Evangelical and Muslim parents want to ban Harry Potter in classroomWatch
“For many parents, particularly of evangelical Christian backgrounds and sometimes of some Muslim backgrounds, the occult is not something which exists in fiction and fantasy, the occult is something which is a very living – [a] live part of their faith.”
And this news comes on the heels of the Islamic State executing people for witchcraft last week. In 21st century Britain and we still have such absurd and dangerous superstitions.
People don't have the right to not be offended, and nor should they.
Their problem is that they have brought their children up to believe the literal truth of one set of fairy tales and need to make sure they are not exposed to another set lest the children cotton on to the common ground in fiction.
such killjoys -_-
This isn't new, people have been calling for it to be banned for promoting witchcraft since The Philosopher's Stone first came out. The appropriate response now is the same as it was back then- ignore the crazy people.
