Someone gave me a copy of "Tropic Thunder" to view over this past weekend. First off I asked him "TWICE"-"do people in this movie say God's name in vain?" His reply was clearly "no." Oh sure it had a bunch of cussing, but I am use to that after having been raised by a couple of sailors on shore leave. I am disappointed in my video lenders inability to recognize sin , even apparently when it slaps him in the face - many times.
I am also disappointed in you boys that made this movie. Every other sentence was either "God's" name in vain or "Christs" . I could only watch about 7 minutes of it, and even with that much it made me ashamed of myself . I cringed every time it was said, I kept thinking okay in a minute I will see that this movie is really great just like everyone had said it was , but it never happened.
I am worried, and anxious, about the future of a people (audience) that are willing to sit through this gory, blasphemous , profane movie. It was also strange how disrespectful they were towards human flesh. Even though it was fake. Did you know that the Jewish people have such a profound respect for the bodies of the dead that when ever there is some sort of a bombing or a tragedy their people are required to find all of the pieces of the person before burial?
While you people watch this stuff , and while still others like you are producing, and manufacturing this crap , Rome burns, and your fueling the fires. ALL OF YOU. Millions of you people are blazing your way to hell laughing all of the way .
Poor "Christ" all the while standing there humiliated , yet waiting to save you.
*On one other hand, Jewish law prohibits desecration of a dead body (nivul hamet). A dead person's body, since it once housed the holy soul, is to be treated with the utmost respect. Every part of the body must be buried -- which is why you see the heart-wrenching images of religious Jews dutifully going around after a terrorist bombing, scraping up pieces of flesh and blood for burial.
