I'll bring the coleslaw.
Oh crap Harry, look who's turned up on FR! But it's ok, Hagrid is here too. Now all we have to do is find Ron.
And I think you'll be safe for a while. Old You-Know-Who will be too busy zapping the happy-clappy potty potter bashers to bother with you for some time yet!
I thought she said in interview that she came up with the idea on a train.
Oh well, some types of Christian never let the real facts get in the way of some nice juicy lies and distortion.
British Rail is a lot less luxurious than a cruise, believe me! ;-)
Do you actually believe that the British royal family are Satanists?
I do not know about a plan..but I do know that Christianity is dead in the UK.."spiritualism" and it practices are the most common "religious practices"Princess Dianna was always running after one type of fortune teller or another..
I think like alot of people that post on these thread they think that witchcraft is a spiritually neutral...and some kind of game.That would make sense in a secular culture that has no Biblical ties.
I happen to believe that God will have mercy on whom He will have mercy.Those that are His will not be deceived..so everyman is free to do what is "right in his own eyes".For those that think there just might be some truth in the bible I quote from Matthew
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.IMHO It is not possible because of Gods grace working in them has given them Spiritual eyes.. So to the rest of the world it is a game,they may play because God allows man his free will choices.
From this Interview:
Where the idea for Harry Potter actually came from I really couldn't tell you. I was travelling on a train between Manchester and London and it just popped into my head. I spent four hours thinking about what Hogwarts would be like - the most interesting train journey I've ever taken. By the time I got off at King's Cross many of the characters in the books had already been invented.
And so the cruise becomes yet another distortion of the truth, just like the claims that she "majored in Mythology" when every bio I've seen says she majored in "French."
If it's true that the books are evil, then why can't they be discredited with the truth and not distorted facts?
Lies and distortion: all hail the experts in shuck and jive.
Anyway, what's your take on the distortion/twisting truth angle?
This is a serious question. I really don't have any problem with some Christians' problems with HP (I understand them, given your world view), but why is it necessary to twist the truth? (I'm not getting at you lot personally, please understand that!)
Not to worry, we've got that covered...
Education, especially in the arts, doesn't always guarantee employment. And, she was divorced. I've not seen any stories talking about her child's father, which would lead me to assume that he was not involved and/or not contributing. But maybe she just doesn't want him getting any of the royalties...
Then too, some feel they have to exaggerate in order to shock people out of their complacency
This sentence interests me. Wasn't it Eusebius (sp), an earlt church Father, who said it was basically OK to 'lie for Christ' when converting the pagans?
