Most born-agains in the U.S. do not allow their children to read about magic and wizards because they are "of the devil", no competing myths allowed.

What? Really? That seems dodgy. I can't believe that "most" evangelicals don't do Santa on Xmas, Witches on Halloween, Aesop fables, fairy tales, etc.

I hope Dawkins don't take this anti-Potter thing to seriously.

I think he posted a comment on this topic in the Children need to be sprinkled with fairy dust - Libby Purves - Times Online article.
