Skip to comments.Hate Mail from Hollywood

I never received a response from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences regarding our Passion for Fairness petition. But I did just receieve an e-mail from an exceedingly hateful Steve Norris, who claims to represent the Academy. Here's the e-mail.

You have to excerpt your own email??
Why did it take the release of "The Passion of the Christ", a Christian film made outside of H'weirdo film making political machinery, to pull H'weirdo film making out of the red and doldrums, but yet the film and producer are ignored by H'weirdo and its perverts?
Hmmmm. Then, how could they award a Documentary Oscar to The Fat Non-documentarian for the non-documentary, "Bowling"?
That's different, don't you get it? Moore shares their "religious" beleif in socialism.
He was quoted in a CNN column so perhaps the Academy saw the article.
If the Oscar ceremony hadn't proven long ago that it is an unwatchable, irrelevant, self-congratulating, agenda-driven annual slap in the face to normal Americans, I'd probably give a rip about your opinion.
Lol. That guy sounds crazy - yet he has the temerity to refer to you as a zealot! Lol. You should be proud and honored.
did he say Spoogebob??????
I checked Mr. Norris' body of work on IMDB.com and got two choices. One was an editor who's only work was on "The Many Faces of Christopher Lee". The other was the producer of "Le Confessional" which sounds French.
And you have the nerve to post this zealotry on FR, "a bastion of right-wing lunacy", just a bunch of "partisan political operatives."
You have your nerve, you zealot!
I googled the name and found a couple of hits on a producer named Steve Norris. He had one film in 1999(My Life So Far). I don't know if they are the same person or two different ones, but neither of them sound like THEY have done anything of note.
Hey...I like that!!!
If he felt, simply, that PASSION was too mediocre for Oscar consideration, then I can see his point.
If, however, he disliked the film for its religious message, then he is being a hypocrite. He himself, by condemning what he sees as "zealotry," is promoting his own liberal views. (And most of the Hollywood films do.)
I'm a little awestruck that he would declare The Passion a "mediocre" film, when I was blown away by its cinematography. But then again, I never support any of the Academy's selections for Best Picture. I would have liked to see "Eternal Sunshine" nominated for Best Picture, but what do I know?
Yet, b/c Christian-hating Academy voters are turned off by the movie's depiction on the last hours of Christ, and b/c Mel Gibson is a practicing Christian.....it won't get an Oscar. Talk about hypocrisy.....Hollywarped's output is gratuitously violent, but sees fit to criticize the reality of the violence of Christ's death.
Memo to Follywood: The Passion of the Christ is a true story.
Of course when Hollyweirdos load up their films with gratuitous sex and violence, the Academy voters get very thoughtful, and start talking about "artistic meaning."
Hollywarped can go fly a kite. Who needs the faux gilt-painted Oscar of atheists, Christian-haters, humanists, dividers and rumor-mongers?
We, the people, have had it with Hollywarped's endless proselytizing, the continuous brainwashing of audiences without their knowledge or consent. Hollyweirdos engage in Christian-hating, American-hating, and they chip away at Western civilzation, all under the guise of "artistic expression."
Differing points of view? These are the same people who came out with their fangs bared when The Passion of The Christ debuted. They're mot looking for differing points of view...............thay want only to trample on-- and silence---the Christian point of view.
The Passion of The Christ served to unmask the Christian haters hiding in the woodwork. They came out in droves to bash Mel and the movie.
Secular Taliban Hit Squads denigrated and marginalized Christians, and Christian beliefs, stooping to the lowest levels of condescension to bash Christian audiences.
Secular Taliban shock troops came out in full battle regalia. The first foray had ADL Abe ----champion of free speech and civil rights---bashing the film, claiming the film was anti-Semitic. That didn't work. NYT's Frank Rich attacked next----said it was fascistic. Then his NYT colleague Maureen Dowd said it was crass. That didn't work.
Andy Rooney bashed it on CBS and SNL evilly caricatured it on NBC. That didn't work either. Newsweek's Evan Thomas told Imus it was a snuff film. Even so-called conservative columnist Dr Charles Krauthammer (Fox News commentator) trashed it in the WashPo calling The Passion a singular act of interreligious aggression. And Christian Hitchens---in his usual drunken stupor--said it was homo-erotic.
John Kerry was also among the film's naysayers (no surprise). Kerry said that he was "unsure" about it (Reuters, "Democrat Kerry Urges Caution on 'Passion,' 26 February 2004, by Patricia Wilson). "I don't know," Kerry said when asked if he would see the Mel Gibson film Christians flocked to see.
As a presidential candidate, Kerry's comments were loaded with meaning, and an an unspoken message to believers that Kerry would strengthen secularists power over believers.
At the same time, Kerry praised foul-mouthed Whoppi Goldberg and went to Hollywood for votes and donations, in exchange for trashing everything Christians stand for. Kerry worships abortion, the homosexual agenda,and the stripping away of every Christian symbol in America.
I firmly believe that Kerry's loss was precipitated by his comments downgrading the Passion, as tens of millions of Christians were in its thrall. It was one of his major campaign mistakes. Word got around.......Kerry's comments about The Passion were received by Christian groups, pastors and churches all over the nation.
Now lefties have lost their stranglehold on American culture and Bible-believing Christians are in positions to restore the culture and stand up to the Secular Taliban's decades-long ambition to eradicate all vestiges of religion from America.
Hollywaste better learn to live with it.
