God Cut from His Dark Materials

Well. Another blow for freedom from the American Right, or at least their tentacles of influence.

And I have to say that I am even more disappointed than I already was in Philip Pullman, who claims not to be too bothered that all references to God or the Church have been removed from the film version of his fantasy trilogy. I was already pissed off with him for his injudicious remarks about both C.S Lewis (who may have deserved them) and Tolkien (who didn't) and his apparent authorly hubris. Now it seems he's quite happy simply to take the money and run, arguing that authority is authority - doesn't have to be a specific group. Humph.

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
