David, you need to write more. Between this kind of crossed with game reviews, I enjoy it greatly.
I too have often dreaded seeing Christians protrayed as one-track minded simpletons. Teetotalling, anti-fun, starchy phonies with deep skeletons in the closet. I know Hollywood likes conflict in people, but this is just horribly over-done, cliche'd and just plain silly. If they made "Lair Lair" with a lawyer that could tell no lie and actually have a heart of gold, why can't they do the same with an honest Christian? It's not as if we're all on a crusade to kill the gays, shut down dance halls and bring back black and white television. Some of us are actually cool to hang out with. We have gay friends, we know they're going to hell, but we can still love them. We can still show compassion.


Whassup, Super Pope.

Man, am I GLAD to see your site is still up. I tried to access almost a month ago and the browser said the page could not be found.

I tell you, my heart just dropped about twenty feet right there. You're one of the few bloggers I greatly respect.

I myself am a Christian (although, I'm a bit more liberal when it comes to a few things, such as swearing - but that explanation will have to wait another day). And, like yourself, I have had a great many beefs with Hollywood's potrayel of Christianity for a long time.

I don't consider myself a cool guy by any stretch of the imagination, but I know I'm nothing like those idiotic fuckers they potray out there on TV and in the movies.

I can't BEGIN to describe how utterly insane it drives me to see us (and God for that matter) disgraced day after day after day. Just about every show seems only to exist to eviscerate the image of God and the Church nowadays.

Yes, I'll concede, many of us really ARE as superficial and judgemental and moronic as the stereotypes convey. Of course, there are fools and hypocrites in EVERY crowd. But the media NEVER conveys Chistianity in a good light. EVER!! Whenever a Xian character appears, I just know that he/she's gonna be the bad guy or some stupid fool who knows nothing about the word "joy" or "pleasure" or even "sex". And if he IS cool, he always turns out to be the villain!

I AM SICK OF IT!!!!! Dude, I don't know how in the world you manage to be so calm, cool and collected to write such a composed articulate article. Sometimes, when I think of it, I am overcome by an irresistable urge to smash shit up.

Anyhow, I'm glad you're still here because God knows we need guys like you. Keep rockin'!

It's almost worthless to even watch anything that doesn't proclaim itself metaphorical fiction (read: science fiction) in the current day and age. I'm down to cartoons and friday night aliens now, casting aside the rest as made-for-television domestic violence. It's not just a Christian issue, but how television has shaped the perception of society to such a radical degree while supporting stereotypes just to draw viewers. Like hate speech, apathy and ignorance have an audience that needs the emotional support ideaology like that offers. Something to rail about, to put the world in the background and look away from their own frustration at the static nature of real life.

You should come down to the coffee shop some time and hang out. Or jump on a forum. Some variety (family oriented, community oriented) would be a great break from my usual frustrated observations on media, business, and politics.


It's all very silly, if you ask me. The fact that people buy into that kind of image fed to them by their tvs is proof enough that people are pretty gullible--certainly AS gullible and closed-minded as they pass Christians off to be. And oddly, those who criticize us act like they won't let us change. Like, they call us hypocritical, and if we're not, then we must not be true Christians and we're living a lie. It boggles the mind.

While yeah, a good deal of the more vocal Christians are judgmental and closed-minded, that's only because they're the vocal ones. The cool Christians are comfortable with their religious standings, and therefore can allow others the freedom to run their own lives. Of course, there are exceptions both ways, but that's the general thing I've found.

I'm glad that other people are speaking out. I've ranted about it so much in the past that I burned myself out. It's good to see others likeminded individuals who are still driven to speak their minds.

Man, this is smartly written. Having not watched TV in the last 6 years (can't take it...way too stupid...), this essay speaks EXACTLY to the sort of general dumbness society has fallen into when being told what to think. Hollywood is full of paper-thin ploys and see through agendas. Can't say I'm a church going man, but I do believe in common sense and not leading people by the nose, and further more, Hollywood rarely even bothers to research basic history (they are busy re-writting that as fast as possible), so why should they bother getting anything else right that people hold dear to them as an important aspect to living. Stick around, bud...it'll get worse! You remain one of the "sharpest knives in the drawer" as far as I'm concerned. You and I know about this one: maybe you should have a topic on the hypocricy of art. Or maybe you already have covered that one.

Favorite Books

  • Ravi Zacharias: Can Man Live Without God?

    Ravi Zacharias: Can Man Live Without God?
    An amazing book that makes the case for God not by citing the Bible or great theologians, but by analyzing the philosophies of famous atheists and showing their flaws.

  • C. S. Lewis: Mere Christianity

    C. S. Lewis: Mere Christianity
    C.S. Lewis was an atheist for much of his life. Appropriately, this book makes the case for the existance of God first and Christianity second with carefully outlined and surprisingly simple reasoning. I consider this required reading for anyone searching for meaning.

  • C. S. Lewis: Space Trilogy

    C. S. Lewis: Space Trilogy
    Religious Sci-Fi Fantasy: A very tiny genre. In "Out of the Silent Planet", "Perelandra", and "That Hiddeous Strength", C.S. Lewis manages to tackle difficult theological questions as we follow Dr. Ransom in his adventures on Mars, Venus, and back on Earth. My favorite science fiction series by far.
