I can't believe how much ITV 22:30 news is turning into the Daily Mail.
They've just introduced a piece on The Golden Compass by saying that it is being accused of "indoctrinating children into atheism".
The piece itself was just a bit of fluff saying the film is anti-religion and not saying much else. They also found time to mention that author of the story, Phillip Pullman, has been described as the 'new antichrist' and 'most dangerous author in Britain'.
Firstly, just how do you indoctrinate someone into atheism?
Secondly, so it is ok to indoctrinate children into religion?
Maybe we aren't that much different from the USA after all.
