Just curious. I saw a post earlier about a mom who was "shocked" that her daughter heard about an internet game that has wizardry in it. The fear of wizardry and witchcraft has been a reason for genocide and massacres throughout the ages. Haven't we learned from our mistakes?

The people I have known who are not fond of witch craft and wizard or fantasy are often more conservative Christians. But I have friends that are both conservative and Christian and have no beef with Mr. Potter. I personally think that it is a personal choice. For those that don't like it and think there is a problem with it then of course they have the right to not want it in their homes. I am one who awaits my child to be the right age so we can role play a little bit of D&D. He's only two so I have about two more years and he can begin to play a little of it. My husband grew up on that stuff and attributes that to his large vocabulary, his great math abilities, and imagination. Everyone I knew in high school who played all went on to super colleges and are doing very well for themselves. Of course I am not saying that is the only reason they are doing well - but perhaps the fantasy world attracts smart people.

You'd think I'd remember these things since this is my second pregnancy....
