One only has to look at the controversy over The Dark Materials or The Da Vinci Code to see that books or movies deemed anti-christian can face a certain amount of backlash. At one point I recall some Christian leaders calling for the banning of Harry Potter because it had elements of witchcraft and the occult. Funny how in the end he became a Christlike figure and the author admitted that she had a Christian theme in her books.
One thing I can't stand is censorship because of political or religious views. If someone really believes they are in the right, then their beliefs should stand up to a story or film that might offer contrary views.

Wow, never heard about that.

Well it sounds really interesting, FZ. I like the idea of having creative control over the cover design and how it only publishes as many copies as it sells. Can you sell it on a site like Amazon? If you could that would generate a lot of sales.
