Maybe Marx was right! Or, we're back to the Middleages.
It appears to me, when I watch this kind of nonsense, that Karl Marx was right when he said the religion is people's opium. How can they be so blind? Harry Potter teaches so much about values. Bravery, friendships, anti-racism, fight for freedom... Maybe they are afraid of the fact that values can be taught outside religion too. Sometimes even better. The level of tolerance Harry Potter shows - he befriends mudbloods, house elves, half giants, giants, werewolves,....- is much higher than that of activists from certain churches. If you think about it, it was Christians who burned witches, not the other way round. And it was Christians who massacred a great number of Native Americans, both North and SOuth of the Equator. And it was Christians who killed 6 million Jews and 6 millions Muslims, gays, political, Jeovah witnesses opponents around 60 years ago. And I take Christians as examples, because every big religion has been intolerant of other ideas. Harry Potter is a nice movie to watch with kids - I'd say- 10 and up.
