What's the Big Deal?

"That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" -2nd Thessalonians 2:12

Harry Potter seems to strike a nerve with those who read that big comic book called "the Holy Bible." I'm trying to understand why. I mean they say the books are involved with real witchcraft, yet I see no references to Tala anywhere in these books. So what are these people talking about?

A site called "Jesus is Savior" has this to say about the Potter books:

"But as wild as children seem to be about Harry, no one is happier about the phenomenon than the old-school Satanists, who were struggling to recruit new members prior to the publication of the first Potter book in 1997. “Harry in an absolute godsend to our cause,” said High Priest “Egan” of the First Church of Satan in Salem, MA. “An organization like ours thrives on new blood - no pun intended - and we've had more applicants than we can handle lately." In 1995, it was estimated that some 100,000 Americans, mostly adults, were involved in devil-worship of some sort. Today, more than 14 million children alone belong to the Church of Satan, thanks largely to the unassuming boy wizard from 4 Privet Drive. Yes, the numbers ARE horrific, but the total sales of Harry Potter books, plus the natural hand-me-down factor where many people read a book that has already been purchased, easily equals or exceeds this staggering figure of 14 million.

"But, most horribly, we see depictions of Satanism that are truly the end of this age. We notice the evil Voldemort drinking the blood of the Unicorn. Not only is drinking of blood forbidden in Scripture, but Satanists do it consistently. Further, this drinking of the blood of the unicorn, (a symbol of the New Age Movement) delivers a very strong message as to how people will relate to and ultimately accept the machinations of the coming Antichrist."

Old school Satanists? Drinking the blood of a unicorn? This is what these people worry about while the Legion of Doom plots their final assault against humanity?!! Here I thought the Marvelites were insane over their concern about Dr. Octopus. In fact, I don't know what's crazier: thinking this Anti-Christ supervillian is going to take over the world with his clever charm or thinking that the Jesus superhero is going to defeat this "evil" without his own plane or the ability to shoot fire from his eyeballs.

But there is one thing I know for certain. If this Harry Potter guy throws his hat in with Lex Luthor or Gorilla Grodd, the Martian Manhunter will find out about it. There is nothing that escapes his sight. We not worry about Potter joining the Legion of Doom or strengthening their sinister goals in some way. What we need to worry about is the absence Superman in our classrooms. Without Him, we are lost.

If we continue to turn on backs on the Justice League, we'll be left stranded- trying to fight off Darkseid all by ourselves. When the Harpies of Apokolips are forcing us all to march in the streets to the drums of Granny Goodness, we'll just see how much time people should have spent worrying about this Anti-Christ jerk-off. Talk about being damned while not believing in the truth for the sake of pleasure in unrighteousness!

And yet, the non-believers are happy to sing songs to their children of reincarnated birds praising the King.

"Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,
Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?"

After I read the first Harry Potter book, I went out and bought a wand. I've been practicing all those spells ever since so I can "cruciatus" DC superheroes. It's funny, but none of the spells seem to work for me. It's like that book is fiction or something. I'm frustrated.

Cruciatus worked great for me...but I keep breaking my wand on impact.

Cruciatus- ha! You'll never make it past Zatanna, Anne.
