Not too long ago I went to a movie theatre to see the 50h anniversary remastering of "Ben-Hur" -- not the chopped-up, dummied down version you see on AMC, but the original four hour movie the way it was originally produced. The theatre was packed to the doors with a mixture of all demographics. When the title flashed on the screen: "Ben-Hur: A Story of The Christ", nobody ran screaming for the exits or demanded the theatre be sterilized for their protection. Through the whole four hours the theatre was silent, and no one, that I could see, was texting anyone. There is still an audience for a rip-snorting movie about God.
