The movie Corpus Christi

The movie Corpus Christi
I have received an email about this movie(The movie Corpus Christi ). I haven't yet seen the movie but I hope some body can explain the intention of this movie. Since this email is circulating wayback early year 2000. I don't have any intention for debate rather for everyones info only.
Here is the email:

The movie Corpus Christi is due to be released this June to Aug. 2009I totally agree with the message below.Let's stand for what we believe in and stop the mockery of Jesus Christ our Savior. If everybody do what they believe to be right against theirreligion, where do we stand as Christians?At the risk of a bit of inconvenience, I'm forwarding this to all I thinkwould appreciate it too. Please help us prevent such offenses against ourLord. It will take you 4 minutes! If you are not interested, and do not havethe 4 Minutes it will take to do this, please don't complain when God doesnot have time for you, because He is far busier than we are.


A disgusting film set to appear in America later this year depicts Jesus andhis disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theatresfor a while. It's called Corpus Christi ' which means 'The Christ Body.'It's a revolting mockery of our Lord. But we can make a difference. That'swhy I am sending this e-mail to you. Will you please add your name to thebottom of the list at the end of this e-mail? If you do, we will be able toprevent this film from showing in America and South Africa.Hey, it's worth a shot! Apparently, some regions in Europe have alreadybanned the film. All we need is a lot of signatures!Remember, Jesus said 'Deny Me on earth and I'll deny you before my Father'.Hit forward, and when it comes up, delete any e-mail addresses, fill in whomyou want to send it to, scroll down to the last name and add yours to thelist.

I hope these petitions prevent the showing of such a disgusting portrayal of our Lord and Savior. I have forwarded this email to many friends and family and hope we can prevent this movie from showing in the USA.

People need to research and try to find their own minds. One of the problems with society is the angry mobs. One thing is wrong and they just follow like sheep(good little Christians), not even double checking the information.

Is there really such a movie? Or just another online hoax?

Online hoax - e-mail spam. it's been circulating since 2001

Jessie said...

Well, weather it is spam or hoax, we as christian have to be open mind and not be mislead if there is such movie. As I remember before the showing of the movie Da Vinci Code Christians all over the world try to protest. It is up for us to judge.

Make sure you do your research as there appears to be no news of this movie, and I am a Christian. What needs to happen is for us to take back the kingdoms of this world and return them to God as Christian Youth rise up in infect our society into taking America back to God.

I agree that we shouldn't believe everything we hear. But at the same time is the reality of living in the "last days" not scary? The mere fact that ppl even harbour such thoughts is enough to force every christian to take head and ask themselves: What am I doing to fullfill my purpose? How can I make a difference?

http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/petition/gayjesus.asp Check it out - no such movie!!! The rumors have been around since the early 70s - NO SUCH MOVIE!!!! I do wish that people would check these things out before sending alarms around. I love Jesus and I resent rumors about a non-existent movie which would be offensive about Him!

I have never seen this email until this month. I did a bit of research and found that this email has been around since around 2000. I was shocked, to begin with, that ANYONE would portray Christ, or any Christian, into such a position. I feel the ones that would do this ... has no fear of GOD. I am saved, by the Grace of God, and I know how cunning Satan can be. Maybe he is testing the field to see just how much opposition or support this movie gets. IF Satan gets enough support...he will release something like this. So Christians? ...... keep speaking out!

This is simply a hoax. This is why it impossible to find a single review, advert or showtime for the movie. Even before the Internet, this hoax circulated in the 1980s. This leads me to ask:

Why are so many Christians so quick to accept as truth things that can so easily be proved false? It seems as if anything that reinforces a certain worldview is acceptable, even if it is a falsehood.

Why do Christians readily forward messages that use spiritually manipulative jargon, such as “if you deny me...” Using threats to get someone to forward an email seems rather ungenerous at best.

This is not true...check snoops.com and truthorfiction.com

FYI
Snoops is one man in Cal. (liberal Dem.)I hear. He is not a big company, like people tend to think. He may not be the all seeing answer to everything. Why do people believe everything that this man says. Could be... he has an agenda of his own. Just something to think about.

Anonymous said...

"Snoops is one man in Cal."

So is the idiot who writes these facticious emails, I imagine.

Other reliable sources back up the claim that this email was a hoax. I had the same email in 2001, and again in 2004. You could do your own research (thinking for yourself without being told what to think is an option!) and look on IMDB.com or a site like that to see if the movie is being planned, for instance.

