Some of you may be shocked that I’m even mentioning 50 Shades of Grey on my homeschool blog. You’ll probably be interested in the last commenter I mention below.
Others of you are struggling in your desire to see the movie that opened on Valentines Day. You’ll want to read the first few commenters.
I haven’t seen the movie, nor do I plan to see it. You might say that I have no business commenting on it, if I haven’t seen it. I disagree. There are times in the past when I have read a book to determine if it’s appropriate. For instance, I read Harry Potter to see if I’d let my kids read it. I didn’t listen to all the commenters. But this is different.
It’s been on my heart to write about this movie, but I found other blogs that did an excellent job.
Some are Christian. Some are not.
Some have seen the movie. Some have not.
Some can personally relate. Some may not.
But, they all renounce the domestic & sexual violence themes in this movie.
Abra Carnahan shares her story, her personal story of being a victim of sexual violence as it relates to 50 Shades of Grey. She is a Christian, homeschool mom and wants to help other women.
Rosie Waterland says, she “expected the whole movie to be a bit of a cheesy laugh. Instead she walked out of the cinema on the verge of tears.”
Meg Meeker is a psychiatrist that helps people who are broken inside.
She says, “Fifty Shades of Grey is being released for Valentine’s Day, so you’ll think it’s a romance, but don’t fall for it. The movie is actually about a sick, dangerous relationship filled with physical and emotional abuse ... This is black and white. There are no shades of grey here. Not even one.” Read more here:
Becky Thompson discusses 50 Shades of Grey as it relates to our Christian marriages. She encourages wives in their marriage. This is well worth the read for all of us!
