"The greatest of these is love"
Catholica, Indica, Et Cetera. The occasional blog of Fr. Gaurav Shroff
Does someone in the Vatican have too much time on his hands? You'd think if they want to revive the Bonfire of the Vanities they'd choose something a little more subversive than Harry Potter.
Luckily there's enough pro-Potter Catholic voices out there too. Just because it appears in L'Osservatore doesn't make it either Vatican policy, and certainly not doctrine. :) And, despite the newswire's attempts, I don't think evil Papa Rottweiler is behind this move. It's not even a move, it's an opinion.
from Jimmy Akin's blog:In actuality, what L’Osservatore Romano published was a debate between pro-Potter and anti-Potter writers, which conveys an entirely different impression about the newspaper’s (and the Vatican’s) position.
Thanks. I figured there was some distortion in the report. Haven't really had the time to do the research into it. Nor am I surprised that "x" morphs into a totally divergent "y" in a secular news report involving the Vatican.
