No meat at ‘Noah’ party
New York Post, by Richard Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/29/2014 7:13:57 AM

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

Oh baloney. Crowe is no more vegan than I am. It´s just the ´in´ thing to be now, like suddenly everyone is gay.

From observing Hollywood, their Bible is always more popular if they cut out the stuff they don´t like and rearrange it to suit particular biases.

If you´re interested in the story, Adam and Eve were tossed out of Eden and told they´d have to eat meat and wear animal skins. Providing and eating meat followed that event and was practiced later, during the time of Noah.

IMO, Vocal Vegans are getting as obnoxious as the SSM crowd.

The writer is claiming that Noah was a vegetarian - which is not true. Cain - the first murderer- was a vegetarian.

In the Biblical account it specifically says that Noah took on board animals approved for eating.

I´ll bet there were plenty of ´hydraulic´ sandwiches (booze) to be had.
This is some new liberal ´hogwash´ with all their love affair with veggies and not eating anything with a face on it.
Must have been one boring party. Music must have been provided by the ´Sprockets´.

Unfortunately, we went to the movie yesterday. It was probably the worst movie we´ve ever seen. Terrible acting, terrible special effects, terrible script. Hopefully it will be the bomb that it should be.

Although he has some talent, if you watch interviews with Aronofsky, he´s kind of a jerk. As in, Matt Damon dic*ishness.

Talks a lot on an intellectual level, but really not that smart, more smug. Dude, it´s simple. You don´t mention God. Your movie is invalid. Noah didn´t build an ark because he had hallucinations, or because he loved Mother Earth. God told him to build it. Simple as that. Think about how simply great that story is. Man is able to do the impossible, because he has God behind him. What a metaphor for how to live your life. And completely missed.

I agree with others. Vegans are truly obnoxious. I get that someone can get to the point that they don´t want to eat meat. But dairy, fish, and all the rest?

Oh, and #1, could not agree more. Remember in the glam 70s, spilling into the 80s the "in" thing was to be androgynous. Then it was gay. Then it was bi. Now it´s gay again, joined by those who have "gender identity issues". And don´t forget how hip it is to be an atheist, and a 99%er, and so on.

If all these people disintegrated tomorrow, would there be a downside?

Yet again the liberal elites take extreme liberties with their "interpretation" of Scripture.

After Noah and his family left the ark, he immediately built an Altar to God and offered animal and fowl sacrifices! They were allowed to eat the meat offered to God. Remember, the killing of an innocent lamb, bull, dove, etc. while the person offering the sacfrice had his hand on it, was the foreshadow of a Savior who would come to take away the sins of all mankind. In other words, they were saved "on credit" in the Old Testament. Christianity is not a "modern religion", it is a faith from the Garden of Eden that represents a personal relationship with God the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ, by means of the power of the Holy Spirit.

My prediciton is that this "epic" film by this arrogant anti-Christ Director will go down as one of the biggest Hollyweird flops of all time.

#1 -- The third sentence in this story isn´t as well written as it should be. What Mr. Johnson means by "Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic" is that Noah (as played by Crowe) was a vegetarian. Which, of course, is a crock of hummus.

Would that someone might put an effort equivalent to Aronofsky´s into producing and writing and directing a visually dazzling and absorbing epic film that didn´t contort and distort Biblical truth.

Meanwhile, if I were ever to turn "vegan," it wouldn´t be because I love cows -- it would be because I hate plants.

It´s true before the flood people were vegetarians, but i doubt they were vegans. I also doubt Noah would have understood the term nor could he have lived without animal products. But facts dont matter to Hollywood.

I am very surprised and dismayed by all the hostility toward vegetarians and vegans. They are only a small part of the population and they hardly impinge on the carnivore world at all. In most restaurants, the only "vegetarian" entree is a heaping bowl of pasta, which is not a healthy meal for anybody. Should be pretty easy for you to just ignore vegetarians and vegans.

My husband and I have been vegetarian for more than 20 years, simply because we have had some wonderful pets and can´t see that killing a pig or cow is any different than killing our dog or cat. We do not need the meat and we don´t want to cause suffering. We never tell anyone else what to do, and we often eat out with friends who eat meat and fish, and certainly do not lecture them. It´s like religion. Shut up about your beliefs and let other people make their own choices.

Just as an aside, the movie is rated PG-13, but Raymond Arroyo on EWTN said you should keep the kids at home, regardless of its rating.

Heard a replay of his interview with movie´s director and Russell Crowe, and listened to clips from the movie, and Arroyo tried to be very objective, but he is trained in acting so he was looking at the movie thru the eyes of an actor, but at the end, he just said to go if you choose, but keep the kids at home.

A Bible movie that the kids shouldn´t see has got to be pretty pathetic.

I am always amazed at people who are offended by someone else´s views on events that occurred before written history in a book with many versions (personal favorite is King James) which almost no one reads in the orginal language of the scrolls, certain of which were rejected. Also, not a vegetarian but I love vegetarian cooking. Also, I believe in Noah´s time it was forbidden to speak the name of god. Broader views only reaffirm relmy belief in the wonder.

I haven´t seen the movie, and I probably won´t since I never pay to go see the trash they produce in Hollywood anymore.

As far as vegan versus meat eating, that is a personal choice. Hollywood is in the propaganda business in todays world and everything in their universe is twisted and subnormal.

Not content with rewriting American history, now Hollywood and its Lefties want to rewrite the Bible?

Roma Downey et al claim to be Christians. You don´t so obviously change the Bible´s actual story to play to the New(er) Age EcoNazis and still claim it´s "biblical". Whatever "bible" they were using to make this monster, it wasn´t the real one.

