Movies and the beach!

Well, I haven’t written in a while. We’ve been at the beach for my dad’s conference! We’re leaving tomorrow, but hey, at least we come back in a couple of weeks with the rest of my family. This was only a business trip for Daddy-O. Anyways, I don’t think I’m quite ready to leave! I’ve had quite a fun time catching fish in the ocean and eating out at those fancy seafood restaurants.

Anyways, today’s topic is about movies. I’m quite a movie buff. I’ll watch anything you throw at me, as long as it’s not too offensive (when I say offensive I mean overly gory or sexual). Well, most of the time. I was reading the plot for a movie called “Saved!”, which you can read for yourself here. I’ve heard of it before, but I’ve never really read much about it. I guess you could say I was nothing short of offended after reading about it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never seen it, but after reading spoilers I got the gist of it. Apparently the plot revolves around Mary, a teenage girl attending a Christian school who gets pregnant while trying to “de-gayify” her boyfriend (smooth move, Mary). Over the course of the movie, she loses her faith and falls in with the misfits at her school. The antagonist is Hilary Faye and her friends, several Christian girls who are downright jerks. I mean, from what I’ve read, those girls are horrible! And they’re the only Christians in the film! In fact, every Christian in the film is either a hypocrite, or just downright mean.

I’m sorry, but that just irks me. What is this film trying to tell us? All Christians are complete snobs? Sure, I know that a lot of Christians do behave like Hilary Faye, but not all of them. In fact, true Christians are very loving and kind and forgiving. We accept you for who you are. Movies where the only decent people are the non-Christians upset me. If people actually embrace these movies, what is Hollywood coming to?
