OMG! Does CEO really mean "Cambodia Evangelicals Online"?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I fully agree with you that such a reach of logic is a bit absurd.
By the way since you seem so hurt that I referred to your views about Mass Media and Propaganda "Naive", I point out here your hypocrisy when you call my interpretations of Apocalypto "Absurd". Slight double standard eh?

By the way it now occurs to me that your "Run Aztec Run" mantra is even more absurd than I realized, considering there is not one Aztec in the movie (it was based on Mayan culture not Aztec) :facepalm:

I am wondering now if you even watched the movie. It seems you are also not reading the sources I am providing you. This is the only explanation I have for the same circular arguments you keep making. For that matter, I am even wondering if you actually are reading my posts --- considering your tendency to misrepresent them.

Do carry on :popcorn:

Where did I ever bash the bible? Please show one example.

Just thank Dog there were no mass shootings in Apocalypto, or you'd have a real argument on your hands. :lol:
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

No again --- you are trying to put words into my mouth. Since you still cannot get it right I will post (yet again) my views:

"I have never stated "The Jews Run Hollywood". I find that argument to be overly simplistic and treating American Jews as a single entity, while in fact they have many diverse perspectives. What i did say was this. It is not "Anti-Semitic" to suggest that Jewish and specifically Pro-Israel forces pretty much dictate what Americans see when it comes to news and entertainment imagery about how religious/ethnic groups, faiths, and middle eastern politics are portrayed."

Emphasis added now.

Why is this so hard for you to understand?

Pro-Israel Groups are not Jewish only --- there are Fundamentalist Christian Groups (Typically rapture oriented), corporate and military-industrial interests, political interests (since the "Red Menace" faded away ---- although it now looks like they are trying to bring it back with Putin --- another topic I guess).

The end result is that Muslims and Arabs are consistently demonized in the media and Jews are almost always presented as sympathetic characters.

Do you actually deny this?

I could off the top of my head list at least 100 films with heavy anti Muslim / Anti Arab sterotypes.

Can you give me even three examples of Hollywood movies where Jews are portrayed negatively?

So far you have mentioned only "Passion of Christ" which was a manufactured controversy by the ADL and had as many Jewish Protagonists as antagonists. Have you considered that Jesus, Mary, Simon, and others who wept and gave assistance to Jesus were also Jewish?

Again: :facepalm:

Here's a bit of neurotheology, just for interest (study funded by Satanists, fornicators, drug addicts and such like of course):

Ha -- Even though I believe in God, that is an interesting read.

Richard Dawkins has brainwaves?
