Harry Potter and the Christian critics

Mark Shea, in First Things, answers arguments critical of the Harry Potter books of "the sort one only finds in the hothouse of Extremely Earnest Conservative Christianity," and concludes:
One need not find the novels to their taste. One can complain about Rowling's style, etc. But the assertion that the books are spiritually dangerous or anti-Christian is, in my view, unfounded and, indeed, counterfactual.
