Controversial Priestcraft Post

Why do people get down on me for not watching LDS culture movies? No I have not seen Singles Ward, or RM, or Church Ball or whatever. Why don't I watch them? Because they're poor quality movies. Every time I give in I get hit over the head with another dumb movie. Generally I am really picky when it comes to the types of movies that I will watch. I want rottentomatoes.com to tell me it is good. If not, I am not interested.

Also, I resent the idea that those that buy the Deseret Book knock-offs of board games like Settlers of Catan, or the Mormon culture movies, are somehow more pious. I'm not knocking on those people, as most of my family are those people. But deep down, in a hyper-religious sense, it smacks of priestcraft! I know I could very well get hammered for this one, but wait. These people are preaching for gain! They are playing on the culture's spirituality and the predominant faith to make money. What else is it? TELL ME! And in the case of many of those movies, it is poor quality priestcraft. The worst kind in my opinion.

Addenda: Lacey wants me to specify the reference to my family. I meant EXTENDED family. She in no way wants to be lumped in with my vague family reference. she agrees with my assessment of low quality mormon priestcraft culture, and furthermore claims that she came up with it first. (Not true)

It's not priest craft, its capitalism. And if you say capitalism is priest craft then your a socialist!
I too dislike the idea of someone, either corporate, or personal using religion as a capitalistic venue!
I would say I'm defiantly more capitalistic than most, but there are boundaries people.
I'm not even one for boundaries! Obviously! But there are lines you just do not cross. Lines like Murder, rape, poor quality church movies, murder....I can't think of anything thing else. But there are lines you just do not cross!...EVER
... Like Charlie, once you cross that line, you can't go back. Even though you want to, you can't. WORSTE MOVIE EVER!!!
