Do you think things like "Tinkerbell" go against what you teach your children as far as faith and the spirit of God goes?

I personaly don't. I know that fairies, lepracans, etc. are all Irish folk tales or folk lores. However you prefer.

But my mom made a comment about it the other day when the fairies were bringing in spring and she said, "Only God makes spring." I'm like, what the hell? It's just a kid's movie.

Anyway, what do yo think?

  • i see it as a cute cartoon and nothing wrong with inspiring kid's imaginations. if we didnt have fantasy the world would be so boring for kids and adults alike.

  • For all she knows the fairies are working for God... Besides it's a movie for children nothing more nothing less.

  • I believe in God and my faith is strong. I was raised going to church. I also loved watching all Disney movies when I was a kid (and still do hehe). I was always made aware of what is imaginary and make believe and what is not. I never confused the two.

  • I am not so weak as to have my religious beliefs undermined by a book, or music, or a character, or a horoscope...these are just fun things in life.

  • I'm going with you on this, "WTH it's a kids' movie." Yes, God makes spring, but Walt Disney makes fun movies.
