Faith at Altitude

Religion and spirituality in the shadow of Pikes Peak

Friday, March 24, 2006


As we head into the weekend, spiritually minded movie-goers might want to check out "V for Vendetta," the latest stylistic piece of popcorn philosophy from the Wachowski brothers ("The Matrix"). The main villian is apparently the caricature of a right-wing religious zealot who has gained control of the British government and is trying to stamp out, among other things, homosexuality and Islam.

Some might think the movie might not play that well at, say, Focus on the Family. And, for the most part, it doesn't. Still, even this Focus review indicates that the movie wrestles with issues well worth wrestling with. And, religion and politics aside, faith rarely lends itself neatly to caricaturization.
