Big heads of Blueturnous, we have a cereal bigger than yours. Slowly but surely I am turning into that cranky old man that sits on his porch and shakes his cane at the neighborhood hooligans.
I had to edit a short film for my church. The theme was â€œGet on the Bus.â€ I spent a number of hours on it and then turned it in. I was expecting to make a couple of tweaks here and there, but I ended up reformatting half the film. Any why? Because I used a track of â€œMagic Busâ€ on the movie and the person in charge thought is was too sexual. I also had to remove the Beatles track of â€œIn the Endâ€â€¦why? Oh yes that was too sexual too.
Then when I made all the frigginâ€™ changes, they ask me to remove a picture of a short bus, because it might give the wrong impression. (Yeah, like maybe Christ meets us where we areâ€¦or maybe God only wants people who can access the â€œgoodâ€ bus) Anyway I was quite pissed. Can you tell?
So this incident leaves me with two thoughts. Oneâ€¦people are really too hung up on sex. Twoâ€¦I have been a Christian for most of my life and I am still not a very loving/forgiving person. In fact, I think I may be a little less loving than in years gone by. The thing is I am not sure I even care. This is probably the real tragedy.
