I take real offense to situations where a person condemns a book or person or refuses to read a book for the sole factor that it might "change their beliefs."

That's crap. If your beliefs are so flimsy that a book is going to change them, maybe they need to be changed. You shouldn't stay away from something on the pretense that you might LEARN something about your religion or otherwise that contradicts past thoughts. The bible was a book that was condemned by many, but it's just one book. If your belifes are so strong in the bible that nothing should be able to change them, then you should have no problem reading books that are contradictory. And if your beliefs aren't that strong? Read up on many things. Make an educated decision. If something is going to change your beliefs or influence you thoughts, let it. Otherwise you're just not growing as a person.
