Evil Hobbittses? Evil Eye of Sauron? or Evil Crazy Right Wing Religious Wackos

30 Dec

"The Eye of Sauron". Perhaps this is what the Crazy Right Wing Religious Wackos are in fear of'..........................................or perhaps it's Religious Freedom that has their knickers in a twist.

I was reading Jonathan Turley‘s blog site today and I read an article about the new Peter Jackson film; The Hobbitt. If any of you have read the articles that I post on the Fidlerton Place site you will no doubt be familiar with the fact that I have nothing but praise for the film.

In this case however; it isn’t the film I want to talk about.

It is the reaction to just the trailor of the movie and any other details that may have been leaked.

Not everyones reaction of course. I want to talk about the reactIon of a few very vocal people who have made known that……………………………………………………..

……………………………………   they strongly disapprove of this work of fictIon based on two things.

One is the fact that Sir Peter Jackson who directs the film is a self-proclaimed Athiest. This seems to really set these people to sweating and twitching.

In a nation where people are rumored to be free to practice any Religion they choose or none at all if they so desire; these Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wackos have the balls to scream their hatefilled mumblings and suggest that we should all avoid this film because the Director doesn’t believe in a god.

I’m not totally clear as to whether they demand that Sir Peter believe in and worship their god or if any old god will do.

The following is an except from the article I read this morning. I reprinted it from

http://jonathanturley.org/2011/12/30/satans-little-helper-christian-group-calls-for-boycott-of-movie-hobbit/  

The rest of the piece is worth a read as well if you would like.

**********************************************************************************

Christians For A Moral America really do not want you to see the Hobbit.

Here is the statement from the organization:

invading your local cinema next winter is a new work of evil The Hobbit. The Hobbit follows on from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and seemingly has brought everyone back to “Middle Earth” from the dead. Peter Jackson has once again stepped up as Satan’s Little Helper to direct the two-part film and is once again using witchcraft and wizardry to peddle the film, even though the books had strong Christian undertones (good vs evil; Christians vs Atheists) but Jackson being the self-proclaimed Atheist he is obviously doesn’t want to present this movie in the way it was meant by Tolkien. Let’s vote with our wallets and send a big message to Hollywood and Jackson; Christians will NOT tolerate this blatant Anti-Christian bigotry and Atheist propaganda. Our children’s minds are filled with enough poison these days from the media without us as parents actively doing the same while filling liberal fat cats’ coffers.

The group appears as focused on Jackson being an atheist as the screenplay itself — not to mention “liberal fat cats.”

(it turns out that conservative fat cats are acceptable in the eyes of God).

*******************************************************************************

Now; I don’t want to engage in name calling…………………………………..but I will of course because this type of Authoritarian Theological Garbage is so infuriating because it is so extremely threatening to our freedom.

Anytime the voice of Theocracy rears it’s Hideous head we must step up and cut that Son of a Bitch down before it has a chance to infect people with it’s venom and mindless dogma.   So; stating my impressions of a person who believes everyone should live by their rules whether they agree or not; in language that is clear and concise; is not just name calling. I believe it would qualify as a full blown statement of indignation and Repulsion; would it not?

In the Name of God we torture you and beat you and burn your flesh in the fire. To save you!!! Will this be the next step for these modern day Crazy Right-Wing Religious Wackos?

The idea was for America to be free country. Free doesn’t just mean free from Englands tyrany in 1776. It means free from anyone’s tyrany. Even that of Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wackos.

Now as to the accusaion of Insanity. Are they crazy? Well anyone who tells me that the Spirit of God enters their body and makes them speak in tounges, roll around the floor, prophesy, or cast out sickness; is not crazy. They are possessed. But not by God. Not his style since way back in the days of the Apostles. The Bible even says that such things would stop. it’s in black and white. You could find it yourself if you bothered to read the Bible instead of taking the word of a Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wacko as to it’s meaning and intent. In fact i find it rather insulting that anyone would expect me or ask me to do that.

I would also reccomend That anyone who believes in or practices such spiritual interactions; take a long hard look at the ceremonies and rituals practiced by the Voodoo community of the deep south and Carribean islands. When you can tell me that those people are acting in union with the spirit of God (my God anyway); then i will consider discussing this subject again.

i am a reasonable, intelligent person. i read. So; i am able to understand much more of the Bible than a  Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wacko who makes up his own “Truth” using the Bible as a loose refence for story structure ; in order to create a religious frenzy and power play. I have read the Bible, and that’s how i know these Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wackos are full of Shit and that none of the Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wacko crap that these people are pushing has even a modicum of common sense to it or truth; mush less does it respect the rights of the American people to watch, hear, support, believe, and say any Damned thing they want to whether it makes us the target of Crazy, Right-Wing Religious Wackos or not.

The idea that any group; religious or not should try to inflict their repressive, didactic religion on the rest of America is Unconstitutitonal at best.

It is; at worst; one of the most dangerous threats to our freedom as a people.

It comes when people; like these Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wackos you so energetically defend begin to treat their Religion as Government and their Government as a Religion.

