Responding to my friend, Barb's comments regarding Harry Potter: There are no explanations for so many people and how they choose to spend their time and energy trying to control what others think and read. God has told all of of us who believe that God's word has been given to us in the life and teaching of Jesus Christ, that it's not what we take in (food, books, etc.), but what we put out, that we need to worry about ... that it's not the speck in the other person's eye, but the log in our own ... that we are to forgive one another and leave the judging to God, etc. etc. But, just as the "religious folks" in Jesus day were the first and worst violators of this teaching, so "Christians" continue the tradition! Frustrating!
