The Vatican has officially declared The Golden Compass “Godless.”
That kind of makes me chuckle a little bit.
First of all, it astounds me that the Church is STILL banning books and movies. What is this, the middle ages?
Secondly, doesn’t this attitude from the Vatican kind of prove Pullman’s point? Hilarious, if you ask me.
I’ve said this a million times, but if you haven’t read the books, you should. they are absolutely fantastic. Read them as a Fantasy, because that is what they are. You may see the anti-god part and you may not. Regardless, they are great books.
We saw the movie on Sunday and it was good. Not as good as the book, but I wasn’t disappointed.
