The Gwinnett County (northeast suburb of Atlanta) mom who can’t stomach that children in America are being subjected to the devilment of Harry Potter has been foiled again. From the AJC:
Since she launched her anti-Potter crusade in 2005, Mallory has taken her case to administrators at the Loganville elementary school her children attend; to a school appeals committee; to the Gwinnett County Board of Education; and to the Georgia Board of Education. She’s lost at each level.
This time out she lost in the Gwinnett Superior Court. And of course, she “acknowledges she hasn’t read any of the six books in the “Harry Potter” series.” Naturally. She’s vowing to get a lawyer and take her case to a Federal Court. I guess she finally heard that old chestnut “people who represent themselves in court have a fool for a client.” See if you can follow this line of reasoning:
Mallory said the school board’s decision to offer the books in taxpayer-funded libraries violates the U.S. Constitution because, she claims, they promote the Wiccan religion. [yet]…”I have a dream that God will be welcomed back into our schools,” Mallory said.
Just not your heathen god.
