Okay, well first off please don't flame, spam, or send exploding notes via email or personal tells because I put a Harry Potter question in a Naruto forum.
But I would like to know exactly why some members of the Christain faith are against Harry Potter and believe it to be evil incarnate?
If we want to be technical about the storyline I could say that Harry Potter is a book about an orphaned boy who's been rescued from persecution and oppression at the hands of the only family left to him, to go on and be introduced into a world full of magic. Each book is an introduction to a new term at the wizarding school that Harry attends(Hogwarts) and the new people and problems that go with it. Besides having such creatures like unicorns, mermaids, ghosts, centaurs, goblins, three headed dogs, and dragons, the book is full of humans that posess the ability to cast magic(witches and wizards). Harry's nemesis in the book is the most feared wizard in the world(Voldemort), who we find out was the one who kills Harry's parents and gives him the infamous scar on his forehead.
These books are great to read and I enjoy sharing them with my son and daughter. My problem is that the churchgoers feel that they must protest against it and some even go as far as to say that the devil created it. If these get my son to stop sitting in front of the tv long enough, I'm all for them(this summer he discovered the Naruto manga)! And last time I checked the books were a good use of an english mother's imagination, which God gave us. So what seems to be the problem?
