Bleh. Apparently a woman I know doesn't approve of the fact that I have read the Harry Potter books. I should rest assured, however, knowing that she is personally asking God not to hold it against me.

Some people...

If only they felt that way

If only they felt that way about their own rubbish, right?

I wonder if J.K. Rowling feels that way about her for reading the bible?

While I normally don't have

While I normally don't have a problem of people saying "I'll pray for you", I would get mad if it was over Harry Potter.  (Besides, how often do you think they actually follow through?)

I hope that when the world comes to an end I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to.

When someone says they'll

When someone says they'll pray for me, I usually try to suggest a different hobby they can take up instead.

I find it weird when people pray for me.

What did people make of the latest Harry Potter book? I thoroughly enjoyed it! The latest film however was shit.

When I am told I am being

When I am told I am being prayed for I always just ask that they play the lottery for me. They have a better chance of accomplishing something that way.

I absolutely cannot believe

I absolutely cannot believe that people make a fuss about the Harry Potter books.  It's fucking fiction!!!  I am always astounded when religious groups gang up on works of fiction.
