Will Farrell, Madonna Join Mockery of Christ Band

I thought the DaVinci Code might be enough mockery from Hollywood for 2006.

Instead, Will Farrell and Madonna are joining the mockery of Jesus Christ band.

Will Farrell’s new movie, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobbyis a racist, bigoted work that ridicules the Bible Belt, Southern white men, Christianity, Jesus Christ, the family, and American masculinity.

TALLADEGA NIGHTS is one of the most blasphemous, politically correct major movies ever released by a major Hollywood studio. Besides ridiculing Southern white men, the filmmakers sneeringly deride Southern Christians who say prayers to Jesus before dinner. The Southern Christians come off as ignorant buffoons, and the figure of Jesus is a symbol ripe for condescending mockery.

A recent article in the Los Angeles Times noted that both Will Farrell and his writing partner, Adam McKay, the director of this movie, are pretty radical liberals who are angry at the Democratic Party for not being even more antagonistic toward its rivals in the Republican Party. Apparently, that also includes conservative evangelical Christians in the South who support conservative Republicans. To many such secular liberals, bigoted attacks on blacks, women, Latinos, and other so-called minorities are evil, but bigoted attacks on white Southern males, especially Christian ones, are fair game.

Ths politically correct movie not only celebrates the ridicule of white Southern Christian males, it also ridicules Christianity’s belief in moral absolutes. Apparently, Will Farrell, who co-wrote the movie, is saying that anyone who believes in such moral absolutes, such as the biblical admonitions against fornication and homosexuality, or the moral superiority of Christianity, is an idiot. No small wonder, then, that TALLADEGA NIGHTS is not only full of ridicule, but also full of sexual references and foul language.

As reprehensible as they are, Mel Gibson’s comments were said in private, during a drunken confrontation with a police officer. TALLADEGA NIGHTS, however, is a public work that will be shown in theaters throughout the United States and the whole world, to millions of moviegoers.

Mel Gibson can always claim that it was the booze talking through him the other night. The question arises, however, what is Will Farrell and Hollywood’s excuse for making and distributing this awful Christophobic movie? And, does anybody in Hollywood care?

To kick off her first world tour in four years, Madonna put on a crown of thorns, hung herself from a cross, and compared President Bush to Osama bin Laden.

The Material Girl sang her ballad “Live to Tell” while suspended from an enormous mirrored cross as, behind her, video screens showed images of Third World poverty and grim stats like the 12 million children orphaned by AIDS in Africa. Later, during new song “I Love New York,” she deviated from the script to make a crude reference to Bush and oral sex.

Via BBC:

Madonna has defended a controversial mock crucifixion in her stage show, saying it is part of an appeal to the audience to donate to Aids charities.

“I don’t think Jesus would be mad at me and the message I’m trying to send,” she told the New York Daily News.

A Church of England statement asked why Madonna felt “the need to promote herself by offending so many people”.

“Jesus taught that we should love thy neighbour,” Madonna told the newspaper.

Jesus also said to not mock the Lord your God. But then again, you would know that if He was your God.
