The Golden Compass

So I've heard a lot about this new movie coming out called The Golden Compass. When I first saw the previews for it at the movies I wanted to see it... until I got an e-mail saying that the movie is based on a book. OK, so it doesn't sound like a big deal. The only thing is, the books (yeah, there's three of em) were written by an atheist author who basically shows the other side to The Chronicles of Narnia- where the children kill God so that they may do as they please.

You read it right. Kill God.

I was obviously disappointed when I read this. I mean, at first I thought it was another chain letter, but when I saw the article for myself, my jaw dropped.

So many children are going to see that movie... I wonder if they know the true meaning behind it?

I was particularly disappointed to know that Nicole Kidman is the star of the movie, since she's known to be a devout Catholic. I love her in everything she does... she's beautiful, she has impeccable fashion sense and she's married to the hottest man on the PLANET! (and i will be seeing him in concert this saturday!! yayyyy!!! ok... i digress...) I was bummed to see that she took part in this, and that they are marketing this as such a great movie. :(

I know its sucks. However, there have been other articles noting that the movie steers clear of any religious aspects. For me its sad about the author and his point of views. The only way to know about the movie unfortunately is to go see it. Hopefully one day the author will come to know christ.
