I love the stories and story of CS Lewis. Sadly, due to his personal beliefs, he will be subject to thread locking in a place like this with diverse population.

We should probably leave all the rhetoric behind.

I don’t understand. If we are as diverse as you say, why would the thread be locked? Isn’t freedom of expression the very point of diversity? That being said, I posted it because he’s a pipe smoker whose favorite blend was 3 Nuns. Also, my views aren’t the same as Einstein, but I welcome the opportunity to learn more about my fellow pipe smoker.

It's because diversity often comes with refusal to understand other's beliefs. That's, sadly, the way things are now. We have lots of voices but many cannot stand the sound of each other. Society right now is a bad marriage made for the world stage.

EDIT: In the words of Hagrid, "I shouldn't have said that."

I assume it has something to do with province of the film. It to my eye looks like one of those movies that tries to make a point not tell a story.

OP: Looks to be a great film. If it isn't everyone's cup of tea, that is fine, too. I have always been a great fan of C.S. Lewis. The Screwtape letters are terrific.

Thus far everyone has been respectful of their opinions, that is really all we can hope for. It's when someone is feeling their oats and pushes an agenda that we get the stick.

It may be somewhat helpful to imagine, when posting, that the next person down is going to be posting the exact opposite idea to yours in the same TONE you are using. If you think that next post is going to be offensive, chances are yours is, too. This is what I try to do when I am feeling MY oats. I have limited success. ha ha.

He and Tolkien were famous friends until they’d had a falling out. Two historical pipe smokers that happen to be Christian gentlemen. I find Christianity as a topic of study fascinating. ☕️

I will check this out probably. I read quite a lot of his theology books, but in the end I prefer the theology/philosophy of his Narnia series over any of the other books I read.

It took me a few years to get my head around the strict conversation boundaries on this forum, but once I did click to it, I was very grateful to have a place where I can come and argue the merits of a tapered pipe cleaner while the world crumbles.
