So, the chief wizard is gay. No kiddin'!

How many years did we have Christians saying they let their kids read/watch Harry Potter? I know of two very strong Christians--people whose love for the LORD is unshakable--who were sucked into it. "Oh, it's just harmless fun. So what if it's about witchcraft?" I never had a desire to delve into all that Harry Satan nonsense. It has always seemed like a trap. Something in my gut said to steer clear. Well, now the truth has come out of the...well, you know. From the Guardian Unlimited:
There could hardly have been a bigger sensation if Russell Crowe, Rod Stewart or Sven-Goran Eriksson had come out of the closet. Millions of fans around the world were yesterday digesting the news that one of the main characters in the Harry Potter novels, Albus Dumbledore, is gay.

The revelation came from author JK Rowling during a question-and-answer session at New York's Carnegie Hall. It instantly hurtled around the internet and the world. News websites in China and Germany announced starkly: 'JK Rowling: "Dumbledore is gay".' One blogger wrote on a fansite: 'My head is spinning. Wow. One more reason to love gay men.'
What better way to get kids comfortable with homosexuality than to get them to cherish some fictional character, and then turn around and say, "See, it's not so bad to be gay." And that is exactly what has happened with all these kids whose parents let their kids grow up with Harry Satan. Now, children who have been learning all about this world of witchcraft are being told by the Harry Potter industry that it's OK to be gay.

Who cares if study after study have shown that gays have more psychological problems than normal people? Who cares if gays have a much greater risk of contracting STD's than normal people? Who cares if someone who lives as a homosexual, and thinks they're saved, is headed for eternal destruction and torment? (Romans 1:18-27; 1st Corinthians 6:9, 1st Timothy 1:10) Hey, we have to be tolerant, and politically correct, and whatever other liberal buzzword you want to use to describe letting people lead destructive lives lest we hurt their feeeeelings?
