Stop being on my side! You're making my side look stupid!!

So, I found this on Sam's livejournal. It's a link to a Christian fundamentalist comic book which is parodying Harry Potter and it's... I can't...

There are just no words for how stupid this is. It has to be seen to be believed.

Apparently, according to this comic, reading and knowledge are bad and will get you right on God's naughty list. Also, magic and sorcery are real and a major threat to your soul (I don't remember sorcery being one of the seven deadly sins, but it's been a while since I was in Sunday school...), and when Ari Potiphar's (yeah -- who came up with that name??) parents were teenagers, they were into that sort of thing and conjured up some big green scaly demon.

But they're better now. (Seriously. It says that.)

Uh huh.

It just makes me hurt. Honestly, I can't quite figure out how anyone would think that way. I mean, SERIOUSLY think that way. It boggles the mind. I just can't wrap my brain around it. I really really try to be a tolerant person. I go out of my way to try to see things from other peoples' points of view. And, OK. You don't want your kids reading Harry Potter for religious reasons. That's OK by me. I don't agree with it, but that's your perogative.

But this is just stupid.

Seriously. I thought these people would be against crack, but apparently...

And the flying pig? How is that NOT an emissary of Satan? I'm just saying.
