Im Baaaaaack

Yep, I;'m back, may not post every day but will post as often as I can. Tell your friends to come back now, and welcome me back to the DTR blog. All is forgiven.

post passion

I've a lot of time for George Barna - well most of the time. He has done a
report on The Passion of the Christ.
It's very American, of course.

"The nation’s most prolific movie viewers tend to be people under 40 years of age, Asian-Americans and homosexuals. Other groups who watch more movies that the norm included those who cohabit, atheists and agnostics, born again Christians who are neither conservative nor liberal on political matters."

The median number of movies watched by movie-viewers in the previous 12 months was 38 movies".

Another words, many US Christian movie goers are not likely to have a strong opinion on politics - and will spend more hours watching movies than attending church, exercising, reading their bibles or forming an opinion on politics (had to throw the last one in…)

Most of these movies will be seen at home. No wonder there's so many unfit brain-dead Americans if they watch movies for at least a couple of hours a week and don’t exercise - and that’s just the movies, it does not include TV programmes. But the following comment indicates who liked the movie and who thought it was irrelevant.

"As might have been expected, evangelicals were the most enthusiastic about the movie (89% said the movie was excellent) while the lowest ratings came from atheists and agnostics, homosexuals and liberal Democrats. Protestants were more likely than Catholics to give The Passion an “excellent” rating (78% versus 68%, respectively)."

I wonder how many born again Catholic homosexual liberal Democrats there are in the US. Probably not many. Evangelicals appeared to lap the movie up. I thought it was pretty good, but I wouldn’t say it was excellent. I wouldn't see it again.

Nor did we find out how successful the movie was as an evangelical tool That wasn't a question that was asked, but I think we all know the answer anyway.

Of course not.
