Jack Black and Hollywood Stars Defame Christ and the Bible; Apology Demanded
Christian Newswire ^ | December 4, 2008

Posted on 12/04/2008 10:49:30 AM PST by Sopater

In a short video posted on FunnyorDie.com entitled, "Prop 8 The Musical," an all star cast of Hollywood celebrities perform a low budget musical farce that defames Christ, mocks Christians and distorts the teaching of the Bible.

"Jack Black should remember from his days at Hebrew School that homosexual acts aren't funny and are roundly condemned in the Bible," said Dr. Gary Cass, of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. "Appearing as a sarcastic, rotund Christ, Black distorts the Bible and condones shameful, homosexual acts. Associating Christ with perverse activity is an affront to all people of faith, especially Christians. Apparently Black and company find it hilarious to falsely accuse Christians while they intentionally distort the Bible. Black ought to apologize."

Proposition 8 which amended the Constitution of California to define marriage as a union of one man and one woman was passed this November. Prop 8 was a response to a California Supreme Court ruling that struck down a similar state statue, Proposition 22. Since passage, Prop 8 supporters have been assaulted and threatened and churches, homes and cars vandalized.

The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is a non-profit organization devoted to protecting the rights of Christians to confidently live their faith. Dr. Gary Cass has degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary. He previously served as Executive Director of the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ, an outreach of Coral Ridge Ministries founded by the late Dr. D. James Kennedy.

Amazing. They portray those who supported Prop 8 as bigots and haters. Yet, in that play, they are the ones doing the hating. The entire play is about them hating a specific group. And I notice that in the “bigot” group there is a lack of black people who overwhelmingly supported Prop 8.

I know that a sodomite is called such after the city of Sodom. What is the parallel for those eating shellfish if Jack Black is going to make an equivalency charge?

This is like getting all worked up over The Last Temptation of Christ, when it was a mediocre movie that justifiably bombed and would never have received any notice at all if Scorsese hadn’t done it and Christians hadn’t picketed it.

Jack Black is a low-talent and not worth the fuss. So Hollyweird doesn’t like us? Yawn.

Yep. This is the guy who thought it wise to brag to an interviewer about losing a weekend -- soon after School of Rock was a hit -- while he was whacked out on ecstasy, coke and booze. Even teenage kids were saying, "Not cool, man!" when they read that.

Personally, I take advise from Jack Black on relevant life issues somewhere after a lady who lives with 100 cats in her house.

I think the left has been making a huge mistake. If they remained low-key they might ultimately get their way on same-sex marriage. The left does its best when they use the old frog in a slowly boiling pot trick. But by attacking Christians they may pull blacks and Hispanics away from the Democrats. I say give them enough room to hang themselves.

They excuse the anti-homosexual doctrine of Islam. They excuse it because Islam shares their hatred of human life.

I watched him hosting something on Nickelodeon, I think it was the Kid’s Choice awards, and I still can’t figure out why anyone thought his audience included the 12 & under group.
The man is an epic douchebag.

http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/12/04/marc-shaiman-on-prop-8-the-musical/?hp

it’s also the result of a process that began when Mr. Shaiman, who splits his time between New York and Los Angeles, alerted his friends and colleagues that Scott Eckern, the musical director of Sacramento’s California Musical Theater, had donated money to a Yes-on-Prop 8 campaign.

So it wasn't enough to pinklist someone who they opposed politically.

Also from that NY Times link:

Is this the first time you’ve created a viral video for the Internet?
I’m so old, I can’t remember. To this extent, certainly. I have done things that have ended up on the Internet. Luckily, nothing sexual. Yet. But the night is still young.


So homosexual sodomy is not sexual, got that?

The only thing he has been good in is Mars Attacks when when he played Billy Glen who got nuked by the martians. That movie is hilarious. Otherwise he is a big fat loser like the rest of Hollywierd.

Saw him for the first time in "High Fidelity." Thought he was great. Then, I saw him in some other movies and he grew tiresome quickly.

Everyone in "High Fidelity," with the exception of Lisa Bonet, was excellent. It's just one of those films.

Yes. He was very funny in “Mars Attacks”. Cute in “Shallow Hal”. Okay in “Kung Fu Panda”. Unwatchable in everything else.

If you’ve seen any of the current crop of fat comic beer and pot joke movies, then you’ve probably seen Jack Black and John C. Rilley in something. Neil Patrick Harris was Doogie Howser and is an out of the closet sodomite.

I have to say that my kids loved his appearances on the Nick Awards and his acting in School of Rock. I have found him entertaining in quite a few things.

I also remind myself and my kids that an entertainer can be monumentally stupid in how they live their lives. When their preaching oevrshadows their performance, I no longer buy their product. It sounds as though Jack Black is getting into that territory for me.

JB was in the King Kong remake and was the worst member of the cast. Without him, the movie was quite good. He just could not come up to the demands of his role. But it isn’t his worst—see him as a south-of-the-border monk/wrestler in Nacho Libre. What a waste of celluloid.

I tried to watch "Nacho Libre" one night and could not get thru it.

Absolutely agree on "King Kong". I don't know what Peter Jackson was thinking, but then the whole first hour was a waste for me too. The shipboard sequences went on forever...AHHHHH!! Casting Jack Black has almost made "The Lord of the Rings" series a fluke. We'll see how he does with "Lovely Bones".
