Sunday is THE MOST segregated day of the week in any church. Some folks don't want blacks in their pews or on their T.V. screens. The Blind side is a wonderful movie and it shows the true kindness of God.
This world has gotten so evil that it will find any excuse to support it's hidden agenda!

This wasn't about race it was about calling a movie a christian movie when it had bad language and a racial slur in it. I liked this movie and it is has a great message.
I do think that Rodney went too far with this. He has been on this campaign for a couple of years. I think that it could have been in the christian book stores with a banner that states it is a good theme but it does have these issues.
You can and do hear racial slurs and VERY bad language everywhere you go. It isn't uncommon.
I do wish that all movies would NOT put in all the sex and language in the movies. It really isn't necessary. But it is the world we live in sadly.
And most churches are mixed as far as all races go to them. And I think that is great. God don't see color or race and no one else should either.

Sadly, we don't live in a perfect world. While many wish we did, the ones who think we do live with blinders on. Pretending not to see things for the way they are. The passion of Christ was a hard to watch but much needed reality check that had no common vulgar or derogatory language and yet, crucially blasted by some. You just can't please evrybody!
Christians need to stick with the commandments and laws of God. Trying to mingle and swirl with the world is a dangerous game. We can not serve two masters, we'll either love the one and hate the other. God said that we are to be ye separated from the cares of this world.
