Because of this, I get e-mails all the time from stuff I have no interest in, telling me I should be interested. The most recent of which, is a doozy.
In the coming weeks your vote is going to play a crucial role in the battle for the hearts and minds of all Americans -- and it is not your vote in the Presidential election.
On October 3, 2008 -- Hollywood is holding an election -- where your vote is the price of a movie ticket -- and your participation is key to the emerging culture war. Two films will be released on October 3 with two very different messages. The militant pro-atheism documentary Religilous and David Zucker's pro-America, pro-faith comedy An American Carol.
Bill Maher has said: "We are a nation that is unenlightened because of religion. I do believe that -- I think religion stops people from thinking. I think it justifies crazies."
On the contrary, David Zucker set out to make An American Carol a film that celebrates America as a country founded on the principles of faith. If you are one of the so-called "religious" crazies who wants to be heard LOUD and CLEAR by Hollywood -- come out to the theater on October 3rd and buy a ticket for An American Carol.

They both look like movies I wouldn't pay money to go see. Although honestly, I'd rather see An American Carol because it looks like it might have a plot, even if it's not a very good one. Religulous looks like it might actually be beneficial for some of us to watch, simply to be aware of how many of our faiths and others can come across to the world we're called to reflect God in.
