Protests Over The Golden Compass

Protests Over The Golden Compass

Catholics and other religious groups have organized boycotts of The Golden Compass, a film based on a children's book by an avowed atheist. What are their complaints?

  • Directly competing with Margot at the Wedding, which they love

  • Compasses inherently promote travel and broadened horizons

  • The most sympathetic character is not killed in a prolonged and bloody torture sequence

  • Though God is not referenced directly, subtitles pop up on screen to remind viewers when things symbolize God and religion

  • Daniel Craig would be better served doing the Lord's work in the next Bond installment

  • Breaks unspoken rule that talking CGI animals must be allegorical to Catholicism

  • Would have enjoyed some broader anti-Semitic themes


  • LULZ

    Yeah, my "the onion" tags are Dec, Nov, Sep, Sep, Jan, of this year, and once in Sep of 05. Not exactly consistent. Although it looks like recently they've been better.
