The crazies are not happy:
A spokesman for the Christian Civic League of Maine (CCL) is calling a pre-release event for the latest “Harry Potter” book — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — a satanically inspired event, an event that was mirrored in bookstores around the globe.
The “Midnight Magic Costume Party” was held last weekend at a Barnes & Noble outlet in Augusta, Maine. CCL spokesman Mike Hein says the event included fortune-telling using a brand of occult tarot cards called “Gypsy Witch.” He also says that the event was held in the “Children’s Department” with several hundred children in attendance.
Hein, who was present at the event, says even he was taken aback by the store’s labeling of that “Children’s Department” activity as divination, which he says should be a clue to any Christian readers and observers that they tie in to the Bible’s warning in Deuteronomy 18 about avoiding such an occult activity.
You heard it here (or, rather, there) first: Barnes & Noble is in the clutches of Satanists. At least that explains their annoyingly high prices.
