    Please limit this poll to fundamental (belive the Bible) Baptists only.

    Someone stated that most fundamental Baptists would say that Harry Potter if fine. I highly doubt that, but it would be interesting to see.

    Please, this poll is for fundamental Baptists only, as to clarify this statement. Thanks.

    Give the devil an "inch" and he'll steal a "yard" of your mind!!!! And he'll keep that up until it is impossible for your mind to "gee-haw" with the mind of Christ!!

    I'm curious as to why anyone would boycott it.

    The OP question is a bit loaded. It asks about "embracing". I'd venture that a majority of Christians don't have a problem with Harry Potter, but don't "embrace" the phenomenon. Voting "no" gives the false impression that the "no" voters automatically have a problem with HP and related genre.

    Hmm... Perhaps a new poll should be started with two questions, one asking whether we should have a problem with HP (or maybe, "accept") and the other asking if we should embrace HP.

    Because someone on another thread stated that most fundamental Baptists would endorse HP. I found that difficult to believe, so I was curious.
