Christian groups are boycotting and staging a campaign against the Nicole Kidman movie "The Golden Compass" due to the book's anti-God themes. The film is based on a trilogoy of books by Philip Pullman. Philip is a known atheist. New Line has watered down the film version and removed all the offensive anti-religion themes which has angered Atheists. Damn, they can't win.
Christian and Catholic groups are more concerned with the books and feel that with the movie will send children running to read the rest of the books. In the final book of the trilogy, a character named God is killed. They find out that God isn't a God after all and is a phoney. This is a children's book?!
The watered down version comes out this Christmas. Atheists are still happy about the film, because it will give his books the attention they never got in the States.
The head of the Freedom From Religion Foundation said, "What this book is about is casting off Church authority. I think it's very, very positive. There should be something for freethinking children. It's a very good yarn."
The FoxNews article goes on and on and on. Basically, I blame Nicole Kidman and her botoxed face. This movie has already been dubbed a flop anyway, so Christians shouldn't worry.
I didn't want to see this piece of garbage before, but now I totally do. This is what I say. Let children believe whatever they want and everything will be ok. if they want to believe there's a God, fine. If they want to believe there isn't, fine.
I think what's more ungodly is that movie tickets are $11 around my parts. Dark-sided!
