The slippery slope

The Left is forever slapping labels on those things they consider detrimental to the health of our bodies, yet they resist this very same practice when it comes to the well-being of our souls. Case in point: Harry Potter books.

The Vatican's chief exorcist, Rev. Gabriele Amorth, is reported to have repeated his condemnations of the Harry Potter novels yesterday. According to press reports, Fr. Amorth, said of the books, "You start off with Harry Potter, who comes across as a likeable wizard, but you end up with the Devil. There is no doubt that the signature of the Prince of Darkness is clearly within these books."

"By reading Harry Potter a young child will be drawn into magic and from there it is a simple step to Satanism and the Devil," he said.

And homosexuality. While Pottery Barn bears the most responsibility for luring me into my former life of selfish hedonism, my parents were derelict in their duties, as well. They allowed such corrupting influences as The Smurfs and Lucky, The Lucky Charms leprechaun, into our family's home. It is the nature of the Secularists to scoff at these things, but when you come home to see that your child has rearranged his bedroom and would like to order custom window treatments, Satan has already gotten a hold on your child.
