A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
Saturday morning I had breakfast with a buddy as usual our conversation went from sports to music to politics and finally religion. We both have a media background so we got to discussing Christian movies and TV shows. I mentioned a Christian show in particular and I said it looks to be sorta cheesy, like a lot of Christian media, but that I support the show because at least they’re trying to put out into the culture a show with a positive, Christian message.
So many times I believe some in the media and in the Christian culture as a whole are too quick to jump on the “cheesy Christian movie mocking” bandwagon and criticize Christian based movies because well, they’re not Christopher Nolan quality or even a low budgeted Hollywood production.
My view is that we should support these movies more because at least someone is trying to produce a movie with a positive message and promote that message within our secular culture and we should understand that the odds are also against those making these movies because a lot of times they have to fork out the money themselves to produce them, they don’t have the backing of a major Hollywood production company, and they probably are just starting out as filmmakers but at least they’re trying. And it’s better to have some poorly producer movies with a positive message than none at all in the pop culture because those movies still could make a positive difference in someone’s life.
