Quote# 57540

This movie [Horton Hears a Who] was a major, and very insulting, slap to all Christians and dedicated homeschool parents being villainized in a cartoon which Hollywood seems to think by serving it up on this platter, down plays their insults. This and “Happy Feet” are absolute shining examples of liberal Hollywood using us to propagate our babies...

Moral rating: Very Offensive
Moviemaking quality: 4

You are very easily offended. I suggest you to get a real job.

But the bible which condones, rape, slavery, mass murder, wars of agression, genocide and death for the most unimportant of offences, is completly okay?

Isn't propagation, you know, the *entire point* of having babies? I'm not sure how a film could help there, at least not the kind of film that's under discussion here...

... the word is "propagandise", you uneducated idiot.

Horton Hears a Who? Don't remember Horton calling Jesus into question.

Dr Suess' collective works blow the Bible away.

I'm a home-educating parent, and I howled with laughter at the digs at home-schooling. It was laughing at the cliches, not the general reality, and if you fit the cliches, well ...

Don't blame Hollywood, blame Dr Suess, he wrote it.

Personally I think Dr Suess was a wise man.

If hollywood is propagating your babies then I think you should at least have the decency to inform your husband who the real father of the children is.

P.S. You are an idiot.

Dr. Seuss, Harry Potter- kids love them, they encourage kids to read. Fundies hate them.
The bible- scary, full of vioence, and boring, turns kids off of reading and education in general. Fundies looove it.

"age 43"

You left out a decimal point.

I haven't seen Horton Hears a Who, but what the hell was wrong with Happy Feet? It was about dancing penguins and saving the environment.

2/2/2009 7:36:20 PM

A life. Get one.

Plus, homeschooling produces Christfag losers like you, anyway, so why are you complaining when it's accurately portrayed as such in the media?

2/7/2009 1:59:55 AM


Hm. I admit to not seeing the movie although I do remember the TV special of "Horton." The only way "Horton" could be considered a slap to all Christians is if Carolina saw Christians as know-nothing elitist kangaroos and their blind followers willing to kidnap and commit inadvertent genocide.

If you thought "Horton Hears a Who"was bad.

Just wait till you see the sequel "Horton Hires a Whore" ;-)

2/7/2009 3:26:17 AM


They hate Happy Feet because it deals with global warming, which fundies refuse to believe in because the Republicans them not to.

2/7/2009 3:53:52 AM

I assure you, no one wants you to propagate your babies.

Allegory for Jesus

And yet religionauts will also embrace the basic idea of Horton Hears a Who whole heartedly. They love the idea that someone actually is communication with something that other people can't see, and is misunderstood by other people for that. It appeals very much to them: the idea that they are special and know something that the "scoffers" don't, rather than simply being wrong.

I performed a play version of Horton hears a who back in middle school. I'm suprised you didn't give me the,"you will go to hell" treatment.

That website contains many other similar gems. It's worth a look, if you want a giggle.

What the FUCK!? HORTON HEARS A WHO!??! Did you not catch the ENTIRE message of that movie- repeated OVER AND OVER AGAIN- "Just because you can't see it, smell it, hear it, touch it or taste it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist".

Please, lady, just shut the fuck up. That's a shining endorsement of blind, retarded faith if I ever saw one.

Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. '"Dr". Seuss' may not have gotten a Ph.D at university, But his works have done infinitely more to educate early years readers to the priceless joys of literature than 'hoemskuling' (least of all by fundie parents) ever have.

If he were alive today, he would have been awarded honorary degrees in Literature, which was what he was aiming for originally.

The classic James Stewart film "Harvey", as well as the more recent "Donnie Darko" would make Carolina (age 4+3=7)have an aneurysm. I mean, the concept of something that nobody else believes exists, but you? Sound familiar eh, fundies...?! >:D

One word: Delusions.

Ah, yes, that WOULD be funny. I would like to see their reaction to "the Nightmare before Christmas" or "The Hogfather."

I think that then, we will finally be able to figure out how long it takes for someone to choke on their own ichor and vitriol.

Personally, though, I can't WAIT to see their reaction to Obama getting reelected. See, Christians? This is what happens when you field unelectable crazies.

Get a life please.

If anyone here is a bit bored, jump to the web site and search out some of your favorite movies to find out how damned unGodly they are. It gets pretty fundily halarious what they'll key on and what they think should be edited out to make it "better".

I searched the Avengers movie and most the commentors came out of that movie so happy because Captain America made a "there's only one God, maam". As a long time Marvel fan I cringed a little myself but it's not out of character for old-world Cap, glad it made their day.

But the nasty kangaroo was NOT a Christian! She said "If I can't hear it, see it or touch it, *it doesn't exist*!" Does THAT sound like someone who believes in God? Not to me...
Anyway, I know this is asking a whole lot of you, but please please PLEASE try to just shut up and enjoy a movie...it won't kill you.

And this is the point where Carolina's brain, desperate for escape, jumped out her ear and hopped away. Carolina, however, just kept typing and didn't miss it at all.
