The Golden Compass

The film has already been attacked by some religious groups who claim that it intends to “kill God in the minds of children.”

Humanism at the movies
The Golden Compass, the film adaptation of the first book of BHA distinguished supporter Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, was released on 5th December. It follows the adventures of Lyra, a young girl from an alternate world populated by witches, ‘Gyptians and armoured bears, and ruled by a sinister cabal, the Magisterium (a theocratic government in the books, though this is played down in the movie).
