Chinese Christian Organization Calls for Boycotting of Lust, Caution

Ang Lee's newest movie, Lust, Caution, is currently the talk of the town all over the place. Once again it has made into the Top 10 keywords for today and I have already talked about it twice, there is really no more explanation needed. (Se Jie, Ang Lee Wins Again)

However, not everyone is pleased with Ang Lee. Traditional Family Coalition, a Chinese Christian organization that is based in Sunnyvale, California, is calling for a boycott of the movie by all Chinese around the world because "the movie's prime selling point was the prolonged explicit sex scene of a Chinese actress and actor, and was only included for the shock-value."

Dr. Bill Tam, Executive Director of this organization, alls Ang Lee a "shameless modern-day traitor to the Chinese culture" because "Ang Lee uses a national shame to further his personal career ambition."

It's not new for Ang Lee anyway. When he made news two years ago with Brokeback Mountain, some Chinese Christian associations in the San Francisco Bay Area held a joint press conference to condemn Ang Lee and his work because they felt that the movie was promoting and legitimizing homosexuality.

Lee Ang does have many dangerous thoughts against the best humanity meant by our God.

however, we need to think twice about this. I agree we need to uphold God's will on earth.

Intolerant schmuck.

IN AMERICA, we have something called equal justice under the law for all. Proposition 8 will be overturned because it is inherently unconstitutional. This is why we have the separation of church and state. Bill Tam is a homophobe - probably because he has homosexual leanings himself.

Beliefs in religion are best kept out of government. That's how we do it in America.
