Stumbled upon a new blog today when I went clicking that little 'Next Blog' button in the corner - now there's a good way to waste valuable time - anyway, Anyway is Mark Savage's contribution to the blogosphere and in his latest post 'Murphy's Score' he wrote a little piece on 'The Kingdom of heaven' that brought a smile to my face...
In the same vein, I guess, there are whispers abroad in Hollywood now as to whether the Medieval Crusades are a suitable subject for a blockbuster movie. Funny how nobody seemed to raise these objections when Gladiator came out, or any of the recent epics such as Troy. The Kingdom of Heaven is apparently the title of the Orlando Bloom film which tackles this difficult era in history, but can a mere film of ancient history really stir up old passions and inflame conflict between the communities?...:)
Not knowing the subject of the film until hearing about the controversy though, I wondered whether this might have been a nice gentle film about the wonder of childlike belief and enjoyment of the things of God which Jesus Christ commended us to emulate.
