  2. Greetings from a fellow Iowan. I am in Ottumwa and an alumnus of Northern Iowa and Iowa (writers program).

    You have done a wonderful job, Thanks for the resource. I have told others of this site.

    But…

    under the social teaching section you have a quote from Steven King about Harry Potter. I would suggest you delete this quote. Harry Potter is about a worldview of Witchcraft. This is not consistent with Church teaching This has been affirmed by people like Fr. Amorth, former chief exorcist in Rome and many others,

    Two good articles are:

    Is Harry Potter Good for Kids by Vivian W. Dudro, the July/August issue of St. Joseph’s Covenant Keepers | http://saint-mike.org/warfare/library/is-harry-potter-good-for-kids/

    Some Thoughts on the Harry Potter Series by Michael O’Brien published in the National Catholic Register | http://saint-mike.org/warfare/library/some-thoughts-on-the-harry-potter-series/

    • Brother Ignatius,

      1. Always great to hear from a fellow Iowan!
      2. Thanks for the kind comments about the website. Much appreciated!

      3. The comment you referenced can actually be found in the Theology of the Body section (not the Catholic Social Teaching) and, for the sake of anyone else reading this, is: “Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength, and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.” – Stephen King

      4. Regarding Harry Potter… I appreciate your concern. I really do. But I think your analysis of the dangers of the Harry Potter series are completely off-base. Before I read Harry Potter for the first time I thought Michael O’Brien’s arguments sounded justified (I LOVED his book, Father Elijah, and figured he knew what he was talking about with the Potter series). However, after actually reading the series for myself and then following it up with the book How Harry Cast His Spell by John Granger I realized O’Brien had it all wrong for, in fact, the Harry Potter series was FULL of “Catholic treasure” and the cries of “Danger: Harry will cause you to join the occult!” were much ado about nothing. I’d like to encourage you to take a look at the following resources and, if you’re up for it, reading Harry Potter yourself so you can learn its true content.

      a. Article by Mark Shea (Harry Potter and the Christian Critics) – http://www.mark-shea.com/harry2.html
      b. Article by John Granger (Why My Family Adopted Harry Potter) – http://www.catholicdigest.com/articles/food_fun/books/2007/07-01/why-my-family-adopted-harry-potter
      c. And here’s a link to the Granger book I mentioned earlier (How Harry Cast His Spell) – http://a.co/3N4ugld

      God bless you,
      Greg

    Life is like a race, and death is the finish line. When you reach it you look back and all you think about is that you hope you did your best.

    Everyone always complains about how many followers they have, and we already know the number doesn’t matter because Jesus only had 12.
