Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio Some, but not all, of Utah's religious community are urging a boycott of an upcoming movie they say is anti-God.
"The Golden Compass" is based on a series of children's books written by an atheist. The Catholic League, a national organization, is urging a boycott of the film.
However, Salt Lake's Madeleine Choir School Principal Christina Vierra McGill is not. "For our children to approach all of this with a very critical eye is the best thing that they can do," she explained.
McGill did include information on the movie in a recent newsletter but says the school will never ban the books or the film.
E-mails have been circulating among some members of the Catholic and LDS churches with concerns about the books' anti-religion themes.
