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
