(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.

Oh, how I wish this piece of Mudblood filth was near me, so I could Crucio her into oblivion.

Aren't people legally adults at the age of 18 in the US?
I remember a lot of "spells" too, from my earliest school year. One begins "Our Father, who art in heaven..." Those have been in my head for more than 30 years.
I also remember lines from children's books that my parents read to me before I started school. It's called memory.

Her memory seems to be working fine. Also, HP is just a series of fictional books. Please calm down.

What? You mean she can REMEMBER things she read from a book?!? How evil! You must burn her to save her! How ever that works...

She's old enough to vote, enlist in the military and risk her life, her peers are going off to college and you're still choosing her reading material for her? Will you be arranging her marriage as well?
