A reader observes:

It strikes me that the same people who
a) criticize Harry Potter for “lying for a good cause” are generally the same people who praise Lila Rose for “lying for a good cause”.
b) criticize Harry Potter for his disobedience to authority are generally the same people who support Fr. Corapi’s disobedience to authority.
c) say that condemnations of Harry Potter by Fr. Amorth and Fr. Euteneuer are dogmatic because “they’re exorcists,” but if you tell the same people that Bishop Andrea Gemma, who used to teach Exorcism at Pontifical Gregorian, says Medjugorje is Satanic and a door to the occult, they’ll tell you he’s not an authority and he’s just an evil Satanist himself, trying to undermine the Church.

Yes, it is striking the amount of gnat-straining and camel swallowing that goes on in accordance with the Ox Gore Principle.
