Christian Post Finds Christian Themes in Vulgar Blockbuster, DeadPool

JD Hall of Pulpit & Pen lays into Christian Post, a so-called Christian site that has the spiritual discernment of a box of rocks. Unfortunately many Christians visit CP to get the latest news and views. Hall writes:

You might have heard of the blockbuster Marvel movie that is now in theaters, Deadpool. Unlike most Marvel movies based upon comic book characters, this film received an ‘R’ rating for its sexual content, on-screen nudity, and vulgarity. Should it surprise you that Christians with a culture-redemption complex are now finding “Christian themes” laced among the coarse jesting, debauchery and displays of fornication?

According to Plugged-In, Deadpool contains 75 f-words, 40 s-words and a whole bunch of others that would probably make your grandma blush and Jesus angry. In fact, Jesus’ name is take in vain numerous times. The movie is laced with beer (both at bars and strip clubs) and drugs, including references to cocaine. The chief protagonist is seen in sexual activity with a female co-star repeatedly, who happens to portray a stripper and prostitute. There’s full frontal nudity, as well as bare breasts, and the lead character’s backside is shown, as well as another guy’s. There’s talk of masturbation, sex toys, porn and oral sex. A stuffed animal is abused, for crying out loud.
