Controversy Surrounding the Movie "The Golden Compass"

There is outrage being expressed all across the internet over the new movie, "The Golden Compass," starring Nicole Kidman. People are mad because they say that the film is anti-religious and pro-atheism. But after reading this review by Roger Ebert I get the feeling that once again, like they often do, the far right has gone off on a tangent just because God is involved in the plot. It's just a movie folks. Did you get angry when George Burns played God in a movie? Or John Travolta was a cigarette smoking, womanizing angel?  And all you are really doing is creating more interest in wanting to see it.  I am not much on fantasy movies, but this one sounds like a cross between "Lord of the Rings" and "Rosemary's Baby" to me, which would make quite a fantastic film.
