No it's not. Most people are not allied with either of these factions (many don't believe they actually exist). There is no satanic conspiracy trying to bring down the christian world and if there is, they are going to need something a bit more potent than Harry. It's been around for a few years now, and nothing has happened.

Maybe Harry is tapping into God's power with his magic. Rowling never specifies the way magic originated in her world or how it operates. God may well be the source. When you look at it, it's in many ways an allegory of the christian story. Harry is jesus, voldemort is satan, etc.

In any case, the story is not really a threat to christians any more than star wars. In Rowling's world, magic is merely the way things are achieved; it is their substitute for technology, weapons, etc. I don't think it will cause children to try and emulate it. If some people are so worried about Harry Potter, then why aren't they afraid of Star Wars causing people to reject God in favour of the force?
