and can't read, watch, or think.

I completely agree! That's something from out of the dark ages and it amazes me that people are still that ignorant! What the hell could anyone find fault about in Harry Potter anyway?!?

It's just another example of people who think that everyone else should think and do as they do. Idiots!
