The Observer | UK News | Holy war looms over Disney's Narnia epic

To millions The Chronicles of Narnia are a childhood tale of wonder and triumph now made into a film that could inspire millions of children to read. To others, including the celebrated fantasy author Philip Pullman, they are stories of racism and thinly veiled religious propaganda that will corrupt children rather than inspiring them.

So begins an article in the Guardian Observer.

Geez, can't Pullman leave Lewis alone? I'm sick of this debate. Good grief, it cannot even really be a debate because one of the debators has been dead for more than four decades.

Amen. Lewis is safer reading for children than Harry Potter. Pullman is jealous his (so called fantasy) works don't get the same attention, and so wants to persecute what Jesus is left in the world of Children's stories before the end comes.
