I know she is supposed to be an "aunt," and by that i presume, "blood relative" of POTUS, but is it just me, or is their absolutely NO family resemblance? Can we get a blood test?
really? In a day of crazies and unstable people, you want us to use our real names on the WORLD wide web? No thanks. I'm all for personal responsibility, but when speaking to the nameless masses, i prefer anonymity.

I agree with Scott4872. Apologizing, and whimpering over "their" fascism only emboldens the aggressor. Nothing was done that they we did not allow.. If Mozzila had an ounce of courage they would have stood up to them and said "so what!" We are a nation of cowards. all of us. We need more Gandalfs to stand up and shout, "You Shall Not Pass!"

no. I don't miss the point. that is my point. It's free enterprise. Movies are made in large part based on what revenues they will bring in. Bring in no money, no movie. i get to choose. If I find a movie offensive, I get to say so. And I don't have to endorse it. In this way, Hollywood shapes their movies into "what the market will bear." It's just very odd to me that so many christian commentators were initially "appalled" Now everyone's on the bandwagon like it's the obamacare of the right and telling me i "need" to support this. I don't "need" to. I don't want to. If you read my other post, i point out that i am for dramatizing the biblical story. Just do it right.

Second. Who says going to see the movie will encourage noble thoughts from the producers? Maybe instead, they will say, "christians don't care. Throw out any movie with biblical names, and a vaguely biblical theme and christians will flock." Perhaps, producers will draw the conclusion that Christians are as biblical illiterate as they themselves. The Bible is fill withed amazing stories. Wonder and Majesty. Miracles and "magic." As Tolkien said, it is a "Myth that is true." It's beautiful all by itself. I believe in story. Our hearts are tuned to story from birth. Dramatizing biblical stories is a fine idea. Christians SHOULD be on the front lines. doing more of this. Did Francis Schaeffer teach us nothing?? But when it comes to dramatization i draw the line at presenting God to be less than he is, to be something he is not. The flood story is a picture of salvation. It is our story. Why are christians content to let Hollywood hijack our story? We've always known it is fantastic and epic, and amazing. Why turn it over to the hands of someone else to mock and destroy?

how much did they pay you columnists to like the films? do you get a kickback? you say,Thomas, that we should all go see the film so more will be made. What about Son of God, and "God's not Dead" to fully "christian" movies, in theaters now, being overshadowed, but the heretical "noah." Why are you not endorsing these? Perhaps if you endorsed these movies, more money would be pored into their budgets and they could afford better scriptwriters and better actors.
he did right?? I was thinking I read it wrong. how does matthews keep his job?
yes. And What IS a car bomber?? One who bombs cars? Who are they? Why do they bomb the cars? ARe the cars bad? I have never heard of this type of person.
What is that supposed to mean?! What a small little man. Has Matthews looked in a mirror lately?? Perhaps he could show us a picture of a "carbomber." cause I'm not really sure what that looks like. Make an assertion like that and you need to support it.
