Is the Harry Potter book and movie series just harmless fantasy, or are the Potter books and movies a blatant attempt to present witchcraft and the Wicca religion as innocent and benign to unsuspecting, vulnerable children? Is the alluring power behind witchcraft being made acceptable to masses of children through the Harry Potter phenomenon, and if so should parents be concerned?

Witchcraft or Wicca as it is known to practitioners “believes in revering the mother goddess, the global environment, feminist practices, and nature. The holy writ or rule of witchcraft “do what you want as long as it harms no one” is Wicca’s most appealing draw. Wicca encourages its adherents to indulge in self gratification and self-centeredness while allowing morals to shift at will. It teaches there is no absolute truth or sin and replaces the patriarchal male creator God of the Bible with a belief in male and female gods.”

A massive global marketing campaign has packaged Potter as “children’s fantasy literature” and “over half of all children between the ages of 6-17 have read at least one Harry Potter book.” Through Potter books and movies, kindergarten age children have been introduced to human sacrifice, the sucking of blood from dead animals, and possession by spirit beings.
