This is laughable, why do parents have to sue everything they don't agree with? It sure seems like this is the case. Good luck getting Harry Potter banned moron.

this is more than suing... this is a christian claiming that a children's fantasy book is an attempt to get kids into evil paganism... ooh... worshiping nature... how ****ing horrible... i'll go pray to a sky god and eat the blood and body of christ instead

Not to be a steriotype or anything but why is it Christian parents have to sue against everything that is non-Christian and has to do with religion, or battle against it. Just stupid.

you don't see jews giving a turkey about this stuff... i'll tell you why.. .its inherent in christianity to look down on all other beliefs and to think that anything but christianity is blashphemy... they look down on jews, and christianity is just the first cult of reform judaism...

generalizations? yes... but, i hoped i wouldn't have to quantify my arguments for those of you who don't have the capacity to talk in broad/general terms and would focus on the semantics of what i said...

wow, that was a long sentence...

Scene from The Simpsons where Ned Flanders is reading the Christian version of Harry Potter to Rod and Todd!

Ned Flanders: And Harry Potter and his magical friends were sent to Hell for practicing witchcraft!

Rod and Todd: Yeaaaa!

HAHAHA, everytime I here someone saying they want Harry Potter banned because its evil I think of that episode from The Simpsons. This mom wanting to ban Harry Potter is an even bigger joke then that scene I just quoted! Anyone who reads that book knows what it is about and knows it is just make-believe!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

WOW alot of generalizations. Religion is probably one of the most volatile topics out there. It ranks right up there with racism and politics. Basically the reasons I stay away from these threads.

However I cannot sit here and read this while it seems as though everyone is bashing Christianity.

Everyone in the world has their own beliefs. Everyone has that right. Well at least they do in the US. I don't think you can lump all Christians together with a group of christian extremists that want to ban a book. It would be like saying all muslims are terrorists. Both are equally ignorant observations and statements.

Religion for the most part is an integral part of every society whether you want to believe it or not. It is pretty well documented that children that are actively involved in their churches regardless of denomination or faith are more stable, well adjusted adn less likely to get in trouble in school or with the law.

If you don't like church don't go. You are always welcome but we are not begging for you to come but don't bash all of us. The vast majority are not extremists.

For the record my church has no problems with Harry Potter and actually encourages the kids to read.
