While reporters want to compare the controversy to the few who had objections to Harry Potter (AP)
Mohler explains in detail why it is not. He wrote “Philip Pullman has an agenda -- an agenda about as subtle as an army tank. His agenda is nothing less than to expose what he believes is the tyranny of the Christian faith and the Christian church. His hatred of the biblical storyline is clear. He is an atheist whose most important literary project is intended to offer a moral narrative that will reverse the biblical account of the fall and provide a liberating mythology for a new secular age.” (AlbertMohler.com)
Powerball says: If you feel inclined to grab a torch and pitchfork have fun. I however don't fret over Harry Potter, Bratz Dolls or the latest Hollywood attack on Christianity. God was already killed and he came back 3 days later. Do we really think Pullman is stronger?
I understand he can have a negative influence on children but so can everything else in the world. How can we tell our children that some fantasy movie is dangerous. Yet churches debate homosexual clergy, abortion is legal, we fund pet projects with money from gambling addicts and prescribe a magic pill for anything that bothers us. I go back to what I have always said. This is a MOVIE. It's nothing more than entertainment. You don't have to watch it, but I do suggest that everyone who speaks out against it use their voice to address the real issues in the world and not just those found in a fantasy story.
