“Christian” Homophobe Kirk Cameron’s Movie “Saving Christmas” Sets Humiliating Mark for Futility

kirk-cameronIt’s that time of year where many right-wing Americans talk endless about their trumped-up “war on Christmas” that seems to only exist in their own minds. They seem to think there’s some coordinated effort to “take Christ out of Christmas,” which is ridiculous. What there has been is a coordinated effort to remove religion from places it does not belong.

Okay, well that’s not entirely true. I will admit there has been an effort by some overly politically correct people to slam businesses who allow their employees to say “Merry Christmas.” And to those people I say – get over it. If someone says “Merry Christmas” either say it back, say “Happy Holidays” or here’s a novel idea… just say “you too.” Don’t be an overly PC prick who’s out to make everyone’s lives miserable because you feel the need to tell everyone else what they should or shouldn’t say. And the same goes to those people who say “Merry Christmas” and get “offended” when someone might dare respond with something other than those two words.

People really need to stop being “outraged” over this kind of stupid stuff.

But, be that as it may, radical “Christian” homophobe Kirk Cameron apparently decided he needed to “save Christmas” himself by starring in a movie titled Saving Christmas. The premise of this movie is Cameron going around trying to prove that almost every tradition we have at Christmas is tied to Christ. This movie is apparently the antithesis of the “materialistic takeover” of Christmas. Which is ironic considering they spent just over $500,000 to make this thing. Then they released it right as the holiday season was gearing up so that they could capitalize on the season, and they’re certainly not giving the tickets away for free considering it’s made $2.5 million (so far).

And just in case you haven’t been privy to Cameron’s well-known history of homophobia and bashing homosexuals, just take a look at this CNN interview where he called homosexuality “damaging” to society.

Well, it seems Cameron’s attempt to “save Christmas” has been an absolute failure as his movie topped IMDB’s charts – for being the worst rated movie out of their database of over 3 million movies, television shows and documentaries:

It even managed to score a zero on Rotten Tomatoes.

Now I’ll fully admit this isn’t exactly “newsworthy,” but it made me laugh nonetheless so I felt like sharing. To reach this level of futility to where even the holiest of the holy conservatives seem to think your movie is garbage propaganda takes a lot. Because I can guarantee you that many of the people who went to see this thing were right-wing evangelicals and even they thought it was terrible.

So I think we should all head on over to Cameron’s Facebook page and congratulate the guy who thinks homosexuals are “destroying our society” for topping IMDB’s movie chart – for the worst movie ever made.
