Hollywood and God

Hollywood and God


Cosas raras del cristianismo. Una muestra mas del fanatismo extremo de los cristianos, no se si estos señores no tienen nada que hacer y ahora todo es pecado. Pero es verdaderamente curioso como se inventan cada cosa...

Did you know that there was a time when the entertainment industry was bound by a code that forbade them from using any blasphemy in a movie? The “Hays Code” stated:

Pointed profanity--this includes the words “God,” “Lord,” “Jesus,” “Christ” (unless used reverently), “Hell,” “S.O.B.,” “damn,” or every other profane or vulgar expression, however used--is forbidden.

Hollywood is no longer restricted by the code. Many of today's movies don't simply blaspheme the name of Jesus. They go one further. For example, the award-winning Blow, directed by Ted Demme, is a typical R-rated film. The name of Jesus Christ is blasphemed eleven times in the movie. Three of those times, for some reason, the "F" word is used in the middle of His name.

It’s become popular for church websites to give a little insight into the pastor’s likes and dislikes, so that you can get to know him better and perhaps imitate him. On one site, when the senior pastor is asked about his favorite movie, he says, “Tough one; I’m a movie freak -- used to be Lost Boys (vampire movie) . . . I like anything intense, brutal, mind-bending, etc.” His associate one-ups him. He answers, “Snatch with Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro. Great film if you can get past the 493 F-bombs!” Apparently he got past them without a problem. Actually, he was exaggerating a little when he said that the movie used “F” word 493 times. I located the original script and counted each time the word was used. It was used 156 times, and the name of Jesus was blasphemed 11 times.

I've been clicking around your blog, it has really nice content! It is wonderful to find blogs in Spanish that are promoting the true Word of God, it is a great encouragement. Keep up the great work for the Lord.

BTW, did you write, sing, and play guitar for those songs? They are very nice.

1 Corinthias 15:58, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
