A Christian TV Review of Smallville?
A "Christian TV Review" of Smallville's Savior popped up in my Google Alerts this morning, and after reading it, I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. Check it out:

Smallville is a dangerous new soap opera for children that tells the story of Jewish-created comic book character, Superman, during his formative teenage years.

As our detailed researched proved months ago, the secret origins of all comics stems from latent cult cells worldwide whose sole purpose is to sneak dangerous media into the lives of our children. The newest medium they use to bring disease and death to the masses is comics. They try to use the word comic to make it look friendly, but mark my words, there is nothing comical about burning in hell for all time!

This episode of Superman was consistent with the standard comics agenda of being anti-America and therefore anti-morality and freedom. The name of the episode is “Savior”, with a capital S, and not once is our Holy Savior mentioned. That’s because Superman is Jewish.

Superman parades around as his normal self, Clark Kent, in this show and “saves” the lives of others by pommeling his enemies with incredible strength, searing their flesh with his fire eyes and sometimes even uses hand weapons to first bludgeon his adversaries to death, like much in this sick episode.

Children who tuned into the season premiere were treated to character Lois Lane magically teleporting in from the future, along with some other girl who wanted to kill her. They had a bloody catfight on a train and it went off rail, only to be caught by Superjewish Clark Kent.

To think a man can somehow capture a train is as preposterous as believing an alien savior could somehow fly to Earth on a ship and then be everyone’s protector.

If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, in this episode a bunch of other people from Superman’s “home planet” somehow magically appeared on Earth. The leader of them all is General Zod, who loves to yell “Kneel before Zod!” This is clearly meant to disrespect America’s faith by implying Zod thinks of himself as some sort of god.

Much of the episode was rather boring with soap opera talking and people lusting after one another without shame, but the sickest part of this episode occurred when Clark had a fight with the girl who tried to kill Lois Lane.

Clark Kent, the “savior”, took it upon himself to fight her with barn equipment — hacksaws, hoes, poking sticks and rakes — and then finally threw a large suspended motor into her torso. She died a slow, painful death and then Clark secretly buried her body.

This is a children’s show! How sick that they try to make such a sick act look like something a real hero would do. Could you imagine a brave firefighter from the NYPD who saved countless lives on 9/11 do such a thing? I don’t think so. And those men are real heroes, not this fake Jewish superevolution alien.

Parents, Smallville is a dangerous show about fornication, Jewish aliens and hiding murder evidence. If your children watch this every week they will just grow up to be social miscreants or far worse. Ban it from your home and for that matter, everything on the CW. That television station is sinister! Warning: The following video media contains offensive material. Please first pray and then have any women/children leave the room before reviewing.

Moral Rating: S (Sinister) for …
Cussing, lewdness, fitted leather, time travel, fake abilities, promotes spying/wiretaps, disrespects women, aliens, evolution propaganda, fake saviors, violence, comics


SOURCE

I know there are Christians on my flist who watch Smallville, but I've never seen them say anything like this. Yikes.

It made me laugh. A lot. :)

disrespects women, aliens,

AHAHAHA. I totally read that as 'disrespecting women and aliens'.

But seriously? "Jewish aliens"? I can't even tell if this review is meant to be serious.

Your icon is perfect. hee!

I wondered if it was a joke, too, but if you spend some time on that site, you'll see a lot of similar stuff. Craaazy!

What's horrifiying is how anti-semitic that review is.....I just ....WHAT?????
...........

.....Seriously????

*sigh* this is why Christians like me get a bad rep in the first place.....and for Rao's sake it's Major Zod!!!!

I have to laugh at this or else I'll cry
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 27th, 2009 08:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
The blatant anti-Semitism really is offensive. But most of it is pretty laughable.

The fact that he calls him General Zod makes me suspicious. Has he been reading comic books under the covers at night? ;)

I am laughing so hard there are tears in my eyes!!! Bwa ha ha ha.

Never before has my icon been more appropriate. *snicker*

fitted leather, evolution propaganda

!!!
Gold! This is comedic gold!!

The criteria for the moral rating was my favorite part. Bring on the cussing and the fitted leather! LOL! But he forgot to include the fornication, that was one of the best parts. ;)

I am not Christian, but I have to believe that the average Christian person does not believe this stuff.

While it's true that Superman was created by 2 Jewish men and his story is supposed to somewhat resemble the story of Moses (not Jesus), Clark Kent is not a Jewish character. Oy. I'd certainly be proud to have him as a member of the tribe though! :-)

Like starry_dawn said, I'm not completely positive that this article was written sincerely. On the other hand, there are some pretty crazy people out there, so you never know...
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 27th, 2009 09:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, there's nothing average about this guy. :)

We've had plenty of Jesus symbolism in the show, but I've never heard of anyone seeing a hidden agenda behind it before. I'd hate to see the world through his eyes.

