    But right-wing Christians tend to be fairly gullible.  I was in a romance group online where a very sweet but  equally naive Christian Mom posted  an e-mail she'd gotten froma friend in which a 5-year-old was quoted as serving Satan because "Jesus was a wuss".  The cause of the Satanic  moppet? He'd been reading Harry Potter.

    We patiently explained to her that the article was from The Onion and was satire. And I pointed out that J.K. Rowling was a member in good standing of the CHurch of Scotland. And for good measure, I outed myself as a Wiccan and explained that Wicca doesn't worship Satan because we don't beeli8ve in him--he's part of Christian myth, not Wiccan. I don't think we convinced her that Harry was OK for kids, but at least we disproved the rightwing nonsense that reading a series of YA books will turn your kid into a baby-killing Satanist.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
