Author warns of the ‘Pottermania' dark side
Steve Wohlberg, bestselling author of Exposing Harry Potter and Witchcraft: The Menace Beneath the Magic (Destiny Image, 2007), understands that Wiccans love nature, don't believe in a "Christian devil" and are non-violent. No witch basher, he believes in religious freedom. Nevertheless, he is concerned about the social impact of the occult, Christian Newswire reported.
While most consider anti-Potterism to be unwarranted, concerns remain among many parents over a surging interest in "Wicca" (witchcraft) among teens. Increasing numbers frequent Wicca websites, cast "Love and Money Spells" and practice "white magic." Wohlberg suggests it is not just fictional fun, but something truly supernatural and dangerous going on.
Wohlberg warns that Wiccans summoning "nature spirits" in their rituals enter dangerous territory. "Occultism has a dark side," he warned, "and practitioners can easily become trapped like a fly in a spider web." Ex-witches themselves share riveting testimonies in Wohlberg's book.
"There's plenty of real occultism embedded in Rowling's fantasy works," he said, "and in spite of naïve popular opinion, Pottermania is aiding Wicca's growth." Even the founder of a major Witchcraft school agrees (his website is called a "Cyber Hogwarts").
Wohlberg is the Speaker/Director of White Horse Media in Fresno, Calif., TV producer (Amazing Discoveries, Israel in Prophecy, Hour of the Witch), radio host (World News and the Bible) and the author of 14 books. He's been a guest on over 500 radio and TV shows, including CNN Radio, USA Radio, American Family Radio, Cable Radio Network, Information Radio Network, Focus 4 and The Harvest Show.
