For those of you who are unaware or forget who Laura Mallory is allow me to refresh your memory. Laura Mallory is a mother of four who tried to get the Harry Potter books banned by the her county school board, claiming that it was promoting witchcraft to young children. Refer to video for more information.

Stephenie Meyers is a Mormon and so christins should not be by any of the books she writes, while J K Rowling and Daniel Radcliff are probably both atheists.

The religion of the author should have no bearing on whether the book should be viewed as offensive by devout Christian Laura Mallory (though it probably does).

Regarding the video in which my opponent sent me, it is actually mocking the fact that the religion of the actor who played Harry Potter had any actual importance, so it does very little to help support their position.

Now, Laura Mallory should be offended by the book series "Twilight" because it promotes to children that it is acceptable to be lustful, which is the first deadly sin. Within the first book of the series Bella (the main character) continuously and excessively makes note of the sexual attractiveness of Edward Cullen (love interest), this would constitute lust, to which Laura should be strongly opposed to.

You probably don't even read the bible you dumb liberal! Liberalism is a mental handicap.

Not only is this completely irrelevant to debate, it is down right silly, whether or not I read the bible bears no significance, and to say that an entire political ideology is a mental handicap is ludicrous and without fact.

Um. Harry Potter actually celebrates Christmas in every novel. And in the seventh novel he makes a Christ-like self-sacrifice...? Christians are so backward lol.
