I know some people who didn't allow their kids to read the "Harry Potter" book series because it was about magic.
Not sure if they were allowed to see the movies, though. Or read "Magic Treehouse" or watch "Magic Schoolbus." I'm guessing not.

Weren't there book burnings of it too in some places?

Probably.
They should know that the ashes of these books will reform into the exact same books. With a few typo's, of course. Not even magic is perfect.

FTR, I am not superstitious.


I'm only a little stitious.

When you believe in things
That you don't understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain't the way,

I have met someone who thought all Disney movies were Satanic.

This is well put.

If I remember correctly, in "The Witch of Blackbird Pond," Kit gets in trouble for making a skit out of a Bible story for her young students, because any kind of "play acting" was of the devil.

That's pretty intense, but my great-great-grandfather refused to play any card games except for Rook because traditional cards were satanic.

My granny was the same. She didn't hold with drinkin', smokin', cussin', card playin', or women who dress like hussies. Surprisingly fun to hang around, for all that.
