The Golden Compass Flap

The new movie "The Golden Compass" is currently playing in four Santa Cruz area theaters. Some fundamental Christians as well as the Catholic League is appealing to all good Christains to boycott the film. What this does, of course, is that it creates enough additional publicity that more tickets are sold than might otherwise have been the case.

Anyway, I saw the film last week, and can't quite see what all the flap is about. Check it out for yourself.

Here's a link to an interesting article abou the issue: http://atheism.about.com/b/2007/12/11/comment-of-the-week-harry-potter-vs-golden-compass.htm

Alleluia, brudda!! Jewish and Christian tradition have long been the unique mountain where it all comes down to the fuzzy MissKreant. Precisely why OUR blogs are simply the best at solving the universal conflict. If you say there isn't a God, I say we shall ALL return to Jesus when you croak (your soul is indelible) and because I was an actual NDE, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven's gonna be like for you/me if you get in the boat, brudda: meet this ex-mortal Upstairs for the most-extra-groovy, pleasure-beyond-measure, Ultra-Yummy-Reality-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, kick-ass, party-hardy, 1011011011...-yummy-flavors you DO NOT wanna miss the smmmokin’-hot-deal. YES! For God, anything and everything and more! is possible!! Cya soon
