Attack on Harry Potter

We read:

"In Harry Potter's world, the Ministry of Magic governs things. In Georgia, the state Board of Education rules over public schools.

These two worlds come together Tuesday when the state board has a public hearing on a parent's request to remove the popular series from Gwinnett County public school libraries. The hearing officer presiding over the appeal will make a recommendation to the state board, which is scheduled to rule on the case during its December meeting.


Apparently the problem is that the stories promote witchcraft. I guess they do. But so what? The Koran promotes Islam, which kills a lot more people. Ban the Koran? The Old Testament says that you should put homosexuals to death (Leviticus 20:13). Ban the Old Testament?
