Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter: Good or Bad Witch part II
Kevin (McGrath): Wow, I've been away from the science fiction/fantasy genre too long; I didn't know there was a fourth Earthsea book!!! Methinks I have some catching up to do! Thanks for the nudge.

To "GUEST, emily": Welcome, welcome, welcome! Relax, you've broken no code of conduct; quite the opposite, in fact. What an intelligent post! I'm especially impressed by your statement: "I think the opposition (which was there before the movie was even announced), is mostly caused by people who fear the acceptance of magic as good or secular in our mostly Abrahamic society. I think this is the root of many people's fear of my faith, as well. The fear is not of our different belief system, but that we presume to study and work with powers and 'technologies' that are usually reserved for very holy people, saints, or gods." Yes, yes, I agree wholeheartedly!

I hope you'll return and post again, many times, and decide to join us as a member. Enjoy the Mudcat!
