The moral compass at the USCCB seems to be off magnetic north. For some unfathomable reason the organization has put out a favorable review of "The Golden Compass".
LifeSite offers what might give us a clue as to the reason:
WASHINGTON, DC, November 30, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Harry Forbes has for many years been the Director of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Office for Film and Broadcasting. In 2005, LifeSiteNews.com pointed out that Forbes issued a glowingly positive review of the homosexual propaganda film "Brokeback Mountain". Yesterday, Forbes issued another positive review, this time for the film adaptation of the specifically anti-Catholic novel "The Golden Compass."...
In what the League calls "mind-boggling", the USCCB review actually congratulates the screenwriter for portraying the characters as demonstrating "free will" for their opposition to the Magisterium and then suggests that this is a reflection "entirely in harmony with Catholic teaching".
Read all of it...
The USCCB website may have taken the review down. When I went to the "G" list and clicked the down arrow, the movie should have been listed between "Golden Child" and "Golden Eye", but it's not there.
Like so many other things the Bishops have done, it simply boggles the mind!
