The lorax offended me

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
In the opening music scene, they sang a verse that says " we thank The Lord for all we've got". I'm not Christian so I turned the movie off immediately. I don't want that crap crammed down my children's throats. Why can't they just leave that out of it???

Wow I feel sorry for your kids. I'm disgusted you did that...one little line in a song isn't being "shoved down their throat" its the jahovias witness banging on your door you need to run from. I'm not religious and loved that movie so do my kids. Don't be a sensitive idiot.

Yeah..it would.

Quoting embersparkle:

Yeah because that would be such a tradegy if your children believed in God.

I'm sure I wouldn't know. Maybe because it really isn't a big deal at all, and tolerance for all religions should make a single verse a nonissue. Eh.

I'm curious though, so ill ask again. Do you celebrate Christmas? Easter?


Quoting Anonymous:

Then why did they sing that verse? They could have said " we are thankful for all we've got"



Quoting P.N._Guin:

The Lorax isn't really a religious movie.... At all.

I mean I'm all for each religion having their owned themed movie, but they should warn you
