LOCK HAVEN, PA--Ashley
Daniels is as close as you can get to your typical 9-year-old American girl. A third-grader at Lock Haven Elementary School,
she loves rollerblading, her pet hamsters Benny and Oreo, Britney Spears, and, of course, Harry Potter. Having breezed through
the most recent Potter opus in just four days, Ashley is among the millions of children who have made Harry Potter And The
Goblet Of Fire the fastest-selling book in publishing history.
And, like many of her school friends, Ashley was captivated enough by the
strange occult doings at the Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry to pursue the Left-Hand Path, determined to become
as adept at the black arts as Harry and his pals.
"I used to believe in what they taught us at Sunday School," said
Ashley, conjuring up an ancient spell to summon Cerebus, the three-headed hound of hell. "But the Harry Potter books showed
me that magic is real, something I can learn and use right now, and that the Bible is nothing but boring lies."
is hardly the only child rejecting God these days. Weeks after the release of Goblet, the fourth book in J.K. Rowling's blockbuster
kid-lit series, interest in witchcraft continues to skyrocket among children. Across America, Satanic temples are filling
to the rafters with youngsters clamoring for instruction in summoning and conjuring.
Over protests from Christian Right
leaders, who oppose the books for containing magic--and, by extension, Satanic religious beliefs--millions of children are
willing their bodies and souls to Lucifer in unholy blood covenants. In 1995, it was estimated that some 100,000 Americans,
mostly adults, were involved in devil-worship groups. Today, more than 14 million children alone belong to the Church of Satan,
thanks largely to the unassuming boy wizard from 4 Privet Drive.
"The Harry Potter books are cool, 'cause they teach
you all about magic and how you can use it to control people and get revenge on your enemies," said Hartland, WI, 10-year-old
Craig Nowell, a recent convert to the New Satanic Order Of The Black Circle. "I want to learn the Cruciatus Curse, to make
my muggle science teacher suffer for giving me a D."
"Hermione is my favorite, because she's smart and has a kitty,"
said 6-year-old Jessica Lehman of Easley, SC. "Jesus died because He was weak and stupid."
But as wild as children
are about Harry, no one is happier about the phenomenon than old-school Satanists, who were struggling to recruit new members
prior to the publication of the first Potter book in 1997.
"Harry is an absolute godsend to our cause," said High Priest
Egan of the First Church Of Satan in Salem, MA. "An organization like ours thrives on new blood--no pun intended--and we've
had more applicants than we can handle lately. And, of course, practically all of them are virgins, which is gravy."
membership in Satanic temples reaching critical mass in some areas, many children have been forced to start their own organizations
to worship the Lord Of Lies. Houston 11-year-old Bradley Winters, who purchased Goblet Of Fire with his own allowance money
at the stroke of midnight on July 8, organized his own club, Potterites To Destroy Jesus, with his neighborhood pals. An admission
fee of .66 grants membership to any applicant willing to curse the name of God and have a lightning bolt carved into his or
her forehead with an iron dagger.
"The Harry Potter books are awesome!" Winters said. "When I grow up, I'm going to
learn Necromancy and summon greater demons to Earth."
It's more than just the kiddie set and Satanists, however, who
are rejoicing over Harry's success. Educators nationwide are praising the books for getting children excited about reading.
almost impossible to find a book that can compete with those PlayStation games, but Harry Potter has done it," said Gulfport
(MS) Middle School principal Frank Grieg. "I have this one student in the fifth grade who'd never read a book before in his
life. Now he's read Sorcerer's Stone, Prisoner Of Azkaban, Chamber Of Secrets, Goblet Of Fire, The Seven Scrolls Of The Black
Rose, The Necronomicon, The Satanic Bible, The Origin Of Species--you name it."
Less pleased are Christian leaders,
who see Pottermania as a serious threat to their way of life.
"Children are very impressionable," said Dr. Andrea Collins
of Focus On Faith, a Denver-based Christian think-tank and advocacy group. "These books do not merely depict one or two uses
of magic spells or crystal balls. We're talking about hundreds of occult invocations. The natural, intuitive leap from reading
a Harry Potter book to turning against God and worshipping Satan is very easy for a child to make, as the numbers have shown."
books are truly magical," Collins added, "and therefore dangerous."
But such protests are falling on largely deaf ears,
especially in the case of Harry's creator.
"I think it's absolute rubbish to protest children's books on the grounds
that they are luring children to Satan," Rowling told a London Times reporter in a July 17 interview. "People should be praising
them for that! These books guide children to an understanding that the weak, idiotic Son Of God is a living hoax who will
be humiliated when the rain of fire comes, and will suck the greasy cock of the Dark Lord while we, his faithful servants,
laugh and cavort in victory."
DOLLINS LIES ABOUT QUOTES!
Besides the pages devoted to little Ashely, Dollins also puts five quotes
from this "story" in his book and lies about (or hides) the source.
1. On page 48, Dollins says, "Listen to what high Priest Egan of the
First Church of Satan in Salem, Massachusetts has to say about the Potter books: 'Harry is an absolute godsend to our cause.
An organization like ours thrives on 'new blood' --no pun intended--and we've had more applicants than we can handle lately.'
Dollins credits this quote to www.ChurchofSatan.com
The next four are found on pages 64 and 65. See if you
can pick out his blatant lies.
" With the popularity of the Harry Potter book series, I was
sure that one of the Satanic sites would have some sort of remarks about them and I was right! One of these particular websites
had and article on Harry Potter stating:
'In 1995, it was estimated that some 100,000 Americans, mostly adults,
were involved in devil-worship groups. Today, more than 14 million children alone belong to the Church of Satan, thanks largely
to the unassuming boy wizard from 4 Privet Drive.' (Harry's street address)."
"Imagine, Harry Potter books being praised by Satanists as a great
recruiting tool! The article included comments from young Satanists. One of the comments came from 6-year-old Jessica Lehman
of Easley, South Carolina staking:
'Hermione is my favorite, because she's smart and has a kitty. Jesus
died because He was weak and stupid.'
Can you feel the hatred towards Christianity in this comment? Keep
in mind, their goal is to wipe Christianity and any trace of God off the earth!
Another comment comes from 11-year-old Bradley Winters, who stated:
'The Harry Potter books are awesome! When I grow up, I'm going
to learn Necromancy and summon greater demons to Earth.'
The author of this Satanic article concluded the article with the following
'I think it's absolute rubbish to protest children's books on
the grounds that they are luring children to Satan," Rowling told a London Times reporter in a July 17 interview. "People
should be praising them for that! These books guide children to an understanding that the weak, idiotic Son Of God is a living
hoax who will be humiliated when the rain of fire comes, and will suck the greasy cock of the Dark Lord while we, his faithful
servants, laugh and cavort in victory. "
All four quotes were simply attributed to "the internet". He remembered
that it was from the article by The Onion in little Ashley's case. And since when is The Onion a Satanic site?
