No they are not.

Whether I am a Christian, committed or not, does not affect how I read a book about a fantastical, made up world.

Whether or not I believe that demons are real does not affect how I read a book about a fantastical, made up world.

The part you should get out of this is that HP is about a fantastical, made up world. It’s not real dude, get that through your skull. Until you can accept that these books are fantasy literature, much like Alice in Wonderland, I can’t continue this discussion. I discuss magical issues within the books as things that can’t ever happen, because THEY AREN’T REAL!

“Whether I am a Christian, committed or not, does not affect how I read a book about a fantastical, made up world.”

Well, by not answering you’ve pretty much answered my questions.

Let’s say I made up an extremely engaging story, aimed at a young audience, about two men living in a fantasy world who decided that they were in love and wanted to be married.

Would you similarity demand that all “dudes” get it through their thick sculls that such a book is alright because it’s in a “fantasy” setting?
