OMG you guys are cracking me up.
You are OK with the Vatican or St Patrick’s being destroyed on film.
You are OK with watching a movie based on false prophecies.
You are OK with watching a movie that contradicts Revelation as the true prophetic word.
You just want Mecca to get blasted too.
It warms my heart to see such true, honest, and heartfelt Christian conviction on display... [/sarc]
Emmercih destroys Notre Dame in every movie he makes.
If they had not gotten comments from the producer then you might have a point, but they did in fact get his comments on why he did show Christian monuments being destroyed and why he didn’t show Muslim monuments being destroyed.
He is a coward and a PC one at that.
Reason enough not to give him any of my money.
You don;t seem to get that I do know and still don’t CARE what he said.
If you are making a decision on whether or not to see this movie based on religious ethics - and that statement by the producer is what puts you over the edge - then you have no credibility.
If Christianity and/or respect for Christianity are your decision points this movie crosses that line on several fronts - whether or not you get to see Mecca destroyed.
I really want people to be honest and say this is a cultural problem, a problem with fear of the terrorists, cowardly jerks hiding behind studio walls - that’s all fair criticism. But couching this in terms of some sort of Christian outrage because they don’t treat other religions as badly as they treat us is lunacy. (I find it similar to kids on a playground crying about what’s fair - or Democrats on TV - same thing.)
It’s like being OK with someone slapping you as long as they slap everyone else just as hard. It’s the slap that should offend, not the distribution of slaps. If you weren’t offended at being slapped until you found out they weren’t slapping everyone - you need to reset your point of offense. That is what I am trying to get at.
OK, I get you.
If folks want to make their statement on any other basis than yours, they have no credibility.
Have fun with that.
So, in order to get some “respect” for Christianity,
we have to start killing those who blaspheme?
That’s what it takes?
(I’m not serious about it in the least bit, just pointing out the differences.)
Correct me if I’m wrong but I seem to remember South Park having a chance to stick a big stick in the eye of islam over the whole cartoon controversy and they wimped out in the end.
Islam gets respect because they insist on it. There is a lesson there for Christians and Jews.
The South Park guys didn’t wimp out, Comedy Central wimped out, so then the South Park guys got to stick in CC’s eyes too.
I’m saying if they claim Christian outrage and the big problem is the Mecca thing they have no credibility, yes. Anyone claiming honest Christian outrage should have been over the line on a number of issues long before the Mecca thing came to light. However, I see a lot of people looking for a reason to be mad about the Mecca thing, and defaulting back to Christian outrage as an excuse, not as an honest Christian reaction.
The Day After Tomorrow is the worst movie I ever wasted significant amounts of my life on.
Truely a film worthy of my garbage can.
And no, it wasn’t JUST the politics of the film (which were so pungent, I can still smell it years later), but how incredibly, blatantly unrealistic it was.
When it’s on one of the Encore channels, my husband purposely leaves it on to watch my vein pop from my head for his personal enjoyment.
Why people make movies like this is beyond me...actually I know, its all about money but what I cant fathom is why anyone would want to the destruction of earth.
I only watch them to see Bruce Willis come back and
kick major ass, all while tossing out short humorous
red neck colloquialisms.
I believe the SP guys were threatened by the parent company of Comedy Central (Viacom is it?) that if they went through with showing the episode, their contract would be terminated. And Viacom, as far as I know, owns a crap load of other cable channels, so their chances of being picked up elsewhere would be slim.
I wouldn’t say they chickened out.
The Library of Congress has an entire online exhibit refuting your claim.
Ok - thanks for the explanation - makes sense.
You can spin it any way you want - take a look around - turn on a radio, or television, or wander into a movie theater or book store and tell me again how Christian this nation is....
The exhibit you link, a retrospective on the influence of religion in the history of this country, offers nothing to change the fact that this nation is not a theocracy. And that is a GOOD thing. Even as a Christian I do not want my religious leaders in charge of whole of society, that is not their calling, and neither do I want my political and business leaders in charge of my church.
Seriously, can you look around and honestly say this is a Christian nation, or even a nation of Believers? Easter Christmas self proclaimed I once went to a Sunday School class when I was twelve and I say I believe in Jesus ‘Christians’ who neither live as though they believe nor do they promote faith and virtue do not make this nation “Christian”.
I knew this the moment I saw it advertised. “F’’ this movie anyway. When the time comes, however the Good Lord decides to end this, the Muzzies won’t be getting a pass.
