Details emerge, and the comedy of errors continues:
Donna Freitas, a visiting assistant professor of religion at Boston University, calls the Pullman books a "theological masterpiece" in an Associated Press interview. The article, as a whole, however, isn't so bad and hits most the important and widely-known points.
Regarding New Line Cinema's attempts to advertise The Golden Compass in Catholic publications, that deal is being brokered by Advertising Media Plus, which arranges group advertisement buys for Catholic publishing institutions. It is a division of the Cathedral Foundation.
Finally, Ryan of Catholic Audio submits his satirical version of New Line's already-famous advert: Finally, some truth in advertising.
Still no public word from the USCCB in response to New Line Cinema's flagrant misuse of an already-problematic review of The Golden Compass. For all my previous posts on this story, click here.
