I must say that I really enjoyed Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. I was hoping for some great action and I was not disappointed. There were many transforming robots and great CGI fight scenes. They even used the whole "messiah" thing in the story line. I won't go into details in hopes of not spoiling anything. However, I was very disturbed by some comments that Megan Fox made to the press. She was asked what at first glance seemed to be a not so deep question.
"If you could take Megatron to one side, have a coffee with him and talk him down from wrecking the entire world, what would you say? “God!” laughs Fox. “That’s a question I don’t have an answer for and I hate you for asking me that because I’m usually so prepared!”She considers. “I think I would make a deal with him and say instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all of the white trash, hillbilly, anti-gay, super bible-beating people in Middle America?” (source)
(Clearing my throat) Now I know that I should not expect any star to necessarily embrace my beliefs but to attack people groups like that is just plain dumb. Those people she is mentioning are the same ones who are going to her movies and putting money in her bank account. Even my mom taught me that if you don't have anything nice to say about someone, then don't say anything. Do you think she would have caught grief for bashing homosexuals or other races? There is a definite double standard.
I don't regret seeing the movie, however I do regret being a Megan Fox fan. I see the effect she and others have on the teens of today. At some point I pray these celebrities will be accountable for the words they say. I do pray for Megan and hope that God will put some people in her life that will encourage and love her. People who will not want her for what she is as a celebrity but who she is as God's creation. Until then I guess I'll just keep beating my bible ya'll.
1 Peter 2:11-12 (New Living Translation) Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. 12 Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.
