Harry Potter Film Spawns Demonic Teen Trends

by | Jul 11, 2011 | Charisma Archive

harry_potterPottermania will experience one last spasm as the Grand Finale of Harry Potter movies, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,
opens July 15.

When the book was released in July 2007, 11 million
copies sold in 24 hours, making it the “fastest selling book in
history.” When Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hits theaters this Friday, once again,
global interest will soar higher than Quidditch players seeking golden snitches.

While most consider all anti-Potterism downright Mugglish, concerns
remain high among many parents over exactly where these novels and
movies, along with Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, are catapulting this generation of kids.

Consider this: It’s no secret that the Harry Potter storyline about both good and evil wizards has fueled global teenage increase in Wicca and the occult. Next, Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series
about good and evil vampires has done the same thing for vampirism.
Blood drinking among teens has surged.

What’s next? Here’s a terrifying
possibility: New novels (made into movies?) about “good” and evil
demons, and the thrill of being possessed by the “good ones.” Two
mesmerizing tales with such storylines are immensely popular right now: Diana Rowland’s series about detective Kara Gillian, a Summoner of Demons; and
Jenna Black’s novels
about exorcist Morgan Kingsley who allows a sexy Demon King to inhabit her body “to save the human race.”

Think carefully: What might happen if a “third wave” of popular
entertainment inspires gullible teenagers to seek possession by demonic
entities, thinking it’s good for them? To those who believe in a real
behind-the-scenes war between good and evil, the prospect is truly
terrifying.
