A Pastor Would Rather Children Drown To Death Than Read ‘Harry Potter’
8 years later, Harry Potter is still riling religious extremists.
In the past we have seen an evangelical mom rewrote J.K. Rowling’s novels to get rid of all the annoying magic.
Today a wacky pastor would rather let children die than read or watch Harry Potter.
While speaking at the National Religious Liberties Conference in Des Moines, Iowa, Kevin Swanson said Americans should “repent that Dumbledore emerged as a homosexual mentor for Harry Potter.”
Swanson did't stop there though. He also went after How to Train Your Dragon for having a gay character, and that if his children, ages 6, 7, and 8, watch any of the Harry Potter movies, “it would be better for them that a millstone be hanged around their neck and they be drowned at the bottom of sea.”
A bit extreme, don't you think? I mean, what did Harry Potter do to Ron Swanson?
