I don't know, but I know there was a huge outcry against Astrid Lindgren's The Brothers Lionheart (possibly my most beloved book in the whole world :heart: ), though I'm not sure it was so much a Xtian thing, as it was a "kiddies should only read about fairy princesses and rabbits" kinda deal.
Then again, there was this idiot, who compared another of her books, Ronia, the Robber's Daughter, to Xtianity, and the 12 robbers in the book - to the apostles. Of course, that critic may have been onto something, even without realising it :consider:

I guess not, but if you've been brainwashed into it, you at least have an excuse. At least I wasn't in it 'cause I wanted to believe I was special and that I mattered to the universe, but mostly because I was labouring under the misapprehension that Xtianity was all about compassion and loving your brother. I also think something in my brain just went kablooey for a while.
I'm pretty sure my brain went kablooey as well. Of course, hormones played a large role in my conversion. There were a lot of cute girls at my church and I was 16!
