It did fine for us. I have a simple rule for all the film banning- book burning crowd.... be they radical Islam or Christian or Hindu or Sufi: a pox on all their houses. No wonder we revel when the hypocrites implode.

I saw THE GOLDEN COMPASS yesterday and took a junior at a Christian college with me. Her major is Bible studies.

After the movie she said that if she had not read and heard all the pre-release anti-Christian publicity about this movie she would not have noticed anything in it that would be considered anti-Christian. But, because she had read all that, she looked for it and could see some symbolism in the movie that could reference the Church.

The movie basically is about good and evil--right from wrong--and what is wrong with that? It is not professing evil; to the contrary, the whole movie is about the quest for good over bad and the final acquisition of it. Maybe I'm too shallow for this type of movie, but that is what I got out of it.

After seeing the movie, I called a clergyman in my town and offered to take him to see the movie. I told him my take of the movie's controversy. He said he has not mentioned the movie or books to his parishioners as I had heard he had. After listening to me, he said he would try to take his family to see it and would get back to me.

Let's get back to good wholesome flicks like Saw 4.
