Darren Aronofsky’s Noah
Red State, by Eric Erickson

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 3/31/2014 8:42:42 AM

I don’t get all the claims of radical environmentalism in Noah. I saw it last night. I did not draw out of it the environmentalism. In the movie, Noah took the position that all mankind had corrupted the earth with sin and God intended to wipe them all out. Noah presumed God would wipe him and his family out too once all the animals were saved. Sure, Noah was a vegetarian and the bad guys are meat eaters who do to the earth what Saruman did, but I don’t really see the whacked out radical environmentalism. It’s more thematic of

Unfortunately, I went to the movie opening day. It is as ridiculous and stupid as this article says, in addition to the worst acting, worst script, and worst special effects.

Don´t let the opening paragraph dissuade you from reading the article. Erickson shreds the movie to bits.

At mass yesterday our priest panned the movie too. He had gone to see it the evening before. He didn´t get into all of the enviro wackiness, he simply said, "Don´t waste your money. It portrays Noah as an evil man and we know that God chose Noah because he had proved himself to be a righteous man".

Howzabout "The Creator" killing everything on the planet because that one bad dude ate the last of that lizard species?

Liberal logic has a "Creator" killing his entire creation to get rid of some bad people who were being mean to animals. If God can create anything, and can destroy anything, likewise, he can selectively punish those who oppose him.

I don´t have to pay into the coffers of an already bankrupt (morally and financially) Hollywood to know this is a 99% special effects stinkburger of epic proportions.

I am certain I enjoyed the couple of minutes it took to read this witty article a great deal more than I would the movie. Pass!

I also passed on Avatar. Still have not seen it, despite the fact that every other addicted movie fan I meet, and I am one, always looks at me as if I have two heads for saying so.

I saw it. Loved it. And I´m a Christian. Thought it had some poignant parts. The watchers as mud and rock creatures was explained. And Noah as a man who´s interpretation of God´s commands was at times convoluted only reminded me of how fallible as men we are. Overall I would say go see it.

FTA: ´´I don’t get all the claims of radical environmentalism in Noah. I saw it last night. I did not draw out of it the environmentalism. In the movie, Noah took the position that all mankind had corrupted the earth...´´

Maybe I missed the joke here, but doesn´t Eric see the irony in his statement? Maybe THE core belief of the environmental religion is that mankind is evil and a cancer on the Earth.

The movie was stupid. You are manipulated into hating Noah - and it works. If you want to see a good movie, go see Divergent. You won´t feel like you wasted your money or want your time back.

(I had concluded that it wasn´t going to be Biblical....and it wasn´t. The only thing this had to do with the Bible was the sharing of names of the characters.) I wouldn´t pay to see it again, wouldn´t buy the dvd, wouldn´t pay to rent it from redbox, wouldn´t subscribe to premium channels to see it. If it came on television, I wouldn´t dvr it. This movie is that stupid. Not bad, but stupid.

So Shem built a second ark?

Reminds me...
In Rush Revere and The Brave Pilgrims...
it is noted that there was a second ship which they called the Speedwell...
but it didn´t...
so they used the Mayflower movers instead.
Shows the value of free enterprise and competition.

So when, in this movie, Shem sez... "Shiver me timbers!" ...

I realized...

I will wait for the Rush Limbaugh version...

"Rush Revere and the Aquatic-Challenged Animal Species"

And... that could be a while.

