    Interesting that the first asumption is that the God and Angel that revealed themselves to the Dad and Adam was the "Christian" God and not the Judaic or Muslim God/Allah and Angels.

    I also find it very intersting that the Adult Fenton's home was the only over the top, overtly decorated with Christian symbols such as crucifixes, etc.

    Disturbing and Reckless

    A stylish movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat. But the ending is truly disturbing.

    If this was a Muslim family, where the fundamentalist father was teaching his kids that Americans and other demons were non-humans that deserved a violent death in the name of a judgmental Allah, then you've got a good picture of today's radical Islam.

    If this message can stir up hundreds of thousands of radical Muslims, then I'm sure "Frailty" has gotten more than a few fundamentalist Christians salivating self-righteously at the idea of killing in the name of God.

    Is Paxton fanning the flames, or is he just reckless?
