Where are the Christian movies?

Remember the predictions of a surge in Christian-themed movies after “The Passion of the Christ” became such a smash hit? Well, it didn’t happen. Studios, such as Fox, did open divisions for religious films, but they are mostly churning out straight-to-video adaptations of sappy Christian popular fiction. See Faith-based films few, far between.

    Considering how out-of-touch Hollywood is with mainstream America, this is no surprise. Consider the dreck that usually passes for, say, “family comedy”. Do we really *want* Hollywood making “faith films”?

    (Mel Gibson’s movie was an exception because it was a film based on *his* faith.)
