Years ago, before he was pope, he disapproved of them: http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2005/jul/05071301.html

I don't know whether or not the book or movies are truly dangerous. I lean to the side of saying they probably aren't that great. I'm just more ticked off at the total lack of concern for truth the press seems to have these days.  :fish:

I heard the story a bit differently: that when a woman sent him her anti-Potter book, he replied with a form letter, but she sent the story to lifesitenews as "The Pope condemned it".

Two more, including this one, if memory serves.

I agree. And the actor playing Ron, to me, is an all around pretty good guy.

DK, I was hoping you would go see Harry Potter so you could share another movie review with us.  Your reviews are classic.  :cheers:

Why not?

I have never seen that album cover.

As such.

I recant my previous statement.

EVEN after considering they are/were European...  :laughing:
