DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN SEE THIS MOVIE


THE GOLDEN COMPASS, a new movie targeted at children, will be released December 7, 2007. This movie is based on the 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 the movie and that the children will want thebooks for Christmas. The books are appearing in local stores in cheap paperback editions as well as in a beautiful trade paperback collection volume. The movie has a well known cast, including Nicole Kidman, KevinBacon,and Sam Elliott. It will probably be advertised extensively, so it is crucial that word gets out to warn parents to avoid this movie.

I've been sending out this same warning...I'm so upset that some of my actors are involved with this movie.

Hey,
To offer a bit of an alternate perspective on this, read my friend Darren's post on this subject:

I am ALWAYS good for a boycott - just ask Leslie! I just don't even understand why they make these sort of crazy movies - people just don't get it! I will spread the word!

Thanks for the tip..I'm afraid my niece in Co. might be one to have interest in this, so I will be doing research and sharing this with my sis in law. Thanks.

That's horrible that they're targeting kids. Everyone seems to be trying to get to our kids. Urghh!
Thanks for the warning.
