Hilary White of LifeSiteNews says that the influence of Harry Potter is now changing the spiritual climate and preferences among teens. They are being drawn into the language and mechanics of occult practices. One book that gives instructions to teenage girls on witchcraft has sold 150,000 copies. Films and television shows about teenagers and young people involved in witchcraft and the occult are now proliferating. Bookstores have large sections on “esoterica” next to the religion and philosophy sections. And of course, Harry Potter is the best selling children’s book of all time. It is, a primer on witchcraft. More than 400 million copies have been translated into 67 languages. The whole world is being indoctrinated into the occult.

British author, J.K. Rowling, is the highest-earning novelist in history. Three years after Harry Potter, Harvey writes, a review of television programs, major children’s book publishers, and popular youth websites, “should more than confirm our initial warnings.”
“Sorcery and witchcraft have become the hottest themes in youth culture and education for the first time in modern Western civilization.”

An unprecedented amount of the occult material is aimed directly at children and teenagers. An entire generation has been disconnected from the faith of their fathers – or at least, their grandfathers – without objection. Anyone who dares to object is treated as irrationally reactive. “Children are being lovingly primed to embrace paganism by movies, games, TV, the internet and countless sorcery-friendly books.”An entire book publishing sub-industry has emerged focused on occult materials aimed at teens. Large chain bookshops like Indigo in Canada and Borders in the US, and WHSmith and Blackwell’s in the UK, routinely feature large sections on the occult with plenty of practical how-to manuals.The number of self-professed young witches and occult practitioners has grown markedly in the last ten years in America. The kids are taking a cue from the homosexual activist handbook, equating any criticism of their interests as “hate.”

Television and media add to the charm of the witchcraft for teens with such wildly successful shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. Too many parents are dismissive of the tongue-in-cheek nature of the shows. Buffy, features a lesbian witch as a main character. Sabrina is a Teenage Witch. All the characters are hip, well-dressed teens with special powers that set them apart, and above, their peers.

Christians who express concerns are treated as “unenlightened dullards.”
