Cameron Cannot Save But Will Profit from Christmas with Coffee

Cameron Cannot Save But Will Profit from Christmas with Coffee

It has been four months since Kirk Cameron released his movie “Saving Christmas” to scathing reviews and some early labeling of it as “the worst movie ever made”. What better reason than that to merchandise off the flick and introduce “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas Blend“?

We kid you not.

The movie that didn’t sell is now hawking coffee that won’t sell either.

For $20 a pound you can get this deliciously described beverage: “The subtle sweetness of the Indonesian beans is intimately paired with the robust earthiness of the African for a truly harmonious and memorable cup”.

Could it possibly be more memorable than the movie?

“We saved Christmas. Now, taste the glory,” the tagline for Cameron’s coffee expounds.

In addition to a poor RottenTomatoes rating, “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas” was voted the worst-ever film on IMBD in December. At the time of the film’s release, Cameron encouraged his fans to support the film as well as the dismal RottenTomatoes rating it generated.

“Help me storm the gates of Rotten Tomatoes,” the actor wrote at the time, including a photo of him holding two tomatoes with “Fresh” and “Rating” written on each.

“All of you who love Saving Christmas – go rate it at Rotten Tomatoes right now and send the message to all the critics that WE decide what movies we want our families see,” Cameron added. “If 2,000 of you (out of almost 2 million on this page) take a minute to rate Saving Christmas, it will give the film a huge boost and more will see it as a result! Thank you for all your help and support in putting the joy of Christ back in Christmas!”

Christmas on Minds of Lawmakers

Christmas on Minds of Lawmakers

Tis the season for extending the reach of Merry Christmas legislation in two more states — Arkansas and Indiana. The state senate in Indiana passed their version of the Merry Christmas Bill earlier this week and a nearly identical measure has just been introduced in Arkansas by Representative Justin T. Harris.

Harris says the bill will “allow students and school district staff to offer traditional greetings regarding celebrations, including Merry Christmas.” The bill, HB 1272, also makes mention of other holiday greetings including “Happy Hanukkah” and “Happy Holidays.” The bill states that scenes or symbols associated with a traditional winter celebration, including a menorah or Christmas image, can be placed on school property. It also states those same scenes and symbols may not include a message that encourages adherence to a particular religious belief.

The bills are largely designed to prevent threats of lawsuits, which most often come from out-of-state operations of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, who claim they have received a “complaint”.

In Indiana the Senate Education Committee unanimously backed a similar measure, which would allow schools to have Nativity scenes or other Yuletide decorations, as long as another religious or secular holiday is recognized. It would also permit history lessons about winter holidays and traditional holiday greetings, including “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukkah.”

These two states continue a five year trend by local legislators to protect schools from lawsuits.
