    Yet another substantiation from the Lord for my banning of the Harry Potter effluvia.

    I won't say I have not been tempted - even by the endorsement of board members :( - as an avid reader of SciFi & Fantasy.

    It looks like Rowling's just wants to make Christians upset if the reporters conclusions are correct.

    I am wondering if the books reveal this or if it is just in the mind of Rowlings.

    Wow, she's a "prophetess", too!

    I find it hard to believe that a dead guy, Richard Harris--a guy who played "Cromwell" of all things--is gay.

    That is what is odd about the whole thing...there is NOTHING in the books or movies that would
    even cause one to wonder about this...

    In only one of the movies do they have a dance, but even in that..nothing points to anything
    one way or another as far as the character's go..except for maybe one of the young men having
    a crush on one of the girls..but as far as other characters...nothing is implied one way or another..

    So as far as I'm concerned...to even bring it up is rather misplaced..and irrelevent to the theme of the story at all...

    Ditto. There is nothing in the book to reveal this. Rowling essentially admitted that she read fan-fiction and let it determine what Dumbledore was.

    What I don't understand is why anyone would ever say anything negative about the greatest author of this century, who has obviously had the greatest impact of any writer (except perhaps {insert genuflection} The Most Super Duper Rev. NT Wright) this millennium.

    Obviously, this announcement has nothing to do with the story, the fact that Rowling is most sincere of Christians that we all could learn from, or the fact that her prose is superior to Milton, Shakespeare and Dickens.

    I was just defending Richard Harris, the most awesome actor from "Cromwell."

    I forgot to add a premise that will probably be missed otherwise: Richard Harris played Dumbledore in the movies.

    Thanks for that. I was raking my slow brain trying to resolve a non sequiter. :lol:

    Err...he played Dumbledore until he died. I don't know who played Dumbledore in the latest movie.

    Don't you see? The kid's life is awful until he discovers the great masters who understand secret teachings, which are beyond the abilities of most people. Once he masters the technology involved, he overcomes his fear and gains control of the world around him. This is Enlightenment rationalism with wands and fairy dust. It combines two spirits of our age -- gnosticism and technocracy. Am I the only one to notice this?

    Richard Harris played Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore in the first two films. Michael Gambon handled the role in the last three and will reprise it in next year's Half-Blood Prince (2008). Gambon, notoriously secretive about his private life married in his early twenties, had a son, and is now living with his girlfriend who supposedly presented him with a son earlier this year.

    I am wondering if Rowling's is priming the pump to introduce the next movies revelation about Rowling's characters. I am willing to bet it is something the film Makers want to introduce, after the fact that there is no such revelation in the books.

    Never was interested in the books in fact I always thought of them as "gay" in the slang sense and now know that they truly are in the literal sense.

    I liked the movies and bought the DVD's. My youngest son read the first book. I thought they were good movies. Especially when it comes to teaching about friendships.

    And I don't like the term gay being used the way you used it Travis. It really doesn't fit since the thing you are describing isn't as horrendous as the sin you are calling it. Hyperbole isn't necessary here. Just my humble opinion

    Jacob, while I applaud your defense of Harris (I too really enjoyed the movie), I find it tough to do so when he has such a girlie hairstyle in the film. Pageboy haircut on the Lord Protector of England just takes away the fire...

    The books aren't gay. See above comments.

    When my wife and I view shows and movies from when we were growing up we can see plainly now the very "gay" figures that were not apparent then. They were just flamboyant. Now there are a lot of characters who could "come out of the closet."

    I've never read the books, but I have seen the movies (I'm not interested in it enough to waste my time with the books) so I am limited by what the director puts in the film. Thus far, there has been nothing to hint of Dumbledore's sexuality. Nothing! It is a non-topic. This leads me to believe one of two things: Either the author, for whatever reason, is simply trying to drum up support from the gay community and/or she is preparing fans for what the director is going to do with the movie.

    The word of God says: "Do not allow a sorceress to live" (Ex. 22:18). Such wizzardry should not be condoned by Christians. :mad:

    But Jesus got rid of that law. ;) That was for the Old Testament. Israel was a theocracy. We are under grace now.

    OK, let's think about this.

    No where in the Harry Potter series of books does Dumbledore claim to be gay. Nothing in the books make it necessary that he is gay. And supposedly, there will be no more books in the series. So within the limits of the Harry Potter universe, can anyone (including the author) claim for a fact that Dumbledore is gay?

    I say no! :judge:

    It is only Rowling's opinion that Dumbledore is gay. As long as she has not added to the universe of Harry Potter by writing additional books that demonstrate conclusively that Dumbledore is in fact gay, then it remains her opinion and nothing more. The universe of Harry Potter is limited to the 7 book series and nothing more.

    I am of this same opinion. But to what end? The only thing I can come up with is that the gay lobby is insisting that all of Hollywood's output reflect their own twisted world view.
