Film review: Agora

Thank you for the 'heads up' - I saw this poster recently and thought it might be worth viewing at some point.

I shall save my time and money.

Frankly, I get rather fed up with 'Christian -bashing', although I am acutely aware that early Christians would hear my 'plaint with some amusement, given that we are at least free (in the UK at least) to follow our faith without interference or threat of lions! But there is definitely a media onslaught agin Christianity.

Sometimes I take heart that Jesus' message is still so powerful - clearly, some are afraid of that message, still. I suspect that if they were not afraid of that power, no bashing would occur. Isn't that what happened at the beginning - fear, lies, distortion, portrayal of Christians (and their founder!) as troublemakers?

Of course, I'd rather they were not afraid....

Incidentally, I heard years ago that 'Christians flayed alive the librarian of Alexandria (her name was Flavia), prior to setting the library on fire'. Does anybody know the truth of the destruction of this library?
