No Avatar in Beliefnet Movie Awards

As the 82nd Acadamy Awards draws near, popular spirituality site Beliefnet.com has delivered its winners in three categories for best films of the year.

The Road” took best spiritual film,

“Precious” and “Up” tied for best inspirational film,

while “More Than a Game” won best spiritual documentary.

And while the 2009 blockbuster “Avatar” is nominated for nine Oscars, including Best Picture, the film has been overlooked completely by the folks at Beliefnet.

According to USA Today’s Religion post, Beliefnet may be taking the high road on this one. Much controversy has surrounded James Camerons masterpiece since its release.

Members of the Evangelistic “Religious Reich” have been slamming the film since before its release. In a recent sermon on the topic of Satan in the world, Mark Driscoll, founder of Seattles Mars Hill Church says;

…and if you don’t believe me, go see avatar, the most demonic, satanic film I’ve ever seen. That any Christian

could watch that without seeing the overt demonism is beyond me.

He goes on to claim that the film is actually trickery of the Devil himself;

The whole thing is new age,

satanic, demonic paganism, and people are just stunned by the visuals. Well, the visuals are amazing because

satan wants you to emotionally connect with a lie.

“Demonic Paganism”? Well, anytime the Righteous Right threatens fire and brimstone, it’s a sure fire “must- see” for me!  Thanks Mark.

Now, go out and see Avatar.
