Laura Mallory, the Christian extremist, finally wrote an article explaining her crusade on the Harry Potter books.  I am rather infuriated, my logic overpowered as my brain tries to fathom someone with such conviction using arguments with so many holes in them.

"I think perhaps we are so desensitized, we couldn't recognize evil even if it were on the plate in front of us."

What is evil?  Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, evil is as well.  Perhaps those of us who have read the Potter books and know how innocent they are feel this attack on them is evil.  Perhaps the innocent Iraqi citizens who have lost loved ones feel the US army is evil.  Perhaps the little alter boy who is being molested by the priest thinks the church is evil.

"With the deceptive, exciting, children-friendly packaging of witchcraft in the Harry Potter series, our youth today view witchcraft not only as good and fun, but also as harmless fantasy."

I've read the whole series many times and never once did I see magic referred to as witchcraft.  Also never did I read anything resembling a friendly affront to Christianity.  In fact, I don't remember any type of religion being discussed.

"The books may of course be purchased in bookstores or checked out at public libraries, but need not be encouraged, assigned and read aloud in our children's schools and classrooms. Are they ready to put the Bible and prayer back in our schools and classrooms and read it aloud?"

"Thou shalt hold no God before me" vs "swish and flick."  One set of books preaches and teaches morals based on fear of eternal punishment, the other is a fun book with obvious lessons about good and evil and the rights and wrongs of socalization in school.  Sure I am a Slytherin with a love of Malfoys and Potions Masters, but even I know that Draco is mean and I shouldn't treat my peers as he treats his.  There can be no comparison between the bible and Harry Potter.

"America's desensitization to the occult is not only sad, but dangerous. We are in serious need of revival and a return to the traditional Judeo-Christian roots upon which our blessed country was founded."

Ah yes, the statement that drove me into heated rage.

Harry Potter has no base in the occult, first off.  The thing that really gets me is the statement about the roots of our blessed country.  Here I thought that the country was based on religious freedom, the escape from religious persecution.  True we have yet to show that type of tolerance (Look at the slaughter and assimilation of the Natives), but to say that we were based on.... oh it just drives me mad.

"I had planned to read a portion of the testimony by the father of Columbine martyr, Rachel Joy Scott, but due to the hearing's time restraints, I was unable to do so."

Well, I don't know about you, but reading Harry Potter makes me want to shoot my classmates and take my own life.  Marilyn Manson convinced me as well.  (Please insert appropriate sarcasm)

It's like Pete Townsend said, "If you shoot somebody because some shithead with a guitar told you to, then you're a shithead and would have done it anyway."  I may have gotten the wording wrong, but you get the idea.

The article continues to a poem saying God is needed to prevent such events.  Well, and I believe George Carlin said it first, God is the leading cause of death throughout history.  Well, God and America.

"We need God in America again. He's the One who says don't lie, steal or murder — for our own good."

I don't lie, steal or murder.  My Mommy taught me that, is she God?  She created me and taught me my lessons, I guess she is.


Without quoting her, I wish to make a couple more statements.  Prayer in school did not prevent violence and drug abuse and gang violence.  If your child grows up not knowing "Him, school is not to blame.  Do you not talk to your children?  Do you know teach them?  Blame the Harry Potter books, blame no prayer in school, blame whoever the hell you want, just don't dare blame yourself.

I was listening to an old episode of Snapecast last night and they mentioned Harry Potter astrology web sites.  I went to the one they were discussibng and it gives discriptions for each sign based on your house.  Here is mine, the discription of a Slytherin Cancerian:

Potions, potions, and more potions. Any Slytherin born under a water sign will excel at potions, and the Cancer Slytherin is no exception. The leadership ability and the lofty dreams of Cancer will also be emphasized; as will loyalty (directed for the most part to one's House). Slytherins born under the sign of Cancer will be more hard-shelled and less sentimental than other Cancers, but don't be fooled by their bossy, efficient exteriors. On the inside they are soft and needy, and they learn from a young age to hide this well. Slytherins born under water signs have another thing in common with each other: keen insight into what makes other people tick. These Slytherins are good at manipulating other people's emotions, and good as well at quickly learning the hidden stories behind the otherwise inexplicable actions of acquaintances. They never forget a cut or a kindness, so it is best to stay on their good side unless you want an obsessive, vindictive enemy.


