To the Adirondack Journal:
This is a reply to Lauralee Allen’s response to my earlier letter to the editor.
I wrote concerning the court-recognized religion of Witchcraft/Wicca which is being promoted unlawfully by the state in the U.S. public school system.
Where’s the public outcry toward this religious promotion? The facts as to Harry Potter speak for themselves.
I don’t want any state religion foisted upon unsuspecting and trusting children.
If Witches and Wiccans, who don’t believe in Satan or that he even exists, want to place their faith in Mother Earth, rocks, trees, rivers, streams or anything else — that’s their decision and privilege. They have freedom of religion and thought. If the deity of Witchcraft/Wicca meets their needs, let them freely exercise that freedom, but not in government educational systems.
Since the Ten Commandments have been considered by the courts to be harmful to those that may read and obey them, what has replaced that mode of proven and historically accepted morality? Where was the public outcry when all this was going down against Christianity?
The last two sentences of my earlier letter asked questions that need answers: Where’s the helpful, moral direction that children need? Is it in occult and Satanic principles being taught to them by the media and school teachers through the occult books of Harry Potter? Perhaps the Rede or the Law of Three has been deemed a suitable replacement?
The Harry Potter craze is merely a repackaging of Witchcraft/Wicca that exposes children to a religion, to the occult and demon powers that affect children spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and /or physically in a way that the Ten Commandments never would. Harry Potter promotes meditation, transfiguration of humans into other beings or animals, fortune telling, reincarnation, occult spells, curses, vampires, demonism, and can lead to Satanism. Over time children will adapt to the “dark world” of the occult and are not even aware of it’s dangers. Even most of the informed who are participating in the Wicca craft advise against involvement with spirit beings. A whole generation of kids are now on the internet trying to enroll in schools of Witchcraft and Wizardry such as Harry Potter’s school. Harry Potter books teach children a whole new set of behavior patterns and values. When kids are corrected by parents, teachers, or others in authority, they learn to cast spells or curses in order to get revenge. It doesn’t require a great intellect to evaluate such practices.
