attempted to stop the making of a gospel, or whether he was referring to some conspiracy theory about Hollywood being run by Jews is immaterial. Part of the enormous cultural significance of The Passion of the Christ was its ability to become yet another symbol at the heart of the Culture War. Embracing the film symbolized the embrace of the Christian Right’s conception of America, an America in which a deeply conservative theology could find confirmation and validation in significant elements of popular culture.

The discursive narrative of Festivals performances lies not only in the mutual exclusiveness of the categories of Moors and Christians, but also in an ‘essential Christian right to the land, while explaining away the presence of the Moors as something temporary and inconsequential’ (Flesler and Pérez Melgosa, 2003: 154). Flesler and Pérez Melgosa use the terms ‘guest’ and ‘host’ in order to deconstruct the social roles of both categories. While during the Festivals both

comments highlight the essentially dramatic way in which Pullman approaches storytelling. On stage, it was the complex layering of visual narrative that is suggested by his response to images in comics that was the strongest element. Reviewers’ responses to the productions varied. Some deplored what they saw as Pullman’s anti-Christian message, while others applauded his militant humanism. This was especially the case when the shows were revived in December 2004, following the announcement that the proposed film version of His Dark Materials would ‘pander to the Christian

Rarely patronising or patriarchal, Simpson struck the right balance between the party’s Christian right and its liberal soft centre-left. As Brett had said of him: he was ‘somewhere in the middle’ as far as the party spectrum was concerned. 60 Simpson often looked to the future in his speeches and for a reversal in the province’s unfortunate economic fortunes.
