Christian Civic League Wants Stephen King Out of Maine's Schools

In the CCL newsletter today, Michael Heath claims that Maine's most famous writer is encouraging "moral anarchy" and working to destroy our society.
[H]ow can schools blame students for learning what schools have tried so hard to teach – that man’s darker urges are to be gratified vicariously through “literature” which promotes violence and moral anarchy? After all, wasn’t King invited to speak at the University of Maine graduation? King’s work is a part of the public schools, in the same sense that wholesome literature was part of the public schools in the not-too-distant past. People have forgotten that as late as the fifties, an evangelist would visit the public schools of Aroostook County each week to present a one-hour Bible lesson.

Is Heath trying to make himself and the CCL look like a joke?

Heath has obviously never read a book - including the Bible.
