While the last Harry Potter novel has now come and gone, for years to come I expect we will hear more and more about the “evils” of Harry Potter by some of its critics. If nothing else, the continuing movie series will encourage this. They will try to tell you that the Pope has condemned the Potter series. Of course, that is because many sources, and especially LifeSite, have worked to suggest this. Indeed, LifeSite has had a campaign against Harry Potter for years, and they had a news story on their site which made it appear that Pope Benedict had made a final declaration against the books.
Nothing can be further from the truth.
It’s worth your time (if nothing else, to show why one should be cautious when reading stories by LifeSite).
