Title: Harry Potter magic is REAL!
Post by: Hydra009 on September 02, 2019, 11:42:43 AM
Catholic pastor removes Harry Potter books from school library after consulting vatican exorcists (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/harry-potter-banned-school-library-nashville-tennessee-exorcist-a9087676.html)

Quote
A Roman Catholic school in Tennessee has banished JK Rowling's universally popular series of Harry Potter novels from its library shelves after its pastor took exception to their portrayal of magic, warning the spells and curses the author describes are real and “risk conjuring evil spirits” when read.

Quote
“These books present magic as both good and evil, which is not true, but in fact a clever deception. The curses and spells used in the books are actual curses and spells; which when read by a human being risk conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text,” the Reverend Reehill wrote, apparently in all seriousness

I think this guy's mom cast stupify on herself when she was pregnant with him.  :P

Also, I've gotta say, all that these people are doing by literally demonizing this stuff is making it a hundred times cooler.

Children's book with a cliched chosen one plotline set in a world of wizardry: meh, it's alright

Children's book that shows you how to cast spells in real life: sign me the hell up!

Sorting hat, do your thing!  (Please not Hufflepuff, please not Hufflepuff)

There is plenty of magic in the Bible. Including evil magic where plagues of locust are called up, rivers are turned to blood, cattle die, and the first born of selected groups are killed.

However, if you actually read the HP books you'll note that they observe Christmas and Easter.

Well, in a way it is real.

We all are in early stages. Harry Potter is a fairy tale of a bunch kids and a community beating some variant of Nazis in small scale.

Nazis aren't conservative.  They are competitive progressive ... competitive with Stalinist progressive.  Conservative would be return to monarchy in Germany/Russia.

This is just more "I hate "conservative" as a trigger" therefore if I also dislike potatoes, then potatoes are conservative.  How "atheist" is a cuss word without substance.

Americans were originally progressive, same as France.  But the problem with progressivism is that people want acceleration to utopia, right now!

We differ on what utopia is.  Union in the US Civil War?  Confederacy was conservative.  Aryan master race?  New Soviet man?

Harry Potter is obviously a Christian magician.  So he should be burned at the stake.

Harry Potter is as English as The Hobbits.  Christian overtones all though both.

I met Hobbits when I was in England in the '70s. They were a group of little people who did skits in Piccadilly. Hilarious stuff. The Peelers had to break up the crowds every so often. (I was watching from a cafe they were performing in front of.)

meh..saying something can't be done because you can't do it, doesn't mean it can't be done. It means YOU can't do it. Of course it is impossible to do what they are saying can't be done...but that is exactly what magic implies. That's is why it is called "magic".

Superman cannot simply accelerate from a stopped position in the sky. He cannot hold down that which exerts more lift than he weighs simply standing on the ground. But it is science fiction, no more, no less than the idea of magic.

When Nancy Astor, Britain's first female MP, told Sir Winston Churchill that: "If I were your wife I would put poison in your coffee," Churchill famously replied: "Nancy, if I were your husband I would drink it."

Except that he did not say it, according to Boris Johnson, who writes in a new book on the wartime leader that it is one of many one-liners wrongly attributed to the great man.

The put-down first appeared in a joke of the day column in the Chicago Tribune in 1900, almost 40 years before Churchill's supposed exchange with Mrs Astor.

I was pretty young.  I don't recall any religious controversy.

I Dream of Jeannie inspired and rivaled Bewitched.  In I Dream o fJeannie, the plot arc got tired out when Jeannie left the Major, and eventually reconciled and married him.  The only controversy I can recall is that Jeannie was too scantily clad.  With Betwitched, Barbara Eden who played the lead, grew tired of it and was going thru marriage problems.  The criticism at the time, at the end of their run, is that neither lead portrayed a Betty Friedan style feminist.  The mother-in-law in Bewitched was the closest approximation to that.

The resurgence of Christian Evangelism happened mostly in the 70s, after their runs had finished, in reaction to 60s counterculture.

Small point. Barbara Eden was the lead “Jeannie” Elizabeth Montgomery was Bewitched.

Before Elizabeth Montgomery played in Bewitched, she played Lizzie Borden in ... Lizzie Borden.
