... from the movie "Saved"
I just watched this movie again, and I wanted to share a couple of gems:
-- After the "Christian Jewels" attempt to kidnap her and perform an exorcism, and ringleader Hillary Faye throws a Bible at her, hitting her in the back, and shouts "I AM FILLED WITH CHRIST'S LOVE!" Main character Mary picks up the Bible
, looks at Hillary Faye and says
, "This is NOT a weapon!"
-- To the close minded, evangelicalesque pastor ("Are you down with G-O-D?") after he was responsible for sending her boyfriend to "Mercy House" because he was gay (for de-gayification), and for trying to convince her mom to have her sent there because she's pregnant, Mary says: "If God wants us all to be the same, why did he make us so different?"
-- And maybe not as deep, but funny, the pastor is explaining to the "Christian Jewels" that they need to intervene in Mary's life because she's obviously struggling, one of the girls named Tia (played by the wonderful Heather Mattarazzo) says, "You mean, like, shoot her?" and the pastor replies, "I was thinking something a little less gangstah."
Just some things to chew on. Blessings!
