    I know this is short notice and I apologize, however the academy awards are coming this sunday the 5th. And upon studying the nominees I've noticed that there are two movies in particular that are celibrating the advese life style. 1. is "brokeback mountain" a movie about to men, sheep herders to be exact who have a sexual encounter when a storm forces them into the same tent one night. The two men later get married to women and have heterosexual relationships, but every once in a while they regroup go fishing and have sex. I would ask why two men having a homosexual affair on there wives is deserving of any award but I already know. The second movie is called transamerica and it is about a transexual man who becomes a women, and I'll just stop there.

    The point is niether of these movies are good and if it we're the same romance scenarios but heterosexual they would be ignored niether movie grossed any thing and the little money they did make were likely due to left (and right) wing gay rights activists who watched the movies numerous times in an attempt to raise enough money to create the illusion of a box office success.

    and it is my personal feeling the nominations given were favors given by activist critics who are just out to make a point. The same critics who denied "The Passion of the Christ" it's just deserts.

    So Im asking for anyone ready, willing and able to boycott the Oscers this sunday. and if you can ask a friend to do the same and pass the word on. We don't have to support this lobbying of sin If we don't want to.

    I'm 41 years old, and I've never watched them. However, I do speak out against such movies when given the opportunity.

    I don't watch that junk anyway so I can't really boycott something I don't watch. Besides its all politics and money the "good" movies never win.

    OK, so we are going to make a statement by not watching something most of us don't already watch...yeah that will show'em!

    Question can I still boycott if I didn't watch "The Passion", choosing instead to actually talk to people about Jesus rather then sending them to a movie about what somebody thinks about Jesus?

    I don't know who is and isnt watching the oscars and I am only suggesting that whoever in this crowd might intend to watch the awards should consider other wise for good reasons.

    Your missing my point. The Passion of the Christ was skipped because of bias critics, the same bias critics who are praising open and rampant sin. They are ignoring any films with the slightest hint of christian morals. and we don't have to finance it. If you made a great movie with slight christian morals, you should be considered for an award not because you got 20,000 converts but because it was a good movie. The purpose of the awards is to unbiasly award good art and "The Passion of the Christ" was just that. but it was snubed because it was objective to the critics personal views. and that is religeous descrimination. Should we boycott it? Yeah! Of course!

    I don't join other people's boycotts.
    They haven't joined mine.

    I boycot S.F. books by L. Ron Hubbard, false
    prophet for profit. I won't let one come
    in my house. Boycott for 34 years.

    This prophet for profit was a third rate
    S.F. hack who wasn't good enough a SF writer
    to make a living. All at once he figured out
    how to become a millionare - make a quack
    religion. He became a prophet for profit and
    started Siencology (sp?), a religion outlawed
    in Germany and other sane countries of
    the world.

    I don't knowingly eat orange jucie from
    Florida. I've been on this boycott for 28
    years. The Floriada Orange Juice had an
    association for whom Anita Bryant (Ms. America
    back in the early 70s?) they fired her
    because she spoke out against homosexual
    practices. No gay O.J. for me :(

    Feel free to join my boycotts; don't expect me
    to join yours. [​IMG]

    I haven't watched the Oscars for years. They became irrelevant to society a long time ago.

    Yeah, they are irrelevant. I haven't watched the Oscars in years and I use to work in the movie industry (okay, I managed a theatre). Anyway, when they announced Jon Stewart hosting I knew it wouldn't be for me. Just a bunch of lame Bush jokes and when I heared that "Brokeback Mountain" was going to be heavilly favored, this was a show I figured most Christians would skip.

    You know it's going to be a night of putting down what Christians believe in (conservative moral values) and praising what is evil.

    I might take the family to a movie 4 or 5 times in a year now, maybe less. We don't even rent movies or buy DVDs, nothing good out there.

    Quit watching televison except for the news.

    And I'm getting pretty sick of our St. Louis Post-Dispatch with it's very liberal slant toward anything a conservative Christian would stand for. Guess I'll have to quit reading the newspaper now...

    You know, we really need to share the gospel more. Obviously there are no Christians in the news and entertainment industry or we wouldn't have these movies and horrible editorials that are so anti-Christian. When people have a Biblical world-view, how they present themselves and their views and entertainment will be of true value.

    This topic has been yet another eye-opener pointing to the world's degradation. Ask me 10 years ago if some of these movies would even be concepts and I would have laughed. I'm not laughing anymore.

    We had an Oscar winner about a cannibal fifteen years ago. Not much better than a homosexual love affair.

    Academy Awards are given to the “best” (according to the Academy members) in several categories, none of which include a category for precision of fidelity to Biblical doctrines.

    The other night in my home I listened to a secular concert in 12-track stereo and I very much enjoyed it because the quality of the performance was absolutely superb. I also enjoy fine motor cars, the very finest cut leaded crystal, intricately cut flawless diamonds, $2,400 sweaters, $900 pairs of shoes, magnificent palaces, and other beautiful things that God, by His grace, has given man the ability to produce. And I see absolutely nothing wrong in giving recognition to men and women who have chosen to use those abilities to bring pleasure to others.

    No, I don’t own a $2,400 sweater. I walked past a nice men’s store one afternoon and they had the most beautiful sweaters on sale that I had ever seen. I picked up one of them and when I felt the luxurious softness of the wool that was taken from a very rare animal, I knew that sweater was just what I wanted—until I saw the price and very quickly set it down and got out of the store before I accidentally damaged something and placed myself in debt for the rest of my life. I won’t tell you how much I pay for my shoes, but I buy my shirts used from a thrift store operated by a Christian rescue mission.

    And no, I don’t watch the Academy Awards on television (I’m not a sinner)—I watch the movies for which the nominations have been given with the Academy members at the at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater and then go to the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland to watch the awards being awarded. It’s a lot of fun and the party afterward is really a blast! [​IMG]

    Looks as though I'm in total agreement with everyone here. I don't think I've ever watched the oscars (not capitalized on purpose). With Jon Stewart (who I can't stand anyway) certainly doing a lot of anti-Bush jokes and the emphasis on that homosexual movie, you couldn't pay me to watch them.

    Yes, I remember what Anita Bryant went through when she spoke out against the homosexauls.(This was back in 1977 or 1978, I had been been a Christian for a year or two at that point.)

    She kept her perspective and sense of humor even after getting hit in the face with a cream pie by a homosexual, saying "Well, at least it wasn't a fruit pie".

    I have always admired her for having the courage to stand up for her Christian convictions, even when it cost her.

    I've only been to one movie in the last six or seven years, "Black Hawk Down".
