GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, BUT THE MOVIE IS—AGAIN

Recently, I watched a movie named “God Is Not Dead 2” fully intending to remain neutral although I’d already seen “God’s Not Dead.” The first movie sucked and this one is even worse. It is more propaganda than a movie and the proselytizing is obnoxious. Once again, those poor Christians are getting beat up by secular values liberals and atheists.

Aside from a tortured storyline that only a mother could love, the entire movie is one long piece of complaining about Christian persecution, yet, the examples presented are absolutely without value and worse, they make Christians into a whiney, sniveling bunch of crybabies.

The instances cited are often an item of common sense. It would not be wise for a Hindu to take a job at McDonalds knowing what the job requires. The same goes for nurses at hospitals performing any type of abortion who decide it is against their religion to be involved with even providing support for abortion patients. The answer is easy. Get a job at another hospital or takes care of only those patients that meet your religious bigotry. It is not religious discrimination when you are asked to do your job.

The movie also brings up law suits filed against public businesses such a flower shops, T-Shirt factories and marriage chapels that supposedly serve all until it comes to gays. If any such public place did this to African Americans, the fallout would be immediate and vociferous. That behavior is clear discrimination, but the makers of this movie don’t see it that way.

Rather than making a case for the persecution of Christians, the movie does just the opposite by showing Christian bullying and failure to care about others. The movie credits list all the cases where alleged cases of persecution. Quick checks of the listings show the insensitivity, mean-spiritedness and ridiculousness too deep to understand.

This might be the worst movie I’ve seen this year and there have been some real turkeys. Even a good Christian should be offended by this attempt at movie
 making.

Nice post, Donald, but Daniel W cracks me up!

People should take note of the fact that one Gospel gives the lineage of Jesus through Joseph. Another is said to give that same information through Mary, both in order to prove that Jesus was the military Messiah the Jews were waiting for. There would be no allowed lineage through a woman at that time. The writer simply made a mistake in copying and preacher apologists cover it up.

Now let's look at the lineage of Jesus through Joseph. If this is true then Joseph was his father. We have no devine son of god who is about salvation, redemption, and heaven. We have no 2nd person in a godhead.

I'm not sure what this has to do with god being dead or not, but it certainly gets a lot of the supernatural out of the way. I cannot stress these facts enough, so pardon if you see i have repeated.

Donald, if you want to see an outstandingly bad movie then watch The Witch.

BREAKING NEWS!! God Killed in Drivebye Crucfixion--in the 99th sequel, Jesus and the Holy Ghost have decided they're tired of doing the dirty work and make deal with Lucifer to do the hit. They are both retired now and living on an unknown planet. Hey! It's just as good or perhaps better than any of the steamers the other movies have been.

The no.1 reason god is not dead is because rigor mortis has not set in yet!

I can't wait for "God Is Not Dead 3." Here's a sample plot. I'm in love with Susie but I stopped believing and started bad mouthing god when she ran off with old Charlie. The good Christians will have to rescue the backslider. In the end I tell Jebus I'm sorry. Meanwhile Susie and Charlie get married.

Funny you should mention these cinematic classics. According to Kevin Kruse's One Nation Under God, Cecil B. DeMille was among the many movers and shakers who pushed the PR effort to equate religiosity with patriotism. I was in about 7th grade in Catholic school and we got the day off to see Ben Hur. (I liked Charleton Heston better in Bowling for Columbine.)

Brace yourselves, everyone.  We are experiencing a renaissance of Christian themed movies not seen in the US since the 1950s, when Stalin, Kruschev, and Mao were casting their long shadows across the Homeland.  Ben-Hur, The Robe, Quo Vadis and, lest we forget, The Ten Commandments with its hundreds of promotional monuments and the re-invention of Moses as a prince of Egypt.  Without the specter of the Commies to fight, America is looking for new enemies, and there aren't enough Muslims in the US to be a threat, so atheists, liberals, and intellectuals are in the cross hairs of the harebrained.

I'm not sure but I think the red carpet opening was in Nashville or Memphis. I wonder why? It wasn't in Hollywood with all those heathens.

I don't think the scriptwriters are that inventive, Daniel.  I note, too, that Episode 3 of this travesty is not yet listed on IMDB.com, but it was on rottentomatoes.  Thing is, I have no doubt anything of this ilk will do a great business with their target audience.  The obvious problem is the limited size of said audience.
