Do they really? Mission presidents, I mean?

When the Harry-Potter-is-satanic debate was first flaring up in the 
Netherlands, my eldest daughter went to church camp (must have been the 
first time because I don't recall her sisters going) and, because I'd 
seen a newspaper cutout in another Orthodox church with dire warnings to 
parents, discouraged her from packing her Harry Potter book (she had 
only the one then). 

She came home telling me that they'd been read to from it every night as 
a bedtime story-- by a priest.
