Book ban? Again? What an insult to humanity.

Books banned, again
Five books are officialy banned by Attorney General Office (Kompas, 26/12). They are: "Pembunuhan Massal Gerakan 30 September dan Kudeta Soeharto", "Suara Gereja bagi Umat Penderitaan Tetesan Darah dan Cucuran Air Mata Umat Tuhan di Papua Barat Harus Diakhiri", "Lekra Tak Membakar Buku Suara Lenyap Lembar Kebudayaan Harian Rakyat 1950-1965", (until this, I thought the ban was because these books had painfully long and tasteless titles -- of course I was wrong) "Enam Jalan Menuju Tuhan", and "Mengungkap Misteri Keragaman Agama".
