Musings: Harry Potter promotes Satanism?

MSNBC is flogging the Christian alarmists' position (resuscitated like Frankenstein) that J.K Rowling's books promote Satanism. How quickly the no-brainer crowd forgets these chestnuts:

Know of what you speak.
Read before you criticize.
Discuss the moral context of literature with family members. (Does the Bible promote rape, fornication, murder and witchcraft just because it mentions them too?)
Alarmism ("slippery slope," "desensitizing influence") is the last resort of the clueless.
Keep things in perspective. (The biggest targets make for the biggest press exposure, but try eliminating the biggest real problems to society, like pedophilic priests.)
