Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter: Good or Bad Witch part ll
I was about to pitch in earler with my tale of how my two 15 year old daughters were frightened by a 'Christian' fundementalist chasing them down a busy shpooing street and damning their souls to hell because they wore goth clothes.

Glad I didn't. Thanks John - it is good to see a sensible and balanced view. I realise that the Christian label is just one that these loonies have hijacked for their own ends - like so many other good causes that have been kidnapped by the extreemists.

You have made me realise once again that there is good and bad everywhere. While it is the bad that gets the headlines, the good is a much larger faction and will win out in the end.

It is tarring all members of any faction, be it religious, cultural or racial with the same broad brush that generates the intollerance that creates wars.

Thanks again John.
