I have made a personal commitment to not see any films that have blasphemy in them. You can too by visiting HollywoodandGod.com to find a list of recent contemporary movies that contain blasphemy, and a link to the producers. Then send Hollywood a message. Email them and say, “Your movie contains blasphemy. Don’t look for my money at the box office.” This was Ray Comfort's idea and Brad Snow designed the website. It's updated regularly and no doubt Pineapple Express will be added to the list soon.
