Media Religious Responses

  1. 1. To make our story more causable & therefore not random we asked students in our media class “Why would the killer turn to religion?” considering this is a strong theme within our film as we have religious quotes and references through out. In addition we also carried out some research on the internet of why people turn to religion. Person : Question : Why would the killer in our film turn to religion 1 Killed someone he cared about 2 Someone tried to kill him 3 Worried about the after life, feels his illness is a punishment from god. 4 Encounter with god (Spiritual Vision). 5 Still loves his wife even after committing adultery. 6 Certain experiences with his wife’s photo. (Every time he looks at it sees a flash back of what he has done and regrets it). 7 Constantly repenting. 8 Last resort 9 Posters of bible quotes draw him to church. 10 Friends draw him to church. 11 Dreams about God talking to him. 12 Wife haunts him. 13 A woman he tries to seduce is a Christian and has no intensions of committing adultery creating him to have a revelation. Web responses to “Why people turn to religion” “Fear of unknown is at the root of all religions; and all personal religious experiences have their root and centre in mystical states of human consciousness. Like drugs, the religions too may produce a psychotropic influence on human mind; and stimulate the mystical faculties of human nature. Even so, religions do bring a sense of inner happiness, though short- lived, in a state of false inner tranquillity and balance; but over passionate pursuance may produce mild euphoria, cause hallucination; and even alter perception and thinking pattern.” Quote from source: http://truthaboutreligioustruths.blogspot.com/2005/10/why- do-people-turn-to-religion.html
  2. 2. “There were four people who gave testimonies about how God had come into their lives and changed them for the better. Each of these people had experienced a revelation during tough times I asked one of the girls there if this troubled her and she told me that it is true that some people only turn to Christianity (and religion as a whole) when they need it. Her opinion was that this is not a bad thing because it is during these low periods when people start to think about their spirits, which in turn leads them to God. There is logic in this, but then by the same logic it means that the religion that each person turns to is the one that is most accessible, which has a lot to do with where a person is at the time, his or her upbringing, family, and so on.” Quote from source: http://whatismatt.com/do-people-only-turn-to-religion- when-they-are-desperate/
