Abstract

Opinion: Objections to "The Sorcerer's Stone" remind us that some believe sorcery to be devil's work and others that it is fantasy. The beliefs and opinions of all families should be respected. The school system allows children to not participate in activities if their parents' ask they be excused, just as children are excused from classes during the week to attend religious classes.
