The Elecktronick Tyger Roares

  And, Now in the Interest of Equal Time for All Nutbars...
...we present a "Christian" diatribe "proving" that C.S.Lewis is a Tool of the Devil, and the Narnia books are Satanic Snares created to Lure Our Children to Damnation, to counterbalance the previous post from a British atheist (who said much the same thing, but had a harder time making her case, since she didn't have the Devil handyto blame it all on).

They begin:
John F. Kennedy, C.S. Lewis, and Aldous Huxley all died on the same day.
They all went to the same place.
Kennedy went to hell because he trusted in the Roman Whore.
Huxley went to hell because he trusted in himself alone and his hybrid Eastern mystic notions.
And, Lewis went to hell because he invented a new god, and he ended his life a Taoist.
We will prove it here.
Neet, Huh?

The whole thing -- ten or twelve excruciatingly ugly and ludicrous files, may be found here.

The gist of the authors' method of dissertation consists of picking passages out of Lewis's writings or those of others about Lewis, and then appending Scripture that vaguely sounds like it might have something to do with what they previously quoted if you twist it hard enough, and look at it slantendicular, and then going "There? See? That proves it!" and going on to their next "point".

They do include a good picture of the Bird and Baby (Eagle & Child), the Inklings' Oxford "local", though...

Speaking of which, they reprint the following LETTER FROM A READER -- Sept. 16, 2000
Dear Steve,

I was browsing thru your site after my previous e-mail and came across this in your section on C.S. Lewis: One of Lewis' favorite pubs, "The Eagle and Child," familiarly known as "The Bird and Baby." This inn-sign is actually a representation of the pagan god Zeus/Jupiter in the form of an eagle carrying off a boy called Ganymede to Olympus to serve as a sexual plaything. I don't know whether that was why Lewis was attracted to it, but it can hardly be coincidental that such a foul and disgusting image should be associated with a pub frequented by such a person as Lewis.

Incidentally, the authors of this site reject salvation by works (the idea that you have to do something good yourself other then just kiss God's ass enough to be saved), which was to some extent Lewis's belief, they being of the type that teach that if you just keep telling Him how much you love him and wanna be his punk forever and ever over and over long enough, he might deign to reach down and "save" you.

If he doesn't, tough luck, bud -- you just weren't a Good Enough Person. Fry in Hell.

They also get all up in arms over Lewis's contention that a person, onced "saved" could become "not-saved", no matter what he might do in later life; that, just as it is impossible for us to be "saved" by works, just so is it impossible for the "saved" to be damned by works.

As near as i can tell, this means that once you're saved you can go on a cross-country pillage of rapine and murder*, and when the cops finally gun you down, straight up to Heaven you will go.


At least glance through it to see what kind of people have our beloved President's ear.


*Or, say if you were to strap on a bomb and blow yourself up in a crowded public place, not only would you go to Heaven but you'd get...


Sorry --that's the Bad Guy Religious Funnymentalists.
