A new film which depicts Moses leading the Israelites to the promised land on the back of a dragon has failed to arouse the anger of Christians, who are just glad to see a film featuring God.
"We had to make a few creative decisions", explained director Michael Bay. "The Old Testament is rather short on detail regarding, for example, whether the Hebrew prophet rode a dragon or not, so we've simply filled in the blanks with what we think is the most likely possibility. Of course, when you have a dragon involved you're likely to need some kind of ring quest subplot, if only to give the dwarves something to do."
However, since the film's opening there has been a distinct lack of outrage from Christians over alterations to the original text. "I don't see it's any different from Narnia", one Christian viewer told us, "and Narnia's in The Bible isn't it? To be perfectly honest, I haven't read it for a while."
Another added: "If featuring dragons, dwarves and a wizarding school brings people closer to God, then it's all fair game. After all, wasn't Jesus in his own way attempting to save Middle Earth from orcs under the influence of an evil wizard?"
"Sure it's a little far-fetched, but at least it's not as ludicrous as that story about the happy place in the sky where people go if... What do you mean that was The Bible? Really? Well, you learn something new every day..."
