Comp Reading Has Eaten My Brain (and is ruining Harry Potter)

You know comp reading for your PhD exam has eaten your brain when you can't even watch the Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family without your work creeping in.

ABC Family is showing all the Harry Potter movies this weekend, and it makes great background for working. Order of the Phoenix is on, and I was watching the scene where the rules are nailed to the wall of Hogwart's. I started thinking about Martin Luther's 95 Theses. Could these scenes in the movie, as more and more rules get posted, be read as a anti-Reformation text? Particularly in light of the ritual (read Popish) laden culture of Hogwart's.

So that's my random thought for Sunday morning.
