Supporters of Harry Potter vs. Laura Mallory sign now

Since 1997 when Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was first published in the UK, the Harry Potter series has been capturing the imaginations of the young and old alike, both in the UK and all over the world. Published in more than 63 languages and selling over 300 millions copies collectively of the six books, the Harry Potter series is without a doubt the most popular bit of reading ever. The film adaptations are now the most successful series ever with over $3.5 billion in box office receipts. The series promotes morality, love, friendship, loyalty, reason, good vs. evil where good should prevail, and a realistic perspective of life in which good and bad things happens.







Although the series is about students who attend a boarding school which teaches witchcraft and wizardry, the books are not "texts of the devil" as some would like to think them. They do not promote worship of the devil and make no mention of such. The books are purely fantasy novels no different from The Chronicles of Narnia, The Wizard of Oz, or The Lord of the Rings.







Therefore, this petition is a response to Laura Mallory, a mother from Loganville, Georgia (USA), who has crusaded to have the Harry Potter series removed from classrooms in Gwinnett County Georgia, simply on the basis that her religion considers Harry Potter to be a "demon child who worships the devil" and that the books are un-Christian and are teaching children witchcraft. She believes the books corrupt the minds of children and will lead them to a path of suicide, depression, and immorality, and has even claimed that the books have influenced school shootings and continues to reference the Columbine High School shootings. She has NEVER read a Harry Potter book ever.







Through this petition, it is my hope that we may end Laura Mallory's ignorant crusade to ban Harry Potter books, and that she may never publicly contest the series ever again, either by court matters or school boards or complaints to school principals. She does not have the right to control what thousands of other children read in Gwinnett County and should no longer have a platform with which to spread her ignorance.

    I'm curious to know if Laura Mallory ever read any classic fairy tales to her kids, because I cant think of one that does not have some kind of magic. I think if she read the books or watched a movie she would see similar qualities to herself. (The Dursle

    I have been reading the Harry Potter series since I was 11 and in no way have I been influenced to worship the devil. Laura Mallory is a religious fanatic and should be banned from ever challenging the Harry Books again.

    Laura Mallory, please give it up- or at least fully read one of the books. You are sadly misinformed which you should have realized when you won the Post's idiot of the year. Congradulations on that by the way.

    Harry Potter remains and timeless children's classic. Mallory had never read a single book, it's very ignorant of her to try to ban a book she had never read from us children simply because she doesn't like how it sounded like.

    I am a devout christian and am a huge fan of Harry Potter books and all of the movies. I love my lord with all my heart but this lady is giving the christian faith and it's worshipers a bad name.

    This lady should read: "What's A christian to do with Harry Potter?" It's a very good book that presents both sides of the argument without being offensive or demeaning to anyone.

    It's just plain unconstitutional.

    We must choose between what is easy and what is right - we choose what is right, and so are going to fight Ms Mallory all the way.

    She is really taking stuff out of context and to its extreme
