Looks like the Christian Culture War is currently alive and well in the Indie film world. There’s a fund raiser going on right now on the Indiegogo.com website to fund a film about courtship named “Betrothed: A Love Story”.
It’s being billed as a documentary film and a romantic comedy. Here’s a short synopsis of the film.
“Finding the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with can seem nothing short of impossible, but what if you decided that you were going to renounce dating, save yourself for marriage, and leave the process of looking for your husband up to your parents…and God? This is the story of Kelly, a young woman who is doing just that.”
Guessing that the aim of this film is to make courtship seem ‘Godly’ and the right way to go about finding a husband. While the idea isn’t exactly main stream in our society this film seems more like propaganda for courtship, in the same way that the disingenuous Duggar television shows are propaganda for the Quiverfull movement.
What do you think?
