Ok Buddy, you really don't get it. HP doesn't make us all satanists. It doesn't happen. I'll show you:

Does he? How come he hasn't told us so himself? In any case, I don't believe in either magic or God. This stuff isn't real.

Yes it does. Most sane people know the difference between the two and won't believe any of this stuff seriously, except perhaps little kids who grow out of it later.

No they don't. Most people will not look at things fro God's perspective most of the time and no we don't feel at home in a dark paranormal setting.

No it's not. Reading Harry won't open your mind to magic or evil. People just don't believe it exists.

No they don't, as they have not natural aversion.

Anyway you get the idea. We just don't believe in magic.