The White House pushed back against a Republican subpoena for a top presidential adviser to testify this week, saying that summoning David Simas to Capitol Hill raised significant concerns about separation of powers. White House counsel W. Neil Eggleston wrote in a letter Monday to House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) that he would direct his staff to provide a briefing Tuesday on the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach. But Mr. Eggleston questioned the Republican lawmaker’s to decision to subpoena Mr. Simas, who serves as the director of that office. “While I am hopeful that we can

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got a rock-star reception during a standing-room-only campaign rally here Monday, as hundreds of liberal activists cheered her broadsides against corporate interests and voiced hopes that her presence might shift the political winds in an increasingly Republican state. The rally on behalf of Senate candidate Natalie Tennant was the latest in a string of recent Warren appearances in red and blue states alike, where Democratic base voters have embraced her fiery message as an envoy to working-class voters frustrated with both Wall Street and the Obama administration. “Our job is to fight for the

Lie at Heart of “Immigration
Reform” Exposed

Posted By: Toledo- 7/15/2014 12:11:48 AM     Post Reply
“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Nadine Gordimer, the South African writer whose literary ambitions led her into the heart of apartheid to create a body of fiction that brought her a Nobel Prize in 1991, died on Sunday in Johannesburg. She was 90. Her family announced her death in a statement. Ms. Gordimer did not originally choose apartheid as her subject as a young writer, she said, but she found it impossible to dig deeply into South African life without striking repression. And once the Afrikaner nationalists came to power in 1948, the scaffolds of the apartheid system began to rise around her and could not be

A Marine Corps officer who accused the service’s top general and other members of his staff of wrongdoing last year in an inspector general complaint has been transferred to a new base in southeastern Virginia, nine months after he was removed from his job as a lawyer in Quantico, Va. Maj. James Weirick began a new assignment in Suffolk, Va., with the Pentagon’s Joint Staff early in July, said his lawyer and military officials.

In an interview with National Public Radio’s David Folkenflik, former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson said that the network discouraged her from pursuing stories on the Obama administration, and seemingly lost interest in her government watchdog stories to the point that they kept them off the air. Here are some excerpts from Attkisson’s interview: “You know, times I’ve been encouraged to begin covering stories about the Obama administration but then mid-stream I’ve been clearly discouraged from continuing to pursue them as the stories seem to start to get dicey, or as I seem to be able to turn up very good

I heard two explosions, one after the other, indicating that two Kassam rockets had struck my town, Sderot, Israel, at about 1:30 last Thursday morning. Having been through the big fire of last week, when a Kassam ignited a paint factory, I looked out my window for any sign of fire. I saw none. I considered going out to look for the damage, but I knew nobody would be in the streets at that hour. Nobody would be able to direct me in the direction of the bombing. I listened for ambulance or fire-engine sirens, but I heard none. I

Media Ignorance Is Becoming

Last week, conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt interviewed Zach Carter, who is The Huffington Post‘s senior political economy reporter. The interview’s purpose was to discuss Carter’s negative response to Hewitt’s previous interview of former Vice President Dick Cheney. The interview was lively and interesting but it did not go well for Carter, who was forced to admit his ignorance of the historical context of the situation in Iraq. Looked at one way, the interview might almost seem like pointless point-scoring. In response to Hewitt’s questions, Carter admitted he didn’t know who Alger Hiss was and that he hadn’t read The Looming

Mail Online has apologised to George Clooney for publishing an inaccurate story about him, his fiancee and her mother. It has also taken down the article from its website and is planning to give the actor an "opportunity to set the record straight." The story, published originally by Mail Online and then published, in part, by the Daily Mail, stated that the mother of Amal Alamuddin, who is engaged to Clooney, had opposed their forthcoming marriage on religious grounds. Clooney issued a statement accusing the Mail of irresponsibility in publishing what he said was "a completely fabricated story." It stated that Alamuddin´s mother, Baria,

Mark Zuckerberg’s immigration

Mark Zuckerberg’s immigration reform push had all the capital, connections and star power to merit success. But not even Silicon Valley could make this investment — and the Facebook founder’s first foray into national politics — pay off. Tech leaders poured millions into FWD.us, an immigration advocacy group that has dominated ad buys, launched elaborate hackathons and coddled conservatives in an effort to revamp the country’s immigration system. It galloped into the debate with the tech industry’s classic certainty but wound up facing the same obstacles that have halted reform for decades.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again.

Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses – perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact. In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of “political will.” As Andrew McCarthy explained: “You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support – a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines.”
