Don't Support Me

I finally saw the preview. I had been waiting for quite a while to see the preview. Its graphics look very life like and are pretty amazing... much like other movies of that type; Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Harry Potter, Pan's Labyrinth. I have been waiting to see the preview since the minute I heard about the author and the series this movie is based off of.
Viewers of the movie (which is geared to a younger audience) may be intrigued by the movie to buy the series of books, "His Dark Materials". From the many articles I have read... that is the author's desire. To hook you. Several websites claim that this film has been watered down from the original book to make it more appropriate for the big screen but also as a tactic to draw you to buy the series. The thing they don't express in the trailer and in all the movie push right now is that the author is an atheist.
Check out these websites:
One site above quoted the author (Pullam) in a 2003 interview saying "My books are about killing God."

I will be the first to admit that the preview makes the movie seem good. (I like those kind of amazes me how they make it all so real.)
Enjoy the movie if you choose, but you choose. I personally don't think I can support an atheist author who is trying to "kill God in the minds of children."

Yeah...this pretty much makes me really ticked off. I can't believe what it's's just another thing that we Christians have to fight about. Argh...
