I do not call myself "atheist". It's a word others put on me. It's silly because they cannot even define what a "theist" actually believe. For most "atheist" simply means "not a member of Christianity" and I find it revealing when people toss around a label for those who are not submit to their cult in a "those who are not with us are against us" kind of fashion.
Also I am not against religions. I am against dogmas which includes lethal and oppressive suggestions which misdirect and segregate mankind. This just happen to include most world religions and several political ideologies.

Personally I am not in a rush to see Golden Compass. Neither was I in a rush to see Narnia. I have not seen Passion of the Christ but I would love to see a movie based on the life of Muhammad, Siddharta or the story of Krishna and Arjuna.
