From denying God’s existence, to attacking Christians, to attacking the Bible, Hollywood has launched an all-out war on Christianity in America. A new black comedy titled “God Bless America” is Hollywood’s latest effort mocking God and the United States.
Comedian ‘Bobcat’ Goldthwait produced the new film titled “God Bless America” featuring a hopeless man named Frank fed up with an increasingly crude and vapid society. Frank and a teenage girl he meets along the way decide to “off the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society” – and proceed to do so with reckless abandon. Frank poses the question: “Why have a civilization if we are not longer interested in being civilized?”
The trailer makes sure to include a hate-mongering Christian minister attacking Jews and homosexuals among the killer’s many targets.
While Frank’s rage against a shallow society is understandable, “God Bless America,” like Showtime’s hit TV show “Dexter,” celebrates a man who justifies using violence against people he considers evil, claiming “I only want to kill people who deserve to die.”
Unlike “Dexter,” the movie is clearly a black comedy that does not take itself seriously.
However, the movie’s title takes a gratuitous shot at the Christian God, by implying that God has “blessed” America with fools and idiots that need to be eliminated, and at those who revere America’s Judeo-Christian heritage. Goldthwait also depicts Christians in the usual Hollywood manner – by equating them all with the members of the extremist Westboro Baptist Church.
If a director were to make a movie titled “Allah Bless Saudi Arabia,” and had his protagonist indiscriminately shoot hatemongering imams, teenaged girls and people in movie theaters, he would be instantly blacklisted in Hollywood as a hateful bigot. But attacks on Christians garner only praise from the artistic community.
A movie that invokes the name of any religion’s God to justify gratuitous violence, no matter how cynically or “humorously,” goes beyond the pale.
