-Dawning Where Idiot’s Fear to Tread

by Dr. D ~ December 9th, 2010

Aslan

                                         (Aslan via Wikipedia)

Right on the eve of the release of the newest Narnia feature-The Voyage of the Dawn Treader comes a couple of idiotic PC quotes that have C.S.Lewis fans shaking their heads in disgust.

First of all came the quote from Actor Liam Neeson who is the voice of Aslan in the series.

In describing his character he  told London’s Daily Mail:

"Aslan symbolizes a Christ-like figure, but he also symbolizes for me Mohammed, Buddha, and all the great prophets and spiritual leaders over the centuries. That’s who Aslan stands for as well as a mentor figure for kids — that’s what he means for me."

Then the most recent quote from Mark Johnson, producer of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, questions whether the Narnia books are even Christian:

"Resurrection exists in so many different religions in one form or another, so it’s hardly exclusively Christian. We don’t want to favor one group over another … whether these books are Christian, I don’t know."

Response: What are these idiots thinking? These quotes are either shockingly ignorant or totally PC disingenuous. If the producer is talking this way it doesn’t leave one with a whole lot of confidence that the latest work will be faithful to the book.

Aslan represents the Biblical "The Lion of Judah". Aslan cannot be Mohammed or Buddha- he represents Jesus Christ alone. The resurrection of Aslan portrayed in the book is ‘exclusively Christian’. The themes and symbols in the Narnia book series are meant to be Christian.

How do we know? Because the author of the books-C.S. Lewis said so. Period. End of discussion. Point, set, match!            *Top of the Blog
