Christians Boycott "The Golden Compass"?
Wow, this is more than enough reason there for me to want to watch it in the theater and recommend it to everyone I know...even though I know very little about it! I remember when "The Last Temptation of Christ" came out, and some Christian groups got so damn vocal that they got it banned. That was atrocious. It's a great movie, and if it ruffles the feathers of some religious folk, who gives a rat's ass? That's the great thing about this country: if you don't like something, feel free to vent as much as you want and get others with the same mindset to boycott it, but damnit let others make their own choices. Fortuantely, it seems like they're not trying to get it banned, and frankly all they're really doing is generating more advertising for the movie.
