FYI~ The Golden Compass

Hi Everyone. I was going to post about what things I've been doing in the last 4 days that have kept me so busy that I haven't had the chance to blog. However I got an email this morning from my dear friend Kim and it lit a fire under my bum! Normally I don't get into topics like these on here but this one is seriously disturbing to me. I believe after reading all of the information given to me that I needed to help get the word out about the movie The Golden Compass starring Nicole Kidman that is coming out December 7, 2007. It is written by the author Philip Pullman, who is an athiest. The movie is a "water downed version" of his series of books that are very anti-christian and are focused towards "killing God in children's minds." I am just so appalled at the fact that they would make this a movie at all, let alone one geared toward children. I am so concsious about what my children watch on tv that they aren't allowed to even watch some Nickelodeon shows. Unsuspecting parents will be taking their children to the movies thinking that this gonna be a good kids movie and it's going to be putting athiest beliefs into their heads. It just blows my mind on so many different levels here! I for one will not be allowing my children to see this movie and I'm going try to let as many parents I can know exactly what it is that they will be walking into this Christmas season. I checked this out on Snopes.com and it is very much true. Click on that link and it will take you straight to the article. I am a firm believer that knowledge is a good weapon against these types of situations so that is why I'm writing about it here. Read the article for yourself and make your own decision but I know mine has already been made. Wishing you all the best!

I am saddend and sickened by what "Hollywood" will do to make a buck...I went to the author's website (the author of the actual book series) and I read about him and I read little snippets from the books and I was just disgusted...
