I REALLY could have done without that character. It was needed though with the teenage angst thingie. She annoyed me.


I'm not minding her so much now...

I wonder if J.K. Rowling enforces her copyright. This seems to be a clear violation of copyright.

I wonder how the supporters of what this woman has done would react if someone rewrote, for example, one of Pat Robertson's books and tried to pass it off as the real thing. Luckily, there is little danger that something as popular and well known as the Harry Potter books can be successfully destroyed by a zealot like this.

It works in reverse too.

For instance The Holy Bible could become the Holy Crap What A Load Of Bovine Manure.

Or Holy Mother Of God That Fart Stank.....

Indeed it could and you can bet torch carrying mobs would be lighting up the rewriter's life.

If they are going to carry around flames one would hope that they don't get too close to the aforementioned flatulence!

Or maybe they should...

My kids read it. and ...let me think about it for a second. nope none of them became witches or cast any spells. I just handed one a broomstick to see if he would fly about the park on it. He just frowned and asked me what he was supposed to sweep up. I think the kids are safe.

You should have handed him a bedknob too, that's where you went wrong!

Ha! We didn't have any and I would have really gotten a rotten look if I did that! Maybe even a real spell? LOL

Yea. It's so ridiculous that it borders into unintentional satire territory. Heck, it may just be worth it to read to get a huge laugh at the craziness and how far it diverged from the source material.


Sounds like someone has committed heresy with the beloved harry P. diverted from the original source material. Ha sound like you all don’t appreciate it . So tell me how do you feel when someone reinterprets one of your books?

How would you feel if someone started posting in your name and those posts reflected views contrary to yours? Let's say they went so far as to incorporate things you've posted before and then manipulated those things in ways that grossly distorted your positions. Would y'all appreciate it?

You have to wonder what the woman would think about Narnia, or Perelandra, or Tolkien's works?

I'd have to imagine she wouldn't understand the allegory.

As ridiculous as this event probably sounds to most people, I think it is much more commendable, even if I don't agree with the woman's motives and reasons, for her to rewrite the thing for her children as opposed to launching a campaign to get it banned, or something even more ridiculous. Like people going out of their way to make everyone else conform to their belief system. If you don't like, then do what this woman did instead of launching a campaign to make sure your beliefs take precedence.

I wouldn't bet that she isn't part of that group, too.

No reason for her to do that. Who needs a watered down Harry Potter, when you have the Book of Judges?

In my opinion, the Book of Judges is a perfect moral compass, showing us how much God loves us all. It is the perfect bedtime story. She can use this website that uses legos scenes as an illustrated guide for not only her own children, but ours too. Perhaps share it at Sunday school with everyone. See, all the work was done for her already.

She should start with this fine story showing compassion and charity, to test out my suggestion.

What are you talking about and what are you getting at? For the record I'm not upset about any of this. It's a big joke to me.
