    But i can’t feel anything in saying that…

    Nevertheless, Harry Potter being burned? Strange. Is it because the author revealed that his mentor was gay?

    Maybe this is a part of a guerilla campaign.

  6. Zsommand says:

    Btw why do they have a cross on their head?

  7. Marina says:

    I not read Harry Potter, but heard very much reviews. It seems like ordinary fairytale.

    Can someone tell me why the issue?

    Russian orthodox theocracy.

    Give them control over Russian nuclear stockpile, tanks and attack helicopters, and you will see hell.

    Russia will be from Pacific to Atlantic. With “Golden domed” Moscow in the center.

  10. John from Kansas says:

    …or thier American counterparts?

  11. mad1982 says:

    Those men look better than actors in the (Harry Potter) movie

  12. Boris Abramov says:

    Do these people belong to the Moscow Patriarchy of the Orthedox Church, or are they a separate branch or sect much like those annoying Jehovah’s witnesses?

    Also, I have read some Harry Potter books, and I do agree with Marina. They arn’t diferent from any other fairytale. So why are Cathilics, Evangelists and some Orthodox Christians are so strongly opposed to it?

    • D says:

      Its a very popular series and I did not agree that the church found it satanic becuase of the witchcraft involved. Its a goddamn childrens book, so what?

      But when the author uses this popularity to introduce the idea of homosexuality to children…then it’s no longer a childrens story, its propoganda.

      Would you also like her to include beasteality in the next version? How bout group orgies and swingers?

      Sex and sexual preferences do not belong in a children’s book.

      • Boris Abramov says:

        I do agree, it does seem a bit over the top. I certainly wouldn’t want my kids to be reading a book which promotes homosexuallty. But in her defence, I don’t think she ever made homosexualty explicit in her books. Perhaps it is done in film? I don’t know, I haven’t seen it.

  13. John from Kansas says:

    Heh. Very good cynical.

  14. D says:

    Different religion, ideas, practices, different race, different way of thinking, different goals, different land… I could keep going but I dont know what you are trying to say, the only thing in common with Iranian mulah’s is the beard.

    • D says:

      “fundamental concept of suppression of ideas through book burning ”

      What about fundamental concept of feeding ideas through children’s books?

      If I had a kid, I would not want him/her reading about a homosexual wizard. That should not be in a childrens book and no matter what these people look like, their views are shared by many. JK Rowling stepped over the line.

      But when Iran burns history books thats totally different.

      Can we play again?

      • D says:

        I won’t. And I’m sure alot of other parents won’t. But something that packages itself as one thing (a childrens book or a music channel) but turns out to be another (a book dealing with adult issues or a dating channel for homosexuals) then its misleading.

        If she wants to bring homosexuality to light, then write a book about it. Don’t hide it as an alternate motive in something unrelated. It says that this kind of behaviour is ok and tolerated when its really a taboo and uncommon. Like I said..next thing we’ll be telling our kids about beasteality and sodomism. She should have made the wizard anoying, femimine, infected with std’s, and outkast and ridiculed by the other wizards. Then explain why he cant have kids or get married. That is the true face of homosexuality. Not magical powers.

        • Dixieland says:

          Homosexuality seems to be trendy. Every show on TV has to have the token Homosexual and now they have to be associated with children’s books. I can’t explain homosexuality or why homosexuals exists, but I do believe a large percentage of people who profess to be homosexuals have deeper issues that they try to suppress by living the homosexual lifestyle. Just my opinion…. and I am by no means an expert…

        • D says:

          Nowhere in the book, but when she talks, kids listen. She has a responsibility as a famous childrens author to say the right things. These comments will make her an outkast herself. I’m sure you wont hear much else from her anytime soon. Speaking at schools? Nope. On childrens programming? Not anymore. I doubt she will even do many interviews at all after this.

          • John from Kansas says:

            Heh. And I can imagine that Rowling’s publisher just about choked when he heard about her statement.

            • John from Kansas says:

              You may be right about the PR. But it would seem to be a risky move for a childrens book. To me it seems to be much ado about nothing. One of those things you hear about, shake your head and move on.

    Hagrid, nooo!! Why are you with the Slytherins doing this!?

  16. Pete says:

    they should do a hunger strike!

  17. chicken says:

    Oh wow these guys again!

    Its nice to see them again, I love the hats that they wear, does anybody know where I can get something like these?

  18. parkertron says:

    What does a homosexual wizzard do? is it worse than being just ordinary homosexual?

  19. Dixieland says:

    Let me guess… You are the smartest person you know and you consider yourself above average intelligence. Am I right?

    • Wout says:

      Hehe, I think Pacific N W has got a point, though. I think it might not have to do with any supposed homosexuality, too. It’s just the fact that some belief opposes anything to do with magic; even fictional. Just what I think, I don’t know.

      • Dixieland says:

        The thing is we have no idea why they burned those books. They are entitled to do that. The quickest way to determine if a argument is baseless is to see if it includes an insult.

  20. sputnik-dva says:

    Rowling is just trying to be controversial and get attention, or she wouldn’t have said it at all. Whatever she says now, it’s irrelevant to the book. And it’s not even the latest they’re burning in the picture (it looks like they’re only burning one) it’s the second (or third, I forgot) so I doubt it has anything to do with that. Not that any other reason makes more sense. I don’t even like Harry Potter. The writing is awful. The whole thing is overrated.

  21. Crumb says:

    They are protesting over the lack of bearded people in the harry potter series!

  22. mr.fit says:

    of all of them, the fat bearded guy in the last photo is perhaps the scariest, he looks like some kind of sinister santa claus

  23. NY sorab says:

    Aaaah, really good guys. They do belong to Moscow Patriarchy of Orthodox Church.

    But this one is my favorite. Burning of american quasi kabbalist-porno-witch Antimadona.

    THIS IS P A T H E T I C!!!!

    Let nothing tarnish your memories of Albus Dumbledore!

    Or as the French say Dumbly-dore!

    Its a book people… a book. B-O-O-K.

    Let the dead rest in peace (R.I.P Dumbledore)

  28. TUALMASOK says:

    Good burning!

  29. jmndos says:

    Maybe we should burn their benzes..

  30. Wizards Wand says:

    JK Rowling discovered witchy sounding names for instance toadflax, goutwort, grommel, and others in Culpeper’s Complete Herbal, a famous book of herbal lore from the 1600s.

    They look like Serbian Chetniks. LOL
