After his extraordinarily successful “documentary” detailing how America needs to return to the values of the Pilgrims that I’ve never heard of, Kirk Cameron is back and the former Growing Pains star now has a leading roll in a film about the “War on Christmas.”
I’m picturing the Easter Bunny, dressed like Darth Vader, leading a Empire Strikes Back-type assault on the North Pole while Santa hurries to load up his sled to avoid capture from the evil Easter Empire. The bunnies could look like storm troopers and the elves could be wearing rebel-style uniforms and . . . this needs to be a thing. Someone get on this, ASAP.
Sadly, Cameron’s movie looks much less interesting:
While speaking to Glenn Beck’s outlet, The Blaze, Cameron said that he was trying to save the holiday that starts sometime in August and ends in January from the evil folks who want to “snuff out the holy root” of Christmas.
While I tried to reach out to him regarding the attack on his birthday, Sol Invictus was unavailable for comment.
Cameron reassures use that it’s not an “angry rant about the culture war,” though; it’s a celebration of “the spirit of the holiday season” while being an angry rant about the culture war:
The “Growing Pains” actor, who has gone on to direct and produce numerous faith-themed films, said that atheist activists’ attempts to diminish the true nature of the holiday by taking aim at nativities and other symbols of faith amounts to political correctness run amok.
“[It is] offensive to 90 percent of people in our country who want to see nativity scenes and who know the birth of the Christ child is the fundamental root of Christianity, which is the ideology that built this country,” Cameron said.
“Saving Christmas” isn’t an “angry rant about the culture war,” he said. Instead, it’s a celebration of the holiday and of the Christian faith.
It should be noted that Cameron’s last film detailed how America desperately needs the values of the Pilgrims. I almost don’t have it in me to break it to the man that the Pilgrims, who were staunch Puritans, rejected what they called “Foolstide” in its entirety. If you’re going to argue a return to a certain set of values, doesn’t it behoove you to know what those values are, first?
