The Stephenie Meyer Controversy

Has anybody been tracking the discussion over at YALSA-BK listserv, where librarians and authors alike are weighing in on this negative review of Stephenie Meyer's TWILIGHT, and the argument that Meyer's faith (Mormonism) influenced the creation of her "submissive" female protagonist?

I've not read the books yet, but the proposition that an author's religious worldview MUST somehow shape his or her fiction is provocative. Are we talking about the faith practiced in our family of origin during our formative years? Or the convictions that define us now?
