If your a Christian and have heard about this documentary, you've probably either laughed it off or been offended. James Cameron and crew have released a documentary that is supposed to air on the Discovery Channel claiming to have found the remains of Jesus and his family (wife and son). Christian groups all over America are claiming this is an attack on Christianity.
And yet again, i'm left on the wrong side of the wall, shaking my head at these strange Christians. If the Discovery Channel had done a documentary on the obsurdity of Allah, Christian groups would have said nothing. They might even have defended the airing of the program, saying that it was one perspective and that people should be allowed to see all different sides of the issue.
I'm left asking, why are Christians so afraid of a documentary? If you are unable to allow the airing of critizim of your views, it makes your stance look weak. It looks like if anyone starts to look at your religion at all it will crumble. That shouldn't be the case!
Furthermore, if you're trying keep this from getting noticed, COMPLAINING ABOUT IT DOESN'T HELP! The more you complain, the more people are going to watch. Exactly what do you want to come out of this?
