Harry Potter, Dark Prince of Satanism??
    #2159336 - 12/04/03 09:49 PM (13 years, 9 days ago)

Here is a popular chain email that's been circulating condemning the Harry Potter books as a recruitment tool for witchcraft and satanism! What utter tosh! I can't beleive people actually believe these slanderous claims against J.K. Rowling and her STORIES. Does this mean that all stories involving magic or wizards/witches are actually evil recruitement tools? Come on, where does the stupidity end? Does this guy actually realize how inadvertantly hilarious his email turns out to be!

I actually read parts of a book titled "14 things witches don't want your parents to know!" Very simmilar fear-breeding tatics in this book. Except in this case, it was The wizard of Oz movie being a recruitment tool. The author trys to show you "evidence" to support the case, but the logic is completly transparent, substanceless, and incomplete with a twist of satanic encroachment. Hurts your head just to read it. Anyway, sorry for the long-winded rant. Here's the Harry Potter email.

Subject: Fwd: Harry Potter Books?

This is the most evil thing I have laid my eyes on in 10 years... and no one seems to understand its threat. The Harry Potter books are THE NUMBER ONE selling children's books in the nation today. Just look at any Barnes & Noble or Waldenbook storefront. Go to Amazon.com and read the reviews. Hear the touting by educators and even Christian teachers about how "It's great to see the youth so eagerly embracing the reading experience!"

Harry Potter is the creation of a former UK English teacher who promotes witchcraft and Satanism. Harry is a 13 year old 'wizard.' Her creation openly blasphemes Jesus and God and promotes sorcery, seeking revenge upon anyone who upsets them by giving you examples (even the sources with authors and titles!) of spells, rituals, and demonic powers. It is the doorway for children to enter the Dark Side of evil.

I think the problem is that parents have not reviewed the material. The name seems harmless enough... Harry Potter. But that is where it all ends. Let me give you a few quotes from some of the influenced readers themselves:

"The Harry Potter books are cool, 'cause they teach you all about magic and how you can use it to control people and get revenge on your enemies," said Hartland, WI, 10-year-old Craig Nowell, a recent convert to the New Satanic Order Of The Black Circle. "I want to learn the Cruciatus Curse, to make my muggle science teacher suffer for giving me a D." [A 'muggle' is an unbeliever of magic.]

Or how about the REALLY young and innocent impressionable mind of a 6 year old when asked about her favorite character:

"Hermione is my favorite, because she's smart and has a kitty," said 6-year-old Jessica Lehman of Easley, SC. "Jesus died because He was weak and stupid."

And here is dear Ashley, a 9 year old, the typical average age reader of Harry Potter:

"I used to believe in what they taught us at Sunday School," said Ashley, conjuring up an ancient spell to summon Cerebus, the three-headed hound of hell. "But the Harry Potter books showed me that magic is real, something I can learn and use right now, and that the Bible is nothing but boring lies."

DOES THIS GET YOUR ATTENTION!! If not, how about a quote from a High Priest of Satanism:

"Harry is an absolute godsend to our cause," said High Priest Egan of the First Church Of Satan in Salem, MA. "An organization like ours thrives on new blood - no pun intended - and we've had more applicants than we can handle lately. And, of course, practically all of them are virgins, which is gravy." [Since 1995, open applicants to Satan worship has increased from around 100,000 to now... 14 MILLION children and young adults!]

It makes me physically ill, people! But, I think I can offer you an explanation of why this is happening. Children have been bombarded with action, adventure, thrills and scares to the point Hollywood can produce nothing new to give them the next 'high.' Parents have neglected to see what their children are reading and doing, and simply seem satisfied that 'Little Johnny is interested in reading.' AND... educators and the NEA are PUSHING this crap with NO WARNING as to the effects or the contents.

Still not convinced? I will leave you with something to let you make up your own mind. First the URL to read some background of what I have given you: http://theonion.com/onion3625/harry_potter.html ( Harry Potter Books Spark Rise In Satanism Among Children ) and finally, a quote from the author herself, J. K. Rowling, describing the objections of Christian reviewers to her writings: WARNING: THE FOLLOWING QUOTE CONTAINS HIGHLY GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS OF A PORNOGRAPHIC NATURE AND SHOULD NOT BE VIEWED BY MINORS!

"I think it's absolute rubbish to protest children's books on the grounds that they are luring children to Satan," Rowling told a London Times reporter in a July 17 interview. "People should be praising them for that! These books guide children to an understanding that the weak, idiotic Son Of God is a living hoax who will be humiliated when the rain of fire comes, and will suck the greasy **** of the Dark Lord while we, his faithful servants, laugh and cavort in victory."

My hope is that you will see fit to become involved in getting the word out about this garbage. Please FWD to every pastor, teacher, and parent you know. This author has now published FOUR BOOKS in less than 2 years of this 'encyclopedia of Satanism' and is surely going to write more. I also ask all Christians to please pray for this lost woman's soul. Pray also for the Holy Spirit to work in the young minds of those who are reading this garbage that they may be delivered from its harm. Lastly, pray for all parents to grow closer to their children, and that a bond of sharing thoughts and spiritual intimacy will grow between them.

In service to the Lord Jesus, His honor and glory,
Roger Lynn

Col. 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

2 Thess. 9-12 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

You can tell that it is either extremely fake or that guy is extremely stupid. Come on, he used "The Onion" as a source. I hope no one is that ignorant, even though I know there probably are many people who are.

You would hope so! But alas I fear it isn't. as i remember flipping throught channels once, and one was talking about Harry Potter so I stopped to watch, and they were saying the same stuff without as much drama as the email above. They really believed that Harry Potter was evil and would somehow entice children to a life of blasphemy. I've heard of organized book burnings by churches, all kinds of stuff. So basically what i'm saying is that this idea goes beyond just the email above, and there are a lot of people, uber-christians, that think it's pure evil.

Just do a web search with Harry Potter and the Devil or Satan, and you'll see that this is a frightengly common belief.

It's obviously a joke making fun of the people who have actually been protesting Harry Potter because it teaches paganism.
It's pretty funny.

Yeah, I'd have to say that the email is a joke simply because NO ONE in their right minds
could possibly use the Onion as a source without realizing what they were doing.

But that actual evangelical site... Eek! It's creepy to think that people like that actually
exist. I take comfort in knowing that people like that are so intensly stupid that it's
extremely doubtful they'll ever affect my life in way. *Sigh of relief*

I am a Christian, and I come from a family of zealous Christians. You know that "kitchen witch" that some people hang, or used to hang, in their kitchens? IT'S A SYMBOL OF SATAN!!

Harry Potter? SYMBOL OF SATAN!!

Rock music? If you play it backwards, SYMBOL OF SATAN!!

I could go on and on, but I think you catch my point. I think there are people who are so shaky in their faith, that they are afraid to let anything into their world, lest they be over-taken by satan.

Um, I am not too close to my family any more. I'm very different from them.
