Landover Baptist Church doesn’t want you to see The Golden Compass. And they have good reason for it:

Not only is the film full of cute, enticing, furry animals with mouths like horny sailors on leave in a Shanghai red light district, it exposes youngsters to alarming viewpoints that are anti-religious right, anti-morality, and anti-(just believing what you are damn well told!). We now live in a world where we have to constantly worry about our children being presented with abhorrent, new ideas that are slightly different than the stuff our parents forced us to believe.

So they are presenting “a handy comparison tip sheet for concerned Christian parents.”

Inappropriate Ideas Children Are Exposed To In The Golden Compass:
Ideas Children Are Exposed To In God’s Word, The Holy Bible:
Golden Compass teaches children that bears can talk.
The Bible makes it factually clear to children that only snakes and donkeys can talk. “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
Genesis 3:1 “And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee?”
Numbers 22:30

There’s a lot more satirical goodness where that came from.
