It's a shoot-out in the OK Corral: HERE’s a Christian Wingnut blasting the non-Christian Harry Potter series, and HERE’s a non-Christian children's author blasting the Christian Chronicles of Narnia.
Snippet from the Wingnut:
"Potter" is a Pagan witch, "the female goddess of Babylon who is considered the potter who created the human being from clay. God, unable to give birth, is essentially believed to have tried to mimic the Potter. The feminine oriented cult of witchcraft sees the woman and her process of birth as fundamental in the new life, the transformation, the alchemy, the changing of the inner man to higher consciousness which is what Harry Potter is all about.... This is an upside down reversal of what a Christian believes [Well, yeah...].Snippet from the anti-Narnia guy:
Pullman has described The Chronicles not just as "propaganda in the cause of the religion [Lewis] believed in," but also as guilty of advancing views such as, "Death is better than life; boys are better than girls; light-colored people are better than dark-colored people; and so on." And those are just Pullman's G-rated charges. He also has blasted The Chronicles in public forums as "one of the most ugly and poisonous things I've ever read," "propaganda in the service of a life-hating ideology," "blatantly racist," "monumentally disparaging of girls and women," and marked by a "sadomasochistic relish for violence."Have any of you read both Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia ? What's your take on these two world-renowned children's book series? In your opinion, is one intrinsically healthier than the other?
