To clarify, I have read part of Harry Potter when I was younger and I watched many of the movies.
The claim I recall was that it was based on actual magic spells, I don’t remember from what language. I am not using this as evidence, only saying.
The problem is that Harry Potter supports trust in magic spells and what not over trust in Christ. This might sound silly to you, but to little children who are given this it means something.
Frankly let us look at the works. SO MANY of those who buy into many genders and all sorts of terrible things that come off of Tumblr LOVE Harry Potter. This is not a good thing. Like, I don’t mean they often just like it. I mean often they LOVE it as one of their favorites and have probably done types of role playing.
There’s just no real reason to read it. Safety first and all that, can’t say I always follow that advice though.
