You know, I have to give it to the people who go out to theaters and record these movies for the sole purpose of putting them up on the internet. It takes a certain kind of person to go to every single one of these movies, film them, and then throw them up for the sake of who knows what. Especially since there is a lot of crap out there that are only out there for people who want their beliefs reaffirmed to them and people like me who suffers for an internet community so that they don’t have to. I actually had to look up God’s Not Dead 2 because there was no way I was going to be paying money for that. I had to look it up on my browser, watch it, and then know that; yes, things can in fact get worse after the first movie.
God’s Not Dead 2 is the story of Grace Wesley (Melissa Joan Hart). She is a teacher at a high school and lands herself in some hot water after one of her students asks her a question about Jesus in a history class and she answers it. This, of course, gets blown completely out of proportions and suddenly the evil entity known as the American Civil Liberties Union shows up to sue Grace stating that they will prove once and for all that God is Dead! The rest of the movie is the story of the court room trial.
In Any Sort of World, This Wouldn’t Be a Big Deal
Let’s be honest here. The mere concept of this movie is absolutely ludicrous. Even if we take this situation into the most liberal and secular place on earth, the response will be the same. She would have mentioned Jesus, the board of directors and principal would have told her that you probably shouldn’t do that. They would admit that what she said was, admittedly, a major gray area. That would have been the absolute end of it.
Hell I grew up in a public school and my school’s choir sang Christians songs and did events at various churches. Our teachers mentioned Jesus in a strictly historical context. This is not something that would be a big deal!
It Makes the First Movie Look Good By Comparison
I can’t believe that I would say this, but this movie makes the first movie look great by comparison. I admit, I hated the first movie. I feel like it is a terrible movie that makes Christians look terrible, is a horrific straw man argument, and paints atheists to be horrific individuals who wants to kill all practiced religion which is not the case. But this movie… Man it makes it look progressive.
As much as I disliked it, at least it was a debate between an atheist and a Christian in a philosophy class… Which, by all accounts, is the appropriate forum for that kind of discussion.
However, a court room is most certainly not the place for this sort of argument. It is nothing more than a kangaroo court masquerading as something akin to our justice system. It is a disgrace to the USA and a disgrace to Christians to think that anyone would see this as anything other then hateful propaganda.
Apparently Separation of Church and State is Not a Thing
So here is the thing. Separation of Church and state is a thing. It does not mean that people are going to take religion away from people or tell people that they cannot worship. The whole point of it is that the state will not affect a person’s religious freedoms. Apparently that doesn’t exist in this world. In this world, the government is trying to tell people what they are supposed to say in church, which is not the case and never will be the case. The government doesn’t care what happens in church. Apparently Christians are horrifically victimized by the government who wants to take their faith away. Which is most certainly not the case! This movie is absolutely horrific on just about every conceivable level and it is horrific propaganda to boot!
This movie is terrible. It is so terrible that it makes terrible movies look good by comparison. It is the worst kind of propaganda and attempts to make claims of victimization that do not exist. At this point, I don’t think I can watch another Pure Flix movie ever again. Even if it is for the entertainment of my readers.
Final Score 0/5