Also, it is consistent with all those other emails that contain lies to provoke fear and angry-mob-like behavior among Christians. Remember the 'Obama is a muslim' one and the 'the koran predicts 9/11' email that contained a quote that was completely made up?

This just makes Christians look stupid. I would suggest that it is more likely to be an atheist kid in Cal who writes those emails trying to discredit Christias and doing a good job. There's been a spate of emails recently containing lies like this, and it is sadly my fellow Christians that seem to be the first to forward them. What does that say about us?

In Romans chapter 1, the Bible places gossip (verse 29) alongside the sin of homosexuality (verse 27) which suggests gossip is just as immoral in God's eyes. Gossip though email is still gossip. Perhaps it was someone keen to expose the hypocracy in our own hearts.

"...for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things." Romans chapter 2 verse 1

Anonymous said...

We really do need to be ready for such things as this movie if it is really real! It's not gossip as one comment said! As Christians we have to be ready for Satins attacks! This could be one of them. Just like in the Oscars last night. One homosexual writer said they would all have equal rights and be able to married. That is against the Bible and everything America was founded upon! God help us all! Hope he doesn't turn his back on us! God Bless America! The thing about Obama ~ We will just have to wait and see!

Julie said...

The above comment, written after presumably reading all the above evidence just makes one despair of fellow Christians' ability to think rationally and react appropriately - of course we must be vigilant but mob-like vigilante?! The internet is a great tool for us to monitor what's going on but we need to engage our brains and slapping 'God Bless America' on an opinion doesn't validate it..

Anonymous said...

I'm really scared, waiting for my "Satin" to attack me :( :( :(

Anonymous said...

As people have said, check snopes, iie may be one written by one man, so if you don't think he knows enough, why is there no listing on imdb.com and why does a google search only bring up sites telling me it's a hoax?
Hmmmm
And my suspicions were raised when the email said God was busier than me so I had to forward the email. I mean....come on.
His grace is sufficient and he cares about the sparrows. He has more than 4 minutes for me. :)

I have seen christian persecutions in India and china. Priests are being killed and nuns being raped in pubic and I have seen the TV show (naked archeologists)2 year back in this lentern season that is reported Jesus had a baby boy ,to prove that they picked DNA from the Jesus coffin (believed to be Jesus)did the DNA test in Canada.but couldn't prove that

and again in this Lentern season 2009 I saw the TV show about Pagon Jesus Christ(story saying that pagon Jesus was believed to be lived in Egypt)

and I have heard the story from the book about Jesus had learned the magic from the Egyptian when he was in Egypt and he had gone to India to upgrade his magics.

After all these happend,
Still do you believe that the movie like Corpus Christie wouldn't come in the future?

Jessie said...

In my opinion in the future there will be a film. Just like the De Vinci Code, the author have either confuse the brethren, to twist the christian faith or to earn by capturing world attention.
As a christian we must stand firm for our belief.

Anonymous said...

As christians, we need to stand firm on our faith. Yes i agree with the last comment. there could be such movies made in the future. But that will be a test of what you believe and stand for. No religion has been tried and tested,and has prolonged as much as the Christianity.

I don´t care if the movie is real or not. I got the message and email it to ALL I KNOW. Somehow we must show our support among christians as we have been attacked through the media with dirty stories about priests and pastors.

I urge you to be caredul about what you read on www.snopes.com because the person who runs the site has backed movies such as thegodmove which claims Christ never lived. Here is a qoute from the go movie website “Legend. Barbara and David P. Mikkelson, the creators of Snopes.com, discuss the creepy lessons behind a certain urban legend popular among Christians.” Be careful who you believe.

There is a movie called Corpus Christi which more of a documentary. It is full of "biblical scolars" who take the opprotunity to make a mockary of Christ. While they do not protray Him as gay they do state that the Bible is inaccurate and Christ wasn't who he said he was.

They said the same thing about Mel Gibson's movie that depicted Christ in such a raw manner...but then look how many people both Christian's and not who went to see it.

The Lord gives us the ability to think on our own and to have an open mind...its up to us to decide whether we accept someone else's interpetations or our own.

I hope each one of us will enlighten and given the wisdom to understand clearly what we are watching.

Pay attention folks.

For the past few years _www.snopes.com_ (http://www.snopes.com/) has
positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell all final word' on any
comment, claim and email.

But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind
snopes.com. Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda
makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run
by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators
and researchers, no team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation
that began as a hobby.

David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California
started the website about 13 years ago - and they have no formal background
or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity
believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years
people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish
motivation?

The reason for the questions - or skepticism's - is a result of snopes.com
claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when in fact
they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were
not really investigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of various issues.

