Lost the plot

BBC NEWS | England | Lincolnshire | 'Evil' Harry Potter day cancelled

A primary school cancelled a Harry Potter day over complaints it could lead children into "areas of evil".
Pupils from The Holt Primary School in Skellingthorpe, Lincs, were planning to dress up as witches and wizards.
But the event - to mark the launch of the new JK Rowling book - was scrapped after parents and a local rector expressed concerns about witchcraft.
Headteacher Paul Martin said the rector claimed he was seeking "to lead our children into areas of evil".

Tell the Sky Pilot to sod off - the amazing fact that kids are excited and want to read a book, any book, is an "a posteriori" good thing.
Of course if he had said it about the Koran.. "he went to Pakistan to study Religion".. No, that would be wrong and a very naughty thing to say.
