Harry Potter Gets A Christian Retelling, Minus The Magic
A woman has rewritten Harry Potter, dropping the magic and replacing it with Christianity, and now some are calling misogynistic.By Ben Lawson | September 25, 2014
Here's a riddle: what happens if you replace the magic in Harry Potter with Christianity? You end up with Holy Potter and the Half-Blood Prince of Darkness!... Ok, that was bad, but it's sort of what happened in a fan-fiction retelling of J.K. Rowling’s famous book series.
One woman has created her own version of the beloved series on FanFiction.net replacing magic with Christian values. She explains her kids asked to read the series but she didn't "want them turning into witches," so she decided to make a few changes...
...such as replacing magic with prayer, turning Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry into Hogwarts School of Prayer and Ministry, which is run by Reverend Albus Dumbledore and his wife Minerva, a school teacher from the J.K. Rowling books demoted to a school cook in this retelling. Also, Snape is head of Gryffindor and Ron is in Slytherin.
