: : Kevin, I'm rather confused about you. I don't know you, so I really
: : make any sort of judgments about what kind of person you are, but
: : don't understand how someone who is a devout Catholic can
: : produce movies so full of vulgarity and obscenities. Do you really
: : 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
: : 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
: : if there's some secret justification for all this that I'm just too dense
: : 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
: : 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
: : value. I'm not singling you out, others do the same, I'm just using
: : forum to try to understand you.
: : So, if you've got the time, please respond. If not, I'm sure one of
: : devoted followers will be sure to step in and put me in my place
: : some of that clever language they like to use to put down those
: : 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.
-And I'm sure God appreciates the positive witness THAT is.
SO don't use the "View" to preach to all of us devil-children.
-The devil doesn't have any children. God created us all, including
the devil.
