Harry Potter and the Angry Rottweiler.

On the eve of the Half-Blood Prince, letters are unearthed in which Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, decries the Harry Potter books. “It is good, that you enlighten people about Harry Potter, because those are subtle seductions, which act unnoticed and by this deeply distort Christianity in the soul, before it can grow properly.” Well, if the future pope could handle the Hitler Youth, I think most kids’ eternal souls should be able to weather the Harry Potter tomes just fine.

  1. Pope Sidious should get a life.

  2. Is this really a surprise? My bible-thumping-holy-rolling cousins think that Harry Potter is the Spawn of Satan…but these are people with a high school education who think that they can home-school their children. “And who invited the Radio? Hmmm..Bart?” “The Leader, m’am?” “Yes, very good.”

    There are a host of Catholics who listen to the Pope and follow every mandate of the Holy Father, and then there are those of us Catholics who know that’s 2005, not 1005.