If the Lord didn’t want us to eat animals, He wouldn’t have made them out of meat.

#15, I am a meat eater and I could dine out with you. You express your preferences and stated that you do not proselytize to others about them. Good for you. In defense of #2, his words were “vocal vegans” not “all vegans”. Similar to all Christians being lumped into a group based on the Jehovah Witnesses that won’t leave your doorstep. Unfortunately, personal attacks can ruin a dialog.

We have vegan friends that will provide a meat dish for me when we are invited to dinner at their house, and we return the courtesy when we host them by including a vegan entrée. My ex-son-in-law however was a vocal vegan that would serve only items on his menu, in return we would make sure we served meat sauce for the pasta and bacon bits in the salads. After awhile he caught on.

I watched Harry Potter yesterday and it was about magic and wizards. I’ve seen “Star Wars” which had sci-fi space travel. I enjoy “Doctor Who” which is about time travel. I watched “Wanted: Dead or Alive” which had horses and cowboys. Those forms of entertainment deliver what they claimed and I got what I expected.

Why in the world would I want to see “Noah” which doesn’t tell the Biblical story? I might as well watch the History Channel, which no longer has programs about history.

Conservatives who happen to share a trait or two with the most rabidly anticonservative elements of our society are in an unenviable position.

It’s not the vegetarianism per se (although there are legitimate questions about whether a meatless diet provides all of the vitamins, especially vitamin B-12, that people need, particularly for healthy brain function). Rather, it’s the rest of the attitudinal baggage, which is so pervasive that vegetarianism is now a quacking sound that suggests the presence of a duck with other dubious articles of faith, including Gaiaism, warmism, and statism, bolstered by New Agey smugness and accompanied by hectoring and lecturing – territory into which poster #15 (“we never tell anyone else what to do,” “just ignore vegetarians and vegans,” and ”shut up about your beliefs”) makes more than a small incursion with “a heaping bowl of pasta, which is not a healthy meal for anybody.”

Chattanooga was in that position in February of this year with the United Auto Workers (UAW).

The US government has been pushing the idea of home solar panels for quite a while now, giving the industry a significant, additional nudge when the current federal subsidy program was generously expanded in 2008. The idea behind this was that if homeowners wanted to save some money on their energy bill by using solar power, they could receive a 30% subsidy to help cover the costs. Sounds pretty sweet, eh? Well, when the government is giving away taxpayer cash, plenty of people will line up to get it… and it’s not always those who were intended to benefit. This

WASHINGTON -- Welcome to Barack Obama´s split-screen presidency. On one side: a confident Obama making campaign-style stops around the country and ridiculing his political opponents to the delight of cheering supporters. On the other side: an increasingly unpopular president hobbled by gridlock on Capitol Hill and a steady stream of vexing foreign policy crises. Obama has long sought refuge outside of Washington when his frustrations with the nation´s capital reach a boiling point. But his ability to rally public support in a way that results in progress for his legislative agenda has perhaps never been weaker than it is as he nears

Journalists have been fuming for years over the administration’s failure to live up to President Obama’s promises of transparent government. But it’s even worse than you thought. The focus, naturally, has been on the White House, where reporters press for scraps of information in the briefing room and news photographers are sometimes barred from events, supplanted by official photogs whose work amounts to propaganda. But it turns out the problem is even more insidious where the real day-to-day business of government gets done, in federal departments and agencies. In an unusual alliance, a number of journalism organizations have banded together to denounce what they

The anti-missile defense system has been responsible for intercepting militant rockets targeted at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel´s two largest cities. As seen in video footage taken by ABC News, the Iron Dome intercepts missiles mid-air in a matter of seconds. First, the system identifies incoming missiles and then determines whether their range and direction threatens a highly populated area, like a city.

Lives at the eatery are infamously long, and have been known to stretch as long as three hours wait.But Mr Obama did no waiting today, as he showed up at the restaurant, shook a few hands and made his way straight to the register to order more than $300 worth of meat. ´I know this is a long line. I feel real bad, but – I’m gonna

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bare right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were doing tapas at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “Ma’am, you rock,” I wanted to tell her, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chef Sam Kass, and was

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process. “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. “I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) yesterday described herself as a “lioness” when it comes to protecting children. She also called not only for the U.S. government to process minors arriving illegally from Central America on a “case-by-case basis" but for the government to “treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids.” “Quite frankly, I would rather they treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, claiming that sending these children back to their home countries would be like “sending them back into a

SAN DIEGO - The family that drew national attention when they were rescued at sea off their sailboat, Rebel Heart, in April is finally setting the record straight. Charlotte and Eric Kaufman and their two daughters were about 1,000 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez when 1-year old Lyra became sick. That was when their adventure of a lifetime turned into a nightmare. It began with a fever, then a rash and then Lyra became lethargic. That was when the couple used their satellite cell phone to call a doctor. He advised them to begin treating Lyra

Angry Democrats in Nebraska said the Obama Outhouse float in the 4th of July parade may have been racist. So now Eric Holder is looking into it. Omaha.com reported: The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade. The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The Odd Fellows organized the parade. One of the floats included a zombie-like mannequin standing near

Unlike many of his Republican colleagues, Karl Rove advocated Thursday for bipartisan compromise on immigration. “Republicans have to look at this as an opportunity that they have to work,” the Republican strategist said on the Fox News program “Happening Now.” “It’s an opportunity to get some things done to help secure the border.” He suggested that in working with President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion request for additional funds to deal with the current immigration crisis, Republicans could make policy gains like increasing the amount of border patrols. “They ought to sit down in good faith,” he said of Republicans and the

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued
