Horton Hears a Who will hypnotise your kids into believing in global warming


Preview is a Christian website that reviews films for Christian would-be movie goers in order to give them some guidance, in a Christian context, as to the suitability of movies.  It gives each film a morality rating and informs people of anything that might be offensive to their religious beliefs.  I dare say it probably also weeds out any messages that might tempt their kids to (gasp) question stuff.  These are the people who gave the Harry Potter films a negative morality rating.  The Scorcerers Stone was higly honoured to recieve a record morality rating of minus 4.  It just doesn’t get lower than that.

Anyway, the thought police have a review on their website of the new movie, Horton Hears a Who.  It’s a film based on the marvellous Dr Seuss books.  I heard incidentally that the Christian pro-lifer’s took a recurring line from the book . . . . “a person’s a person, no matter how small” . . . and used it for their anti-abortion campaign. 

Here’s a paragraph from the review of the film:

Updated to include references to global warming in order to satisfy those who believe Manhattan will soon be drenched in melted glaciers, the CG heavy feature becomes a hypnotic eco message – a long one.

Beware good people – it seems that the movie is in danger of brainwashing our Christian children into believeing that global warming actually does exist.

  1. Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who is classic, i forgot how much that guy packed into such simple storylines… they didn’t add much to the original story either except for the usual Jim Carreyisms.

  2. It seems to me, as a thinking, spiritual person who happens to be Christian, that the so-called “christian” right has hijacked a thinking person’s faith.

    Eco-minded people can have faith. The Christian-right doesn’t have a right to establish mind-control over sanity and good-science.

  3. Hi D. Maurer, thanks for the comment which I fully agree with. I do hope the sarcasm in my post was detectable.
