It goes without saying that without Harry Potter there would be no show. What else would David have to bring up every single episode – relentlessly – without bringing up Rich’s brilliant (Or misguided?) claim that Harry Potter was a Christ figure?
Well, J. K. Rowling is clearly messing with our heads. A few weeks ago, she announced to the world, “I always thought of Dumbledore as gay.”
Okay… this is a good time for some awkward silence, and maybe a meticulous hindsight 20/20 montage…
Now that we’re done with that, what now? How do we respond to this as Christians who see homosexuality as sin? Can we still read this to our kids? Should we just give up altogether and acknowledge that we will never discover another Chronicles of Narnia? Is modern Children’s literature a lost cause?
We answer some of those questions on this episode of Christ and Pop Culture!
