Pope No Potter Fan 

Along with Professor Snape, Pope Benedict is also no fan of Harry. Potter. In a series of letters in 2003 when he was Cardinal Ratzinger, the current Pope corresponded with an author whose book criticized the Harry Potter books. He told the author (Gabriele Kuby):
"It is good that you are throwing light on Harry Potter, because these are subtle seductions that work imperceptibly, and because of that deeply, and erode Christianity in the soul before it can even grow properly," the letter added.
The Vatican had no comment to the news released today, instead stating that the Pope and his secretary are on vacation. You'd think he'd be rallying the troop for this weekend's release, given the severe threat to developing souls.

I eagerly await the 6th erosive installment, which will be arriving on my doorstep this Saturday.
