: : 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!


yeah, just look at the platypus!
