Popular Culture: Harry Potter: September 2004 Archives

In lieu of any serious stories, I present Video Review: Harry Potter... Witchcraft Repackaged: Making Evil Look Innocent Also known as Christians vs. Children's Books, Seanbaby's sarcastic look at a Christian anti-Harry Potter video. This remarkable production can be summarised thus:

Thanks to aggressive Pagan marketing, books about witchcraft are no longer found only in secret underground caverns, but in bookstores everywhere. Did you know that kids are using magic spells they learned from Harry Potter to win money, pass school exams, and get boyfriends and girlfriends? The Christians did. Apparently, Neo-Paganism has been discipling [sic] our children into dark cults for years with the help of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed and The Craft. And with the internet, Pagans can now perform rituals with each other online!
