So are classic fairy tales like Pinoccio or Snowwhite. Rowling just writes modern fairy tales that are entirely harmless.

She's had plenty of help along the way to reach fortune and fame and the minds of our children.
How do you know that?

If they hadn't had read Rowling, they might have become inspired by Tolkien. If they wouldn't have read Tolkien either, they might have been inspired by something else. Just because Harry Potter inspired some young girls to gain an interest in Wicca, that doesn't mean Rowling is part of some elaborate New Age conspiracy

IMO, the average Christian publication is far more dangerous than the harmless entertainment produced by Rowling. The more I look at the kind of rubbish produced by Christians on this site, the more obvious that becomes.
