I feel really bad for kids who grow up believing that magic is all evil; as I live in a town where unaccepting Christianity is a huge problem. My friend once watched their mom grab a Harry Potter book out of their brother’s hands and told him that it was going back to the library immediately. Other people have come up to me while I’m reading Harry Potter and told me that magic is “an evil idea created by the devil.” It saddens me because I found so much hope in a series they see as evil.
