TheBeastMovie - Anti-Christian film to be released on 06-06-06

Anti-Christian Film ‘The Beast’ To Be Released On 06-06-06
by Deborah Menelaws of Bethel Cmmunications

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The makers of a virulently anti‑Christian film The Beast have deliberately chosen to release it on 6th June 2006 (06‑06‑06).


The film is being made in the US by VIVID films, and has a powerfully anti‑Christian plot line. A publicity blurb claims that there is ‘increasing historical proof that Christ never existed,’ a theory which they add is ‘gaining popularity’.


The plot involves a fundamentalist Christian pastor who disappears after he ‘stumbles across incontrovertible factual evidence that Christ never existed’. In searching for him, the films shows his daughter Danielle ‘struggling with her own need to believe that Christ existed’ and also combating ‘a band of fundamentalist Christians who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth’. In the film, they are portrayed as ‘trying to cover up Christianity’s best‑kept secret’.


HIDDEN


The film, it is said by its makers, is founded on ‘factual material normally hidden from public view by the efforts of Bible‑believing Christians’. It adds ‑ conveniently ignoring the historical testimony of Josephus, Tacitus, Suetonus, Phlegon and many other historians and writers ‑ that ‘there is no non‑Christian confirmation that Jesus Christ ever existed’.


The cast and film crew, have been ‘legally sworn to secrecy’ about other aspects of the film, which will be released on Tuesday 6th June in the US and will then come to Britain. See The Beast at www.thebeastmovie.com ( click here )for a horrible advert to buy your own 'Mark of the Beast' to stamp your friends - showing a child with it on his head. If you double click the child's face you will get into the website but it's all pretty awful...

The website has a forum for public comment which has been swamped by the most vile abusive references to Christ and to Christians. However, one Christian, Austin Smith, wrote in to say: “This website and movie is nothing but a work of Satan. The release date is 6/6/06 and I know it was put like that on purpose. But it may work against you, considering that 666 is the devils’ number. It’s no surprise to me that Satan himself inspired this movie to lie and deceive others. Whoever made this movie is my enemy. But I love them all the same because I learned to love my enemies”.


The film’s Director, Brian Flemming’s previous work has been called ‘jaggedly imaginative’ by the New York Times, ‘a parallel universe’ by the BBC and ‘immensely satisfying’ by USA Today. His films are said to have “a unique ability to spark cult‑like devotion in his fans”. He wrote and produced a popular musical, Bat Boy, featuring a creature that was half bat and half man. That has since been staged thousands of times throughout the world, in several languages. The musical has been called ‘a self‑contained religion’, and does indeed have thousands of cult adherents. He followed this up with a film about the murder of Bill Gates, the founder of the computer firm Microsoft. Gates had said through a spokesman: “I am very disappointed that a movie maker would do something like this”.


The Beast was supposedly carefully timed so that it took exactly 666 days to make. One prominent Wiccan high priestess in the US recently said: “Finally, a film that proves Jesus Christ never existed. I can’t wait”.
