According to the link, some Christians are so mad about Harry Potter books they have had book burnings. I have never understood what was so objectionable about Harry Potter books.
As I understand it, the objection comes from the view that reading fiction leads children to see witchcraft as real. I don’t think reading about witchcraft is any more harmful than reading about Mother Goose. Children like to go into the world of fantasy. I suppose story tellers from the beginning of time have told stories of spells and magic.
It is impossible to read about these protests without thinking about spells and magic in the Bible. For their own reason, turning water into wine was a miracle, not magic. So was parting the sea and bringing people back from being dead.
In fact many of the stories in the Bible about such things were know to have been told earlier in stories about other gods or supernatural beings. Why is it OK to have such things from the Bible taught to young children? As the link says, some complaints are about the pot calling the kettle black.
The far reaching success of Harry Potter books and films illustrate to appetite of the public world wide for stories of this kind. They also explain the long running success of the Bible which seems like fiction but is claimed not to be.
It looks like Harry Potter will continue on to be the most successful fictional character of the century.
