Amorth compared the Potter character to dictators Stalin and Hitler, saying they were possessed by the devil.


Hmm... trying to draw a moral equivalence between the Harry Potter books and the massacre of tens of millions. That is already more disgusting than anything J.K. Rowling might be said to have cooked up.

Harry learns to defeat Voldemort through his own devices, he has little respect for authority, and less for his family, breaks the rules constantly for personal gain, bullies other kids, steals, and doesn't get punished when he deserves it.


Just about the only way I can see how someone would arrive at this conclusion from the books is if that someone were illiterate.

I love Harry Potter. He is surely a great hero from recent English Literature.

In my opinion this thing about "Harry Potter is evil" is for looneys. Harry Potter is a ficticious character. People who read the books are not going to start practising black magic. Besides which only extremist Christians believe in black magic. In other words, black magic is not a threat. Neither is it, or any other magic, real. J.K.Rowling did not write her books with the intent of making people practise black magic, she wrote them with the intent to entertain people (and make money).

One more thing - people who call themselves exorcists are no better than clairvoyants. The are con artists, set out to trick the gullible out of their money. Either that, or religious nutters.
