Get Ready For The Fundy Cinematic Vapors

Is 'Golden Compass' 'selling atheism to kids'? -
Based on the first volume in the award-winning trilogy 'His Dark Materials' by religious skeptic Philip Pullman, the movie already has been condemned by conservative Roman Catholics and evangelicals. They say it will hook children into Pullman's books and a dark, individualistic world where all religion is evil.
Do they mean the world we currently call Earth? The last time I checked, religion didn't have such a wonderful track record.

Now I want to see this movie even more (even if Daniel Craig does keep his shirt on).
