A friend warned me about this book/movie so I googled "The Golden Compass" and found hundreds of news releases on it, most of which are positive, as in, liberal-press-positive. The bad thing is that they're selling it as a marvelous children's fantasy story released just in time for the holidays when it includes tidbits about castration and female circumcision, and a man named God being killed in the end which allows people to do WHAT EVER they want. Ask yourself if this is the kind of Christmas message you want to implant in your kids' minds?
The author of the books on which the movie is based, Phillip Pullman--a devout atheist--has won various awards for his books, a trilogy called "His Dark Materials," which includes "The Golden Compass," that is intended to be the antidote for C.S. Lewis' "Narnia." Pullman has said in press interviews, "I loathe the 'Narnia' books. I hate them with a deep and bitter passion, with their view of childhood as a golden age from which sexuality and adulthood are a falling away." He has called the Narnia series "one of the most ugly and poisonous things" he's ever read.
Although many of Pullman's anti-religious themes have been eliminated from the movie the producers are releasing it just in time for Christmas hoping to help sell the books. So these are basically children's books from Hell thrown onto the big screen so people can get sucked into a theatre under false pretenses. You may want to be so kind as to let your email contacts know so they can choose for themselves. Pullman has the right to write and sell these books, and we have the right to reject them. Some parents may want to take their children to the movie as a teaching experience, but they should keep in mind that they are contributing financially to a liberal-extremist cause that thinks nothing of harming children emotionally. Moderation in all things.
Some of you may be asking, is KID schizoid in giving a thumbs down to "Compass" while cheering "Harry Potter?" Nope, because in the Harry Potter series good always wins out over evil, and it teaches friendship, loyalty, sacrifice, and kindness. The belief that good is stronger than evil is the basis of a happy, confident lifestyle. Atheists don't want to talk about it, but scientists have proven that the human brain is wired to believe in God. It's a basic human need, like air and water. To deprive children of this basic human need is inhumane.