And my Griffindor Virgo husband:

This is not a natural sign for Gryffindor, but some Gryffindors do end up born under the influence of Virgo. They are hard workers and usually very bright; they tend to be more ethically obsessed than most. Some Virgo wizards are also sorted into House Gryffindor because of their amazing imaginations; on the surface they may appear straight-laced and almost nervous, but inside is a wealth of romantic yearning and fantastic excitement. They quietly build dream castles in their minds; and the practical influence of the Earth element means that they, unlike more flighty signs, may have some chance of building those dream castles on solid foundations.

Last night I picked Jack up from his crib early (the neighbor's kid was crying and we picked it up on our moniter) and he slept on my chest for a good half hour.  I was so blissful cuddling with my little guy and Brett told me this morning that I was positively glowing, I looked so happy.  I was so happy.  I could cuddle with my boys all day long, sometimes that is why we are late to work :)

First off, some ranting.

We went to my in-laws this weekend and had a great time.  The thing that really upset me was the breakfast we went to, hosted by the church.  I knew it was a pro life benefit, but what I did not know is the level of indoctrination they are giving these kids.  There was a pro life poster contest.  Some of the posters had actual pictures of aborted fetuses.  I also found out that these kids get little pins the size and shape of fetus feet.  My niece has 2, one silver and one gold.

It was hard for me to explain that I am pro choice and thus did not feel right voting in the contest.  More than that it was hard to bite my tongue and not rant right then and there.  One poster had a drawing of MLK and the title "What if your baby had a dream?"  Here is my rebuttal:


What if your child had a dream?

And another poster mentioned that 25 million fetuses have been aborted, that is more than all of the people who died in all of America's wars.

Well, more than all of the Americans who died in those wars.  No mention of the Iraqis, Jews, Germans, Russians, British, French, Vietnamese... or all of the people who were slaughtered during Manifest Destiny, the genocide in Africa and around the world, the children starving or dying of AIDS...  Honestly abortion is not the biggest issue.

So there I stood, my little boy, my CHOICE, next to me, surrounded by pro lifers.  Thank the Gods I have Brett, another island of reason in a sea of hypocrisy.



Jack has been great, he is so smiley these days.  He laughs so much, loves being played with.  Brett is great too, and I am finally feeling good enough to get down to exercising.  First it was the flu, then my pulled rib muscle.  Now I might be able to get cracking because the heavier Jack gets, and the more mobile he gets the better shape I'll have to be in.  I'm not worried about my weight, though I am low on pants.  Luckily Brett let me get new jeans last night.  I also found some awesome tees.  One is from Pirates, though it is hard to tell.  In the style of MOM tattoos it says "I love Jack."  Also there is an interesting shirt that Brett loves (because he has a sense of humor).  He has a shirt that says "Do Not Commit"  He should wear it when I wear mine:

Of course
I'm in Love
   With You
       Darling


We also bought Jack a 4 month present, a Johnny Jump-Up.  He sat in it last night and looked amazed by the bar on top and the fact that for the first time in his life he can move his legs and feel the effect.

I have 3 videos to share with everyone before the 3rd DVD (since the second one is done).  One is Jack laughing when I kiss his hands, the next is him chewing the heck out of his fingers and the third is him in the new door bouncie

So there is the update.  I'll write more after Jack has his appointment tomorrow.

I am finally feeling human again after last week's initiation into Club Flu, and believe me we are a cranky bunch.  We also were blessed with a stomach virus.  Aren't we the lucky ones, all blessed for Xmas this year.

Apart from that, things are going good.  Jack got his 3 month portraits done, and he was not happy.   He was crying the whole time and after one pic he shit all over himself, through his clothes and onto the backdrop.  We did get a few good whots though, no smiles to be seen.  When we got home he was smiling like mad.  Figures.  We'll do our own photo shoot someday at home.
