Voices have been raised against New Line Cinema’s production of The Golden Compass in much the same way as the supernatural nature of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series had religious parties concerned, and C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe had anti-Christian groups warning against its allegory of Jesus Christ.
