The Golden Compass
Rebecca and I went to see The Golden Compass last night. I don't know if you have heard any rumors about it, but they aren't true. The movie was great. I noticed a lot of parallels to mormonism in it. The underlying message is about the battle between agency vs. coercion where some people want to eliminate agency so we will be forced into obedience. The Golden Compass is a tool that helps you know the truth about anything, and the girl is the only one that can read it. Anyway, it all sounds very familiar to Mormons and I would hate to see anyone protest it because of crazy fanatic rumors.
