    • Many people opposed Harry potter.
    • Religious organizations challenged the book
    • the most. Religious people challenged the book due to it’s focus on magic and wizardry, which went against many beliefs of certain religions.
  • My Reaction
    • The Christians opposition to the book is
    • understandable. Some people don’t want their children to be influenced by things of that nature. I am sure J.K. Rowling meant no harm, while writing the story. The Christians nor J.K. Rowling are at fault.

    • Harry potter and the Chamber of Secrets
    • Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
