Religious groups continue to call for boycott of The Golden Compass

The religious furore surrounding the new film The Golden Compass has moved to the US where Christian groups are again up in arms about the content of the dark fantasy which is released in America this Friday.

The Catholic League, which has already called for people to boycott the film in the UK, has been sending out leaflets denouncing the movie, which is based on the book Northern Lights, from Philip Pullman’s Dark Materials trilogy.

“The Catholic League wants Christians to stay away from this movie precisely because it knows that the film is bait for the books,” said Mr Donohue.
