Quote# 58242

(not that we needed any more proof that the Rapture Readians are batshit insane, but...)

I allowed my oldest daughter (she was 18 at the time) to make her own decision about the Harry Potter books, because when she first started reading- I knew nothing about them. After the first two books-- she brought the stack of books out of her room and said she didn't feel right about reading them, because she was remembering all the spells that were done in the books at random times. She would be sitting somewhere doing something totally unrelated and she could remember every word of the spells in the books just out of the blue. It scared her. We got the books out of the house-- and we had prayer over our home--and over our daughter. She says that even now, she still has thoughts about some of the spells in those books that she read. It's been over a year since she read them. I've encouraged her to just pray-- every time one of those things enters her mind. God is stronger than any seed that may have been planted in her mind from a book.

Eraso Stupido!

Wait... those spells are fictional.

2/9/2009 12:45:03 AM


Yeah, memory works like that.

2/9/2009 12:48:30 AM


Avada Kadavera! I don't care if I spelled that wrong. It won't work.

2/9/2009 12:49:10 AM


Can someone try the killing curse on this one?....

2/9/2009 12:50:19 AM


I suppose if you live your life according to the fictional nonsense in one book, you'd be threatened by fictional nonsense in another. Fucking idiots.

I remember simple lines!? Oh noes! It must be evil!!! Ah! BURN THEM BOOKS OF SATAN!!! BURN!!!

2/9/2009 12:53:09 AM

How? How could people possibly think that the spells in those stories are real?

2/9/2009 12:54:15 AM


"Wingardium leviosa"... not that hard to remember, and a lot of the "incantations" were quite catchy, and all were a maximum of two words, really.

I suspect there's more to this story.

2/9/2009 12:54:24 AM

Oy Vey!

Congratulations! You've just raised another brain dead fundie!

P.S. Magic isn't real.

...She "allowed" an 18-year-old woman to "make her own decision" about reading Harry Potter books?

Oh crap. These have got to be homeschoolers.

2/9/2009 1:04:43 AM


You know who else did magic? Jesus.

2/9/2009 1:04:47 AM


Oh geez... those spells in those books are fake, any real pagan can tell you that.

Plus I remember lines from books and movies such as those on A Nightmare on Elm St. Does this mean that I can get possessed by Freddy Krueger?

The stupid is strong in this one.

2/9/2009 1:53:00 AM


I really don't get it. If they truly fear these spells, they must think they actually work... which would make JK Rowling more powerful than God since she made spells that actually do stuff.

You "allowed" a grown adult to read a book? How kind of you XD

2/9/2009 2:04:08 AM


I sometimes randomly remember the scientific names of various animals (somewhat more obscure and difficult ones -- Oreailurus jacobita, e.g.). Oh no! Scary demonic influence!

I haven't read the books myself so I can't say for sure, but if that's what she's remembering, there's probably some built in mnemonic, like rhythm and/or rhyme.

2/9/2009 2:04:20 AM

Observable Reality

If you're such a mouth breathing dullard that remembering one or two word "spells" is evidence of Satan to you, you better be wary of actors--they remember pages and pages of lines and can recite them at command.

Incidentally, how is that any different from the people who can quote Biblical verse from memory?

2/9/2009 2:06:49 AM

Oh noes! My 18 year old daughter read a fictional book!

You allowed her? Oh, that's right, a woman (no matter what age) is always someone's property be it parents or husband. How silly of me to forget that.

"God is stronger than any seed that may have been planted in her mind from a book."

'God' is stronger than himself?

2/9/2009 2:08:54 AM


Meh. This one was too lazy to lie for Jesus, she just exaggerated for Jesus. Sad how teh fundee crazee destroys whole families. Her kids are probably as insane as she is, and equally unfit for life in the real world.

God is stronger than any seed that may have been planted in her mind from a book.

Then why do you worry about it so?
You don't really believe it, do you?

2/9/2009 2:13:04 AM


You know that your god put curses and shit on people, right? What's the difference.

2/9/2009 2:15:02 AM


Congratulations on raising retards for Jesus.
Now get me my goddamn fries.

Dr. Funkenstein

Crap. Are fundies getting to the point they think unpleasant memories are of the devil?

2/9/2009 2:17:12 AM


So memory is bad too?
