So the Pope Says: Harry Potter? Evil

Pope Gives Potter the Finger (Thumbs Down)

from Cinescape

LifeSiteNews.com has obtained and made available online copies of two letters sent by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who was recently elected Pope, to a German critic of the Harry Potter novels. The note was a show of "support" for the critic's attack on J.K. Rowling's series of books.

Pope Benedict XVI had been concerned that earlier statements made by English press throughout the world had inaccurately proclaimed that Pope John Paul II approved of the Harry Potter novels. Apparently Benedict XVI has "expressed serious reservations about the novels" and he is bothered by the impression the Vatican approves the Potter novels. He feels that the books "corrupt the hearts of the young, preventing them from developing a properly ordered sense of good and evil, thus harming their relationship with God while that relationship is still in its infancy."
