Yeah! Let's do it... that'll probably be a Cedar-Lee shown flick? Or is it a mass-market type film?

Morgan mentioned the upcoming flick, "The Golden Compass" and intrigued, I found the following rather lengthy article from "Christianity Today" about it. It is actually a well-reported and well-rounded article offering both views-that the atheist Pullman's trilogy and resulting film promote atheism, and that certain elements of the film are actually spiritual.
Somewhere in the article the writer posits that Christians fear if this first film "is successful" that it will pave the way for screen versions of the other two books in the trilogy which portray the killing of God and various other such "anti-Christian" scenes.
So, instead of paying money to see "Expelled" which would make THAT a successful film, how about we go see the atheist film and help make it more successful!!!!!!!!!! No?
It opens 12/7. If people are interested, let's get a group together and go and then maybe go for coffee or eats after to discuss. We could use this article for discussion points after. Maybe we could even make such an outing the December meetup? Those not wanting to see the movie could still meet us after? What does everyone think?
