The Golden Compass.

I am sure many of you have heard about this book by Philip Pullman. I haven't read them or seen the movie but I have heard enough to know that it isn't something I want my children to see.

We got a note from one of our children's teachers telling us that they were going to be watching some movie's over the next few weeks and one of the movies on the list was the Golden Compass. I felt sick when I read the note. We know that the movie is anti Christian and presents the church in a bad light. Why the heck would anyone want to show this movie to a group of children?

We have given permission for our child to watch all the movies except The Golden Compass and written a letter explaining what is wrong with the movie to the teacher and why we won't let our child watch it.

I find it a bit frightening that secularism is so ingrained into our society that someone doesn't think it is wrong to show a movie like this in a Catholic School.


If anyone is interested in reading a bit more about the movie and why it shouldn't be promoted and watched by young children Catholic Answer's has a great article on it.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
