A lot of Christians (mostly Evangelical) have been up in arms about the soon-to-be-released Hollywood movie, "Noah". Their point of contention is that the film's narrative diverges considerably from the story presented in the Old Testament's Book of Genesis. As a consequence, the film's producer/distributor, Paramount, has been forced to add a disclaimer to the "Noah" trailer. Three things things crossed my mind as I thought of this controversy.
When all is said and done this controversy will pass. It will be talked about and debated for a while, Paramount will try to please Christian dissenters because it is more interested in making money than in promoting Art, but the controversy, like that surrounding "The Last Temptation of Christ" will all be forgotten. And life will go on while we await another controversy.
