This page is a mess. Half or more the examples are either "Magic isn't Bad, but it's not a shining beacon of goodness either!" or "Magic is good, but fundamentalist Christians don't think so!" or something similar.

This trope needs cleaning up, but if that's done, it'll leave the page barren and with few examples. Thoughts?

We also need to clean out all the "Not so much Magic is Evil as Magic is a very destructive force that should be used carefully." That's not what this trope is about. This trope is about magic being a corrupting, often times unnatural force that its world would be better off without.

To be fair, the first thing that came to mind was a setting wherein people believed this was the case, but with magic itself being more or less "neutral" and capable of being used for good or bad. If this trope is supposed to be equating magic as a whole with, say, a Ring of Power or the One Ring, then we really need to clean up the page.
