Potter Confusion

The new Harry Potter book is coming out this weekend and, get this, it is a whopping 672 pages. Many people credit the Potter series for getting kids back into books. That's good news for dads everywhere - that PlayStation 2 will be free for hours over the next few weeks. But then I see the new Pope has condemned the book as anti-Christian. He "believes the Harry Potter books subtly seduce young readers and 'distort Christianity in the soul' before it can develop properly." Sheesh. My kid is smart enough to read 672 pages but he'll burn in hell because of it? "Junior, put that book down and go turn on Sponge Bob. Daddy's got to figure all this out - right after SportsCenter."
