Dr. Dobson speaks out against Harry Potter

Dr. James Dobson

The Chairman of Focus on the Family has spoken out against the Harry Potter series in order to correct a statement made in a Washington Post article to the effect that he actually favored it:

This is the exact opposite of Dr. Dobson's opinion — in fact, he said a few years ago on his daily radio broadcast that "We have spoken out strongly against all of the Harry Potter products." His rationale for that statement: Magical characters — witches, wizards, ghosts, goblins, werewolves, poltergeists and so on — fill the Harry Potter stories, and given the trend toward witchcraft and New Age ideology in the larger culture, it's difficult to ignore the effects such stories (albeit imaginary) might have on young, impressionable minds.

More here. The Post will issue a correction.
