Posted by Eliot Weinstein on December 9, 2007

Catholics used to complain that anti-Catholicism was the anti-semitism of the intellectuals, but this was before the intellectuals went back to anti-semitism.

The Right Coast blogger Tom Smith, while arguing that The Golden Compass (the newly-released movie based on Philip Pullman’s fantasy trilogy) is anti-Christian and anti-Catholic.

Here is Roger Ebert’s review of the movie. Ebert, who is himself Roman Catholic (albeit one who is theologically agnostic about he existence of God), does not find either the movie or the book trilogy to be objectionable.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
