The Golden Compass — an Anti-religious Movie?

by Steve Ray on November 8, 2007

I have received several e-mails warning me not to see the new fantasy movie entitled The Golden Compass — or allow my kids to see it. I have been told that it is done with an extreme bias against religion, especially Catholicism and the Christian faith.

Is this true? Snopes says YES and explains.

Also, read What Every Parent Should Know About "The Golden Compass" an Interview With Pete Vere and Sandra Miesel on Zenit here. Steve Wood also has good material for parents about his movie here.

Should we spend our money to support such movies? Should we let our kids see this kind of stuff without at least some critical evalutions and discussions? That is up to you, but at least we should be informed.
