Has anybody sent this to Diana Ossana?  I'm thinking she might love it.

She might.  Want to do it?

That's a really awesome idea!  The cult is amazing. :)

(By the way, why are there two threads for it?  Should they be merged?)

The original thread (this one) is for material from the beginnings of the Cult at IMDb.  The other thread is for new material and any comments on the material in this thread.

Originally posted Thursday, March 2, 2006 by Meryl:

In hopes of warding off an internecine conflict, I offer the following Creed for consideration, in which we honor Story, Screenplay and Movie equally, thus making all aspects included in these texts worthy of celebration.


THE BROKEBACK CREED

I believe in Annie, the Author Almighty,

Creator of Ennis and Jack,

And in Larry and Diana, her chosen Adaptors,

Who conceived of the Holy Screenplay,

Suffered under obtuse Producers,

Were criticized, flamed and turned down.

The seventh year they rose again to the task.

They ranched up with Focus Features

And sat at the feet of Ang, the Director Almighty,

Who proceeded to cast both Heath and Jake.

I believe in the Holy Story, the Holy Movie, too,

the Communing of Shirts, the Force of Nature,

The blessings of Brokeback Mountain,

And love everlasting.

I swear.




Meryl!! I never saw this. I think its funny as shit!! The words, the concepts, the capitalization, who and what corresponds to who and what in the Apostle's Creed. But what I think what really makes this funny is how the meter mimics the Apostle's Creed. Its not an exact match, but its so close I can hear in my mind the congregation at my church mumbling it on a Sunday morning.

Very clever indeed.
  The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Thanks, Milo!  :-*

By the way, there's more at The Brokeback Cult: The New Testament.  This thread is basically only for original IMDb material.   Any new comments or material should go there.  :)

S'alright, bud, I asked that folks not post in the Cult to keep it limited to the original IMDb material. Feel free to add to the Brokeback Cult: The New Testament  8) 8)
