Dear LM_Netters

I teach in a Catholic school. One of our parents has challenged The Golden Compass 
and wants it and the rest of the series removed from the library. I have started 
proceedings for the process, but would like your help in answering the comments 
that the author is an "athiest" and that the book have an anti-religtion / 
Christian message.

Before this happened I had discussed the book w/ my principal and assured her that 
of all  my former students that had read the book, as well as myself and my 
daughter... none had commented on any anti-religion themes NOR have any of them 
become athiest - at least as a result of reading this book!

Any assistance you can provide is very welcome. I want to make sure this book stays 
in our library.
