When newspapers were talking about a hardcore push by Christians to go see Chronicles of Narnia, as well as boycotts by atheists, I thought it was all a little bit silly… Sure, CS Lewis was a Christian, but he always maintained that Narnia was just a fantasy tale. Well, I finally had a chance to actually see the movie yesterday, and I kind of have to agree with the “this is a Christian movie” theory as I watched it echo Biblical stories and even quote scripture on a regular basis… Maybe I know the Bible better than I should, but I think a movie is being a little obvious about its real intentions when I can say, “hey, that's Matthew 5 they're quoting”, point out which Narnia characters are which Biblical characters, and so on?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
