Because Aslan IS a universe-hopping shape-shifting Jesus, that’s how.
It looks like Harry has a goatee in panel 4. I think that’s awesome.
Underneath Aslan is Jesus and underneath that is Batman.
Harry’s just an underdeveloped emo punk.
Actually, both series have religious undertones, with the two characters shown here having Jesus underneath, though not necessarily Batman. Furthermore, they both have been criticised of teaching the occult and/or paganism, though the time difference filters our perspectives somewhat. Also, Rowling was rather more progressive, in that she portrayed both sexes as equals in a sense. Lewis, being against women and sexuality and showing this quite clearly in his books, found a lot of support from the church (or at least parts of it).
In the end it’s not so much a matter of who was more awesome, which is extremely debatable and ultimately moot; it is a matter of whose thoughts were more in line with the more literal-minded clergy and laity, which some might say is a rather closed-minded and inelegant standard.
In that regard, Lewis’ views were… fairly normal for his time. And yes, I agree, the church back then was just as bad with those issues.
Actually, there are a number of Christians who are anti-Narnia… I think because of the talking animals.
But there were at least two talking animals in the Bible!
Yes, and one of them was the serpent that tempted Eve to eat the apple in Eden. There’s your justification against talking animals.
Simba… you are an abomination and the one true king.
we can also infer that because of Eves reaction (or lack of) to a TALKING snake that it is logical to assume that the other animals could talk as well.
For those wondering, the second animal was some dudes donkey. There was an angel in front of them while he was riding the ass (yeah yeah I made a joke) and the donkey wouldn’t move because the donkey could see the angel. He started beating the donkey and they donkey was all “Dude! stop hitting me! there’s a mother farming angel right there!”
Wow. Seriously, I’m a Christian, and I think that people who condemn this kind of stuff is stupid. Sure, if they’re SACRIFICING people or something, performing dark rituals that involve lots of bloodshed and murder, or have sex within the pages of the book, that’d be something else, but honestly… I mean, Harry didn’t even kill anyone, and I’m pretty sure Aslan has.
for the lazy people who dont read.
HARRY KILLED VOLDEMORT. waitwut?
Technically, no. Harry only attempted to disarm him. The Voldemort’s killing curse rebounded, again, so, in actuallity, Voldemort killed himself…again.
And also the one about the disarming having a rebound.
BOTH OF THESE.
The problem Christians have with Harry Potter is because the Bible says specifically to stay away from witchcraft, wizards and fortune tellers because none of them are of God. In fact when God told King Saul to get rid of them all, he did, but for some reason spared one. King Saul had a lot of problems though. He was pretty mental to say the least, lol! But anyone can be that.
I’m going to hold off on saying anymore because while I have more to say, this particular strip isn’t the place for it.
Yeah, as long as the fictional characters don’t have sex! Because that would be terrible!
… wait, how do you read this webcomic? You do realize that that, a few pages back, it was only for the grace of a blanket that we didn’t actually see Faz and Ninja Rick having the buttsex, right?
Aren’t Harry’s eyes supposed to be green…?
Also…nah. I hate talking about religious stuff on the internet. Awesome comic though.
They are only blue in the movies because the actor was allergic to the contacts.
Really? Guess I don’t pay attention to people’s eye color to really notice.
I don’t know about the Lewis books, but I know that people were trying to have the Rowling books removed from school. Back when it was going on I already knew what the response was going to be on the basis that every book that had anything to do with magic or mystisism or any other fantasy type thing in it would have to be removed if Harry Potter was. This includes all of the fables and fairy tales. Not to mention Lord of the Rings which is considered to be the book of the 20th century.
The hilarious thing is that Harry Potter was made into a Christ allegory himself in the last book. He walked to his death, even had a bit of soul searching in a version of Gethsename, died for other peoples safety and rose from the dead.
Plus of course, Rowling is a Christian herself.
I didn’t really like how the HP series ended at all, but it’s kind of ridiculous that some fundamentalists consider her to be some sort of Satanist. I mean if they actually read the books, certain things- such as Divination are pretty much slandered in the books, which pretty much line up with that religion. I mean HP isn’t really the perfect example of morals at all in many instances- since the heroes get away with a lot of stuff they shouldn’t, but nothing to specifically get most christians all that relied in comparison to your average every day non-christian.
The position Christians take is that if you are going to escape into a world of fantasy through a book you should use the Bible.
Poor Harry, being called Satan and having a millions of dumb fanfics.
Don’t be ridiculous, everybody know Harry Potter is a zionist, hollywoodist, templeristic scheme to brainwash our poor muslim children.
Who is “Mary Sue”? Lookie here: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2257878/3/That_Essay_That_Everyone_Else_Writes. I am sure there are other instances, but I knew of this one before reading this comic, and looked no further.
Three things. Rowling’s research was to good, she used actual spells for fictional ones (brother is wican and I learned a lot about it) Second, any lie or truth can be twisted to your own good or bad. (I’m Christian and go fish is a sin for me because I was an excessive gambler but drinking has never been a problem so its ok in small doses.) Third, if one person says it everyone repeats. (Harry Potter, both sides. It’s amazing or Satan spawn, I found it lacking but I get yelled at about it.)
Hate to engage in a metaphorical staring contest with you, chum, but Rowlings’ “research” for her spells didn’t consist of more than some bastardized Latin (which, unless maybe your brother’s an Alexandrian/Hermetic Wiccan, you wouldn’t really encounter in any of his materials anyhow). The Killing Curse (Avada Kedavra) is the closest analogue to an old amulet that contained the words every stage magician knows as “abra(c/h)adabra”. Also, if go fish is a sin, I’m so F’ed in the A. Nice try, though.
Yeah, as a pagan I have to say that there is no real resemblance at all to real practices. In fact Rowling tries very hard to stay away from any of the real occult.
