Deceiving Childrens Movie Premiering Dec 7th There will be a new children's movie The Golden Compass premiering December 7th, starring Nicole Kidman, and is being highly promoted. Many well intended parents/grandparents will think this is a great movie to take the kids to see, even my wife and son wanted to see it. The movie has been described as "atheism for kids" and is based on the first book of a trilogy entitled "His Dark Materials" written by Phillip Pullman. Pullman 's main objective is to bash Christianity and promote atheism. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he said in a 2003 interview, "my books are about killing God." He has even stated that he wants "to kill God in the minds of children". I always verify my info with Snopes.com first; here are a bunch of links to verify and to read more info: http://snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp http://www.citizenlink.org/content/A000005672.cfm http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1573421/story.jhtml They have a right to produce this movie and I'm not saying not to go see it, just be aware that this isn't as innocent as they are advertising! Heck, MTV is giving a warning!

I understand where you're coming from with this. Allthough I've never been one to judge other people's personal religious beliefs, I agree with you 100%. The trailer for this film has aired several times in our area and considering I live in what is referred to as The Bible Belt, I doubt it will run in local theaters without protest.

I seldom go to movies anymore--maybe one a year. I think I'll pass on this one.

I would have felt terrible if I took my grandkids to see this thinking it was a good morale movie and it wasn't.

In my opinion Doesn't sound like a good movie for anybody I think with all the different beliefs religions in this world All of them should worship in there own way And not think theres is better And push theres on you That makes me very uncomfortable To each his own and leave it that Theres room for everybody Ps Religion and Politics AArgh! They both go so many ways Ok Im done Lol

Sounds like the controversy over Harry Potter all over again.
