Oh, and I just saw this. Eric McCormack would be perfect for God's Not Dead 3: God is a Boob Man

Christian films with a tenuous grasp on our Constitution and Christian legislators with a tenuous grasp on our Constitution are both having a moment right now, so naturally, Saturday Night Live brought them together in one spectacular trailer. Vanessa Bayer plays a simple baker persecuted for her faith by the most powerful force in America: a gay couple.
How can you be sure my refusal to agree with your claim a symptom of my ignorance and not yours?

How is it that nobody here has commented on the release date yet!?! The irony is so divine that I'm not sure if it was somehow done intentionally by a non-Christian or by happy accident. After all, what Christian would allow a movie (about how God still exists and Christians are persecuted) to open on April 1st, otherwise known as April Fool's Day! XD

So they thought we would change our minds, if we watch a movie. LOL

Don't underestimate how child-like Americans are.

It's less child-like and more brainwashed since birth and scared to disagree because we have been so conditioned to follow it that we grasp for any bit of justification. We follow the crowd mentality and parrot what we have been conditioned to say. To go against it will mean hardship and to become the evil we have had drilled into our tiny heads. So many take the "better safe than sorry" stance for fear of both hell and ostracism.

It's changing but not fast enough. You would be surprised how many "Christians" here are secular or deeply closeted atheists or agnostics who only nod and parrot when necessary. They often don't go to a church of any kind. They often say they are not active, not practicing, have to work (or need to relax from work) on Sundays, or post out a flaw in churches before saying they worship at home. It's the way things have to be for a lot of people for the time being.
