For a kid, Harry Potter has a lot of enemies. J.K. Rowling's series of books about an 11-year-old orphan, a student at the fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, has engendered plenty of praise, criticism, debate, and hours of media coverage that has followed it all. At the core of criticism leveled against the series is its treatment of witchcraft and the occult.
