The wizarding world is highly conservative.

I am surprised that it wasn't banned by Leftists.

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.

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.)

Not quite what I expected mentioning Hobbits, but that is pretty cool.

They had the characters down pat, but with a comic twist. The lady who played Rosie was delightfully ribald.

I do wish I had been there to see THAT!  No wonder Sam was so entranced by her...  And here I thought his interest in her was so innocent.

You need to have a nice chat with a professional.

LOL, just because of messing around lightly? You're cruel.

You know that violates the Five Exceptions to Magic, right?

Buy it by the case...  Actually, I stopped drinking the stuff years ago, but keep some around for making bread.

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.
