I was just going to put this in the comments but thought I would post it instead. Grimjack
left a comment about my last post. And I wanted to comment on it.
While thinking about what I wanted to say, part of me wanted to just lamblast everyone and pretty much just quit the whole blogging thing. I didn't just say that so I could get people to try and get me to keep blogging. I don't look for sympathy. Ask my family, they know me better than anyone. I have a hard time giving people sympathy when it is a blatant try at getting sympathy. Anyways, I still don't know if I am going to keep blogging but we will just have to see.
Here were the comments from Grimjack:
"You guys know that was a movie, right? They didn't actually have sex."
I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you don't really think that I am so stupid that I know this wasn't some kind of porno and that it was just acting. So I am not even going to touch that.
"The movie didn't promote homosexuality. It simply told a story. A sad and actually boring one."
You know what, you may be right. I didn't see any commercials that said, "See this movie, two men having sex in a tent, and it is beautiful" I didn't see the movie. Let me be completely clear about my problem with the movie and Hollywood in general is. You can't just simply tell a story. Once, you hear something, whether it be a story or comment, or whatever, you are changed forever. Everything you do or hear or see changes your life in some way or another.
But what did happen, was the media and homosexual society latched onto this movie with all its might and used it for their own agenda. So I have to "cry loud, spare not" when I see people justify their immoral behavior because somebody made a movie about their choice of lifestyle.
"His character will probably kill alot of people, Does that mean "The Dark Knight" promotes murder? Does "Battlestar Galactica" promote humanities destruction by robot"
"I do find it amazing that people are so put off by that movie, and the social harm it can do, while not having a problem with the routine killings in most other movies"
Bud, I find that completely amazing myself. I agree. I will even go a step further than that. I have a problem with people that are put off by something like that movie, yet have no problem with watching TV shows like "Desperate Housewives", or soaps, or watch movies that have things like people cheating on each other, especially, ESPECIALLY, when it portrays it as being okay and the norm. I don't want to see those movies either. I don't think people should watch any of them. It's not healthy for your marriage or your personal life.
"I'm pretty sure god didn't like killing either. Probably more then gay sex."
I agree with you on this one. But, GOD, and please I respectfully ask you, and anybody else out there, when you post a comment here and use His name, don't disrespect it by not capitalizing His name. thanks. Now, where was I, oh yeah, God doesn't like killing either, and He hates it just as bad, He also hates, a proud look, a lying tongue, A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations (that is where I have a problem with hollywood), feet that are quick to mischief, a false witness, and he that soweth discord among each other. Ps 6:16-19
Anyways, there you have it. I hope I haven't offended you or anyone else. that wasn't my purpose. What was my purpose was to respond to your comment more fully than just a little snippet in the comment section. Really, it is my inability to get my thought out in small bite sized comments. It seems I need lots of room for it, kinda like my rear end. I need lots of room.
