Ray Comfort Is Just Going to Release His Own Non-‘Sensational’ Noah Movie

Evangelist and controversial Christian filmmaker Ray Comfort is so dissatisfied with the upcoming Noah movie that he’s just going to go ahead and release his own. In an interview with Assit News, when referring to the Darren Aronofsky blockbuster starring Russell Crowe, Comfort said, “Theirs is a fake Noah, ours [is] the real thing. But we haven’t even mentioned their movie in ours. Instead, we have done something different, and it’s going to make a lot of people in Hollywood angry.” He also never makes it clear that he’s actually seen the movie. On a Facebook post, he seems to suggest that one of his problems with the film is the kind of wood that the ark is made out of in the movie, linking to this article from one of the movie’s Biblical advisors. (Update: Ken Ham, who endorses Ray Comfort’s film, has outlined his reasons for disapproving of the Hollywood Noah here. He cites a staff member who has seen a rough cut of the film in his criticism.)

Though he failed to cite any real examples of what he found so offensive about the Hollywood version (aside from the gopher wood), which hasn’t even been released yet, Comfort said the movie shows “no respect for Christians and Jews, by painting Noah as a psychopath” adding, “They [Hollywood] have no qualms about sensationalizing the story of Noah in order to make it more profitable. That’s their bottom line. But the movie strays so far from the Biblical account that it omits its essential message—God’s judgment for man’s sin and evil. Taking ‘poetic license’ on this story further erodes the public’s perception of the Biblical account—and of the Bible in general.” Ironically, other Christian critics who have seen pre-release screenings of the movie, praised the filmmakers for making those exact things so clear: Ted Baehr, publisher of the conservative MovieGuide.com told The Christian Post, “The primary message that comes out of the film is the depravity of man and the judgment of God.” In a move he even acknowledged may confuse viewers, Comfort has announced he is releasing his film on YouTube the same day Noah hits theaters …
