That analogy is a bit of a stretch. I don't think a belief that sugar cures cancer and a belief that ebooks are convenient and enjoyable methods of reading are intellectually equal.
Whether or not we have a duty to disabuse people of foolish notions (and, if we do, I need to spend a lot more time at my local places of worship), I don't believe that a fondness for ereaders qualifies as a foolish notion, so it is not necessary to come and point it out.
