So says the Atlantic Monthly in a story on the controversy surrounding The Golden Compass and its transition from anti-religious novel to not-quite-so-anti-religious movie. In addition to getting some revealing quotes from author Philip Pullman and writer-director Chris Weitz, reporter Hanna Rosin spoke to me and at least one other Christian commentator for this story, but since it is accessible only to Atlantic Monthly subscribers, I have no idea whether it quotes us. At any rate, a summary of the story is available at the fan site BridgeToTheStars.net.
