Christmas With A Capital C Trailer

The weather’s growing a little colder, and before we know it, the holidays will be upon us. One of the seasonal highlights this year will be Christmas With A Capital C, starring a Baldwin brother and the Bundys’ neighbor from Married With Children, an insane film about spiteful atheists attempting to hijack Christmas. This is going to be big among the tea-partier crowd in three months.

    Umm, spiteful atheists have repeatedly tried to hijack Christmas since at least Antonio Gramsci in the early 1900s.

    /I’m not religious. But I am a stickler for accuracy.

      No kiddin! I live here and still *facepalm* regularly over this shit.

      roughly one quarter of the US population falls into the category of ardent or extreme conservative evangelical christian…who are coached and trained to perceive any resistance to their spreading of the faith as an attack…not as a defense by the actual victims…the people who have to deal with their batshit looney tunes BS day and night.

      My opinion of the Romans and their policy on the use of lions has been changed drastically since childhood. I was a good catholic kid and they sounded awful once upon a time…but they’re actually looking like a last ditch act of total exasperation now that I’ve spent a lifetime dealing with these bozos.

      Your statement makes no sense at all. Atheists wouldn’t appreciate it and Jesus Christ wouldn’t appreciate it.

    Christmas was an amalgamation of pre-Christian, pagan solstice & winter festival celebrations (and placed on a date that has more to do with said celebrations than any scholarly attempt to figure out when Jesus might have been born) and newfound Christianity. Now, you can throw in a heavy dose of celebrating modern materialism, with Christmas being the most important economic event of the year in many western countries.

    Throughout most of Christian history, the seriously religious set has rejected the celebration of Christmas because of its pagan origins & the inconsistency of many of the celebrations with Christian virtue. Christmas was a relatively minor holiday in the US until the 1800s, with many of the protestants that settled here being of sects that rejected the celebration.

    Point of the rambling post being: it’s funny to see people trying to “reclaim” a holiday that the religious have historically tried to reject. It’s particularly funny since most of these people owe their roots to puritanism, which not only rejected Christmas, but also banned it for a short period of time in some areas of the early American colonies.

    This production cannot be sanctioned by Yahweh with casting like that. Who does that leave, if it wasn’t God making this movie? Hm… could it be… SATAN?!

    You’re right about us Yanks. I completly agree. Although I wouldn’t say you fellas are without your share of whack-jobs in Brittania. You have “old school” whack-jobs and better accents (excluding Cockney).

    oh totally, we’re eccentric as fuck. but to my sensibilities that trailer looks like a spoof. you just would not be able to get people here to take that mawkish shit seriously. as alisdair campbell (aide to tony blair) put it, “we don’t do god.”

    Looks awfully warm for an Alaska December. Ironic that someone in the trailer mentions how the country was started by Christians yet our government, for the first 60 years, never took a Christmas break because Christmas was viewed as a British holiday.

    • AlaskaLaw

      Actually it was filmed in Seward last year. I know, a friend of mine played the Minister.

      • DougI

        Thanks for the info. I may give it a watch just to see Alaska again. I haven’t lived up there in awhile though, you know, back when winters were actually cold for more than two weeks. Any idea on what time of the year it was actually filmed?

    • celticdenefew

      That movie was actually filmed in Seward, AK. And it’s not a horrible movie, in the end people treat each other with respect and the Christians *act* their faith instead of boasting it and everyone gets along. I just watched it to see my town and the people I know who were in it, but it wasn’t as horrible as most of us thought it would be.
      I think it was filmed in the end of Nov, cause the snow was late. And that was Daniel Baldwin.

  • Pantheisticsolipsist

    Not to nitpick a specific line, but you guys have gotten down the hypocrisy of the existence of Christmas itself…one of the characters yells “Christians happen to have started the United States of America” — which embodies a current HUGE fallacy underlying oh so much of the current mixture of politics and fundamentalist Christianity.

    “This would be the best of all possible worlds if there were no religion in it!”
    -John Adams

    “Lighthouses are more useful than churches.”
    -Benjamin Franklin

    “Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man.”
    -Thomas Jefferson

    and finally, in a legal document

    “…the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion…”
    -The Treaty of Tripoli (overseen by Joel Barlow, the former chaplain of George Washington’s revolutionary army)

      Firstly, I’d like to say that this movie looks stupid and I probably won’t see it despite the fact that I am Christian and grew up in Seward, AK. Secondly, I know that “Christmas” mainly came from a pagan holiday refitted for Roman Christianity. And thirdly, all of the personal quotes you have listed are taken out of context and you should be ashamed of yourself for re-posting quotes you found on the internet without checking their background first.

      Let’s Google them, shall we?

      For the John Adams quote:
      http://www.eadshome.com/FoundersQuotesoutofContext.htm

      Benjamin Franklin’s actual quote from “Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Benjamin Franklin” (1818). After describing a narrow escape from shipwreck:
      “The bell ringing for church, we went thither immediately, and with hearts full of gratitude, returned sincere thanks to God for the mercies we had received: were I a Roman Catholic, perhaps I should on this occasion vow to build a chapel to some saint, but as I am not, if I were to vow at all, it should be to build a light-house.”

      Thomas Jefferson’s quote is also misquoted and out of context. If TJ hated Christianity so much, why would he have written the The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth (or Jefferson Bible, for short). Granted, he did have a problem with some sects, but he was far from an atheist.

      The 4th quote is true. The USA is NOT a nation founded and ruled by any single Christian church. But you cannot take that to say that most of those who founded it were not christian and lived christian principles. If you read the treaty, it is said that the dominance of Christianity in America should not “ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the [United States and any Mahometan nation]”

      I’m not trying to jump down your throat here, I’m just asking you to check your facts. Just because someone said it on the internet, it doesn’t make it true.

    Christmas is a holiday that is dying out. That it has been thoroughly corrupted by materialism (which this movie is an example in its own way) is only part of the story.Spirituality, not religion as we know it, is what is on the rise. You can be an atheist and be spiritual. The future will see evolution of consciousness and awareness increasingly become the goal. Sacred days that are barely registered today will be recognized for their benefit in assisting the process of achieving profound spiritual states.”The Gospel story is about resurrection. Easter will be one of the three major Spiritual Festivals and Christmas and Good Friday will slowly die out of our consciousness. Resurrection will be the emphasised goal for mankind; resurrection out of matter into Spirit, which makes one a liberated Master.”- Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom, Benjamin Creme

    Does anyone else feel like this is unintentionally (especially the full trailer) the story of two arrogant jerks who never got over their high school rivalry and are using the holiday season as their personal battle field against each other?

    I see the people this film is sending up are getting their knickers in a twist.

    Good.

    It’s not like militant atheists don’t spend their lives sneering, belittling and mocking Christians, so I say “If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out”.
