Vatican Still Not a Big Fan of Harry Potter
If you thought the "Harry Potter is evil" furor had ended with the publication of the final installment of the series, think again. L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper, recently published a pair of essays claiming to examine "The Double Face of Harry Potter."
According to one of the essays, authored by University of Florence literature critic Edoardo Rialti, the dangerous, "subtle seductions" of the Potter series blur the line between good and evil.
"[Rialti] goes on to compare Potter’s acceptance of magic to Eve’s acceptance of the serpent’s offer in the Garden of Eden."
