I went to see the Golden Compass the other night. I didn’t want to see the movie, but since it was a date, or at least I thought it was going to be a date, I went to see the movie anyways. It was better than I was expecting. I expected a very childish movie, but instead I got a movie with an anti-Religion theme. I suppose you can look at it as just a movie, but you can also see how the movie could be considered anti-Religion. Since Religion doesn’t play a role in my life, I thought of the movie as more like 1984. Down with big government, and up with free thinking, but I guess that could also apply to religion. Anyways after watching the movie I have to say I can’t wait till the next one comes out. Not just because the movie ended like “To Be Continued”, but because the story is pretty good. Anyways I would recommend seeing the movie.
P.S. If you don’t believe the anti-Religion stuff, check out Snopes.

As a person who thinks paying $4+ for a cup of hot chocolate (I don’t drink coffee) is crazy. I also think people getting their panties in a bunch about an saying that is supposedly Anti-God is crazy also. A cup of Hot Chocolate you buy from Starbucks may have this quote on it:
- “Why in moments of crisis do we ask God for strength and help? As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imaginations for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome? After all, we are strong enough to cause most of the catastrophes we need to endure.”
Another Cup may have this quote on it:
- “You are not an accident. Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He wanted you alive and created you for a purpose. Focusing on yourself will never reveal your purpose. You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. Only in God do we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance, and our destiny.”
The fist one you could read as being Anti-God, while the other you can read as being Pro-God. Both are put on a cup and sold to customers. If this shows anything it shows how Starbucks will put what they please on their cups. I don’t care if the cup is Pro or Anti God, it just doesn’t matter to me. So why then does it matter to a person that is Pro-God? What does it matter if a company comes out with Anti-God saying on a cup? I am not complaining about either cup. Why? Because I don’t care. I stopped drinking Starbucks after the first $4 cup of Hot Chocolate. If you don’t like what a company is doing, don’t do businesses with that company.
