A note on Harry Potter

I am a huge fan of editing books or movies or board games in order to bring them within the standards of the gospel. I have been surprised at the number of people who wholeheartedly endorse the Harry Potter books.

Book six appears to portray making out as normal, which is absolutely wrong to portray to our children. But book seven goes much farther and includes a line where Ron reproves Harry for groping Ginny every chance he gets (page 118). Harry makes no denial of doing such a thing. The intention here is clear. Giny is Harry’s girlfriend so according to the author, naturally he touches her breasts. I don’t know how many kid’s books include the word “groping” as an activity between adolescent boys and girls, but I think it is revolting and way outside gospel standards.

That being said, I am a big fan of editing things so that they become clean.
