Movie Warning

A few weeks ago, I saw a trailer for the movie The Golden Compass, based on a children's book with the same name. It looked interesting and I thought it was odd that I had never heard of the book.

Someone sent me the link to the Snopes article about the movie, and I was very disturbed at what I saw. Snopes is the website devoted to confirming or debunking urban legends or chain emails and, unfortunately, this internet rumor is all too true. The book is part of a series written by a British atheist with the affirmed intention of convincing children that the church is a cruel institution that must be destroyed. In fact, in the 3rd book, the children kill god.

Not exactly fuzzy bedtime reading.