Judging by the rest of that site, I do think it's real.
anakaliaandrea From: anakaliaandrea Date: October 27th, 2009 02:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
okay that's retarded. of course Jesus is our real savior, he saves our souls. but there's nothing wrong with saving lives!! savior as in saving/helping ppl. it's who he is. nothing wrong with that. some of these christians go way overboard....and it wasn't boring fyi! and i would never kneel b4 zod in real life IT'S A SHOW! get that through ur head!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 27th, 2009 09:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is the kind of stuff that leads to misunderstandings about faith. People point to the extremists and say that's what religion is about. It's really too bad. I feel sorry for people who see the world in such a negative light.

...a dangerous show about fornication, Jewish aliens and hiding murder evidence.

Weirdly that sentence sounds like an excellent pitch to a network for a new SciFi show. A show I would probably watch, I might add. *L*

I assure you as a Christian, that "article" (and I use the term loosely) is the writing of a complete whackjob. My junior pastor is a giant Superman fan, but I will enjoy telling him he's watching a morally rated S for Sinister show involving fitter leather. Seriously? Fitted leather is a sin now? I so need to start paying more attention in church.

Don't know if you looked further on that site but they also had an article on how hula hoops were created by hippies to turn children into hookers.

This review is very scary, very. Unfortunately, it contribute to the idea that Christians are crazy, uniformed, weirdos.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 27th, 2009 09:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know. This gives people an excuse to make sweeping generalizations that are way off base, and that's unfortunate. And it makes you wonder how many people who think that way are actually out there.

But still, I can't help but laugh, too.
dawnybee From: dawnybee Date: October 27th, 2009 03:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
I can't believe this isn't a joke. I don't know where to start, Jewish aliens? S for Sinister? and of course the big evol promotes spying/wiretaps. LOL!

Oh, crazies.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 27th, 2009 09:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
How does he know Clark is Jewish? Did he watch Prodigal and assume a little too much from the alley scene? ;)

There's another article on the site about why college students are failing at life. It's pretty crazy as well, but it does have some interesting pics illustrating college debauchery.

LOL
That's hilarious and weird at the same time.

//To think a man can somehow capture a train is as preposterous as believing an alien savior could somehow fly to Earth on a ship and then be everyone’s protector.//

She/He knows that SV is a show, right?? That comic books are based on fiction? She/He thinks that everyone who watches the show believes Clark Kent/The Blur/Superman exists for real? Oh, I wish! lol

I don't understand his/her problems with Zod. Zod is a dictator and it's natural for a dictator to think himself as a God.

I've met some religious people who are uncomfortable with anything that isn't a very literal interpretation of the real world. Anything that doesn't actually exist (meaning anything that wasn't created by God) is dangerous and suspect. I don't get that at all.
jeannev From: jeannev Date: October 27th, 2009 03:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
LMAO. That hilarious! Scary and sad, but hilarious all the same.

Oh, there are probably loons that think like this. There's always a lunatic fringe out there. But I think most Christians would just shake their heads, and quietly pray for this individual to seek help.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 27th, 2009 11:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
I totally agree. It's people like this who fuel the religious fanatic stereotypes, but I can't imagine there are very many as extreme as this guy.

But really, some of it is just too funny. And I love how he completely misrepresents what happens in the episode, especially in the fight between Clark and Alia.
theclexfactor From: theclexfactor Date: October 27th, 2009 03:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
LMAO!!!!!!!!!!

And yes, I'm a Christian.

First of all, they obviously know nothing about Superman nor did they watch the show at all because not only does Superman not kill, but Clark didn't kill anyone in this episode. Second, this isn't a children's show, but I guess that's neither here nor there. Third, WTF?

I can't do anything but laugh. If anything, most comics are about the triumph of Good over Evil, which is the ultimate Christian theme. And besides all that, they need to get a life and re-read their Bibles a little because they obviously keep conveniently forgetting that Jesus was Jewish.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 27th, 2009 11:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
It is pretty funny. And WTF is right!

His description of the fight between Clark and Alia was a bit much. The only weapon I saw Clark wield was a broomstick. Or "poking stick," I guess. LOL! And he didn't kill Alia. She did that to herself.

jewish aliens?

i'm sorry, i kinda giggled. and then skimmed the article.

there's alot of stuff with this kind of slant against Harry Potter too.

and real Wicca. *sigh*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 28th, 2009 12:06 am (UTC) (Link)
I know! Pretty crazy.

I've run into religious fundamentalists in our school district who want to ban books, everything from Harry Potter to Little Red Riding Hood, and who object to us showing Disney animated movies during rainy day recesses. One year they even convinced the School Board to forbid all Halloween celebrations by arguing that it was a religious holiday for Satanists. *rolls eyes*

After reading this, I couldn't help but go and poke around the Source site. All I can say is the author is buckets of crazy!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 28th, 2009 12:07 am (UTC) (Link)
I looked around, too. Pretty unbelievable, isn't it?
whimsywinx From: whimsywinx Date: October 27th, 2009 11:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I couldn't read all of it. Like you, I didn't know whether I should laugh hysterically or throw something. I'm going to choose "laugh" because it helps my karma.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 28th, 2009 12:12 am (UTC) (Link)
Whimsy! *glomps you*

Can you imagine going through life that way? I can't believe in a God who would want that.

Did you watch White Collar? If so, did you love it? I did. And Mark Sheppard! Again! He truly is in EVERYTHING.
