Just read a little from “Bored Melo”, a US McCain supporter’s blog with a lot of the usual right wing logos in the side bar: and they burned harry potter.
So I checked the source, and it is for real.
Apparently there was a revival meeting in Shreveport Louisiana. It can’t have been a very big one, Shreveport having a population of 350,000 +, of whom 30 went to the reported event, it appears, so I wouldn’t expect to see an outbreak of Harry Potter burning all over the USA quite yet.
About 30 people gathered for a regional revival Friday night that included a book burning as a statement to reach out to local residents.
“It is allowed for Harry Potter to be taught in our schools, but not the Bible,” International House of Prayer pastor James Crawford said during the Shreveport Regional Unity of Faith Revival.
That is one reason pastors from several denominations and races ripped pages from “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Those and pages from a pornographic magazine were put into a burn pit and set afire as praises bellowed from the congregation.
“As I tore the pages, I felt a generational curse of immorality and perversion breaking off my family,” Adriane Banks said. “I felt it.”
…Crawford said recent natural disasters are a wake-up call.
The ministers also have been fasting for three days and have monthly revival meetings…
The book burning and revival also marked the meeting of a diverse group of ministers, including Elliot McPhatter, of Total Deliverance Church, Young Doo Kim, of the Shreveport-Bossier Presbyterian Church, and John Valdez, of Bossier City Four Square Church.
“We are not concerned with the cultural standard. This standard keeps our congregation holy and our city clean. …,” Valdez said. “We have a supernatural enemy, and we need to be unified to fight. … We have the same mission.”
