Do Twilight, Harry Potter open door to the Devil?

THE appointment of a new exorcist by Sydney's Catholic Church precedes a warning by a senior clergyman that generation Y risks a dangerous fascination with the occult fuelled by the Twilight and Harry Potter series.

Julian Porteous, the auxiliary bishop of Sydney, warns that pursuing such ''alternative'' relaxation techniques as yoga, reiki massages and tai chi may encourage experimentation with ''deep and dark spiritual ideas and traditions''.

Link SMH:

Why does crap like this get in the paper? What could possibly be gained by giving idiotic ideas like this the credibility of printing them in the paper?

We could have used this print space to further dig into the rape culture of the catholic church instead of giving them a platform for making deranged excuses.

Why don't they stand up and take a bit of fucking responsibility for their own actions. Something like: "Lots of Catholic Priests raped and destroyed the innocence of children. We're gonna find every one of these bastards and excommunicate them. Then we're gonna gather up all of these people we broke and look after them for the rest of their lives with the billions of dollars a year that we are given by people who attend our churches and the vast government tax breaks we receive."

Instead, we get an "it's you're own fault for doing yoga".

Fuck Off!
