Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!

Poll: Most Blasphemous Movie in Theatres


I have just posted a poll on the sidebar, something which I will do more and more in the future (suggestions welcome for topical subjects), which addresses the question as follows:

"What movie in theatres now with a religious theme is the most blasphemous?"

The choices are:

Avatar
The Lovely Bones
Legion
The Book of Eli
Sherlock Holmes
The White Ribbon
Creation


I have seen all of these movies except two - The White Ribbon and Creation. I hope to see both tomorrow or sometime this week. You can change your vote as you see them all, but voting ends on my birthday which is February 15th.

I was inspired to publish this poll because I have seen a theme of religious content in movies in theatres today, and some are good though others are horrible. This opens up the possibility of producing blasphemous content, as so far all of these movies posted have some sort of blasphemous content in my opinion, though some are not completely bad. Therefore, with the Oscars approaching (March 7th), I thought this was the most appropriate subject to produce a poll on.

My personal choice for most blasphemous movie is one I just saw a few hours ago in the theatre. It blows the other one's away by far in blasphemy that I have so far seen. My opinion may change when I see the two movies I have not seen, but for now the most blasphemous movie in theatres today is by far "Legion". It is so irredeemably blasphemous I just don't recommend watching it. But for those who have and those who are curious, this can be one of your choices.

After submitting your answer and would like to give your reason, I recommend you do so in the COMMENTS section on this post. I encourage it.
