I also admit to finding it just hilarious and pathetic that Carole Whang Schutter, co-writer of the film, believes that her film’s failure might have been due to covert efforts of the LDS church, which has not publicly commented on the film.
She’s right isn’t she? The Church probably is partly responsible for poor ticket sales. Think about movies in the past that have been protested and condemned by other churches. Don’t you think those film benefited from the extra publicity? I’m sure if the Church would have come out yelling and screaming about how horrible the film was, it might have caused more curious people to buy a ticket.
So I don’t think the Church contributed to it’s failure in the way she thinks it did, but they probably contributed in a different way.]]>
Anti-mormon stuff serves some good purposes, including free advertising, which generates investigators, and even people who want to know the full or real story since the anti-stuff is so obviously slanted.]]>
You’re not gleeful that Cain (now, why not explore the symbolism of that name??) and Ms. Schuetter and their work are joining the grand parade in the dustbin of history. Instead, you’re grateful and glad that only a few people were affected by the movie, and thus the cause of truth marches on!]]>
Why not be honest and call it “The Morning a Bunch of Mormon Terrorists Butchered an Arkansas Wagon Train for Breakfast and How Brigham Young beat the Rap”?]]>
Good point. That’s a sad reality I hope is kept to a minimum by foreign theater owners realizing how bad it will do in their buildings but I can see it somehow getting into the hands of some son of mine’s investigator right before they get baptized the way Godmakers got in the hands of my investigators.]]>
