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!

If you don't like them, don't watch them. You have the choice to or not to watch anything that he does. And please don't use the whole Catholic thing, most of them that I know cuss and drink yet every sunday go to mass. SO don't use the "View" to preach to all of us devil-children.
