‘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.



  1. 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.

  2. The first thought that came to mind when I read that Scott Derrickson had made this statement was, “Who said that?”

  3. 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.”

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

  5. 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.
