Yuk.. all TV and movies have become is propoganda. Just as Christians were worried about Harry Potter saying the problem was witchcraft .. there is a more insidious message in those movies.

Just as Christians were worried about Harry Potter saying the problem was witchcraft .. there is a more insidious message in those movies.

Harry Potter seems to (fudge)pack the double whammy, witchcraft and homosexuality (or even just the latter), to hear some perv activist nitwits tell it:

Children aren’t the only ones who love Harry Potter. The members of NAMBLA are big fans, too — and a long article touted on the home page of the controversial group’s Web site puts forth the argument that the boy wizard is gay.

“Of course Harry is gay,” argues a quasi-academic essay there, which comes complete with 55 footnotes. “He grew up in a closet under the stairs. . . . At school Harry learns to fly, and meets the lovely red-headed Ron Weasley; fairy-boy and tight companion.”

The essay draws on historic and literary references, comparing, for example, Potter’s story with Orestes of Greek mythology. “Orestes, like Harry, was born at Lammas, sent away to be reared by relatives, had a lightening-flash birthmark on his forehead, caused the death of his parents, fought unending magic battles, had a marriage of convenience with Hermione, and was life-long lover of his childhood boyfriend Pylades. In ancient times the Orestes-Pylades story was regarded as the paradigm of masculine love, they were the perfect poofs, and given the continuing coincidence with Harry’s story [author] J.K. Rowling cannot be ignorant of this.”

A spokeswoman for Harry Potter’s publisher did not return calls for comment. MSNBC
