As JK sees it!

The Potter books in general are a prolonged argument for tolerance, a prolonged plea for an end to bigotry, and I think it’s one of the reasons that some people don’t like the books, but I think that it’s a very healthy message to pass on to younger people that you should question authority and you should not assume that the establishment or the press tells you all of the truth. -J.K. Rowling, novelist (b. 1965)

    Some Christians don’t like them because they glorify witchcraft. However, I respect Ms. Rowling for going from rags to riches by using her God-given talent for story telling.

      That is because some Christians have never read them and are clueless about what they say.

      Then again I love The Hobbit and TLOTR. Both have been banned and denounced by so-called Christians. [It might be because the writer was a devout Catholic. Bigotry knows no bounds!]

  2. Trevor Hilton Says:

    TLOTR and the Chronicles of Narnia are a Christian analogies. The analogies are so blantant that even I, who likes to look for bloopers and mistakes but seldom tries to analize them, could see it.

    I sometimes wonder how you and I get along so well with our many differences. But, I thank God we do.

    • The Wombat Says:

      We get along because, we are willing to allow each other their own space and recognize, while we view the world differently, we can accept the fact that there often no right or wrong position.

      Live and let live.

    I think most people who don’t like the books haven’t actually read them or wouldn’t want to read them anyway. I loved that the wizarding world wasn’t as glamorous as it looked in the first book and clearly was NOT a democracy!

    My nephew, though, read the first three and then got distracted by A Serie Of Unfortunate Events.

    You’ ll be pleased to know, though, that he did love The Hobbit – and my brother, who’d spent his life avoiding LOTR, bought the gorgeously-illoed edition when it was going cheap, read it and was sorry he’d missed out so long. 🙂

    • The Wombat Says:

      Didn’t they celebrate the Xmas holidays in the books & movies? Ah ha! Converting everyone to being wizarding Anglicans!

      Yeah! We captured another one! 🙂
