Write 4 pages thesis on the topic why harry potter’s book should be banned. An article titled Harry Potter Exposed written by Dr. Johnson explores how witchcraft in the book is realistically written by one who claims to have previously practiced it before he found Christianity. He writes, “The Word of God is certain, powerful, and is filled with thousands of promises from God. Why would you want to reject the Word of God, which describes the sinfulness of mankind accurately. when Wicca doesn’t even recognize the Biblical concept of sin” (Johnson 5). The same concept is applicable to almost all religions. The Bible speaks of the devil and how he uses sorcery and dark magic to conjure his will. The idea that witches and wizards are evil is nothing new and depicting them in such a way that they are cool will not help parents and their respective churches to teach children about these sins.The Potter series shows children the notions of power and magic as reality without regard they may actually think they could have the same powers, contrary to the teachings of religion and promotes upon children disrespect for the authorities.The Harry Potter books create the world of witchcraft in such a way that it is wonderful. This does not consider that there really are people who are practicing witchcraft. Wicca is a term used to describe this kind of sorcery and there are people who practice it. The same people promote Rowling’s books because they say it is similar to their practice and shows what they do on a regular basis. If one who reads Potter searches it on the internet and finds information on how to be a witch then they could do the same simply because they want to be part of the world that was described in the book. This is against the teachings of Holy Scriptures. Similar to Muslims who believe that the devil is the enemy of God, some Christians share the same response to the cult that is displayed in the books. An article titled Harry Potter Exposed written by Dr. Johnson explores how witchcraft in the book is realistically written by one who claims to have previously practiced it before he found Christianity. The Potter series should be banned in schools, especially in elementary with very young and impressionable children, because it gives false ideas to kids who may not be able to distinguish what is good from what is bad. They may also prevent parents from effectively teaching the beliefs and values that they want their children to have. As a result, children may just be confused because their parents are saying that witchcraft is bad and it is against their religion but the books they read are all about witches and wizards that consider them to be good. Harry Potter is actually found by the American Library Association to be the “most banned book in America” (Olukotun). The volume of copies sold may be a testament to the popularity of the book but this does not make the books’ contents right. There may be more valuable to why it has been banned widely and perhaps the benefit of protecting children is more important than them actually joining the hype of reading the series.
