So i been watching the entire Harry Potter series(dont Judge Me!!!) and  i keep thinking what kinda parents allows their kids to attend wizard school and what kinda school administration lets kids run around the halls when a killer or monster is on the school grounds?

just thinking about it blows my mind and its make it hard to believe or take the movies serious, i mean the school should have bn shut down ages ago if parents actually cared and complained. I mean the Slitheran dad with the long hair goes to the school when his obnoxious son gets scratched by the griffin horse thing and we're expected to believe that no other parents has gotten lawyers or the wizard council to shut it down when their sons and daughters are killed regularly inside the school halls?

LOL Well, among many other things, there is bullying in schools, and some parents don't do anything about it. My point is that some parents don't care what happens to their offspring.  Some, not all.

What blows my mind is how the keep saying "he who must not be named", its easier to just say That guy, kinda like the pill, everyone knows what your talking about w/o being specific.

It's Hogwarts. A school for wizards and witches, of course there are monsters lurking around the school. And if you read the books, they are parents who complained about the safety of the school.

@castleking: @The Dark Huntress: @_Wildcard_: 
Just another religious fanatic that likely hasn't even seen the films or bothered picking up the books. The only frustrating part is what she does to these children, brainwash and push her own agendas on them under the name of SWEET JESUS!
She probably hates Merlin too. MERLIN IS A WARLOCK, WARLOCK = EVIL! blah blah blah.

If you're on a comic book forum and see something wrong with how unrealistic Harry Potter is, then there's a problem.

I love harry potter but I always thought a normal human would break a wizards ass lol.
Seriously, wizards are probably much weaker and more out of shape then the normal person. And a wizard still has enough speed to dodge spells.
If Voldemort had come up on me and tried to start shiiii I woulda dodged his green blast and mike tysoned his face man
Problem effin solved.
A muggle man defeats the Dark Lord with one punch. ONE PUNCH!!!

And you know what else I figured out why Voldemort had never really expanded to the united states. He stayed in England because if he ran up to some doods in the states chances are he would got his as shot lol.
Problem effin solved.
A gang banger defeats the Dark Lord with one bullet. ONE BULLET!!!

@castleking:

Only one kid had died at Hogwarts up until the final book. And the big point of Book 2 was that they were planning on shutting the school down for fear that it would happen again.

yeh, but the level of irresponsibility of the school staff amazes me..

how can they condone life and death games?
the triwizard tournament fighting dragons, underwater creatures and whatnot... i mean seriously why arent the teachers and dumbledore in jail for child endangerment?

@isaac_clarke: poor deluded women, if christianity would of killed a 13 year old boy (a fictonal character or not) then i spit on that so called god. It's like rorschach said God doesn't make the world this way we do. It really made me feel wierd watching that video, a bit upsetting.

It's most upsetting 'cos she reduces a room full of children to tears. I mean, I get trying to get people to be good and true to each other, but making you hate yourself? Let's not get too carried away. But regarding the Harry Potter thing, she's just gone crackers IMO. There are some bat**** crazy people out there!!

@xkoenig: i cant say i believe in god in the form he is described in the bible. I do believe there is a creator though. Something had to have created the universe, i dont buy into that hole big bang theory, after all if it was true something must have created the elements that formed the big bang (it didnt just happen out of nothing)

My only thing against the series (at least the movies) would be the fact that everything seems too convienient.

....I spelt that right, right? Internet Explorer doesn't do spell check.

@castleking: Don't judge you? For watching Harry Potter. If I was going to judge you it would be for seemingly not having read the books.

Keep in mind, Harry Potter was written for children. No one ever rants and raves about my favorite book from my childhood, Tangle and the Firesticks.

@sesquipedalophobe:  It started out as a children's book but has transcended generations. The very parents who read the books to thier children fell in love with them and a generation of children will bring that love to their children in the future I believe.
