LET me comment on the H.P. phenom, especially "muggledom":
The human spirit is created to yearn for the supernatural. That's a given - God set in us a desire to see the natural overridden (not by brooms!) by the supernatural. That's why everybody loves Hallowe'en who doesn't know of its satanic origins, or doesn’t see the need to honor Christ. I used to ADORE the all-black "Headless Horseman" picture in my first grade reader. (Try to imagine!) I LOVED the Gypsy doll in the Nancy Drew mystery that was warm - supernaturally WARM...Oh, it thrilled and chilled my spine, but that was BEFORE I saw the blind see, the lame run, the deaf hear, the homosexual freed from those chains, and the drug addict INSTANTLY sobered up and delivered, all in Jesus' Mighty Name. (People I KNOW, by the way!) WOW! The REAL THING - Jesus - puts Mickey Mouse magic in the shade by miles and miles. Of course, with satan's magic, there ARE thrills, and no consecration or change is required, but his magic is NO help whatever when you're flat on your back with a fatal disease or in an airplane plummeting to earth. Only those who follow the Savior of the whole world, and each person who CHOOSES Him get THOSE kinds of rescues.
As to Muggles: the author Rowlings, who is satan's strategist here on earth, not so deceptively relegates those of us who refuse to delve in or operate in the Black Arts because of our love for and dependence on Jesus, relegates us (as I said) to an unpleasant, mean, stupid group of society - just short of wearing the yellow star - to be looked down on, to be sure, as very undesirable. Well, she’s got a HUGE thing going, and the results of discrimination against Muggles (us) will soon be felt as little kids sneak off and practice their newly-learned witchcraft (which God REPEATEDLY forbids in His Word) and become more “donkey-eared and donkey-tailed” by the minute (with apologies to Pinnochio).
BOOKS OF THE TIMES | 'HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX' (NYTimes)
For Famous Young Wizard, a Darker Turn
By MICHIKO KAKUTANI
(From last 2 paragraphs) It's as if the boy next door had been miraculously transported from the Muggle world we all know to a magical realm where dementors and thestrals lurk, a world where people can pour their extra thoughts into a "Pensieve" or whisk themselves from one place to another with a Portkey. ..........
As this volume, like its predecessors, attests, Ms. Rowling has imagined this universe .....The wizards, witches and Muggles who live there share complicated, generations-old relationships with one another and inhabit a place with traditions, beliefs and a history all its own — a Grimm place where the fantastic and fabulous are routine, but also a place subject to all the limitations and losses of our own mortal world. ..(My addition here: All the while this frollicking generation - starting in SECOND GRADE, mind you! - plumments into an all-encompassing downward spiral of evil, which drags them toward the hopeless black eternity of hell. D.)

You know what? Even if it turns out to be the BIG one, and all proof is in, there are those in Iraq, in France, Germany AND in the USA ( I was visiting in one of their homes this week) who HATE the war, HATE President Bush, HATE the things of God, and MANY of those will flatly DENY any found evidence, even going so far as to claim we (the USA) PLANTED the evidence! The moral of this story is: there is only One Truth, and that is Jesus Christ, the Son of the One Living God. As the last days rush toward conclusion, no truth is going to stand anyway, but Jesus, Lord of All. See News Heading Below:

Well, DUH! Spiritual hurdles for sure! Disobedient to God hurdles. No, I'm not a "homophobe;" there's no such thing in Christendom, anyway. True Christians love homosexuals; I have former homosexual friends who are loosed and free from it, and I have friends who still choose the lifestyle, but I draw the line when they REQUIRE ME to agree with them, and pay (money) for them to enjoy THEIR lifestyle...which MY non-militant homosexual friends don't expect or demand. I do get VERY tired when homosexuals lie about their numbers, though. Instead of their claimed 10% in America, they've now admitted a gross manipulaton of numbers; it's less than 1% in America - which is too large, anyway, but HEY! I'm willing to let anyone sink their own boat (these are NEW Testament Times, you know) as long as I'm allowed to speak God's mind on the subject without being persecuted, despised, hated, given black looks, etc. - especially since they're so big on being persecuted themselves . Check out today's NYTimes headline followed by one last week from Worthy news.

This is the same guy of whom I wrote: HAS THIS GUY LOST HIS MIND????????????????????? on Thursday, September 12, 2002
Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien in a CBC interview on September 11, 2002 linked the Sept. 11 suicide attacks to the perceived arrogance and selfishness of the United States and the West. Chretien, the first leader of a western major nation to suggest that the suicide hijackers might have been motivated by what he describes as the misguided policies of a rich and powerful West that did not understand the need for restraint, is seen with President George W. Bush at the Fort Street Cargo Facility in Detroit, Michigan, Sept. 9. Photo by Larry Downing/Reuters
