the Vatican has praised the newest Harry Potter movie saying it makes good vs evil very clear & shows the expression of young love in the "correct balance".
do you think this will change the negative opinion of the Harry Potter series (ie it being "from the Devil") with many Christians?

"No. Because a lot of mainstream Protestant/non-Catholic Christianity doesn't pay attention to what the Vatican says and I personally don't know any Catholics that have a problem with Harry Potter. "
I completely agree. I've never had a problem with the HP series, even when I was a Catholic. If Christians are against witchcraft that's fine, but it's FICTION people! Really, what's wrong with a little fantasy reading every once in a while. It's not condoning anything except maybe a love for reading. The Sword of Truth series is filled with magic, etc but more geared only to adults and no one seems to make too big of a deal over that. My daughter is reading that one right now on my recommendation since she loved HP. She has yet to try to use any of the spells in either series LoL!!!
