Younger audiences cannot relate to the original one so they made a new one with new effects so I do not understand why you seem to think that it was anything intentional by the director.
And no, those do show strong Christian characters and do not insult the faith. Other examples are Braveheart.
None of this has anything to do with my original post, however.
My original post pointed out how obviously self serving the lesbian directors motivation was, to direct a movie that clearly portrays the opponent of homosexuality as a demented wacko. I wouldn't have even said anything, but this is a pervasive message, that Hollywood has been trying to influence unattended minds with forever. Alot of you don't seem to realize that movies are used to manipulate our thoughts and beliefs.
And none of what you are complaining about in your original post has anything to do with why this movie was remade.
And I never said it was why it was remade. My point has always been that it must do a homosexuals heart good and would be especially satisfying to get to portray Christians as total wackos.
It's done all the time by liberal Hollywood! They even make it a point to use curse words that are taboo to Christians (i.e. taking the lords name in vain). I hear GDs and JCs in movies as often as Hollywood's other most cliched curse, which is currently "for *beep* sakes."
You are aware that there are countless, COUNTLESS Homosexuals who were raised in religious households and/or even identify or consider themselves to be Christian or religious, right? Just because the Bible contains verses that speak against Homosexuality, doesn't automatically pit every fiber of every Homosexual against God. There are many in the LGBT community that hold their religious/Christian views very close to them.
Sure, there are many Gays who are against Christianity or religion in general but a person doesn't have to be Gay to feel that way. There are many people who poke fun at Christians and other religions.
NEWS FLASH: You do not live in a Christian world.
You're expecting Hollywood and the entire world around you to operate according YOUR view and religious faith.
This may come as a complete and total shock to you but not every action or word muttered in every movie or television program is used with the intention to tick you off or to make fun of you and your faith.
If you are this easily offended (and paranoid), then stick to watching reruns of Benny Hinn and the 700 Club.
Any intelligent gay knows that the Bible doesn't just speak against homosexuality, it labels it an abomination! Gays that also profess to be a Christian, are just deluding themselves.
I live in a country founded upon Christianity, despite what the revisionist historians are teaching!
No, I'm only countering Hollywood's assault on morality. If you don't see it, you're missing something! Every movie today, contains copious drug use, promiscuity and/or homosexuality. And these things aren't portrayed in a negative light. They portray promiscuity as female empowerment, drug use as casual & commonplace and homosexuality as being as natural as heterosexuality. I'm 38 years old and I worry for our future as the percentage of gays increases. It's in vogue among school kids today. I meet many and it's very common for them to either say they're gay or to be going both ways.
I never said any of it was. I said they are purposely influencing our thoughts and beliefs, to suit their liberal agenda.
I have no idea what Benny Hinn is, unless you misspelled Benny Hill and I've never watched any religious program. You're jumping to the conclusion that I'm a Christian, when in reality, I'm just a person who believes it's moral code and would like to some day improve myself to the point, that I can feel like I belong amongst them.
You didn't solve any problem and the only way you could, would be to get Hollywood to stop glamorizing the things I've mentioned.
I'M DONE HERE, SO DON'T EXPECT ANOTHER REPLY(unless of course, you slander me in such a way, that I can't ignore).
You don't have to "improve yourself". Christianity is not about perfection. You come as you are. Nobody is perfect. God knows that and He loves and accepts everyone.
Yes, you do have to strive to be the best person you can be. I'm not blind and I understand your point, but you can't just accept your flaws and keep repeating them. Your view is why a lot of Christians don't represent Christianity well. They think they can go out on Saturday night, get drunk and do whatever usually follows, then go to church on Sunday. Unless you mean, show up as you are and God will change you?
I didn't say Christianity was a club, all I said and meant was that I'm not to that point yet, I'm not ready and that's a fact. I understand humans will never reach perfection, but that doesn't mean you don't try and that you just resign yourself to your sinful ways. I still get angry, I still get jealous, etc,. I have a wife and a daughter that I hold above God, and that's also wrong. I've come a long way, but I have a long way to go.
I respect some of the things you've said and I think you're a decent person. I just think you've bought into the kinder and gentler, PC movement, where I'm passed that. I used to fight for all those things as a teenager and now that the pendulum has swung the other way, I see everything has gone too far. As a nation, we can't support sinful ways and by legalizing gay marriage, that's what we're doing. Earlier you said lying is a sin as much as homosexuality is and that's not true, from where I stand, God destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah, not because people were lying. Homosexuality is especially offensive to God. Read Genesis 19.
I've never hated or wanted to harm gays, but I don't believe our government should support and sanction non-Christian ideals. I don't hate minorities, but I don't think we should be changing to suit them, they should be assimilating our culture and language. There should also be a cap on how many immigrants we can take in. And yes rap culture sickens me, but I wouldn't be bothered by it, if it hadn't permeated every aspect of our modern culture. My daughter is being influenced by it's disgusting messages.
Infinite_Rage have you even read the book, or seen the original movie?
All of the "anti-christian" elements are pretty much a given with any adaption of Carrie.
The OP is an arrogant, idiotic troll.
Chloe isn't Gay, you moron. He was saying that the director may have picked her because she thought Chloe was attractive.
It's astounding to see how quickly you draw conclusions from your own misunderstands and run with them as if they are facts.
You're the moron! Chloe has gay brothers and her sexuality has been questioned by fans and the media. How the hell would you know what MiscoMuck meant anyway, you pretentious [BEEP]?
What is your personal motivation for getting all over me? You act like a desperate freak, making me wonder what your story is.
And? Just because she has Gay brothers and has had her sexuality questioned by media doesn't set her own personal sexual orientation in stone.
It's pretty damn obvious what MiscoMuck meant. My understanding of his/her post was even confirmed in his/her response to me. (Notice he/she didn't respond to you).
And did you really just try to call me a name? I'm so offended. How UNChristian of you.
And I could just as easily ask you - What is your personal motivation for getting all over the director of this movie and assuming to know her mind and why she agreed to direct this remake?
Did I say her sexuality was set in stone? Did I even imply it was? I merely explained why, once MiscoMuck brought up Chloe, I looked her up and learned these things, that could increase the likelihood that she's gay. I had no inclination whatsoever, to question her sexuality beforehand.
I didn't notice, because I don't troll the thread. So I mistook MiscoMuck's comment and what's your point about whether I noticed that MiscoMuck didn't reply to me?
You must be slow, because I've explained over and over what my motivation is. Do I need to say it again? I can't understand though, why anyone, but a homosexual, would argue so vehemently in their favor.
