Corpus Christi movie

This email was forwarded to me. It's an email protesting about an alleged movie about to be released depicting a Gay Jesus. At the end of the letter, it asks the reader to forward it to as many people as possible.
Usually, I just ignore these emails and erase them from my inbox, regardless of threats of being thrown to a place where there are wailing and gnashing of teeth. Out of curiosity, I googled the title of the movie and guess what I found out.
It's a hoax. There is no movie about a gay Jesus. And this email has been circulating since 2001.

This is the email that was sent to me.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS:

The movie Corpus Christi is due to be released this June to August.

This disgusting film set to appear in America later this year and it depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theaters for a while. It's called Corpus Christi ' which means 'The Christ Body.' It's a revolting mockery of our Lord. But, we can make a difference. That's why I am sending this e-mail to you. If you do send this around, we may be able to prevent this film from showing in America and South Africa .
Apparently, some regions in Europe have already banned the film. We need a lot of prayers and a lot of e-mails.
As a Christian I want to take a stand in what I believe in and stop the mockery of Jesus Christ our Savior.
At the risk of a bit of inconvenience, I'm forwarding this to all I think would appreciate it. Please help us prevent such offenses against our Lord. It will take you less than 2 minutes to pass it on.
If you are not interested, or do not have the 2 Minutes it will take to do this , please don't complain when God does not have time for you, because He is far busier than we are..
Remember, Jesus said 'Deny Me on earth and I'll deny you before my Father'

Men of Light

Men of Light is a weekly talk show that is shown locally here in Pampanga. It is hosted by three priests (Bishop Ambo David, Father Raul de los Santos and Father Deo Galang) and every week they discuss the Sunday gospel in Filipino.
They are able to dissect the gospels and give you a fresh insight to the gospel. It is shown at a local channel here in Pampanga and broadcasted through Radio Veritas (the AM radio station of the Catholic Church). And now it is accessible at their website (http://rcasf.com/amanu.html) and what's great about it is that you can download it and watch it anytime and anywhere (as long as you have an internet connection). Personally, I download the episodes as an MP3 file and listen to it on my car stereo (it's like taking a joy ride with friends).
I am happy that the Catholic Church here in our country is harnessing the power of the internet. They can spread the word of God to our fellow Filipinos who are working abroad and have no access to a church/priest.

Horcrux and Blogs

For those who read Harry Potter, a Horcrux is an object in which a wizard or witch has hidden a fragment of his or her soul for the purpose of attaining immortality. I think Blogs have something similar with Horcruces.
1. Bloggers write about their thoughts and interests and some even add pictures/videos that show a part of their personality or "soul".
2. According to a harry potter website I found, constructing a Horcrux is supposed to be considered extremely dark magic. It violates laws of nature and morality, and requires a horrific act as well as murder to accomplish. I don't think extremely dark magic is required to blog but they can violate the laws of morality and sometimes bloggers can do a horrific act or even "murder" a person's character on their blogs.
3. Constructing a horcrux takes a part of the soul hence, a wizard can only create a limited number of horcruces. (Lord Voldemort has 7.) Blogs on the other hand, only take a part of your time and writing talent, so a blogger can create a s many blogs as he wants.
4. A Horcrux have certain magical abilities which includes the ability to influence those in their vicinity. Blogs do not have magical abilities but they can influence those who read it.
5. Blogs, like horcruces, can grant immortality to its creator.
Check out my other horcruces/blogs on parenting and food. This blog will tackle any other topic that goes into my head.
