10/28/2004: Thought for the Day:
[T]he glib definition of the movies during the Golden Age of Hollywood was "a Jewish-owned business selling Roman Catholic theology to Protestant America"--an ecumenical arrangement that required all denominations to sacrifice serious doctrinal differences before the altar of pure entertainment. As a result, the figure of Christ has always been a minor player on the Hollywood screen. Not only does the Old Testament God rain down more spectacular special effects, he is less liable to be divisive to either side of the Judeo-Christian hyphen.
