You may not agree, but I never saw it as openly attacking non-Christians or insulting them as people.
:shock:

I think with these totally arbitrary statements you actually make it worse.
Ken_Oh is absolutely right: That's really offensive.
Indeed and very intolerant aswell. Intolerant as in selfish

It's not an offense on non-Christians as much as it is an attack on reason.

I don't want to get into an argument about this in a thread that's supposed to be about things we like. I'm just saying I think the message is bogus.

Let's try to keep this conversation in the range of movie-plot and not a conversation about religion. Religion always starts big trouble on every forum you go to.. I think that was kind of why there's none allowed in wesnoth.

Hum, yeah, oooookkkkaaayyy… I'd be tempted to say that some of the people on that particular forum are idiots, but that would be an insult to idiots…

xD, well it changed since the time I looked at it. It was supposed to be the one that lead to this exact forum. But now I think it's two?

Sorry about that, I didn't realise it was against the rules. (But it was off-topic anyway.) It's an important issue to me, and I wanted to reply, but I should have PMed them and not replied here. :)

I really don't see how that's selfish, but if you want to continue the argument, feel free to PM me.

I don't think that it's against the rules in an off-topic forum, but yeah, that could give you an idea to start a post about religion if that's what you feel you need to do.

I was simply making notes about the movie, as this is a movie thread. We've had religion/anti-religion threads before, so, feel free to make one (unless mods step in to say otherwise), but I'm not interested in any meta-discussion.

This should not be made into a religion thread, as that is nowhere near the original purpose. While I will not stop anyone from discussing it elsewhere, note that such threads are never actually discussions, and will most likely end in a lock anyways, so you can save yourselves time if you so wish.

No, everyone can continue to talk about their favorite movies at the moment as much as they please.

No, I meant the religion topic closed. I wouldn't try to usurp your authority. :D

To move the topic along...

I'll say Silverado. I love a good western, and this one is head and shoulders above most of the stuff I watch.

Whenever anyone asks me this question, I think really hard, but cannot deny the truth...

SHREK!

And Shrek 2 is equally epic. Jennifer Saunders is awesome.

Matrix Trilogy (absolutely dripping with action and style).
LOTR series (books were awesome too).
Narnia was ok... Prince Caspian was the better of the two out (read the books too. they are good).
Flywheel was pretty good.
Never seen Fireproof, heard it was good.
Facing The Giants was very good.
I want to check out Equillibrium, though.(I cannot spell it, for the life of me).

Nah, you ain't a child in any way. I still consider Shrek 1 & 3 to be epic and extremely funny, so why not? XD
Madagascar makes a good opponent too... The first one, not the horrible sequel.
