A Slow Day at the Holy See

You'd think being the spiritual leader of the Christian world would be a full time job. Apparently not. It must have been a slow day at the Holy See today, because Pope Benedict had time to publicly disapprove of Harry Potter. I'm not even sure the Pope knows that Harry Potter is a fictional character. The Pope says Harry Potter can somehow "distort Christianity in the soul". Huh? It's just a book.

In fact, I'm beginning to wonder if the Vatican has something against fiction in general. Earlier this year, the Vatican condemned The DaVinci Code. I'm surprised it took them so long, but--again--it's just a work of fiction.

With all of the terrorist crap going on in the world, maybe the Pope should spend more time paying attention to things that are real.
