Skip to comments.Noah a la Hollywood
Posted on 04/03/2014 1:06:03 PM PDT by MoochPooch
With the release of its new biblical blockbuster Noah, Hollywood has once again proven it knows all too well the secret of the one animal singled out for greatest contempt among all the different species identified as non-kosher.
Do you know why the pig has always been the personification of the forbidden food we are most warned against consuming? The rabbis explain its because every other animal that is not kosher lacks the two signs, split hooves and chewing its cud, that are both necessary to identify it as permissible. A cow is an example of an animal that fulfills both requirements, and is thus kosher. A horse is not kosher because it fulfills neither. There is only one animal in existence that seems kosher because it has split hooves, but is really not kosher because it doesn't chew its cud and that is the pig.
The pig is the one animal that presents us with a kosher façade. It thrusts its foot forward as if to present credentials of divine approval, all the while withholding its concealed characteristic that renders it forbidden.
It is the hypocrisy implicit in the pigs desire to mislead us that explains why it has rightfully gained the distinction of being regarded as the most repulsive of all in the category of the non-kosher.
And that, to my mind, is the real offense of Darren Aronofskys $130 million version of Noah and the story of the flood as supposedly recounted in the book of Genesis.

I mean really Jewish. As in Orthodox. The director might have been born a Jew, but trust me, what he presented on the screen was not Judaism, let alone Bible.
Noah ala Hollywood / Atheist Director
I jues now hear and AD for Noah...on Christain Radio.
they now are running a disclaimer...that the movies not EXACTLY biblical
that being said why did they feel the need to USE the Biblical Text as a springboard foor their ficiton.
Seriously, the biggest problem with this crap film is pigs??
The author was using pigs as an analogy. Just as pigs may seem outwardly kosher but are not, this film may be presented to the public as “Biblical” when obviously it isn’t.
the Pigs who made.... and are promoting it! They are the REALLY big problem with the film.
