What ever happened to the religious movies on tv?

  1. I remember a time when The 10 Commandments would be on at least once a year like clockwork. Also around Easter, Jesus of Nazareth would also be on and conclude on Easter Sunday.

    Are these too religious now for a supposedly religiously conservative America?

    AIR the number of church going white christians in the US has been declining for years. Mix in the fact that few movies age well, and it is inevitable that one will see most of one's favorites fade from the TV screen.

    Fortunately, free markets have an alternative and so does Big Government. You can buy The Ten Commandments in stunnning HD at Amazon for just a Jackson, while the regular version is probably available at most big city libraries for the asking.
  3. what happened to all the westerns? what happened to all the world war combat movies?
    i doubt it has anything to do with the fact that scholors have concluded that those bible stories were fictional.
