In the article, it talked about how The Golden Compass should have been boycotted, and how Chris Weitz copied the Chronicles of Narnia movies, in terms of design, etc. Anyway, that’s not what I found interesting. What I found interesting was the quote from Philip Pullman that said that his books are about killing God, and that there’s less controversy surrounding it as compared to the Harry Potter series. You know, I don’t get these Christian people/groups who are against having the Harry Potter series in school libraries because the Harry Potter series are about wizards/witches and magic, and yet they allow His Northern Materials, a series about killing God. The way that I look at it, and having read His Northern lights, the Harry Potter series is a small fish compared to His Northern Materials in the metaphorical frying pan. Because I think that a series about killing God is way more anti-Christian than a series that has very little, if any, religious connotations, whether it’s Christian, Wiccan, etc.
