Harry Potter has become less powerful as a Christian resource since JK Rowling has announced the gay status of Albus Dumbledore.
The resurrection themes are sOOOOOO strong, that it had been a happy hope-filled set of months since the conclusion of the series.
I had tried to ignore the ire in her voice as I had heard her refer so negatively to the Christians that have disliked the series due to “magic.” But she has pushed further, saying that this will make fundamentalists even less likely to like her works.
I am not a fundamentalist. And I don’t dislike homosexuals [don’t misread that sentence – I do care for homosexual people].
But this work which has been such a nice way to see christianity publicly written to millions, is suddenly tarnished with something so problematic.
It is not that it is bad to have a gay character. It is that it serves as a PROMOTION of an immoral practice…
