But I've read Harry Potter and I don't believe in witchcraft or magic. I read them for entertainment.

You should really be bashing on the Twilight series.
What are you talking about? Twilight is an excellent series for young girls! I wrote a post about it on here:

Now, I've heard some say that the "Twilight" books by Stephanie Meyer are just another series of Satanic, blasphemous literature like "Harry Potter" or "the Chronicles of Narnia". However, while investigating this new phenomenon, I found it may not be all that bad. Sure, it deals with dark themes, and yes, it is written by a Godless Mormon, but I have found that the book contains lots of great messages for young girls. I think fathers out there should let their daughters read "Twilight" or watch the movies. (I don't think letting your sons do it is advisable, though, unless you want to end up paying huge bills for a conversion therapist ten years on). Mainly, it is because unlike Hermione Granger or Lucy Pevensie, this book is NOT populated by rabid feminazis.

-The series is a metaphor for keeping abstinent before marriage. It helps teach young girls that if they give it away before they have a ring on their finger, they WILL die (because God will strike them down to hell).

-Bella Swan, the series protagonist, is constantly falling into danger, and needs to be rescued by her boyfriend. This sets a very good example for girls, a message not given enough by today's media - women are essentially helpless, and they simply CANNOT make it through the world unless they have a man there to take care of them.

-For another thing, Bella Swan has no life or personality outside of her boyfriend. Truly, she is an example for how a Christian wife should behave! Every thought she has is of him. She shows very little interest to anything outside of him, doesn't seem to have any hobbies or career goals or friends. Exactly how a woman she behave once she has found the right man for her. And when he is not around, she does not use the opportunity to look for independence her sex is not supposed to have, but instead reclines from society and goes into depression. Meyer should be applauded for this wonderful character.

-Bella craves to die and be reborn as an immortal being. Just like every true Christian woman should live out their lives here on Earth, miserable, and waiting for the sweet release of death so they can be reborn in God's heavenly kingdom (of course Twilight isn't about going to heaven, but it's just fantasy after all).

-Bella constantly thinks to herself how wonderful and perfect her boyfriend is, while simultaneously thinking to herself how lowly, stupid, and ugly she is. She is very indecisive and weak-minded, and depends upon her boyfriend, or her werewolf friend, Jacob, to make decisions for her. AMEN!
(note: Edward, the psychic, is unable to read only Bella's mind. Personally, I believe this is a sign that Bella is the perfect woman - she doesn't think at all!)

-Edward is about 100 years older than Bella, but they still make a good couple. A good way to teach girls that they don't have to get married with someone their own age, but perhaps take their father's advice and marry a friend of his in need of a partner.

-Once Edward and Bella get married in the last book (once Bella has become a vampire), it describes the aftermath of their wedding night - the headboard is in ruins, she's covered in bruises, but she hides him so he won't feel guilty. And Bella is top of the world. How romantic! So much better than some of the trash out there, teaching our children to be sick perverts who have sex before marriage!

-Edward is the perfect gentleman, teaching our girls the kind of men they should go after. He is very kind, and protective of her. He follows her around a lot, and often sneaks into her bedroom at night to watch her sleep. He also manages to suppress his constant desire to kill her (most of the time).

-Bella models to young women how they should act around their men - she has to tiptoe around Edward, and Jacob, because at any moment they can turn into bloodthirsty monsters and shred her to pieces. For this reason she must be very nice to them to make sure she doesn't set their tempers off.
