And if you think about it, to simultaneously like CS Lewis, Pullman, and Sartre (as I do) you have to believe that ideas are wonderful things whether or not you agree with them.

The concern about your statements is that they paint it as if *every* Christian element is completely and totally opposed to anyone partaking in Pullman's stuff and considers it a (to use a Catholic term) Mortal Sin. It jst isn't true.
You know which term I use for those who think like that -> fanatics.

@Naked Ninja: From what I heard so far is that the book indeed is a lot better. I think I'll waite till it comes out on DVD and judge for myself. Don't know weather the local library has these books, but I'll try to find them.

so very, very tired (Star Trek XI quote according to the Simpsons)
