Brilliant Observation from Ann Coulter on Effective Christian Themes

I’ve been following my fellow Convo writers’ posts on the “Breaking Bad” series finale.  Since I had never seen the show and figured there were too many seasons to catch up on, I watched the last 30 minutes of the series finale live just to see what all the buzz was about.  Given that a lot of my favorite writers were tweeting during the finale, I obviously missed a great show.  In her column last week, “Breaking Bad: A Christian Parable,” Ann Coulter made a brilliant observation about effective conservative and/or Christian messaging in Hollywood.  She wrote:

     This [column]’s about AMC’s smash TV series “Breaking Bad” — the most Christian Hollywood production since Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ.” (Not surprisingly, both were big hits!)




     It may seem counterintuitive that a TV show about a meth cook could have a conservative theme, much less a Christian one, but that’s because people think Christian movies are supposed to have camels — or a “Little House on the Prairie” cast. READ THE BIBLE! It’s chockablock with gore, incest, jealousy, murder, love and hate.




     Because the Bible tells the truth, the lessons are eternal — which also marks the difference between great literature and passing amusements. Recall that even Jesus usually made his points with stories.

If you’re a “Breaking Bad” (or Ann Coulter) fan, the whole column s worth a read.  I just thought this point was especially important.
