I haven't seen the movie and won't likely anytime soon. Just not a movie goer, nor do I like contributing to the Hollywood hatred of Christianity. That aside, Luke's statement is very perplexing. How does telling the story of a Christian conversion and life in a movie, amount to "forcing it down people's throats.". If the Zamperini family wanted the movie that way, fine. But characterizing the development of the film to include acting out the Christian aspects of the story as somehow unbiblical, borders on the cowardly, and it certainly doesn't qualify as forcing it down anyone's throats. Sadly, the Christian cultural narrative today is being directed by humanists. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket. Why are Christians so afraid of being falsely accused. Yes, you can let your light shine very openly and firmly, yet with the love of God knowing when to walk away from those who resist. Those who bought a ticket, if nothing else, are paying to have Hollywood "force something down their throat's". And why let Hollywood off the hook? As if they have never used movies to direct social change?
