Catholic League objects to ‘Compass’

Donohue says Pullman book promotes atheism

Given the past protest the Catholic League has waged over Hollywood pics, it can’t be too surprising that the org is now objecting to New Line’s upcoming “Golden Compass.”

But the org, led by Bill Donohue, says it’s sold 20,000 copies of “The Golden Compass: Agenda Unmasked,” creating a nice cottage industry of its own. That’s just what many opponents of “The DaVinci Code” did when Sony released the pic in 2006.

The League’s $5, 31-page pamphlet is aimed more at Philip Pullman’s trilogy of books, with the charge that they are sold as innocent children’s fantasy but instead promote atheism. They hope the movie tanks and discourages New Line from doing any more adaptations.

Like the furor over “Code,” chances are that religion and its critics will survive intact.
