Hollywood star Gerard Butler increased his security team at the Toronto Film Festival over the weekend after receiving death threats.
The "300" star has been promoting his role in controversial movie "Machine Gun Preacher," a true-life story based on a Hells Angel who rescues orphans in Muslim-dominant Sudan after converting to Christianity.

This is a movie I’m going to see.
I’m SHOCKED! /sarcasm
With any luck they'll choke on their own vomit and die. Rock on ROP.
Might not be just Muslims making the threats in this case. From what I’ve read, the group Sam Childers (i.e. the real life guy this movie is based on) has had the most conflict with is a group calling itself the “Lord’s Resistance Army.” From what I gather, the LRA is equal parts terrorist organization and nutcult perversion of Christianity, somewhat in the vein of Jim Jones.
Real life guy was on FOX the other morning,like 2 days ago,and seemd pretty calm,no mention, so no ones busting his balls yet
He made no mention of this on fox the other morn
Please don’t jihad my Gerard!
start’en to look like no one cares......
Apparently the Lord’s Resistance Army kidnaps children and makes them slaves, either as soldiers or sex slaves. Childers leads armed raids into their territory to rescue these kids. I’d say it’s the LRA making the threats. The LRA is apparently a “christian” group ala Jim Jones only they have guns.
The real life guy said on FOX these countries kill like thousands of kids a MONTH.......
Yeah. The little bit that I looked up was heartbreaking.
Jim Jones was a radical San Francisco communist. Funny, how the media likes to not mention that little fact...
Waiting for CAIR’s denunciation of the death threats...
To really anger the Muslims they should make a movie about Lepanto. If done well, it would make one Hell of a movie.
Sounds like a great movie.
