If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know I've had some trouble reconciling my love of movies with the attitudes of other Christians (yes, I'm a Christian) who believe that censorship is the way to go. After reading a fascinating and insightful post on censorship by my friend Rick over at Coosa Creek Mambo, I've got two new thoughts on the topic.
- I could never have imagined that communist China and prominent members of my faith would express identical sentiments about entertainment.
- If Christianity is all we say it is, and if Jesus is really the way, the truth, and the life, then shouldn't that hold up to scrutiny? Shouldn't we encourage free thought, rather than prevent it? I just don't understand.
