“God’s Not Dead” writers take on the controversial topic of religious liberty again in the upcoming movie “Do You Believe?” because they want Christians to know that they are in the middle of a culture war.
Pure Flix Entertainment writer Cary Solomon said he and fellow writer Chuck Konzelman decided to feature a religious speech lawsuit in “Do You Believe?” because Christians have been in the shadows for far too long.
“When we did ‘God’s Not Dead’ and if you look at that and you look at this and anything else we do, I’m tired, I’m sure Christians are tired. I’m just tired of [how] we are always put in the shadows, we are persecuted down. In other words, we are put in these positions where we’re not allowed to speak, we’re not allowed to do this, we’re not allowed to do that and … we just felt that it’s time to fire the shot heard round the world,” said Solomon.
“God’s Not Dead” took the world by surprise with its success at the box office. Pure Flix CEO and Managing Partner Michael Scottsaid the film earned $9 million in its first week in theaters and another $8 to 9 million in its second week.
