Statistical analysis of Sin in children's literature

I'm so glad that the Parents Against Bad Books in School have given us a great statistical model to determine the value of a book based on boobies and violence. Instead of looking at the whole book they want parents to judge a title based on the occurences of certain sexual, violent, and other immoral actions. Based on their system a book is dangerous to the minds of our youth because of the content, regardless of the outcome of the situations on the main characters. So, according to the guidelines of PABBIS, the Bible and any book recounting the life of St. Augustine (or almost any saint, really) would be considered a bad book. But of course we wouldn't have problems with the material in religious tracts, just secular matters. Oh, go take a look for yourself.
