> There will be a new children's movie out in December called "The Golden
> Compass". The movie has been described as "atheism for kids" and is based
> on the first book of a trilogy entitled "His Dark Materials" that was
> written by Phillip Pullman. Pullman is a militant atheist and secular
> humanist who despises C. S. Lewis and the "Chronicles of Narnia". His
> motivation for writing this trilogy was specifically to counteract Lewis'
> symbolisms of Christ that are portrayed in the Narnia series.
> Clearly, 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 that "my books are about killing God." He has even stated
> that he wants to "kill God in the minds of children". It has been said of
> Pullman that he is "the writer the atheists would be praying for, if
> atheists prayed."
> While "The Golden Compass" movie itself may seem mild and innocent, the
> books are a much different story. In the trilogy, a young streetwise girl
> becomes enmeshed in an epic struggle to ultimately defeat the oppressive
> forces of a senile God. Another character, an ex-nun, describes
> Christianity as "a very powerful and convincing mistake." In the final
> book, characters representing Adam and Eve eventually kill God, who at
> times is called YAHWEH. Each book in the trilogy gets progressively worse
> regarding Pullman's hatred of Jesus Christ.
> "The Golden Compass" is set to premier on December 7, during the Christmas
> season (and starring Nicole Kidman), and will probably be heavily
> advertised. Promoters hope that unsuspecting parents will take their
> children to see the movie, that they will enjoy the movie, and that the
> children will want the books for Christmas.
> Please consider a boycott of the movie and the books. Also, pass this
> information along to everyone you know (including church leaders). This
> will help to educate parents, so that they will know the agenda of the
> movie. I am sending this to those of you who have kids or friends with
> kids, grandkids or have influence with kids. So many things today are
> darkness concealed in what appears to be innocent. FYI.
> Don't let kids see "The Golden Compass"!
> For anyone with kids, grandkids other relatives or friends who this may
> concern, I have checked it out at
> and it is true. Read
> the info in the link.
