National Library Board bans Harry Potter books, reaffirms commitment to pro-family stance

They will hunt down and eradicate all non-pro-family books.

In a bid to reaffirm its commitment to pro-family values, the National Library Board has announced that it will be removing all copies of the wildly popular Harry Potter books from its shelves, due to their promotion of non-traditional family values.

This move comes amidst growing calls by Singaporean conservatives for non-pro-family literature to be removed from library shelves.

Guy Montag, a spokesperson for the National Library Board, said: “Following a comprehensive review of our book collection, we have discovered that the Harry Potter series contains material that conflicts with our pro-family stance, especially since Harry Potter rejects his heterosexual adoptive parents and instead adopts a homosexual wizard as a father figure.”

The father figure is commonly known in the Harry Potter series as Albus Dumbledore, the gay headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Montag added that other aspects of the series are also of great concern: “For example, the portrayals of crossbreeds like centaurs and half-giants in a positive light suggest that humans can have successful sexual relations with other species.”

“And the fact that a gay man can even be allowed near an entire school of children, much less employed as their headmaster, is to be condemned.”

With over five million books in the library’s collection, Montag said that they are devoting their best efforts toward eradicating any non-pro-family material from its shelves and that no book would be spared from scrutiny.

He added: “While our investigations are still at a very preliminary state, we have recently uncovered another very popular book that contains some strongly anti-family material, including a story about a king having sex with a married woman, as well as another story about a father almost murdering his son because his god told him to.”

“And there are a lot of stories about cutting of foreskin. What’s up with those?”

    Don’t forget about that certain translated book that talks about a certain God advocating the Death of the First-Borns. Doesn’t sound pro-family to me.

    Lord of the Ring, TRR Tolkien popular series, should also be junked. Reason being Sam and Frodo look like gay couple. They journey together, sleep together, and eat together. Sam even carried Frodo on his back and was willing to do anything for Frodo. Gosh!!! sound so GAY!!!. Churches, what do you think? I also noticed there were magazines about birds and fishes, those rainbow color animals….look so GAY too. In fact, PINK color should be banned from Singapore. They symbolised PINK DOT!

    We should definitely also get Sesame Street banned as Bert and Ernie sleep in the same bedroom. And don’t get me started on Snow White! She sleeps in the same bedroom as seven men! That’s not a lifestyle we should be promoting surely! 😉

    This is ridiculous. Harry Potter is a series of good books. THey should not stop children from enjoying such good books. At the rate they are going, The Curious Incident Of The Dog in the Night Time will be gone simply because of Vulgarities.
