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.
