Trying to buy the UK Harry Potter ebooks
« on: September 10, 2018, 11:21:38 PM »
But the Pottermore site won't let me. There used to be a way to gift them to yourself, but the UK versions just don't show up on the US site anymore.

Anybody in the UK (or Canada) willing to "gift" them to me? I'd paypal you the cost first, of course.

Aren't Harry Potter books "evil"? I would like to know because I liked the movies?

Opinions vary on that. I've never found them detrimental.

This is a comment to a video from sensum fidelium youtube channel" "Fr Chad Ripperger in one of his excellent talks said that J K Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books, wrote them under the influence of the occult practice of automatic writing . Fr Ripperger screenshotted her admittance of this fact which she later removed. Truly, the source of the Harry Potter books is Hell. For anyone with these books in their house burn them and tell others to do the same."

It's a polarizing topic, I guess.

Edit: Just realized that this would probably fit better under the Buy Sell Trade subforum.  ::)

I really enjoyed Harry Potter movies but after reading some stuff about the author and the books I decided not to watch these movies. There is something mysteriously  enticing about the series and the movies. the fact that real spells and demonic names are used makes me cringe.

Why the UK version? Trying to learn to lace up those trainers?
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

My pastor reaffirmed just this past Sunday the evil nature of Harry Potter and the inspirations the author used to write. Stay away.

I'd like to read them as they were originally written. :)

I fail to see how anything about Harry Potter is particularly evil. Magic in-universe is an inborn, genetic trait. It's not gained by making pacts with Satan. And beyond Voldemort's making of Horcruxes, there's nothing really occultish or demonic about the magic in the books.

Edit: Oh, Bernadette: Are you getting the ebooks with the animated pictures? If so please let me know if they're worth the buy!  ;D

I tried the first one with the animated pictures, and wasn't impressed with it. Looking back, I don't think I had the animation activated.

Voldemort did nothing wrong.

We must secure the existence of our kind, and a future for pureblood children.

Gas the goblins, magical war now
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.

    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?

    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.
