Only fools dis films they have not seen

By Steve Evans

Ladies and gentlemen, step right up to witness the idiocy du jour -- the religious organization "Faith Driven Consumers" says it has conducted a survey showing 98 percent of its supporters are "not satisfied" with the upcoming movie Noah starring Russell Crowe and directed by Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan). Nevermind that the $125 million movie has not been released or that no one surveyed -- not one single person -- has actually seen the picture. But what truly makes this idiotic is the way the survey questions are phrased. In the interest of pleasing that Old Testament God, we'll just say the questions are a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Faith Driven Consumers is the same group of yahoos who support the crackers on Duck Dynasty when those hillbillies make public jackasses of themselves. At this point, Faith Driven Consumers has about as much credibility as the ingredients list on a hotdog stand at the county fair.

Slap the word "faith" on something and certain groups of people will march after it -- goosestepping their self-righteous asses off -- right over a cliff.

A tip o' the hat to Variety for breaking this story.
