Main Stream Media will never get it.
As if it needed to be demonstrated again, there is a great article about Sylvester Stallone's latest (and hopefully last) installment in the "Rocky" franchise. The writer just can't help himself but make fun of Chistianity.
In case you haven't followed this--Stallone has apparently renewed his faith in God and is using his movie promotion tour to talk about it. That would be fine, if it weren't 2006 and the media didn't hate everything about religion. I take that back, they hate everything about ONE particular religion--the most popular one in the country.
In this article, we are treated to Joe Garofoli's smart ass comments about how Stallone's violent movies just don't seem to be consistent with Christian values. As if the average San Francisco Chronicle staff writer would know anything about them.
Of course he goes beyond that, suggesting that it is all just a marketing ploy being used by Stallone to sell his movie. After all, he has hired the same guy that helped Mel Gibson market his "Passion of the Christ" a couple years ago.
Face it America--the secular half of this country doesn't understand you, and you don't understand them. There are those who believe in something, and those who believe in nothing. The Nihilists will never understand what it means to believe in something greater than yourself. That is why those same people think "if we just talk to the terrorists, or give them what they want, they will go away." They think that everything boils down to economics. It is the same reason that they MUST assign greedy/cynical reasons to Stallone's apparent religious experience. Nobody could actually be so stupid as to belive in God.
