On a side note…

March 3, 2006 § 2 Comments

Producer sues Oscars over credit, is an article about one of the 6 producers of the film Crash.

Although completely irrelevant to the original article, the following last paragraphs (why the last?) are not to be overlooked:

Meanwhile, a conservative US Christian group has said 61,000 people have signed a letter protesting against Brokeback Mountain’s eight Academy Award nominations.

The Center for Reclaiming America for Christ said the acclaim “had little to do with honouring great moviemaking”.

“Instead, it is just a high-profile attempt to mainstream the homosexual agenda,” the centre said.

The letter, sent to the Academy, said the gay cowboy story was “offensive to the vast majority of Americans“.

Scary religious totalitarianism, still not to the same scale as here

    you’re irritated? I’m scared… That some people would use the name of Christ in that way is very frightening…

    Irritated that this item doesn’t get it’s own article, but only makes it at the very bottom (no pun intended!) of another page…

What’s this?
