    • 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
