A Rant about A Rant ((And Jim Carrey)

Jim Carey. I can’t say that I ever thought I’d be writing an article about Jim Carrey. Nevertheless, here I am writing about Jim Carrey. If memory serves correctly, his movie “Bruce Almighty” was the only movie I have ever seen him in. I’ve never followed his career much. But then again, I’ve never followed anyone’s movie career.

Believe me, we are truly in a sad place, if I am writing about Jim Carrey. In good conscience, I couldn’t let him off the hook for his animus against Christians and his most recent quips about us.**

I don’t know what Christian he’s speaking of when he says, “I think they’re going to find out once and for all that the Christian right has never been about morality, it’s been about holding on to power and using morality to do so.”

According to the very brief article, Mr. Carrey spends his time these days painting. I thank God for that. I rather have him home painting than out in the real world with the rest of us and his self-righteousness.

Honestly, I don’t personally have an issue with the Hollywood elites and their political commentary. While I understand many look up to them and might be impressed with their opinions, any “Star” in Hollywood I may have looked up to, undoubtedly have all passed away.

I must however, take issue with his claim that Christians are all about “holding on to power.” Then I must ask; in what world to Christian have power? What country is he eluding to?

As a Christian; as an ordained minister and reviewing the past half century in my head, I can’t discern how we Christians had power over anything.

We Christians have allowed God to be taken out of schools. We Christians have allowed all signs of our faith to be wiped away from public viewing. We Christians have allowed God’s ordaining of marriage between one man and one woman to dissolve before us.

We Christians now allow children as well as adults to think “they know better than God” in deciding whether they’re a male or a female. And, I can obviously go on and on.

It would do no good to continue that train of thought, because we Christians truly don’t have control over anything these days.
