The Golden Compass

Surprised to see this from the email:

-----------------------------------------------------


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 staring 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.

Also, pass this information along to everyone you know.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 influence with kids. So
many things today are darkness concealed in what appears to be
innocent.

Don't let kids see "The Golden Compass"
