You don’t need to read His Dark Materials. This pretty much covers it. And then some.
Pullman: Religion is Evil.
Pullman: Because priests kill babies.
Readers: No they don’t. You just made that up in the book.
Pullman: Shut up! Look at Iorek Byrnison!
Readers: Hey, he is cool. (Iorek does cool stuff for one book and then spends the next two books being completely boring, chasing after Lyra.)
Pullman: God, religion, and any person of faith are Evil.
Pullman: Sheesh, are you deaf? They kill babies!
Readers: Hang on, the leader of the fight against God also killed a baby. Why isn’t he evil?
Pullman: No he didn’t.
Readers: Yes he did, it’s right here in the first book.
Pullman: Shut up! Look at Will and Lyra having sex!
Readers: Urg. Isn’t Lyra ten?
Pullman: She’s twelve now.
Readers: Well, that makes it all better, then.
Scratch a Christ hater, find a pedo. Every. Single. Time.
