Your an idiot.....if your going to have a debate talk facts, dont talk about something youve read in a book that has been rewriten, added to, and taken from, Paganism was around a very long time before your Gods son even existed...haa...maybe Im crazy but how could be be useing your Devils power for our own benifit if your devil didnt even exist at the time...haa...uh you poeple just keep going around in circles....you see I know your going to comment back on this with yet another bible verse trying to prove me wrong...but you see as long as you use your bible to defend your faith you wont get any futher than you have now...why..because most everyone here ALLREADY KNOW YOUR BIBLE'S WORD STUPIED....
You been following this thread a while. I know there are probably a lot of you who are. You all want to defend what you believe your best attempt in centuries to hurt children. That's fine. I full well know what is afoot here. But to your agnast. Some of your coven members will be convinced to christ. For God is stronger than your master. You can call me all the names you want. We still win in the end. Your master and all those lesser gods are defeated. And there destruction is rushing towards them. Gods love and offers and promises are too great to be ignored. Especially in the face of the alternative. Inclusion in satans fate only reserved for him. Paganism didnot exist before God. That is a ridicules claim.

I've read and seen enough to know they are trash and harmful. I don't have to look at an xxx rated movie to know it should be avoided. Same with the potter series.

There is so much wrong with this, I just can;'t sit back and let the ignorance continue.

Rowling is Christian. She wrote a fictional story to sell and entertain. That's it. You don't like it? Don't read it.

We don't want to hurt children. Stop outright lying about us. I believe there's some bits in the Bible about bearing false witness you may want to look into.

We do not all belong to covens. We do not believe in or unknowingly worship Satan any more than you believe in or unknowingly worship Zeus. You know, that god who lived on Mt. Olympus a few thousand years before Christianity was ever established?

Stop pretending to know God or Satan, or anything about our souls. That's hubris. Unless you've seen Satan, talked to him, and can prove conclusively that you have, you are simply making stuff up. More false witness AND slander.

Gods, seriously, what is your problem?! Is it is really so bad that people believe differently than you do? It doesn't effect you in anyway. We don't care if you're Christian, we care if you bash us, which is what you are doing! Jesus wouldn't do that. He preached love and acceptance. Why aren't you listening to him?

Someone needs a little trip to religioustolerance.org ...

Oh forget it. Never mind. Forget I ever posted anything. If you put children's books on the same level as porn, there's no reasoning with you. You don't want reason, you wanna feel better than everyone else.

That's one slippery slop you're on. Have fun with that.

well i agree about the porn thing but you can't lop a children's book in with that. You would have to be one of the most narrow minded people on this planet its ok that you don't want your children read them, but i hope you know what an oxymoron front you're putting up. Its like telling your daughter,"sweetie, its not ok to read harry potter but believing in fairy godmothers and pixes is ok." WAKE UP!!!!!

My power is not to do stupid things like change my hair color, but for important challenges like improving myself and helping others. I have done some amazing things with my magick with the help of the God and Goddess, not any demons or the devil. I do not need the mercy of your god.

OH NO!!! I was never a Christian! Oh no, I am devastated! Not! I was born and raised in a Christian home, have read the Bible many times and used to have a testimony of Christ before I started thinking for myself. Whether you or your god think I was ever a real Christian does not matter to me. I am now Wiccan and quite happy in my path. I wish you success on your path and your walk with Christ.

I definitely am narrow. Jesus said enter thru the narrow gate for wide is the road and broad is the gate that leads to destruction and many enter in. But narrow is the road that leads to life and only a few find it. You dag on right i'm on the narrow road. You should be as well.

You admit it. It is not your power. You must invoke some spiritual force other than God. You are a witch. You may not recieve any of the mercy you say you don't need. Time will tell. I hope for your sake your testimony is false.

<quoted text>Who is us. I thought you were pagan or buddhist. Was anyone talking to or including you. Second this rowlings lady is not christian(you will know them by their deeds.) And no one is bashed here. Those comments to the lies of devilish minds who lie and speak the lies of the bible not being true and other points in direct response. If you don't like firefights don't start them. Second Jesus did speak that way when dealing with devils and devilish mind sets. He said who warned you vipers to flee the coming wrath. He also said on occasion you brood of vipers. On another he said you are children of the devil. And he said when satan lies he speaks his native language. You don't know Jesus or God very well. I don't expect you to you don't believe.
You are talking about pagans, so YES you are talking about me. I will defend my brothers and sisters who share my faith against vipers like you who lie about us.

Anything not Jewish, Christian, or Muslim is pagan. That's what the word came to mean after the early Christians took hold.

I ascribe to Buddhist teachings as well to try and attain inner peace and do good on earth... So that I may be known by my good works.

And yes, you will know them by their deeds. You are no Christian if you preach hate and lies about other people.

Leviticus 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the LORD.

That sounds a lot like preaching love.

Calling us evil devil worshipers is BASHING!

Like i said truth uncovered. You were never a christian is a true statement. Being raised in church or reading the bible doesnot make a person a christian. Many have believed that possesing scripture and knowledge gives life. It doesnot. It is accepting what is written and being chosen an accepted by God that counts. God knows it all in the beginning. He knew of your rebellion in the former age and he knew you would return to it once you matured. Proving His first judgement correct. You just proved in days what God foreknew all along.

You know, magickmom, You're right. I concur with this statement.

Scott, I do indeed wish you luck on your journey to God. I believe that you are a good person despite the fact you think people of a different faith are evil. One day, I hope you understand that isn't true.

Perhaps your God will bless you with tolerance and love as our Lady has blessed us. I apologize for getting agitated. Being pissed off doesn't do anyone any good.

Blessings to you, Scott, I really do mean that.

Well then if you want them to take the books out of school library's then make sure they take every other fairy tale along with it. Heaven forbid any child use their imagination?
If the schools need to remove HP and other fairy tales, they should be sure to include the fairy tale book known as the Bible, as many schools do carry it on their shelves. I am of course kidding. I have no fear that my children are going to contaminated by the Bible or other books they get at the library. I encourage them to read and explore a variety of literature that we then discuss together. If I saw that there was a book I had concerns about, I would be sure to read it and discuss my concerns with my children.

Scott you and this woman that wants HP out of schools are both completely self absorbed. If you want HP out of school why not Homers Illiad and Odessy. Or maybe the works Tolkien. Both of you are narrow minded simpletons. Maybe you should go to the school and take a closer look in the library. If you think HP is bad take a look at some of the books that talk about drugs,violence,murder,and other acts that are factual aspects of whats happening in the world today all presented in some work of fiction on one shelf or the other. I guess that would mean sherlock holmes would have to be removed from the shelves as well. The brothers grimm ring a bell fairy tales with all kinds of things that should curl your hair. how about The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Peter Pan, bedknobs and broomsticks and many others where does it end when the library is empty except for books only approved by christians. what about books that are ok with jews or muslims or maybe the native americans. When did christian rights become more important that the rights of other tax paying productive parents reguardless of their religious views.

They just said keep it rom public schools funded by govt whwn so many objected to it. She is by no means alone. There is a silent moral majority that feels just like her. She is no where near as isolated as you would like to believe. And there are many outlets where potter books are not available like the one i own and manage.
As it doesn't teach religion, there is no reason why it shouldn't be in a gov't funded school.

While it is true that some of you donot openly worship the devil on purpose. he has been a master at hiding his true nature for yrs. Some serve him just out of pure ignorance and pride. But , God choses even members of your orders as elect and they will be persuaded. Those of you who won't that your business.
