Scholastic Inc. has chosen to co-produce and heavily promote an upcoming movie, The Golden Compass, one of the books in an anti-Church, anti-Bilibical trilogy of books by Phillip Pullman. Most troubling is that Scholastic, a co-producer of this movie coming out in early December, is heavily promoting the release of the movie and already published book through curriculum resource materials and a sweepstakes in which children can participate. If my son cannot learn creationism in public school, he should not be subjected to a series of stories or a movie that is a direct attack on his faith. Scholastic needs to know that parents are offended not only by their co-production of the movie, but in their inappropriate marketing of curriculum based on such questionable material. Please visit http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/hisdarkmaterials/summary.html to read a synopsis of the three books in this triology. If you agree with me that, in my opinion, Scholastic must be made aware that they have violated our trust by their sponsorship of these matierals, please sign this petition.

Wow, United States7 years ago Comments: This petition is pretty pathetic. The amount of dumb you'd have to concoct in order to think of such a thing makes me wonder if they should start administering IQ tests before being allowed on to the internet. Public school and a MOVIE are two such entirely different examples, one must wonder if YOU went to school. Creationism isn't taught in schools because it's a load of tripe.