I can personally vouch for that complaint.

A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted
a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across the
Internet, 'supposedly' the Mikkelson's claim to have researched this issue
before posting their findings on snopes.com. In their statement they claimed
the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign,
when in fact nothing of the sort 'ever' took place.

I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking
he would want to get to the bottom of this and I gave him Bud Gregg's contact
phone numbers - and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big
exec's at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to speak with him
about it. He never called Bud.. In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg no one from
snopes.com ever contacted anyone with State Farm. Yet, snopes.com issued
a statement as the 'final factual word' on the issue as if they did all their homework
and got to the bottom of things - not!

Then it has been learned the Mikkelson's are very Democratic (party) and extremely
liberal. As we all now know from this presidential election, liberals have a purpose
agenda to discredit anything that appears to be conservative has been much criticism
lately over the internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson's liberalism revealing
itself in their website findings. Gee, what a shock?

So, I say this now to everyone who goes to _www.snopes.com_ (http://www.snopes.com/) to get what they think to be the bottom line acts...
'proceed with caution.' Take what it says at face value and nothing more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to and read the sources for yourself. Plus, you can always Google a subject and do the research yourself.

It now seems apparent that's all the Mikkelson's do. After all, I can personally vouch from
my own experience for their 'not' fully looking into things.

After reading the comments, I am saddened that fellow Christians would say "it doesn't matter if it's true or not Satin is testing us, so lets spread it" (not an exact quote, a mishmash from more than one comment). You're sheep, all of you. And not in any good way.

I hate spam in my email, and I'm sure most of you do, so please, do your 2 minutes of research before forwarding something.

If there is a movie coming this year sometime about Jesus and his disciples being gay, we as christians need to come up with a way to protest this. Our Jesus, Lord and Savior went through enough when he gave his life on the cross for you and I. He shouldn't have to be drug through the dirt again. We as christians need to do a lot of praying and stand up against Satan especially in these days. Things like this is what excited the devil and we need to smash him in the ground where he belongs.

I have not seen this movie either but have gotten the e-mail bellow from my grandmother who is just outraged that something like this could ever be made. I don't know what to do everyone is welcome to their own opinions. I personally will make my own stand and just not see this movie. It is not worth loosing sleep over or hurting people. All will be taken care of in the end.....

The movie Corpus Christi is due to be released this June to August.

This disgusting film set to appear in America later this year and it depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theatres for a while. It's called Corpus Christi ' which means 'The Christ Body.' It's a revolting mockery of our Lord. But, we can make a difference. That's why I am sending this e-mail to you. If you do send this around, we may be able to prevent this film from showing in America and South Africa ...

Apparently, some regions in Europe have already banned the film. We need a lot of prayers and a lot of e-mails.

As a Christian I want to take a stand in what I believe in and stop the mockery of Jesus Christ our Savior.

At the risk of a bit of inconvenience, I'm forwarding this to all I think would appreciate it.. Please help us prevent such offenses against our Lord. It will take you less than 2 minutes to pass it on.

This is the kind of propaganda that is put out by extreme groups to keep their followers from straying, building a bigger cult like population. They put out this propaganda so people with an open mind, who may have a different view on history or a different though on life, look like they are wrong and against the "Good " that only they believe in. These extreme groups have no tolerance for other beliefs and believe they are the only one who have the right answers and are right in everything they believe. This is why there is so much hate in the world, we must allow others to have a different belief and not force our own beliefs onto others. I for one would love to see another point of view on Jesus and not just hear the same interpretation of the bible that is being taught in churches today. If the church would teach people have an open mind and not follow everything blindly, this world would be a better place to live. That being said, this is a hoax.

And the Word of God declares if our gospel is hid it is hid to them that are lost!!!! This is beyond abominable and God is going to bring swift judgement on this world!!!! I take heed today to the warning of God's judgement!!! I can no longer act as if God is not going send his wrath to those who play with Him. He is a Holy God!!!!! If say we love Him and don't stand for Him we lie!!!! The devil is the biggest liar and God is going to show it!!!! I rebuke this movie and all of the ones that are involved. I pray the convicting power of God overtake you and save you from a BURNING HELL!!!

www.imdb.com -- normally a very reliable info source on movies has no record of any such film.

The wikipedia article about the play has no mention of any such film.

Mercy! If you people got half as worked up over poverty and war as you do about sex you might actually deserve to call yourself "Christians."

This email is another way for Satan to get attention as This Movie never existed and lets put an end to having this circulated...
