I like HP as well. I saw their new netbooks and they look very well made.

Don't buy one. Their laptops are junk.

I agree. I wouldn't touch their PC's or laptops with a 10 foot long clown pole.

I used to love HP as well. I used to think it was the best sauce in the world. Then I found out the Queen of England uses it. Now I think its the worst sauce in the world.

St. Thomas would not make vague threads with introductions such as:

Quote:alright. Its that Harry Potter debate time again! So, is it anti-Catholic? What do you think?

Attempts at being serious failed, as I, before bring up HP, did try to get more specific questions and concerns, and asked what the previous debates didn't cover.

Question: Is Harry Potter Catholic?

Answer: No, Harry Potter is not Catholic. He does, however, celebrate Christmas.

"Again"? Where was the last? Why start it anew? What aspects not covered in the last do you wish to discuss here?

As for Harry Potter, I found the first few books poorly written and stupid. I was 11 at the time I think.

I dont think its anti-Catholic, but it was poorly written, yes.
Define "anti-Catholic".

I think a story which glorifies disobedience (while not a real issue in itself, it combines with everything else), a boy who gets glory and power by chance and without effort (the writer invented the entire story so that this boy could have things happen to him...whatever happened to hard work and toil?), a headmaster of a school for wizards who is homosexual, and a story which ignores all philosophically important issues for fantasy could be considered to be "anti-Catholic" on some level.

The fact it is poorly written is the final nail. If we are reading trash, it should be well written. That is why it is evil; because it is a sign of decaying literature in the youth.

Dumbledor? Homosexual? Says who?
