Ferrell's NASCAR Movie Called Anti-Christian, Racist
Christian Reviewer Rants About Liberal Hollywood

August 7, 2006

LOS ANGELES -- Christian film reviewer Ted Baehr is no fan of this past weekend's top movie at the box office.


The Movieguide.org publisher said Will Ferrell's "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" is "a racist, bigoted work that ridicules the Bible Belt, Southern white men, Christianity, Jesus Christ, the family, and American masculinity."

Baehr said the lead character's mocking prayer to baby Jesus shows anti-Christian bigotry and wonders why Hollywood isn't treating Will Ferrell like it's treated Mel Gibson, who has apologized for his anti-Semitic outburst.
