Arsenic is bad for you. The Harry Potter books are not. At least they're reading! Perhaps the next book they'll pick up will be Shakespeare, or Orwell, or even CS Lewis and they just might read something that will teach them about the beauty of life and the fragility of freedom and open their minds a little.
Or alternatively you could stifle their love of books for life.

Maybe they will read Farenheit 451* and NOT turn out to be like their crazy mommy.
(*That is the book about a dystopia where firefighters burn books instead of extinguish flames.)

Arsenic is bad for you. Harry Potter is good for you, it (and other fantasy novels) stimulates the imagination and creavtivity.
It also extolls the virtues of love, freindship, courage, and wisdom. Good lord we can't have that!

the_darkside-986: I could swear I read something not long ago about a fundy mom who was upset about 451 (not that she'd read it!) because she heard it contained swear words. Yes...she wanted to ban Fahrenheit 451.

Coming from somebody who hasn´t read, sure, Harry Potter.

Worst analogy ever.

Except the Harry Potter books aren't poisonous, so this analogy is ridiculous.

I saw a news report on that. it was a case in Texas. Try and contain your surprise.

I wish you scared little fundies would admit it's not the content of Harry Potter that freaks you out, it's the popularity of it. You know your religion can't compete with popular fiction or media and you want kids barred from it and locked into YOUR myth.

At least they aren't reading an incoherent forgery.

Harry Potter is a Christian allegory, stupid! At least they're reading about the fight between Good and Evil and [spoiler ahead] Good wins! Harry even comes back from the dead, sort of.
If they wanted to read Mein Kampf or Atlas shrugged, then you could perhaps talk about arsenic. However, no book is so bad it will kill you through severe organ failure and hemorrhaging.
Wait a moment, didn't Monty Python have a funny story that was so funny you died of laughter? But if you gotta go, why not go laughing...?
