FOXNews is reporting that the president of the Catholic League, Bill Donohue, is complaining about the new movie The Golden Compass because–are you sitting down?–it’s not atheistic enough.
“They’re intentionally watering down the most offensive element,” Donohue said. “I’m not really concerned about the movie, [which] looks fairly innocuous. The movie is made for the books. … It’s a deceitful, stealth campaign. Pullman is hoping his books will fly off the shelves at Christmastime.”
Strangely, I’m having trouble finding any reference to the Catholic League complaining about the stealth Christianity in the kid’s film The Chronicles of Narnia, or its implied message that the way to deal with unbelievers is to kill them. With swords.
