Dearest trent,
Yes I get it, a godless atheist can warn against exposing the Harry Potter series to children but a Christian can't. Says a lot about you.

That's very dangerous Jim. You thinking that all children can separate fact from fantasy. Many adults cant's even do that. Jim, the occult is not fantasy, your Bible tells you how dangerous it is. Please don't encourage children to read books full of it and please don't attack Christians that don't want their children exposed to something that your Bible warns against.

So, better steer the kids away from
Marvel comics
Fairy stories
Halloween
Nursery rhymes
Hannah-Barbara cartoons
Most Disney films (could be guilty of animistic influence...)
Bewitched...that Samantha was a devil;
Come on...these categories are no more occult than Harry Potter.
You DO know that much of what we call occult was a warped understanding of Christology, don't you?

And there you go again attributing things to me that I never said.

Try reading back through the thread before you post anymore fiction.

You, for starters.

Hence the number of religious believers out there

You might want to quote the actual chapters in the HP series which deal in the occult and then explain how these chapters are in some way dangerous

Thing it, it appears that quite often they are attacking out of ignorance. Its one thing to say, "I don't want my child to read that" where the adult has a firm grasp of the facts and is able to explain rationally why they feel that the subject matter is inappropriate for their children at that stage, but if they are justifying it as you are, then they clearly have no firm grasp on the subject matter
