I can't believe how hysterical people are getting over a simple tv show. But like I said, it was the same with the Shack. People were acting like they were part of the production crew. smh Don't understand it.
Who is getting hysterical? You have a tendency to over reaction, but you should not project that onto everyone else. Some are supportive of people being lead to Christ through this series, and we are being told we are standing with perverts because of it, and having all manner of sin levelled at us, falsely accused, the usual. LOL. And those who have been telling blatant lies refuse to cop to it, as per usual. A few are supportive of Dallas Jenkins, also. So far I have been giving him the benefit of any doubt, as he tries to manage the unmanageable with this media storm over a rainbow flag that seems to have been fuelled largely by Christians.

Please don't speak for me and assume my frame of mind and/or emotional state. smh

At least now perhaps RA will realize one of his many lies, since he said there was zero moderation here.
Can I give it a try?
Let's see...

If I could read your mind I'm betting what a tale your thoughts would tell. I'm getting something about a ghost and a wishing well.

Am I close?

Interesting you should mention Satan, since Satan is part of their outreach and marketing strategy. It is a parody.

It makes Satan a little too likeable, not sure that is a good thing.

Yep, totally a Chosen, Inc. marketing tool. If you go to the website, https://www.thechosenisnotgood.com/, and click "Watch," it takes you to an Angel Studios page.

Depends on what you mean by "hysterical."
I think it is more like being triggered, needing a safe space, seeing opinions and words as hateful.

When someone or something you like is exposed and you cannot deal with the fact you have been fooled
tends to be the reaction, people often double down, however sometimes people wisen up, depends on if they can be objective and are willing to look at all sides of the issue. (Disclaimer: may or may not apply here, not sure)

Gee, kinda reminds of the far left. :unsure:

Magenta, I am not trying to speak for you, nor have I ever. RA can speak for himself, and does readily and always has. I was asking if you were talking about Snacker. I am not going to sit down and read this entire thread. I gave my POV, I'm entitled to do so, the same as anyone else here. I'm not taking anyones side, as always I speak for myself.

So overly upset that sides are lined up (apparently) over a stupid tv show. So much so that it leads to attacking each other, supposedly brothers and sisters in Christ, over Hollywood people. smh It seems utterly ridiculous.

I don't know about you or anyone else but I'm not upset. For me it's about a lot more than a "stupid TV show"; it's about truth. I suppose you're happy to go along to get along. If so that's fine for you. I'm not made that way.

You said every one gets heated here, I assumed you meant this conversation, why wouldn't I? I have been engaged in this conversation here and in other threads over a longer period time than this thread has been in existence, the count goes up, you are new to it and are unaware of things people said or how anyone has countered them. Don't lump me in with everybody else. I don't appreciate it.
just to say that people get heated here, everyone of us
I have countered many false posts from a number of people. Just the facts, ma'am,
in many cases, because people are also spreading misinformation and lies.

Ok, I grant you hysterical was too much, overly upset then. I do not think I tend to over react because if that was my bent I wouldn't have been here at CC as long as I have. Longer than the majority here.



Some are supportive of people being lead to Christ through this series, and we are being told we are standing with perverts because of it, and having all manner of sin levelled at us, falsely accused, the usual.
And I haven't done that to anyone. I have given my opinion, simple as that. I step into a crossfire innocently and now my character is being called into question. smh Over a tv show. Yes, I would consider that "overly upset".


And those who have been telling blatant lies refuse to cop to it, as per usual.
Then you have mods for that. It's not my job to discipline anyone. Everyones words are here, if people are telling lies, alerts the mods.


A few are supportive of Dallas Jenkins, also. So far I have been giving him the benefit of any doubt, as he tries to manage the unmanageable with this media storm over a rainbow flag that seems to have been fuelled largely by Christians.
Don't know him, can't say either way. This is pride month and every company is pushing this agenda. Yes, Christians are upset over it. The WH put the pride flag in place of the American flag and transgenders exposed their "chests" in a WH celebration. So yes, this is a touchy subject, yes, people are upset and are pushing back. It's as simple as this, people will either continue to support the show or turn it off. And not one person in this thread can do one thing about it. So why all the nastiness?!

LOL. What would a mod do about someone saying that the chosen is fiction from top to bottom, or
however exactly that was said? Yeah, so many lies told, including that there is zero moderation here.


I gave a few examples of how it is not fiction from top to bottom. Here

Discipling people? Jeepers. I point out people's lies. That's hardly disciplining anyone.

Pointing out people's lies does not even stop the lies. Does not mean I will stop pointing them out.
And I haven't done that to anyone. I have given my opinion, simple as that. I step into a crossfire innocently and now my character is being called into question. smh Over a tv show. Yes, I would consider that "overly upset".
I am simply informing you of what has been going on since you really don't know and have admitted
as much! You act as if I am accusing you of things I am not. That is an over reaction from you.

CC is hilarious. smh I'm getting flack for seeming to "side" with you and you turn around and smack me in the face for "going along to get along". rofl Just crazy. Damned if you do or you don't. Unreal.

You seem to have a tendency to emotionalize everything. If anyone's hysterical it's you. Goodbye.

Oh that's ok RA gave me the brush off. RA and I have a long history, he just doesn't remember it. I gave my opinion on what I read here and in an article it was just as simple as that. I will certainly not find myself "siding" with anyone here again. I might as well shoot myself in the foot.

RA, RA,RA you won't be missed. You weren't the first time around and you won't be the second. Forgive me all to pieces for agreeing with you. I will make sure it won't happen again. ;)

Maybe he does not know who you are. He has had me on ignore for a long time but I am certain he reads at least some of my posts. He has also said he does not put people on ignore and then talk to others about them, but he is wrong about that also, because I have witnessed him talking about me to others after admitting he had me on ignore. Just another falsehood from the fingertips of him who claims he is only interested in the truth or some such. I am not sure who you were siding with, or at least, who you mean in the post I am now responding to. I was certainly cautioning you against siding with the person who has now been banned. It seemd to me you were, though I was not sure, and I was at work, and busy also just as you are. His rhetoric was over the top, and completely uncalled for.

I understand what you are saying, but I do think the real concern is the flag on the set and the director's weak justification, not the person but they flag and what it represents.
Anyone who is working and living in the real world where woke is the agenda understands the significance and why it is very problematic for a show which proclaims it is showcasing the "authentic" Jesus which is crowd funded by Christians.

If you are going to take money from Christians there should be some line drawn concerning a symbol taken from scripture and used to promote a lifestyle in contradiction to scripture.
Many Christians feel betrayed because on some level they deserve a "safe space" from worldly influences.

Right, which was why I brought up Cracker Barrel, who are holding on by the skin of their teeth in my state at least, and Dollar Tree, Target, all trying to be woke and ignoring their biggest supporters. And I don't see anything that makes this case any different. People will speak one way or the other. They will either believe what the director is saying, or be offended and walk away. People are seeing they do have say and they are using their support or taking it away to make themselves heard. I have no interest in watching the show, but others may keep it on air. That's the great thing, we don't like in CC world, we all have freedom of choice, at least for now.

Well then you and I have the same experience with RA. According to RA being Pentecostal is akin to Satanism. Now he would probably deny saying that outright. But that was our first go round at CC. I don't see the one who was banned as coming back again. I would, in fact, be quite surprised.
