‘Doctor Strange’ Director: American Christianity ‘Racist’

Director Scott Derrickson has a funny way of ringing in a national holiday.

Derrickson’s resume includes a number of respected films including “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” (2005) and “Sinister” (2012). That changed when he co-wrote and directed the 2016 smash “Doctor Strange.” The MCU entry shook up the superhero formula just enough to score big with critics and fans alike.

That catapulted him into the big leagues, and deservedly so. He might have lost some admirers over the holidays all the same.

Derrickson fired off the following Tweet on Thanksgiving Day.

One Christian defended his faith with facts, saying American Christians give more to charities than their secular peers. Derrickson’s response doubled down in dubious fashion.

Other Twitter responders fired back, too. Here’s just one example:

Note: The message in question is screen capped below in case Derrickson decides to take it down.

  2. This is particularly stupid. Which President was not put into office by Christians? You cannot, because there are none. So saying Christians voted Trump into office has all the rhetorical might of saying people put Trump into office.

  3. Yet another deluded lefty “artist” who mistakenly believes his political/religious opinions carry any weight whatsoever.
    Must be a day of the week that ends in Y.

  4. As per Gallup poll 2015 75% of Americans identify as Christians; therefore any person elected President has been elected by Christians. This includes electing Obama too.

    1. Good point. The US is 24% Catholic and I know that a majority of Catholics voted for Obama. So is he going to whine about that too?

      1. However, a majority of Catholics who regularly attend Mass voted against Obama. So, Scott Derrickson will not lack for something to whine about.

  5. I don’t know what he’s worried about, I seriously doubt anyone was ever in danger of calling this guy a Christian.

  6. You know what I can’t find anywhere near that verse? Or anywhere ELSE Christ defines charity? The idea that charity is supposed to involve sending the legions out to collect alms at spearpoint to be distributed by politicians with great public fanfare.

    Which is why I voted for Trump.

  7. I’ve been a Cumberbatch fan for years and really enjoyed “Doctor Strange” but will save my $10 for his other projects now.

  8. Meh. I never heard of this guy or MCU until 30 seconds ago. Just another sad “I’m with her” ninny looking for someone to blame because he voted for a sickly, unlikeable, corrupt old woman.

  9. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. -Matthew 5:11 (NIV)

    Thank you for the blessing, Scott.

  10. Democrats gave Trump over a year of nonstop free advertising on all media and social platforms with the express purpose of making Trump the GOP nominee. Democrats gave Trump campaign donations (Johnny Oliver). Democrats voted for Trump in open primaries all over the Northeast USA. Democrats nominated the worst Presidential candidate in American history. Who gave America Trump?? I thank the Democrats for making Gorsuch a Supreme Ct Justice.

  11. Nfl, nba, Hollywood, democrat media. My bank accounts have been soaring since I have decided I can not support bigots anymore.

  12. I’m surprised no one responded to the Matthew 6:4 quote with Mathew 5:16.

    “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

  13. Well, all of this is just assuring us a happy 2018 and 2020. Maybe by then they’ll find a cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome so they can re-join civilized society.
