Caution

Rod and I have seen the previews for the movie, The Golden Compass, numerous times. It looks very appealing...especially after seeing Narnia and the similar effects they seem to use. However, this is the second e-mail I've received on this movie so it's worth the caution:

I thought you would like to know some info about The Golden Compass....
The Golden Compass, a new movie targeted at children, will be released Dec. 7. This movie is based on a first book of a trilogy by atheist Philip Pullman. In the final book a boy and girl kill God so they can do as they please. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he said in a 2003 interview that "My books are about killing God."The movie is a watered down version of the first book and is designed to be very attractive in the hope unsuspecting parents will take their children to see the movie and that the children will want the books for Christmas.The movie has a well known cast, including Niclole Kidman, Kevin Bacon, and Sam Elliott. It will probably be advertised extensively, so it is crucial that we get word out to warn parents (grandparents) to avoid this movie. You can research this for yourself. Start with this article on Snopes.com, then go to Google. http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp

I was also able to find this http://www.family.org/entertainment/A000001212.cfm on Focus on the Family's website.

Just a little FYI in case you haven't received this caution.
