The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ

Well, I appear to have monumentally failed on the new year's resolution to blog more. There are quite a few blog posts swimming around in my head that haven't yet made it onto the computer, but hopefully I will have more time soon (ha ha ha). In the meantime (thanks to the Ship of Fools - @shipoffoolscom on Twitter) I stumbled across this video of Philip Pullman talking about free speech in the context of his latest book - 'The good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ'.

I doubt I shall agree with what Mr Pullman has to say in his new book (though I shouldn't judge too hastily and I hope I'll get chance to read it), but on this issue I think he hits the nail right on the head.
