Thursday’s specials:

DEFENDING LEWIS
Hooray for GetReligion, as they expose the bloodthirsty journalists trying to get their knives into C.S. Lewis. I’m confident that the “deeper magic” of Lewis’s stories will rise up and conquer character assassinations.

DEFENDING POTTER
You’ve seen my review at Looking Closer’s movie page. Now here’s Chattaways’ review. Sounds like we agree on most things. We’ll continue to defend the boy against those Christian film critics who continue to condemn the series by saying it “glorifies witchcraft” instead of understanding the tradition of magic in literature as a versatile device representing mystery, talent, technology, etc. (Apparently Focus on the Family still insists that good parents will steer their children clear of Potter.)

DEFENDING PROPER PUNCTUATION
Hooray for the Apostrophe-Abuse blog, the most delightful site I’ve stumbled upon this week!

OFFENDING MANY
Hooray for John Malkovich and Johnny Depp, two actors I dearly love! But it’s FAR too early to issue a “hooray” for their new movie The Libertine. Hey, kids who like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, you’d better ask your parents before you go see Depp’s newest film!

DEFENDING CATHOLICISM
For those who read my previous post on Mars Hill and erroneous objections to Catholicism, please check the updated version of the post. Steven Greydanus has stepped in to clarify some things.
