So I saw a story today about a local Christian group that is asserting, once again, the evilness of Harry Potter (and how the public libraries are dens of evil liberals that want to corrupt your children). Just thought I’d share it, in case anyone doubted my previous post that Christians* really do this kind of thing. Follow the link for the full story.
A Lexington County public library is poisoning the minds of area children with occultic films which promote witchcraft and “reject God’s Word,” according to a Midlands right-wing advocacy organization.
Of course we’re talking about the wildly popular Harry Potter series, which the group Columbia Christians for Life believes is “presenting to [children] as “good” that which the Bible says is ‘evil’ (i.e., Witchcraft and Wizardry).” The group told supporters via email Wednesday evening that the Cayce-West Columbia Branch Library has been showing the Harry Potter films throughout the month of July, “despite citizen complaints to Lexington County Library officials, and informing two Lexington County Council members.”
* Yes, I know that not all Christians are like this, but they do exist, and they tend to be quite vocal.
