Well written, well said.

Too much is made of "Christ-like" figures in literature, esp. Potter. Now, to throw a twist: what of Aslan of Narnia and the Lion you draw in your essay?

Solid column. Here's some textual support you may have missed: in Harry Potter 1, we learn that one of Dumbledore's claims to fame is the defeat of defeat of the dark wizard Grindlewald in 1945. That name and that year were not chosen by accident.

You won't get any hate mail from me! It's an excellent summary, and you reached a much better conclusion than I.

It's a whole lot better than the lame "Republicans for Voldemort" T-shirt.
