Voldemort is God!

July 31, 2007

And Harry Potter is Jesus. Lucius Malfoy is the Angel of the Annunciation. And you know how Ginny, in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, is possessed by the spirit of Tom Riddle? That’s the Immaculate Conception turned on its head.

I always knew that the Harry Potter books were sending fundies around the bend, but it’s always a bit of a shock to see the ravings in their raw, undiluted form. This isn’t quite up there with this rant about Harry Potter in the film Jesus Camp, but it’s still pretty good:   

The innocent Ginny confides in the diary, asking it questions, and the diary advises her, guides her, like the Holy Scripture. About the diary she says, I’m so glad I’ve got this diary to confide in … It’s like having a friend I can carry around in my pocket (p. 335). Isn’t this the way we wish our children would think about the Holy Scripture? Ginny continues to ask Tom for guidance, until she, under the malevolent and seductive influence of the anti-Christ figure, Harry Potter, bearing the mark of the beast on his front, rejects it and it falls into his hands. The little girl writes Potter a poem: His eyes are as green as a fresh pickled toad, He is truly divine, the hero who conquered the dark(sic) lord. Once more a blasphemous attempt to turn the tables around and represent witchcraft, a dark force Christianity has faced and fought since the dark ages, as benevolent, and make God out to be something dark and fearful to us. The terms green eyes and pickled toad should be enough to raise the alarm bells in the mind of any true Christian, but our children are not always well versed in the Divine truth of the Bible and defenceless against this sort of Satanic indoctrination. 

I hope that clears everything up for you.
