This person obviously hasn't read the 7th book. :P
Anyway, so we should burn 99.999% of books?

@ Mithcoriel, Sarah Palin might approve of that. ;)

Can someone please provide correct quote from Terry Pratchett's "The light fantastic", 'cause I don't have my book handy? Something about barbarian hero thinking "Many a life was saved by a good book. Thick one's could last you for a few years..."
sugarpie, you are not sweet at all.

This is the Harry Potter that's written by a practising Christian, right?
11/30/2008 9:33:31 PM
@ Mithcoriel: You beat me to it!
I guess we should burn recipe books and books on interior decorating and books about computer programming, since, after all, there's nothing about "what is written in the Bible" in those.

This was standard fare with the fundies I knew as a kid. Unless it specifically glorified Jesus, it was evil, or at least not worth my time.
Life like that must be so boring.

I can only see Rod and Todd Flanders and their knee-jerk-bot mother here.

Not teaching about Jesus = demonic?
12/5/2008 11:46:13 PM
does Harry Potter teach our kids about what is written in the Bible, about what Jesus wants people to learn about? of course not!
Neither do dictionaries, mathematical textbooks, phone directories or instruction manuals. Do you propose to ban all of them?

Attitudes like this were responsible for the loss of huge amounts of Latin and Classical Greek works that was in part responsible for the Dark Ages.

You see, the only work of fiction sugarpie wants taught to children is the bible.
I think that's what she was going for...

Anything not mentioned in the bible = Demonic.
The internet wasn't mentioned in the Bible, but you seem comfortable with using it....

Neither does El Quijote or Shakespeare. Try reading literature, for a change.

Yeah, when you're not reading the Bible you should be reading about the Bible. Literature preceeds it and mostly ignores it, as it should be.
It's just a bleedin' book

So children only need to learn how to please Jesus? No recreation reading at all? How depressing.

"You have to choose between what is good and what is easy." Something like that...
Take care of your friends, honor your family, show your enemies mercy.
Isn't Ms Rowling a Christian?

"it is a demonic, evil tale - not suitable for teaching kids anything"
Yup, pretty much describes the babble all right.

Apparently friendship and courage in the face of evil is something God doesn't want the kids to know.
I suppose the Lord of the Rings is evil too because people use magic?
