I haven't read any of the books either, and once I tried to watch one of the movies but found it very dull and boring.

However, your comment that *Harry sacrificed his life to save others* makes me think of all the unbelievers and atheists who reject God, that I have met in my life, who say to me, "We dont need God, we can be *good* people without him". And I'm sure they believe that.

However, as Jesus said, None but the Father in heaven is *good*. So whatever *goodness* these people purport to have which is not of God, is pretty worthless.

Also any business person can look at the phenomenom of the Potter books and see a machine--- personally I rather doubt Rowling is the sole author-- more likely a set of people, like Disney-- cranking out a purposeful money making empire. There's nothing wrong with making money, mind you --but it might cause some of us to wonder just what was the purpose of infusing impressionable minds with a veritable onslaught of occult books, teaching that people can be noble and good without God. Sounds atheistic and can we say socialistic, Communistic -- laying the groundwork, moving the football. Get minds while they're young.

That is a lengthy comment for one who has not read the books.

Read them and see for yourself.
