THE GOLDEN COMPASS

Supposedly it is going to be boycotted because it is "anti-Catholic". Again, an example of the remarkable leeway religion gets in criticizing anything, while viewpoints that criticize it even mildly are instantly condemned because they "tread upon personal faith, and that is a personal issue". The damn thing is anything but personal. Trust religious people to interpret everything the way they want and find offense in it, even in a harmless fantasy fictional story. I look forward to the movie and boycott the boycott.

At least it isn't banned. I too welcome the boycott; we'll have lesser crowds.

Yes, and somehow in spite of the stupidity things are not as bad here as in our country; at least they won't burn buses or theaters here.

The irksome but satisfying thing is that boycotts (and bans) always increase publicity for something that might otherwise have passed into oblivion.

True! As long as they don't burn down the theater...
