Fight Church - new documentary
« on: April 07, 2014, 06:34:05 AM »


Documentary currently in post-production.  Trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAz2jUOmGlc

Judging by the trailer, it appears this documentary examines the dichotomy between Christianity as a peaceful religion and the violent/competitive world of combat sports.  The deeper message explored seems to be whether today's Christian men have lost their masculinity.  I am interested in it, although I don't know if there will be an Orthodox voice represented.  Does seem to be a Catholic priest, though.

Thoughts?

First rule of fight church... ;)

(Insert brad Pitt joke here)
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

From what I have seen, there is a masculine, fight-y branch of Christianity.  It is called "the Serbian Orthodox Church".
Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild, daß er beschützt und hegt sein Wild, weidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört, den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt.

Yeah, though I can't imagine any Orthodox clergyman maintaining a build like the guy sin Fight Church.  Just too much fasting (or feasting).
