Harry and his prayer stick.

If you've never seen any of the Harry Potter movies or read any of the books on which they're based, here's pretty much all you need to know: they're about a little boy who discovers he has magic powers; they take place in a world full of wizards; they try to teach kids about self-reliance and tolerance; and they were conceived by a wicked godless hag woman in the deepest pit of Hell.

Unfortunately, kids love them for some reason. Probably because the Devil presides over this broken and perverted version of the flawless world created by God, but also maybe because they've got a real tight narrative and strong characters. So, what are you gonna do if your kids keep bothering you to read these evil books in defiance of the Fifth Commandment?
