“Satan’s Little Helper”? Christian Group Calls For Boycott Of Movie “Hobbit”

Christians For A Moral America really do not want you to see the Hobbit. It appears that really bad things come in really small packages. Producer Sir Peter Jackson is a self-proclaimed atheist. It would appear that he would have been better off proclaiming that he was an orc.


Here is the statement from the organization:

Invading your local cinema next winter is a new work of evil The Hobbit. The Hobbit follows on from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and seemingly has brought everyone back to “Middle Earth” from the dead. Peter Jackson has once again stepped up as Satan’s Little Helper to direct the two-part film and is once again using witchcraft and wizardry to peddle the film, even though the books had strong Christian undertones (good vs evil; Christians vs Atheists) but Jackson being the self-proclaimed Atheist he is obviously doesn’t want to present this movie in the way it was meant by Tolkien. Let’s vote with our wallets and send a big message to Hollywood and Jackson; Christians will NOT tolerate this blatant Anti-Christian bigotry and Atheist propaganda. Our children’s minds are filled with enough poison these days from the media without us as parents actively doing the same while filling liberal fat cats’ coffers.

The group appears as focused on Jackson being an atheist as the screenplay itself — not to mention “liberal fat cats.” (It turns out that conservative fat cats are acceptable in the eyes of God).

The prejudice against atheists is growing with leaders in both the United States and abroad joining a crusade against those who refuse to embrace a God — any God.

It seems that every religious groups is rushing to warn that the Hobbit is either faith-friendly or faith-threatening. The Catholic writers have found that film to be not only faithful but Catholic in its message — tying its messages directly to Biblical accounts. Others have identified Gandalf as the ultimate Christ figure.

Then, of course, it could be just a really cool movie.

  1. GH: thanks for the Tolkien quote; it now has its own little folder on the Desktop. Might I add another —

    “Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
    ― G.K. Chesterton

  2. [“When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called Religion.”—Robert M. Pirsig]

    I find it so ironic, that atheists, who supposedly believe that God doesn’t exist, spend so much time and hot air debating about something they supposedly don’t believe in. And they do it over and over and over.

    The rabid nutjob dogmatic atheism religion is the poster child for delusion, insanity, and nonsense.

    When an atheist criticizes religion, he/she unwittingly saws off the branch they’re perched upon.

  3. rafflaw, Yes, and to echo your sentiment…. I, too, am weary of these “crazy right wing religious wackos”….

  4. “The prejudice against atheists is growing with leaders in both the United States and abroad”

    Are you friggin’ kidding me???? Atheists for who knows how long have been sucessful in thwarting the justice system and perverting laws to reflect their own warped opinions about religion and have been taking down crosses, making school systems afraid of putting the word “CHRISTMAS” on December 25 on their calendars, changed “Christmas break” to “winter holiday” or “seasonal holiday” vacations, etc… Even though Christmas (Dec. 25) is a FEDERAL HOLIDAY, the nutjob atheists have been able to scare everybody away from even refering to Dec. 25 as Christmas.

    And the atheists are experiencing growing prejudice??? Give me a friggin’ break. I have to call BS here. If anything, more and more people are starting to get fed up with the way atheists are pushing their Godless extremely dogmatic anti-God anti-common sense useless religion of atheism on everyone.

    Eventually people get tired of this obvious prejudice against Christianity. But to say the poor atheists are really having it bad right now is just a bunch of BS. No question.

  5. Geeba,
    My opinion of the Bible is just that, an opinion. However, I have the right to express it just like you have the right to express yours. I listen to opinions of all kinds and respond with my opinion. Which I did and for some reason, you couldn’t handle someone expressing an opinion that you don’t like.
    The Beginning

  6. Raff, who’s invading your space? I suppose your opinion is invading their space, no? If you don’t agree with their stance I’m with you. But name-calling across the great distances of the internet doesn’t do us any good. Then you infer that the bible is fanciful – like “The Hobbit”. Well you know … it’s a story, OK? One theme is about diverse groups joining together in a common cause to overcome overwhelming odds. Sound familiar?

    Suggested point: Other people have opinions based on their life’s experiences, valid to you or not. Listen to them, balance their claims vs yours, adjust your thoughts if warranted … or don’t.

    The End

  7. What I find ironic about the whole hullabaloo is that both the pro-Tolkien and anti-Tolkien Christians omit from their thinking that Tolkien – while a Christian himself – was very purposefully creating modern mythology.

    “We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming ‘sub-creator’ and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic ‘progress’ leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien

  8. One tenet of the religion of the Orcs was quite popular it seems.

    Uruk and Uruk-hai were reserved for the Uruks themselves, a special breed or breeds of Orc; they called smaller, weaker Orcs snaga, “slave”.

    They practiced slavery. That was a popular doctrine in southern churchianity circles. And still is in some places in the southern whims.

  9. Yeah I don’t see how you could possibly expect more out of the Rings movies than what we got. They did nearly the best possible job.

  10. I am not a fan of Hobbit, but I am tired of crazy right wing religious wackos invading my personal space. If you don’t like the movie, don’t go to it. I guess Jesus wouldn’t want humans to be creative. Of course, if you read the Bible, there is a lot of fanciful creativity within its pages.

  11. What about “Sauron’s Little Helper”?

    Some bad guys get no respect.

    Frankly,

    I know a bit about screenwriting versus novels. I’m interested in how you think the “Rings” movies defiled the books. Considering the limitations of screenwriting, I thought they did a pretty good job (a couple of small quibbles aside).

  12. “When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called Religion.”—Robert M. Pirsig

  13. I love the books but hated the ‘Rings’ movies so I was shy about seeing ‘Hobbit’. After reading this I may go see it more than once. I am tired of small-minded fools insisting we live in a medieval world where succubus steal our vital essence and witches and warlocks invite satan into our soul. Sticking a thumb in their eye makes the $8 investment worth it even if the movie defiles the book.
