Â Â You know how people send you stuff in your email and sometimes you delete it without really thinking about it or believing it?Â Well, I always check out what Snopes has to say about it, and they've been right about things from what I can tell.Â My parents hardly send me anything that could be urban myth, so when they sent me anÂ email to avoid the upcoming movie "The Golden Compass", I was pretty surprised.Â The ads make it look so inspiring and inviting!Â Such a cute kids' movie for the upcoming holidays.Â Guess not, if Snopes is right . .Â . .
Â Â Christian parents should check this out.Â Apparently a staunch atheist wrote the trilogy of books the movie is based upon -- this film is based on book one.Â Apparently in the end of the series they kill God.Â Yes, I typed that correctly.Â The author is very against C.S. Lewis and The Chronicles of Narnia and what they stand for.Â I am so glad somebody told me.Â The author's plan is to woo parents and kids with the cute little movie and then have the kids beg Mommy and Daddy for the books.Â The kids will then read these books through, and you know how we parents don't always get to read everything the kids are reading, especially with a series of books . . . well, you get the picture.
