: : : 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.
Take your damn pills. I am PAGEN anyway. I don't serve your "god". I am sure that other people don't either this is NOT church it is a message board for a man that makes movies which "OH MY" have bad words in them.
