If you are an Atheist in the closet, Michael Chapman, the great-great grandson of Charles Darwin, wants you to know you are not alone. If you are not, then Chapman would like you to watch his film “The Ledge” that portrays a Christian villain. If you followed the story of Jaycee Dugard’s kidnapping, then you will want to get her new book that talks about the ordeal and how to survive such a horrible ordeal.
Atheist Movie ‘The Ledge’ Portrays Christian Villain
Director Michael Chapman hopes the film, “The Ledge” will open up people’s minds to being more accepted of Atheists like “Brokeback Mountain” did for gay people. Chapman wants everyone to see it including Christians because Atheists hold a valid view point and should be heard also.
“The plot pits a conservative Christian husband against an atheist man trying to seduce his wife.” The movie was released Friday with actors Terrence Howard and Liv Tyler starring. I encourage you to read more about The Ledge.
As a believer would you watch this movie? Why or why not? Are the actors some of your favorite actors? If so, do you think you would look at them differently for playing in this film?
Jaycee Dugard: ‘Why I Could Not Escape Abduction’
At the age of 11 Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped and help in captivity until she was 18-years-old. Now at 31 she explained to ABC News in an interview why she was not able to escape, even though she was not tied up.
With mind manipulation and physical abuse at that young age, her captor, Phillip Garrido, controlled her. She was handcuffed and repeatedly raped, resulting in two live births.
Do you think you could have survived as long as Jaycee did? Do you think you could have gotten away? If so, how?
