In Reply to: KEV, YOUR VULGARITY CONFUSES ME!!! posted by punkmonkey75 on August 27, 2001 at 23:44:42:

: Kevin, I'm rather confused about you. I don't know you, so I really can't
: make any sort of judgments about what kind of person you are, but I
: don't understand how someone who is a devout Catholic can
: produce movies so full of vulgarity and obscenities. Do you really feel
: that God is pleased with this sort of thing? I have seen all your
: movies except the latest, so far, and there are parts that I do enjoy.
: You certainly have an ear for good dialogue, but my enjoyment has
: been hampered by the constant cursing and sexual crudeness. I
: really am digging your Green Arrow series, which proves that you can
: spin a good yarn without the profanities, so why chock your films so
: full of them? I see all the zombies out there (especially at the
: Chicago Con) who try to act and talk just like your movie characters,
: and it brings me down. I know you don't owe me any sort of
: explanation, but I'd really like to know who the real Kevin Smith is and
: if there's some secret justification for all this that I'm just too dense to
: grasp. I know the Bible says to not use coarse or crude language
: and humor (Ephesians 5: 4 "There should not be among you any
: obscenity, foolish talk or coarse jesting, which are out of place...",
: Colossians 3: 8 "You should rid yourselves of all such things as
: these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your
: lips.") , but you obviously interpret that differently than it reads. Clue
: me in, here. Obviously I don't think all movies should be bereft of any
: foul language as it adds authenticity and conveys intensity, but no
: movie ever needs the level of foul language that some of yours
: contain, especially when it's used strictly for cheap laughs and shock
: value. I'm not singling you out, others do the same, I'm just using this
: forum to try to understand you.
: So, if you've got the time, please respond. If not, I'm sure one of your
: devoted followers will be sure to step in and put me in my place with
: some of that clever language they like to use to put down those with
: opinions that differ from theirs.
: Thanks!
