Hipster Christian Media Critic Trolls Bible For Being Unrealistic And Too "Christian-y"
The only thing Graham Richards enjoys more than giving crushing reviews of Christian movies and music is reading his bruising reviews of Christian movies and music. For nearly two decades, Richards has made a solid hobby out of poking fun at art made by Christians. He has a huge following among hipster Christians who love to troll movies made by Christians while promoting the high brow vulgarity and pronography coming out of Hollywood.
Recently Richards reviewed the Bible as he would any other piece of work that comes from the Church. Here is what he blogged…
“I’ll admit… it is the first time I have read the Bible. And I basically skimmed it. Like most of the sugary second rate art coming out of the Church, the story is too predictable, and it ultimately turns out alright. God creates a perfect world. Evil enters. Humans go astray. God sends a deliverer. Some humans respond. God destroys evil. Saved humans live happily ever after.
I mean, come on. Sure, there is some drama and conflict in the pages. But even then, it is often unrealistic. A young man has dream of success. Family hates him. Throws him in a well. Sells him into slavery. He is sent to prison on false allegations. BOOM! He helps the king interpret a dream that saves the nation. He is a hero. Saves the world. Really?!?
It is like the Kendrick brothers got tired of making modern family issue movies and decided to write a history book. If Casting Crowns wrote a book… it would be the Bible.”
Graham’s blog review of the best selling book of all time has received 73 likes and 14 shares in the last month. One of his followers (Desiree_76) commented, “I’m glad I’m not the only one who was never impressed with the Bible. I encourage people to read anything by Donald Miller, Rob Bell, or Kim Kardashian. These people tackle the real issues and don’t always give you a workable solution. If I want sugary sweet, I will go to Fresh Market and get some organic timberweed syrup. I’ll probably read the Bible again when I watch another Kirk Cameron movie. He could learn a lot from Jason Momoa.”
