I wanted to pass along this information that I received this evening from a friend. This story has been checked out with Snopes and it is completely true. Please feel free to check out the original articles going around about this movie. http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp.
Please make yourselves aware of the content of the movie and especially the content of the book series the movie is based on before you or your kids decide to watch it. Received the followed post from another loop. This is important since the marketing for this movie has already started. It looks a lot like "Narnia" but is so far from it. BEWARE! There will be a new Children's movie out in December called THE GOLDEN COMPASS. It is written by Phillip Pullman, a proud atheist who belongs to secular humanist societies. He hates C. S. Lewis's Chronicle¢s of Narnia and has written a trilogy to show the other side. The movie has been dumbed down to fool kids and their parents in the hope that they will buy his trilogy where in the end the children kill God and everyone can do as they please. Nicole Kidman stars in the movie so it will probably be advertised a lot. This is just a friendly warning that you sure won't hear on the regular TV. Pullman , a prominent British atheist, has acknowledged that this is in fact his goal. He has claimed that "it is my goal to go after Christianity, I want God to be dead in my works. I want to undermine Christianity."
