Rant #2

Ok, yesterday's mini-rant was something I had promised myself not to put on this blog, but I couldn't not do it. Today, we have this:

"It is good that you enlighten people about Harry Potter, because these are subtle seductions which act unnoticed and by this deeply distort Christianity in the soul, before it can grow properly."

- Pope Benedict XVI in a letter to a Gabriele Kuby, reported by ABC-CBN

Regarding the very idea that Harry Potter books, which have brought endless joy and made reading fun for millions of children, are evil because they divert them from worshipping a bloody, naked man nailed to a cross, I can only say the pretty much only thing I have to say to any Pope: eat excrement, asshole.

So now we can look forward to parents inspecting, with authority given by the Holy one himself, their daughters' bookshelves for non-scary-ass, ridiculous, brain-washing fiction, lest it prevent them from becoming good little bigots (if only Harry had such power!) And you think George W. is the king of black being white?
