Bill Donohue of the Catholic League had an engaging discussion with Raymond Arroyo on The World Over last night. He mentioned the upcoming film, The Golden Compass which will be released on December 7.
"New Line Cinema and Scholastic Entertainment have paired to produce ‘The Golden Compass,’ a children’s fantasy that is based on the first book of a trilogy by militant English atheist Philip Pullman. The trilogy, His Dark Materials, was written to promote atheism and denigrate Christianity, especially Roman Catholicism. The target audience is children and adolescents. Each book becomes progressively more aggressive in its denigration of Christianity and promotion of atheism: The Subtle Knife is more provocative than The Golden Compass and The Amber Spyglass is the most in-your-face assault on Christian sensibilities of the three volumes."

Donohue said that the film itself is innocuous enough, however, but it is deliberately being shown before Christmas to encourage parents to purchase the books for children as gifts. The books are toxic to the faith and morality of children, and discuss the 'humanity' of killing God, who is portrayed as a weak old man.
In response to this attempt to destroy our children's faith, The Catholic League has prepared a booklet for only $5, entitled, "The Golden Compass Agenda Unmasked", where the author's own words clearly display his evil intent. Parents, please order this book, and pass it on, so other parents can protect their children from Pullman's poison.
