Used to be, no one got worked up about religious films

April 5, 2014
The Marietta Times

One can almost hear the approaching hoof-beats of the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" when longtime religious rivals suddenly start agreeing. Such a miraculous event happened last week when both evangelical Christians and fundamentalists Moslems agreed that they don't really care for the new Russell Crowe film, "Noah." Islamists object because the Quran forbids any visual depiction of prophets like Noah, and Christians say that the movie "misrepresents" the Old Testament account of the Flood in Genesis (what, no dinosaurs?). A local pastor (whose denunciation of the film appeared in the March 31 Marietta Times) called it "something between 'The Twilight Zone' and 'Transformers.'" and that it is yet another "attack upon religion" by the "Godless forces of Hollywood liberalism."