*******************************************************************************

Just as an asIde to thIs; I loved the books and the movIes. I thought the movIes were near perfect In theIr recretIon of the books; as close as one can and stIll produce a fIlm and not a readIng of the book. I have seen many movIes where the story and characters were so butchered that It hardly resembled the book so Hats Off to SIr Peter Jackson for hIs latest offerIng; “The HobbItt”; whIch BTW the Crazy,RIght-WIng RelIgIous Wackos Incorrectly IdentIfIed as a Sequel to the “Lord of the RIngs” trIlogy In whIch all the old dead characters mIraculously come back to lIfe.

In fact “The HobbItt ” Is a Prequel and the story takes place years before the begInnIng of the quest to destroy the rIng In the trIlogy. Only three of the charaters In “The HobbItt” are also In the trIlogy and none of them dIe untIl the end of the trIlogy; as I say; many years after the story of “The HobbItt” ends when one of them; falls Into the”Cracks of Doom” whIch are huge fIssures surroundIng a Volcano. Anyway; no death. No characters mIraculously comIng to lIfe.

The only character In the entIre story IncludIng all four books; who seemIngly comes back from the dead Is the WIazrd Gandalf. He falls Into a sImIlar fIssue whIle fIghtIng an ImpressIvely powerful creature. The book however never says that he dIed. Only that everyone assumed so. The book tells the story of hIs fallIng and defeatIng the creature and then beIng transformed from Gandalf the Gray; to Gandalf the WhIte thus offIcIally beIng gIven the tItle and authorIty of the WIzard who betrayed them and went over to servIng the Dark Lord, Sauron. HIs name was Saruman the WhIte. It never says who makes that descIsIon only that It Is made. My ImpressIon was always that there was somewhere a CouncIl of WIzards or some other governIng body dIrectIng the work of the wIzards to defeat the Dark Lord In hIs bId for domInIon of MIddleEarth. ThIs Is well Into the trIlogy however so does not apply to “The HobbItt” at all.

I’m not surprIzed that thIs group made such an elementary error. I’m sure that none of them bothered to vIew the fIlm before formIng a judgement  about It; whIch Is not to say that they would lIke It any better If they dId view it but it seems to me that if you are going to broadcast a vitriol filled, full damnation of something; you might what to know what the hell it is your damning Huh?

Of course; they have the same right as anyone else to state their opinion but when the opinion is so obviously a political statement couched in the robe of a religious complaint and is stated as a belief that we all should comply or like it was a warning that a second flood like that in Noah’s day was coming tomorrow it tends to offend those of us who are still thinking for ourselves and haven’t given ourselves over to blind obedience to another human being;  Crazy,Right-Wing Religious Wacko or not.

Or maybe they could what any other “Religious Organization”in America will do. Quietly pass the lies about the movie as well as their opinion to their parishoners and members and allow everyone else to see the movie without having to listen to the uneducated ranting of men who are equivilent in attitutde and temperment to the Orthodox Islamic Mullahs and Talliban Extremists they condemn everyday. Or do they?

    Turkey should welcome their disapproval- it almost guarantees more people seeing the movie, not to mention the free publicity.

    We were discussing that very thing today. Any publicity is good publicity for a movie. The teenagers will be storming the theaters when it comes out if they keep screaming about how horrible it is.
    I hope.

    I found your site after reading your very excellent comment on the article “Human Sacrifice in India Claims Seven-Year-Old victim”.

    I read the Bible, used to know it pretty good. Where does it say that miracles would decrease in the latter days? Just curious, not arguing with you. The fanatics and the ignorant (same thing) give Yahushua Ha Mashiacha and His faithful followers a very bad name. Who in their right mind shows up at a funeral to harass someone for being dead and gay? Apparently the same people who boycott The Lord of the Rings.

      Sorry it took so long to get back to you i wanted to show you the reference for the ending of miraculous gifts. I also wanted to say that I agree with you. America offers freedom of speech but perhaps it should come with a class in good taste.

      Anyway; here is the scriptural reference and text along with my annotation just for kicks though you probably will find them redundant.

      I have gone back a few verses to provide context. As you can see here the Apostle Paul is discussing the distribution of gifts among the early christians’ how some had one and some another but how each was of value yet in verse 31 he tells them to strive for the greater gifts and offers to show the way.
      1 Corinthians 12 (American Standard Version)

      27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and severally members thereof.

      28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, divers kinds of tongues.

      29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

      30 have all gifts of healings? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

      31 But desire earnestly the greater gifts. And moreover a most excellent way show I unto you.

      Here in chapter 13 he proceeds to do this. he explains that the greatest gift is Love. That if he has all the other gifts of prophesy and tounges etc. and yet does not have Love he has nothing. In verse 8 Paul explains why Love should be so earnestly sought. And then he goes on to explain that the earlier gifts were as babyfood but the gift of love would bring understanding beyong the hazy image available to those early ones.

      1 Corinthians 13 (American Standard Version)

      1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.

      2 And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

      3 And if I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing.

      4 Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

      5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not provoked, taketh not account of evil;

      6 rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth;

      7 beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

      8 Love never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall be done away; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall be done away.

      9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part;

      10 but when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away.

      11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child: now that I am become a man, I have put away childish things.

      12 For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known.

      13 But now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.

        No problem, don’t worry about it.

        That’s a nice run of Scripture that I’m very familiar with but it says nothing of miracles ceasing in the context I believe we were talking about. Do you know anything about the codex that was used for the American Standard Bible? Well over 90% of the new Bibles (we’re talking in the last 130 years) are based on the “work” of Wescott and Hort (The minority text).
