Further thoughts on the movie “Fireproof”

As regular readers of this blog may know, I recently watched the terrible Christian movie “Fireproof” and wrote a blog post about it. You can read that blog post here.

A few people have asked when I was going to share my livetweet session of this movie with the blogging world and I have finally gotten around to doing just that. Enjoy!

    Up until the Jesus bits, and excluding the freaking out about porn (sorry, P*RN), THIS WAS ACTUALLY MY MARRIAGE. And it took me forever to believe it was abusive because apparently I imbibed more Christian culture mythology about marriage than I had realized, and held onto it unknowingly even after I left my faith. The scary thing is, I don’t know if I would’ve ever realized it except that my husband and I embraced non-monogamy and I started spending more time with somebody who actually treated me more like a person than a broken dishwasher.

    This stuff is toxic.

    I have never been able to see what’s (supposedly) so great about that movie. I agree that it’s very triggering if you’ve ever been emotionally or spiritually abused and manipulated.

    Why is he so angry his wife ate the last piece of pizza? Hasn’t he learned to hide food around the house yet? How long has he been married anyway? I don’t find this very believable.

    I started hiding food (so I’d actually get some) before we even got married. :)
