MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (BP)--After having seen a pre-release screening of the first Harry Potter movie, I left wondering what it was going to take for the church to wake up. The movie appears to be directed to children 13 and younger. For those Christian parents and pastors who have wanted to believe that the Harry Potter books are really not about witchcraft, they are going to be disappointed. Using witchcraft is the way Harry, a child who grew up in an abusive situation, gains power and fame.
MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (BP)--Parents and even pastors who have found the Harry Potter books harmless rely on the fact that these books are fantasy and therefore conclude the witchcraft presented in the books should be ignored.
