Currently playing at both movie theaters in Winchester, The Alamo and the AMC Apple Blossom Mall, is a movie entitled, “The Unholy.”

This movie is a blasphemous depiction of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, as a Satanic figure. It is a mockery of all Christian belief that

 Mary was singularly chosen by God to be the mother of His son who became a man in the person of Jesus. And to add insult to injury, the movie was featured during Holy Week, the holiest week in all of Christianity when Christians around the world commemorate the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Why is it that Christianity always seems to be the religion that can be mocked and denigrated without any repercussions? Call the movie theaters and let them know that this movie is an insult and mockery to the 31% of the world’s population that call themselves Christian.

I haven't seen the movie, and don't intend to, so take this with a grain of salt. But from the reviews I've read, It seems the movie isn't "anti-Christian" at all. It could instead be seen as a warning about false prophets, charlatans, devils in disguise, and how they can mislead true believers--with terrifying consequences. Just read the news; there are devils in disguise all over, and plenty of devout, but desperate and gullible, believers.

Still waiting for Hollywood to produce the same type movie depicting Islam in a negative light....

@wwriver - The Prog-Left and Islam... two great ideologies that just go better together! [lol]

Unfortunately, Mr. Brown, your far right conservative Christians do not agree. I see a man who is a sociopath, a narcissist, a pathological liar, a racist and bigot, and a sexual predator. A religious conservative and die hard pro lifer (or birther) that I know thinks Trump is a “great man.”

Where all of us sin and fall far short of perfection, I wouldn’t look to Trump to represent Christianity.

supporting tRump is blasphemous and a mockery to true Christianity

Several decades ago when my husband was assigned to a military post near a small town, the good ladies of the local Catholic Church took it upon themselves to march and protest outside of an adult store in the town. They certainly were within their rights to do this. The store thrived. All the press coverage encouraged more customers. Eventually, the ladies of the church lost interest in the adult store and the store closed sometime after that.

The moral of this story is: criticism of religion is allowed by law. The hysteria of the letter writer just draws more attention to the movie. What should Christians do? Hold your head up and live the life of the Gospels. The movie will go away.

Many of the reviews say it is not a good movie. Now THAT is a good reason not to go see it.

Blasphemy is no longer a crime : legally or socially.

Everyone has a right to their own opinions about religions. Free speech guarantees that. If you don’t like the movie, don’t go see it. Religion is not protected from criticism or even mockery. THis is America. Don’t be a Christian snowflake.

@slowe - Why is the Left blind to their own hypocrisy EVERY SINGLE TIME? I actually agree with you on this. Too bad you never apply this "principle" when the speech/expression/thought is something you disagree with. Cancel culture hypocrisy on full display here... [rolleyes]

slowe

Doc, I don't see the hypocrisy you refer to here. Please be specific or give examples. Thanks. How is this cancel culture? You don't make any sense to me.
