Shelter your children from ideas

Of course the Jesus freaks are up in arms about the upcoming movie The Golden Compass because it was written by…gasp…an atheist! The Head Retard of the Catholic League is concerned:

Our concern is this, unsuspecting Christian parents may want to take their kid to the movie, it opens up December 7th and say, this wasn’t troubling, then we’ll buy the books. So the movie is the bait for the books which are profoundly anti-Catholic and at the same time selling atheism.

First of all, this series of books is really, really entertaining and IT’S FICTION! It’s made-up stories about a made-up world. It is no more “selling atheism” than Narnia is selling Christianity. Bill Donohue has proven once again that he is an intolerant bully with his head up his ass.

Second of all, even if this book was “selling atheism”, you and your kids can still enjoy it and make up your own minds. Can’t you? Are you capable of making up your own mind? Are yours kids capable of being exposed to different ideas? Or do you need to shelter them in a little dome of ignorance?

This movie looks like it is going to be awesome.

  1. We went to this. I thought it was pretty good! Nowhere near as deep and broad as the book but visually amazing with good casting, good acting and just an unfortunately brief amount of time to try to tell the story.

  2. I’m totally going to take my kid to the movie. My only concern? I loved the books soooooooo much I’m afraid the movie(s) will be a disappointment.

    *fingers crossed*
