The Golden Compass

I just saw the movie "The Golden Compass". I was told this was an anti- religion movie and if you were listening it surely turned out to be one.

It suggested, in the movie, that a conflict were to soon be taking place where the right to think freely was at stake. The old steadfast order was trying to maintain the status quo. In the movie it was called the Magistrate, but it was obvious that it depicted the religion of today. Especially Catholicism.

The Magistrate was trying very hard to stifle free thought. You were expected to think a certain way, the ‘right’ way, and if you varied you faced punishment, even up to the penalty of death.

I enjoyed the movie, I hope the sequel goes well, if there is one. I hope the sequel goes well in real life as well.
