We actually do more for the poor than atheists like you do. I am sorry that you feel you must contribute to the immorality so prevalent in society today by denying your Lord.

This film will come and go, but Christianity is here to stay despite all the efforts of the godless. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame, ok?

I was just going to type the same thing Franck. Like Dan whats-his-name's book--about Jesus and Mary Magdalene, that the Media loved so much, this book and the DVD's of this movie will be at the garage sales for 25 cents in a year or so, while ever-more Catholics will be attending Mass and saying the Rosary.

Golden Compass is a fad and will die a natural death in a year or so. The Truth of Our Lord has lasted 2,000 years, and will continue to last.

Golden Compass is a work of fiction.. the sooner you morons understand that, the better off you will be..

<<The Truth of Our Lord has lasted 2,000 years, and will continue to last.>>

The truth is, your god is imaginary and your bible is a work of fiction, too!

Have you ever been to a soup kitchen? have you ever heard of the Salvation Army? have you ever heard of Matt Talbot, Dorothy Day? We Christians give a whole lot to Charities, infact WE run them! We give billions,Now what do you do to feed the homeless? Or do you make fun of them? The man who wrote the golden compass is a profeses his hate towards Christianity.The film also promotes the occult. It is a heretical portrayal of the human person.

Thank you for your extremely accurate critique of 'The Golden Compass' and your expert insight into the mind of its author. I also congratulate you on your literary skills.

I've heard of Dorothy Day, she was in the film 'The Deadwood Stage' wearing a buckskin suit and singing about whips. As for the others, never heard of them.

You're moral? Well, you aren't acting like it by defying God and those who follow Him.

If you were my daughter I might lock you up in a room and take away your internet. Do your parents know that you are on the internet bragging in front of men about masturbating? Is this the kind of help you give to kids every day? Is this the kind of filth you teach them? Hatred of God and masturbation?

Franck, I think your Internet should be cut off. How can anyone have respect for Christians if you have to bad mouth everyone who has an opinion that is different to yours.

You must have lots of spare time on your hands - maybe you should take up masturbation (or do more of it) and it is not a sin to masturbate maybe to brag about it is (like boasting about how many Catholic books one has read is).

Coolmind - do not judge Christians by the attitude of Franck "the hidden one"(He has to hide behind a proxy).

I hide my proxy because of business and it's the smart thing to do on the internet. Did you now you can be traced right to your front door
by your IP address?

It just puts wrinkles right in your rear end doesn't it that one can be well read and not fear
telling the truth about it? LOL!

You're showing your intelligence by resorting to crude and vulgar insults like that young lady does. If you were anything of a gentleman, you wouldn't be encouraging her to conduct herself like a strumpet on the internet before men. That has led to dangerous consequences for young women.

She needs to conduct herself in more of a ladylike manner. Obviously, someone in her young life has failed to tell her that. Heard about the missing college student that led a secret life of porn on the internet? I don't want to see this young woman, Coolmind, end up meeting some nut on the internet because of the loose manner in which she is conducting herself. She's a pretty young lady and she's very young by her appearance. She really needs some stern help. She looks like she's just a kid.

Crude and Vulgar insults. Check your posts! Nothing crude or vulgar in mine. Your the one who went searching for her posts so I would say she should be very wary of you.

Enough of this. God shall judge you and me as he judges all of us. We are not to judge.

Mick, my man, she puts her posts on her profile. I didn't have to search far. I always look at people's profiles. Don't act like I'm singling her out. I've looked at yours too. Posting history can reveal alot about a person.

It probably could Franck but I like to leave posts in their respective areas.

Think I'll leave off all this as I have said my piece on the movie and now not helping the cause by getting into arguments about ones beliefs.

So as the Vulcans say "Live long and Prosper".

A mom is completely right. Parents everywhere should make sure their kids do not think for themselves or test there religious beliefs against the real world. They should be kept in little cages to be feed their parents beliefs. It would be unthinkable to tolerate another persons point of view when the Christian faith is so utterly true. ha If you are so strong with God and your faith then why are you so wound up about a fictional story? So what if you kid sees it? Will it ruin him forever? If so you sure seem to have alot of faith in what you have already got your kid believing...

The "christians" who criticize the film are scared to death of atheism, because it is a direct threat to the spread of their toxic beliefs. They see others who don't go to church, don't live by their idiotic and repressive rules enjoying a much better quality of life than they do, and they don't like it. Too bad.

They'll deny it until the cows come home, but one of the biggest reasons "christian" talibangelists hate atheism is because it gives us freedoms that their repressive -- and OPPRESSIVE -- churches don't allow them to have. Which is not our problem.

Must be tough, frankie, to know that the catholic church is so impotent to control the lives of everyone else. Too bad. The rcc should get used to its impotence in that regard, because it isn't going away anytime soon.

So don't see the movie then, dimbulb. Or is that too hard for YOU to understand.

I'll have to check with a legal expert I know on this, but I strongly believe locking a child away in her room is CHILD ABUSE.

But I doubt Coolmind is a minor, just another woman you dislike because she doesn't embrace the catholic submissive crap the rcc continues to spew out. Tough. Oh, and I've been a legal adult for more than 20 years, before you make an idiot of yourself again.
