There appears to be a rather big dummy-spit going on in the US about Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. Here are some claims and comments:
In the last book, a boy and girl are depicted representing Adam and Eve and they kill God.
I couldn't believe that in a children's book part of the story is about castration and female circumcision.
IF you're goal is to raise your child in a way that would cause them to grow and know God as He is described in the Bible, you should shield them from the writings.
I want more than anything else I want for my children, even their own happiness in this life, for them to believe in God, Who is their salvation.
i dont know much about pullman or his writings but the Word of God is the truth and the Bible says that Lieing is a sin.*By pullman writing this book he is lieing and he knows not the truth and the truth is not in him But God is truth and His word never fails and God has the final say. So Mr Pullman God wins you lose.
If a book is written by an atheist, the spirit of everything in that book is one of atheism.
Why risk filling your childs head with thoughts that you may have been able to prevent?
Why indeed? I'm pretty sure this stuff don't need any extra commentary. Just imagine me jumping up and down being REALLY angry. And then imagine some Stupid People complaining about books they CLEARLY HAVEN'T READ.
