You know we’re desperate for news when we write about Kirk Cameron, the creationist boy wonder. Here are two of our previous posts about him: Kirk Cameron and the Crocoduck, and also Kirk Cameron: World’s Dumbest Human?
In case you may have missed it, here’s another chance to see him in his supporting role in Ray Comfort’s famous “Banana video”. Our last post about the boy wonder was when he showed up in an article in WorldNetDaily — that was Kirk Cameron Gets Award for “Excellence”.
Now he’s back in the news. We learned about it in The Hollywood Reporter, which has this headline: Kirk Cameron’s Faith-Based ‘Saving Christmas’ Picked Up for Limited Release. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Kirk Cameron is on Samuel Goldwyn Films’ nice list. The company will release Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas in a limited run on Nov. 14.
With a title like that, it’s going to be a smashing success. But what’s it about? We’re told:
The Growing Pains actor, who has a long history of conservative activism and commentary, intends to put Christ back into Christmas with the film, focusing on the biblical story behind the festivities.
There’s a biblical story behind Christmas? Who knew? Let’s read on:
“For too many years Christmas has been attacked and hammered by those outside the church, and it’s even changed how we think about Christmas inside the church,” he said in a statement. “My hope for Saving Christmas is that families all across the country will join with my family in putting Christ back into Christmas.”
If anyone can save Christmas, it’s the banana boy. We did what we could last year — see The Night Before Christmas Eve — but we’re certain that Cameron can do it better.
The Hollywood Reporter goes on a bit about unimportant stuff, so we’ll skip to the end:
The film is produced in partnership with Liberty University, a nonprofit Christian university in Lynchburg, Va., which partnered with CAMFAM [Cameron's production company] last year to produce the Cameron-written documentary Unstoppable.
Wow — Liberty University! This film is going to be great! Somehow we missed Cameron’s documentary last year, but there’s no way we’re gonna miss his new film!
