The Golden Compass

3rd December 2007 at 12:34:12 am 3 comments

I have noticed lately on Facebook a surge of groups professing that “The Golden Compass” is an anti-Christian film.
I have this theory that more than half of the members of these groups have no idea that the film has been a book for a long time now, and I bet that half more of those left have never read it. This band wagoning disgusts me.
Some people see the words “anti-Christian,” and they’ll believe or do anything, claiming some kind of persecution or devil worship. As for myself, I have read “The Golden Compass,” and it was certainly not anti-Christian. Anyone who believes as such is so weak in their own beliefs that they probably don’t believe in the first place.

This book/series was an absolutely beautiful testament to the one constant in this whole shit-faced world: Love. Yes, I’m going to spoil the series by telling you it’s not about some damn anti-Christian plot, but is really a fantastic and gripping love story. It is the story of two people who lose themselves to find each other. It has all the elements that make a fantastic story: action, adventure, mystery, romance, and most importantly, plot.
Anyone who believes their beliefs are being attacked by a fantasy story never had solid beliefs to begin with and should leave the rest of us way the hell alone.
I can understand if someone has read the story, and didn’t like it, but pinning your dislike on something as childish and unfounded as anti-Christian is just spineless.

“The Golden Compass” was a fantastic novel, and if I could, I would be there this Friday right when the film opens.

Personally, I believe an open mind is the key to success in this world, and the sooner people realize that, the sooner we can move on as a species. Free your mind.

If you’ve never heard of Radiohead, I suggest you go check them out. They’re amazing.

Recently, though, they’ve gone and done something even MORE amazing. Their latest album, “In Rainbows,” is available for download from their website, for free (as in beer, for those of you who keep score). – They are allowing us, the consumers, to choose how much we want to pay for the album.
