This article is kind of old, but it shows the basics of what people from the neo-conservative, fundamentalist frame of mind are thinking when it comes to Harry Potter. Basically, this crazy fundie from Loganville, Georgia thought back in 2006 that "books that promote evil - as she claims the Potter ones do - help foster the kind of culture where school shootings happen" and that "that would not happen if students instead read the Bible."
And I couldn't agree more... there weren't any guns thousands of years ago... the bible says to stone people, duh.
She also said that "teachers do not assign other religious books like the Bible as student reading."
1. How the hell is Harry Potter a religious text and
2. Yes, they do. I remember being in high school and doing two weeks on the Psalms as literature in my English class.
What a load of crap.
Seriously, read the article or just Google Harry Potter and banned to see what comes up.
