Harry Potter magic is REAL!
« on: September 02, 2019, 11:42:43 AM »
Catholic pastor removes Harry Potter books from school library after consulting vatican exorcists

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!

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?

FDR did bad things.  The question who is doing what to whom.  You want no bad things?  Back to the pram with you.
