Forrest Gump was a true story.
Gandalf was a real man.
A big ape did rip through New York.
Opening wardrobes allows entry into other worlds.
Etc. Etc. Etc.
Yes, indeed. Truth in entertainment is important.

Man, the Godwins keep on piling.
Soon we'll be needing annual nominations and an academy award.

The bible is \"only fiction\" and look how much damage it caused.
And ofcourse I also call Godwin.

Hitler this and Hitler that. Jesus ass fucking Christ! There are other oppresing Dictators out there you know. Like God for example.

I'd be happier if they through in a Stalin, or Mao, or PolPot every so often.
All we ever get is, your rude, like hitler.
Or that books fictional, you know hitler had fictional books.
Or you don't smoke, you know hitler didn't smoke...

For sheer mass murder, Stalin definately wins. He was also an atheist (as was his entire government). Why do the Fundies never use him?
4/27/2006 12:41:07 PM
Hadanelith - they do, but the phrase they use is \"commie\".
And, please - that is an intolerable hyperbole. Dan Brown is Hitler? Hitler had a FAR better speech writer!
4/27/2006 1:02:13 PM
Because they don't teach about Stalin in 'home-skoolin'

Well, propaganda IS fictional (or at least in general effect, though it may contain some actual facts). However, the point is that propaganda generally is falsely presented as being true, with the idea of promoting a particular ideology. One excellent example of this is Genesis, among certain other books in the Bible (probably most, in fact).
Oh, and don't forget the other kind of propaganda: A socially correct male goose.

You know what else Hitler did? Thought.
4/27/2006 2:56:03 PM
Hitler's propaganda films (or, I should say, Goebbels' propaganda films) were not marketed as fiction, and that was where the majority of the problems lay. Much like holy texts.
4/27/2006 3:03:59 PM
I got hit by a propaganda movie once. Hurt like hell.
This is why I want to ban movies.

The only book should be the Bible. The only movie should be the Bible. The only stage play should be the Bible. The only TV show should be the Bible.

Ow! Damn irony meter's melting again.
C'mon, Iggy, how can a Christian actually say \"Truth is important?\" Have you ever *read* the bible?
4/27/2006 3:20:47 PM
extended translation: The 4 gospels of the new testament are the only legitimate ones. The numerous others are false because . . . . WE SAY SO!
4/27/2006 6:39:52 PM
Um...yeah, but they were passed off as fact. You see, that's the point of propaganda...why do I bother?
4/28/2006 8:18:48 AM
Thesis flaw, Hitler didn´t it mean to be fiction, he said IT WAS REAL(fiction was coined by his detractors later on trying to uncover his meaness but he never said it was \"fictitious\")
8/27/2006 9:27:24 PM
Oh, you mean the documentaries he made? No, those weren't fiction. Take a World Cinema History course and You Fail!
11/29/2007 4:09:57 PM
People always go stright for the Hitler jab, so now it's lost all meaning. Thanks alot internet!
11/29/2007 5:13:13 PM
He has a point, I mean, the bible is only fiction but look at the damage it does.
6/19/2009 2:16:54 PM
Truth has never been important to the fundie crowd. I find it hard to believe they'd start now.
