What a nutjob, I guess Mickey Mouse is a sorcerer after Fantasia, so lets ban all Disney stuff too.

GET A GRIP people, there is a reason it is called FICTION.

No doubt we need god back in our schools, but we still need freedom of speech. Harry Potter books are great! My son is 13 years old and has read all of the books a few times over, and he goes to church every Sunday, he clearly understands that God is real and Harry is not. This woman should try teaching her children that instead of punishing all of our kids for her own misconceptions! Children don't study witchcraft because of what they read in a book, and they don't kill people because some Led Zepplin song told them too when they played it backwards. Our childrens morals and standards of life are taught at home! Compassion, love and understanding all taught from home, respecting others and human life....HOME! Harry Potter is not raising your children, you are. So instead of trying to regulate what all of our children are reading, just work on your own. Hopefully all the other parents in the world will work on theirs too.

Did she say that this book is going to make children want to turn to witch craft?

The last time I checked only the insane thought they could fly on brooms. I have never seen a voodoo doll work..

I have taught my child the difference between reality and fantasy. FYI Witch craft is fiction people.......not real..get it!
