Hey Guys! Grin


Ever wonder why Hollywood seems to always depict the Archangel Gabriel as an evil Being? For example, in such movies as The Prophecy and Constantine...
There doesn't seem to be movies depicting Michael or Raphael as "baddies".... Tongue

Because Hollywood is run by content delete for language

Language denigrating another peoples' creed, race or religion can not be tolerated -username!

From an Orthodox point of view, evil has no existence. Evil is non-being.
An evil action, therefore, is a non-action.
This is why Orthodoxy teaches that good can never be acheived through evil means.
Racism is an evil means.

Racism is an evil means.
True, but Judaism isn't a race but a religion.

The answer to the OP though, and sdcheung touched on this, is because MOST of what comes out of Hollywood is wrong, theologically speaking.  But this shouldn't surprise us- the majority of the writers, producers, directors, and actors aren't Orthodox Christian, ergo, it shouldn't surprise us.

Surprising since Michael has the red lightsaber which we all know means he is Sith.
