Catholics and other religious groups have organized boycotts of The Golden Compass, a film based on a children's book by an avowed atheist. What are their complaints?
* Directly competing with Margot At The Wedding, which they love
* Compasses inherently promote travel and broadened horizons
* The most sympathetic character is not killed in a prolonged and bloody torture sequence
* Though God is not referenced directly, subtitles pop up on screen to remind viewers when things symbolize God and religion
* Daniel Craig would be better served doing the Lord's work in the next Bond installment
* Breaks unspoken rule that talking CGI animals must be allegorical to Catholicism
* Would have enjoyed some broader anti-Semitic themes
