I may be behind on this but a red flag always goes up when the latest controversial book is burned.
On author Phillip Pullman, from an email that has been widely circulated:
“He’s an atheist and his objective is to bash Christianity and promote atheism. I heard that he has made remarks that he wants to kill God in the minds of children, and that’s what his books are all about. He despises C.S. Lewis and Narnia, etc. An article written about him said “this is the most dangerous author in Britain…”
The “most dangerous author in Britain.” Those are some strong words. Kind of makes you want to read the books, doesn’t it? The most appalling thing to me is that the movie based on the first book, The Golden Compass, was apparently watered down so as not to be as religiously offensive to Christian moviegoers. We don’t want to lose profits now, do we. The director agrees:
“The whole point, to me, of ensuring that ‘The Golden Compass’ is a financial success is so that we have a solid foundation on which to deliver a faithful, more literal adaptation of the second and third books.”
Oh, so we get sucked in by a nice adventure movie with friendly polar bears, and then they try to convert us to atheism with their sequels? Beware children everywhere! And while you’re at it, don’t read Salinger (promotes suicide), Poe (gloomy, isn’t it?), Orwell (rebellion), Rowling (witchcraft, and now, gayness), Seuss (“green” eggs?), or any other of those brain washers…
