Is new Harry Potter movie one more two-hour recruiting film for the occult?

The final Harry Potter movie opens Friday, but Steve Wohlberg, author of Exposing Harry Potter and Witchcraft, is worried that it’s one more two-hour recruiting film for the occult.

“The Pottermania will experience one last spasm as the Grand Finale of Harry Potter movies, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 2),” he writes. “When the book was released in July 2007, 11 million copies sold in 24 hours, making it the fastest selling book in history.

So, then the final film “hits theaters this Friday, once again, global interest will soar higher than Quidditch players seeking Golden Snitches. While most consider all anti-Potterism downright Mugglish, concerns remain high among many parents over exactly where these novels and movies, along with Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, are catapulting this generation of kids.


“Consider this,” writes Wohlberg. “It’s no secret that the Harry Potter storyline about both good and evil wizards has fueled global teenage increase in Wicca and the occult. Next, Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga about good and evil vampires has done the same thing for vampirism. Blood drinking among teens has surged. What’s next?”

Blood drinking among teens? Really?

    Have the authors of this article bothered to read the books?

    Harry Potter is an elaborate Christ-figure story, with the last film including a resurrection, filled with Christian symbolism throughout. It’s as anti-Christian as C.S. Lewis’ tales of Narnia.

    Twilight is a metaphorical story of how to reconcile oneself to God, through sacrificial love. Everything about the Cullen family vampires is angelic, including the world’s least hidden symbol ever, Bella’s guardian angel, Edward, sparkling/glowing with heavenly light.

    Doesn’t anyone listen in their English classes anymore?

    When the Harry Potter books first came out, my sister-in-law declared that they were a Satanic influence without ever reading a page. At Mother’s church, the adult book club all read and discussed the books and considered them more a re-telling of the battles between Good and Evil.
    Is Evil ever shown to be attractive? No,the forces of Good have to be on guard, willing to die to protect others so that Evil doesn’t rule the world.You wouldn’t think that children would have to keep on going, losing people they looked up to in order to protect the worlds of Magic and the human world that didn’t believe it existed.
    I think the Harry Potter books brought more children back to reading books.I’m commenting just on Harry Potter. From the first day, the students are expected to take responsibility for their actions.
    As for studying Wicca, they will learn quickly enough that it won’t teach them to fly through the air and zap things with wands.All it has in common with Harry Potter is stressing that you are responsible for your own actions–something they should have learned at home.
