Harry vs the Dingbats

LAWRENCEVILLE - Just when it seemed Harry Potter had fought and won his latest battle, he will be facing yet another a series of challenges. And this time, it will be at the state level.

Laura Mallory, a Loganville mother of four, is appealing the Gwinnett Board of Education's unanimous decision to keep the best-selling books on school shelves.

Her appeal will continue the debate that began when Mallory filed complaints against each of the six books, writing that they included "evil themes, witchcraft, demonic activity, murder, evil blood sacrifice, spells and teaching children all of this."

*Ahem* It is important to remember that Ms. Mallory has not even read the books because they are "too long" for her. She got her info from "christian message boards and Harry Potter fan sites". Yep, that's right. Christian message boards and fan sites. Fabulous.

(i.e.) The link to the article where Ms Mallory is said not to have read the books is dead, alas.
