Can't we all just get along?

(via Arts and Literature Daily) Michael Nelson defends Narnia against Philip Pullman's charges of racism, sexism and other modern sins. I so dislike this debate, Pullman and Lewis are both excellent. Watching it is like watching Mommy and Daddy fight. Or rather watching drunk Daddy rail against dead Mommy.

I'm trying to figure out if Pullman's beef is with the the subject, the relation, the object (i.e. Man, faith, God) or all three. He does seem to be rather passionate about this though. Wait a inute . . .

"If passion, is in fashion,
[PULLMAN] is the best dressed man in town! Aye, that he is . . ."

I think he is just trying to sell more books. And also to be iconoclastic.
