  1. #1 Books They Couldn't Write Today. 
    What are some books that simply couldn't be written today due to political correctness? I'm not talking Bronte-style works that dwell on social situations that no longer exist, I'm talking about relatively contemporary books that would never see the light of day due to their treatment of race, sex, religion, or whatever.

    Bethany's Sin, The Stand, and Swan Song.

    Each of these books treat good and evil as factual - not relative. Each examines the male/female dynamic closely and not in a PC way.

    So "The Bible" is out as an option?

    Well, I was looking for more contemporary examples but the Bible would be out.

    "Harrison Bergeron". Not a novel but a completely prescient short story by Kurt Vonnegut.

    None of the Br'er Rabbit stories.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
    C. S. Lewis
