An Interview with Phillip Pullman


Oh and here’s the Catholic League’s press release about why these films are so dangerous to christians:

The Catholic League wants Christians to stay away from this movie precisely because it knows that the film is bait for the books: unsuspecting parents who take their children to see the movie may be impelled to buy the three books as a Christmas present. And no parent who wants to bring their children up in the faith will want any part of these books.

Have you ever noticed that withholding books or information about other religions/non-religions is a big objective when it comes to fanatical groups like The Catholic League. If they really believed that bible is truly the way to salvation, why are they so worried about novels by JK Rowling or Philip Pullman?

As an atheist, one might think that I am against people reading religious books like the bible but I actually think the bible should be read. There is no book that has ever been published that can turn more people away from religion than the bible, provided that they read it in its entirety. There are two things that helped propel me to become an infidel and the bible was the main one. (Catholic school was the other).
