The leading exorcist of Mexico's main archdiocese said the popular Harry Potter book and film series could allow the devil to enter children's minds, and does "a lot of damage".

Even better:


Pope's Exorcist: Harry Potter Satanic

The Vatican's chief exorcist is no fan of Harry Potter.

Father Gabriele Amorth, who is Pope Benedict XVI's "caster out of demons," told Vatican Radio: "Behind Harry Potter hides the signature of the king of the darkness, the devil."

According to the Daily Mail newspaper, he said that author J.K. Rowling's books contain innumerable positive references to magic, "the satanic art" and added the books attempt to make a false distinction between black and white magic, when in fact, the distinction "does not exist, because magic is always a turn to the devil."

***holes. :shakeno:

Those people are just bonkers. I don't see them saying the same thing about Steven King's books which are much more sinister in the wording sometimes.

hmm

Harry Potter is advertised and written as fiction
Passion was made and advertised as the story of Jesus

I don't see a comparison, especially when some controversial "facts" were put in that movie, which was made to be a representation of the truth as Gibson (an antisemitic person btw) saw it.

This is old news. Everybody knows J.K. Rowling wrote the manuscripts for the Potter novels with the blood of sacrificed children on a book with paper made of human flesh while speaking in tongues and her eyes rolled back.

Yeah, a series that has allowed millions of kids to get into reading is truly the work of the devil.

It sounds like they're just pissed because those kids aren't picking up a Bible and becoming close-minded nutjobs.

What "facts" were put in that werent in the bible since you seem to imply that Gibson injected something that wasn't meant to be in the original story

I was asked to step down from the praise team at Church because I took a part in Jesus Christ Superstar. The Minister of the Praise team was also asked to step down, he was Judas. When I was called in by the Pastor and Elders the said they didn't feel it was a good example to the rest of the Church for me to be in this untrue story about Christ. I countered with do you watch the "Ten Commandments" or "The Robe" or "Moses" they all nodded, I said the play is every bit as accurate in story and dialog,... that NONE of them were really true why was this play different.. they had no response, I was dismissed. I have never felt quite the same about Churches.

Man....the idiots just seem to come out of the woodwork now...read what THIS waste of a money shot had to say:

Harry Potter and the Assault on Christianity (http://www.hfxnews.ca/index.cfm?sid=46864&sc=93)


I've even heard some Christian parents express delight that the Harry Potter novels have sparked reading interest in their hitherto literarily indifferent offspring - the implication being that content doesn't matter as long as kids are reading something. Could a similar case be made for reading pornography?


Fantasy it is. But from a Christian perspective, children immersing themselves in Harry Potter are being desensitized to the dangers of spiritual practices explicitly condemned and forbidden by Holy Scripture.


However, Rowling is the the product of a post-Christian, postmodern culture that believes magic, demonology, Wicca, and seances to be completely harmless, and it's quite possible she is sincerely unaware of the inherent dangers of her writing.
For this used douchebag to lump Wicca in with demonology proves that any moron with a pen or a PC can write an article without a shred of fact involved in it. :shakeno:

Wicca IS harmless. The only "harm" it may bring to people like this is that it makes you actually look for answers to your questions instead of blindly following and believing things happen because "it's a mystery". Aside from the fact that the Potter books have NOTHING to do with Wicca. :rolleyes:

one of the most troublesome texts, relative to anti-Semitic potential, that any of us had seen in twenty-five years. It must be emphasized that the main storyline presented Jesus as having been relentlessly pursued by an evil cabal of Jews, headed by the high priest Caiphas, who finally blackmailed a weak-kneed Pilate into putting Jesus to death. This is precisely the storyline that fueled centuries of anti-Semitism within Christian societies. This is also a storyline rejected by the Roman Catholic Church (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Catholic_Church) at Vatican II (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatican_II) in its document Nostra Aetate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nostra_Aetate), and by nearly all mainline Protestant churches in parallel documents . . . . Unless this basic storyline has been altered by Mr. Gibson, a fringe Catholic who is building his own church in the Los Angeles area and who apparently accepts neither the teachings of Vatican II nor modern biblical scholarship, The Passion of the Christ retains a real potential for undermining the repudiation of classical Christian anti-Semitism by the churches in the last forty years.From the Anti Defamation League
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passion_of_the_Christ#Anti-Semitism

so what Gibson put in is controversial. He put in elements that spark antisemitism and has in the past that both the Catholic Church and most protestant churches reject. Hell, this damn controversial passage is probably what caused the damn Holocaust

and coming from him, its hard not to take that as intentional........

like I said, this film was made to be a true story as Gibson saw it, and thats what makes the antisemitism hard to ignore.

In Potter, it is fiction and advertised as a fictional story. Criticizing it is much different than criticizing Gibson

this support is also from a wikipedia article which at the top states that the article has multiple issues such as unverified claims.

If I had a nickel for everyone that has told me that. Every single person I know that disses the books has not even attempted to read them. They have only watched the movies and badmouth the books because of the movies (which are no more than crappy renditions of the books) but everyone that actually gives those books a try tends to like them.
