    I guess some people have a hard time distinguishing reality from fantasy. It reminds me of an interview that I watched years ago on TV with the actor who played the angel of death on "Touched By An Angel." He said that he was asked by the airline to take another flight because some passengers on the plane were freaked out that he was on the same flight as they were. He was told that these passengers recognized him as the "angel of death," and it really scared them. He said that he agreed because he didn't want to upset anyone. He joked about it, but he said it wasn't funny then. Sadly, he passed away a few years ago. I guess if you portray the angel of death on a TV show and your last name is Dye, then you might freak out a few people who apparently can't tell reality from fantasy.

    No one is better than God. So, we cannot "correct" God.

    Yeah, that's him. Maybe he was desperate for an acting job because that movie was awful, in my opinion.

    Is it wrong for doctors to fix birth defects or prescribe glasses?

    Now does that include the Christians acting like they love people while taking actions to harm them?

    He's not alone. Some of our leftish friends object
    to actors playing characters of a different race or
    sexual orientation. And they cancelled Apu.

    Ok this is quite simple,it’s called acting,Malcolm McDowell wasn’t really Caligula in the movie,Tom Cruise didn’t really fight aliens in the “war of the world” movie either.

    Yes, but it is better than to say, "I am Atheist." in front of all planet watching.

    So I guess gay actors portraying straight characters are getting boons from God.

    I highly doubt that God would be the oversensitive, insecure, petty, vindictive little ***** that you make him out to be. In fact, perhaps your own portrayal of God here in this thread is the real insult and blasphemy.

    Mel Gibson played a priest who had lost his faith in that alien movie. But he eventually started to believe again. That's what often happens in faith based movies too. So in that case playing an atheist would be ok I think.

    And tell me why not? God has not created satan. God created holy angel Lucifer. Not satan.

    We will be judged by our motives and sincere intent. The wages of unrepentant sin is eternal death. Hell isn't a place of eternal torment.
