I REALLY DO Want To Say Something Good About The USCCB
But then they consistently say such stupid things

Catholic League Slams US Catholic Bishops Conference Positive Review of Golden CompassFirst Brokeback Mountain, Now US Bishops Movie Reviewer Praises Golden Compass
By John-Henry Westen

WASHINGTON, DC, November 30, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Harry Forbes has for many years been the Director of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Office for Film and Broadcasting. In 2005, LifeSiteNews.com pointed out that Forbes issued a glowingly positive review of the homosexual propaganda film "Brokeback Mountain". Yesterday, Forbes issued another positive review, this time for the film adaptation of the specifically anti-Catholic novel "The Golden Compass."

"The Golden Compass," is one of Phillip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy, which includes "Northern Lights" (re-titled "The Golden Compass"), "The Subtle Knife" and "The Amber Spyglass." Pullman wrote these books with the intention of indoctrinating children with atheistic values. Pullman told The Washington Post in 2001 that he was deliberately "trying to undermine the basis of Christian belief.

"The USCCB review approves the film even for adolescents, and dismisses concerns about the radically anti-Catholic nature of the books saying: "Most moviegoers with no foreknowledge of the books or Pullman's personal belief system will scarcely be aware of religious connotations, and can approach the movie as a pure fantasy-adventure. . . . Religious elements, as such, are practically nil."

According to my St. Mary Bulletin dated for Nov 24 and 25 of this year;
Fr. Kuss informs me that Government leaders may lead us astray. Religious leaders, both within the Catholic Church and outside the Catholic Church, may lead us astray. We must never, then, to blindly follow religious or secular leaders, no matter what their job title is.
Then a little further down he asks: Do we blindly follow religious leaders...?

And I am scratching my head thinking, Wow. Who woulda thunk that I would qoute Fr. Kuss and say that it applies!

And neither he nor those he works ofr think children who have seen the movie won't run out and get the books like they did for each Harry Potter novel?

I fully agree that His Dark Materials, in whatever form, are most suited for composting, recycling, or thermal depolymerization. But hey! Read this post by Fr. Z, and you may be able to say something good about the USCCB!
