The film adaptation of Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” is being edited to “remove references to God and the church.” Apparently Pullman is understanding, and recognizes that “You have to recognise that it is a challenge in the climate of Bush’s America.”

The book is all about “God and the church.” If they cut that out, then what the hell are they making the movie about? New Line, New Line … thank you for making LOTR into three films instead of two, but WTF are you doing?
