Zam: Exercise some wisdom – PUTRAJAYA: Muslims in the country should exercise wisdom in addressing religious issues and not become hysterical when confronted with something seen as challenging their faith or belief like a film, Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin said.
I have watched Bruce Almighty like 4 times because they are either shown on DVD or over the TV. My kids love it because it makes fun of a lot of things like Moses parting the red sea which was shown in the movie where Bruce parted his bowl tomato soup. Then, there are parts like Bruce aka God’s temporary helper answering all prayers. As kids, they also know how to use their wisdom to know what is funny, which part is making parody of the Bible and how things can screwed up if God works the way Bruce did. So, overall, it is an enlightening movie to them.
Zainuddin said this in response to calls by various quarters for the Government to ban the screening of Evan Almighty following claims the movie contained scenes that insulted Muslims and Islam.
So, why da heck are people so tense over things like these? Why was Da Vinci Code ok and a parody movie like this so controversial?
The film Evan Almighty has actor Morgan Freeman playing the role of “God” and he orders Evan Baxter (played by Steve Carell) to build an ark to avoid a big flood.

Perhaps Malaysians cannot think straight and get influenced too easy to these kind of flicks.
Ever see a 5 year old boy getting all horny over a young lady like Shin Chan did (and still do)?
Even a 5 year old boy wouldn’t do such things after watching the cartoon. I doubt an adult would be so easily swayed after watching a movie.
Insulting Islam? I think the movie producers are referring to Christianity instead of Islam (although there are similarities between the two religions).
Like you said lah, releks la brader…
Aiyoh! If liddat ban everything lah! Let us all be monks!
and yet again the malaysian perception has been marred.
sad to say but this is the reality, duno when malaysian censorship board can be more “open”…
making us feel like so kuno and lau beh!
like tinggal bawah tempurung still.. c’mon..
evan almighty is just another good laughter for all of us to share!
a lot of religious fanatics out there going things way out of context!
i mean taking things..hehe
Like your first commentator say, this movie is more insulting to Christianity than Islam. lol
i love bruce almighty, and they did show it on HBO you know.
I bet many have watched it before.
And about the Da Vinci thinggy, I totally agree with you.
If they can show that movie (although its pretty much outrageous and bogus) and we didnt complain too much about it, why should they make such big deal out of Evan Almighty?
Sigh. Like you said,
Relax brader! 😀

If they ever practice wisdom, the sun would rise from the west. The world would be a better place to live in.
