I hear some people, mainly in the States, have been getting up in arms over Harry Potter - saying all that wizardry and magic is polluting kids' minds and turning them away from true religion.

What do you think?

Have you read any of the books?  And if so, did you enjoy them?

Me, I think they're brilliant.  Shame about the films though.  Cool

I, personally, love the books as well. I have all five, but I haven't yet read the fifth one. I hear it's good, though. I didn't think the movies were too bad...I'll stick with the books anyway.

It's a shame that so many people are against the series, really. Depriving themselves of a great fantasy story.

I have yet to get a reply on what makes Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and Pilgrims Progress different from Harry Potter. The Witchcraft in Harry Potter is like the violence on Loony Toons. It is unrealistic. Can a child drop a battleship or an anvil on another Child? No. Can a child fly on a broom and cast a spell causing the playground bully to turn into a frog? No. If you donít support Harry Potter because of the witchcraft, then on top of not reading any of C.S. Lewisís Masterpieces we call Novels, you canít watch Buggy Bunny and the gang!

i'm a huge fan of Harry....have read the first four books 3 times each, and currently reading the fifth book for the second time.  i respect everyone's right to their own opinion about HP.... as long as they've read at least one of the books for themselves and given it a fair shot. i don't understand people who are against something they've never read.

Your antics make me laugh. I know for a fact you've never read the books...You've stated this many times before, so...

You do not need to read it to know the evil of it!

If that's what you believe, you're not going to be able to persuade anyone to do anything, ever. How can YOU judge for yourself, when all you know about it is what other people tell you? Read the books, make an opinion for yourself, then come back and make an educated argument.

Don't act like you know what you're talking about, when all you know is what you've been spoon-fed by other biased, uninformed Christians.

Prove to me that these books are Satanic, or that they promote witchcraft. Heck, give me ONE reliable source that shows an increase in cultic participation since and because of the Harry Potter books, and I'll consider it.

If all you are going to say is something like, "HaRrY pOtTeR iS tEh DeViL!!!11!!1!" then go away.

I believe it says in the Bible (can't seem to remember where) that "Not what enters into a man, but only what comes out of him can make him unclean."

I hate to make another post like this, but I just noticed something...

It's NOT FANTASY!!!!!!!!!!

What the HECK are you smoking? Must be something, if you see flying cars, hippogriffs, and other obviously fake and fantastic things. If it's NOT fantasy, than just what is it? "Witchcraft" isn't a genre of writing, which rules out your next statement ("IT IS WITCHCRAFT!!!!").

The Harry Potter books do not teach children how to perform spells, talk to Satan, and other things that are indeed anti-Christian. All they do is provide a stimulation for one's imagination.

Harry Potter is fantasy. Nothing more or less.

Actually I'd like to know exactly what is evil about the books.

Any thoughts from the 'satanic' crowd?
