Hi flowertower. Welcome to the HP board. I cannot speak for the person that said it, but they probably meant all the Christians they know within their particular group. I welcome discussions like this because I believe they help to open people up to other perspectives.
Many people live in vacuums, don't they (not a literal vacuum, mind you)? They don't get to leave their social groups that they grew up with and see the world for all that it is. That leads to such a small palette to experiment with. It's also like a box of crayons. I remember as a kid getting that box of 64 crayons. Wow! Who knew all those colors existed? And then, of course, the crayon sharpener was the coolest thing ever.
Ah, I suppose it's a silly analogy, but if you live with the box of 12 crayons all your life, how would know any others exist? It's the same with anything else, really.

PLS, I just re-read every single message and I don't know where in this thread you read "ALL Christians hate Harry Potter". Even the original poster didn't say that. I think you might have misunderstood what you read!
Or, come on back and quote the line that upset you so much, because you've got me wondering!
