Woman Rewrites Harry Potter as "Christian" Fiction

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, this is real.

 

I'm not sure whether to laugh, cry, throw-up, or some combination thereof.

 

Some excerpts:

Revered Dumbledore beamed.  "Why thank you, little one!"  His voice had a distinctive southern twang to it that made Harry feel so safe and welcome.  He knew in that moment that the Reverend was a man of God.

On the porch was standing a huge, muscular man with a big, manly beard; and he was dressed in a plaid, red shirt, blue jeans, and sturdy, leather boots. His chest was covered in a thick, unruly carpet of coarse, brown hair. He wore a necklace that looked to Harry like a lower case T. Just looking at Harry feel happy, peaceful somehow; but he couldn't say why! [sic]

At a glance, I'd say this is a ham-fisted satire, though, yeah?

 

EDIT - I mean a satire of fundies, not of Harry Potter.

Looks like a clumsy satire to me too, too broad and blunt to score any sharp jabs.

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

Quite possibly, although I can't find anything to confirm that, and several passages seem too knowledgeable of Christian subculture to be satire.  (i.e. I've never read a broad ham-fisted satire that has enough nuance to differentiate between different denominations of Christians.)

 

Rushmore and I have been discussing that over on my facebook page.

OK, I took a look at more bits of it. It's sort of funny, but surely not genuine.
