A Reminder of Christian Idiocy from the 1980s

Tim at Religion is Bullshit! has a great post about Christian groups destroying heavy metal records in the 1980s ("Its number is six hundred and sixty six"). Besides his perspective of someone watching this lunacy happen from outside the United States, Tim's post reminds me that several of my friends' record collections fell victim to Christian extremist parents. I also remember that organized groups of Christians would actually buy these records so that they could destroy them! Anybody else remember this?
