[On the movie: X2: X-men united]
Looking at my ratings, you might think I didn't like the movie. That's not true, as I did enjoy the movie very much. However, looking at this from a CHRISTIAN perspective, there is much to find offensive in this film. For me though, it wasn't the violence and language that offended me, but the character of Nightcrawler. His obsession with Roman Catholic tradition (praying rosary and self punishment among other things) marred what could have been a great character with Christian beliefs. Remove the rubbish, leave in the prayers (except for Rosary) and you have a Christian character, which would have been cool.
[They gave the movie a 3/5 for quality and rated its moral value as "extremely offensive"]

So...the fact that it's the same God is irrelevant...and the same act...it's the fucking PROPS INVOLVED that offend you so grievously?!
Not to mention how he comes so close to admitting they're the same damn thing...

May the Christian Lord guide my hand against this Roman popery.

How the heck can you enjoy something and yet get offended by it at the very same time? The thing is; you loved that cheesy piece of shit (X2: X-men united) because it was tailor-made for proletariat airheads like yourself. Yet you saw that Nightcrawler character and your "Satan sense(tm)" got all tingly, so just to be on the safe side you gave it a crappy rating that ironically it actually deserved to begin with. Hahaha, I'm amused.

Nightcrawler is AWESOME. Every film or book or whatnot needs a char like him; one who's flawed. One who admits his flaws, and tries to get rid of them. One who is a good guy deep down, even despite these flaws. Heck I made up a character like that called Rival. NC was part of the inspiration for him.
Oh, and don't get me started on the whole 'CATHOLICS AINT CHRISTIANS' myth. We worship Jesus Christ and the Holy Trinity jsut like you do. But all the Catholics I know are decent people, as are the atheists I know. I also go to an Anglican church occasionally, and it's a decent place, and no one minds that we (me, my mum and a few of my cousins) go even though we're Roman Catholics. STFU, FU and DIAF.

So...thanking God for sending Jeebus is cool, but trying to thank God's rape victim is bad?
Also, you do NOT fucking shit-talk Nightcrawler!
Not where I can see it, anyways!

The religious wars between Catholics and protestants ended in Europe in 1648 but for some the religious cold war continuous to this very day
And as a protestant ones to me said "Catholics calibrate their religion, protestants morn their religion”

I agree... one does not disrespect Nightcrawler, my favourite X-Man.
May Kurt Wagner appear in your living room and deliver a teleporting beatdown on your fundie ass.

So you're offended by a character who worships the exact same deity you do but in a slightly different way? Wow, you're a touchy asshole.
