Pope Opposes Harry Potter Novels - Signed Letters from Cardinal Ratzinger Now Online

Like the Potter series needed a further sales boost...

Let's face it, if the Pope doesn't want young people to read Harry Potter, that's just going to make more of them want to. And what are the odds he's actually read any of the books? I'm going to guess... million to one?

It is good, that you enlighten people about Harry Potter, because those are subtle seductions, which act unnoticed and by this deeply distort Christianity in the soul, before it can grow properly.

I think it is the clear establishment of good and evil in fantasy that the Pope must be objecting to, because when you're the head of an organized religion that protects child abusers from prosecution, you want to muddy that line as much as you can. 'Cause I'm guessing that a priest forcing an altar boy to blow him is something that would be more likely to deeply distort Christianity in the soul.
