Over the past few years, the extreme right have lost their power in this debate, but they're still out there. Some people believe Harry Potter is really a horrible series that is introducing our kids to devil worship and sorcery. But honestly, what I'd like to know is how many of these people have even read the books. I've got a perfect example. Ever since the books have come out, my pastor's been preaching on and on about how these books will "take us down a road we don't want to go". One day, after another one of his rants, I just got pissed and walked up to him. "Excuse me, but about your sermon today. I've got a question." "Yes?" "Have you even read Harry Potter?" ".......................Well.............no."
I have read all of these books several times, and I have yet to find a single source of evidence supporting this devil worship crap. I mean really, the entire theme of these books - love is the strongest bond, self-sacrifice, friendship - yeah, those are some real devil worshipping ideas right there.
And there are some concrete allegories (I'm not sure if this is the right term) that relate Harry Potter to the Bible, like what happens to Harry in the last book: Harry (Jesus?) gives his life freely, dies, then comes back to life and defeats Voldemort (Satan?)
Honestly, I would like to hear from some of those who believe these books are evil. I've wanted to get into this argument for years now.
