Offensive review to Christians!   Sunday, March 7, 2010 (8:37 a.m.) 

The number of anti-religion remarkes hidden in these reviews is getting ridiculous. The first paragraph of background was bad enough, but then it went over the top when the review said "Christians and their brainless convictions" and "Imagine where global society could be today if religious buffoonery had never existed". Someone needs to get control of this hateful web site.

But the review was written by a Christian! (ba-dum!)

Anyway:

1) Christian seems to be talking about the Christians in this movie, not all Christians.

2) Why do you assume "religious buffoonery" applies specifically to Christians? All religions have their buffoons.

And why does anyone need to get control of this site? We live in a nation where we enjoy freedom of thought, speech and expression. Christian has the right to write whatever he wants. You have the right to be offended, and the right to write whatever rebuttals you care to. (You also, alternatively, have the right not to expose yourself to such influential documents as film score reviews when you find them offensive, which might be the most sensible right to exercise here.) What you do not have the right to do is try to curtail his rights so as not to offend your sensibilities. Also don't expect too much support for your position given that it's predicated on a selective reading and understanding of his text in the first place.

There's always something somewhere offensive to Christians. Get over yourself.

Although it won't keep me awake at nights, I think we can agree in good faith that there are a good deal of offensive stuff for Christians in this review. It won't keep me awake at nights (although the implication that, as a Christian, I'm a buffoon is a bit disturbing), but you wrote a very interesting review of AGORA without layering it with anti-religious content, why can't Mr Clemmensen do the same?

If you're really a Christian then don't let such things as these affect your faith. I think true Christians, when they read this review, know that, too. I'd like to quote a very wise quote from Dan Brown's Angels & Demons (very unlikely, isn't it?): Religion is flawed only because man is flawed. Christianity may have some flaws, since it's only a religion created by men, but remember: Our Lord, Jesus Christ doesn't.
