Charge to the Rescue!

A bunch of romance readers/writers got pissed off last week due to this article:

And their response was this:

I love reading romances.  I don't consider myself addicted (mainly because I don't read just romances) and, while not as offended as these people, I understand why they're offended.  People made terrible claims about Christian Fantasy and how evil the Fantasy genre in general was.  I was ready to kick some butt too.


I'm glad that these readers and writers were outraged and spoke out.


Of all of the dumb things to make a claim against anyway. . .


No genre is perfect, I'll admit that.  But just because Romance is a successful genre and offers escape from a troubled world doesn't mean you should blackball it.
