‘God’s Not Dead’ is Sort of Catholic? UPDATED

More here soon, for now read this:

Though it is frequently described as a “Christian film” (which it is), the fact is not always mentioned that the two men who penned the screenplay are devout Catholics, Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman.

Read the interview at the National Catholic Register.

I’ll post a longer update soon, after I teach class this evening. If you haven’t read it yet, I’ll be referring to my review of God’s Not Dead, here.

UPDATE:

I don’t really feel like typing more effort into what is, at this point, just a really bad movie. Sure, I had a strong and serious response and tried to give it a fighting chance, but right now I am more worried that I’m giving ugliness too much credit. Sorry, more on other stuff soon.

In the meantime, you may want to read through my archived tab of The Weekly Apocalypse.
