June 13, 2018. FOR THE RECORD. Mary is the name of Jesus’s mother, when he was here on earth and only when he was here on earth. Mary is now in heaven. A very humble, modest woman (which is why she was chosen to give birth to God’s son), Mary is not pleased that Catholics pray to her (and other “saints”) instead of praying as Jesus Christ taught: prayer directly to, and only to, God. (Matthew 6:9)
Contrary to the teachings of the Catholic church, Mary is not “the mother of God”. Jesus Christ is not God. Jesus Christ is the son of God, God’s firstborn.
(Contrary to the teachings of the Mormon Church of Satan, God was not once a man. God did not have sex with Mary and impregnate her. Jesus Christ was conceived by means of God’s holy spirit, which is not a person, rather, God’s active force, God’s dynamic energy, God’s means by which He accomplishes His purpose. to be continued)
Contrary to the teachings of the Catholic church, Mary did not remain a virgin throughout her marriage to Joseph. Mary remained a virgin until Jesus Christ was born. Mary and Joseph consummated their marriage after Jesus was born; Mary was no longer a virgin. (A figurative virgin [pure in mind and heart], yes, but not a literal physical virgin.) Mary gave birth to other children after Jesus was born (documented in God’s Word the Holly Bible, to be continued).
Rosemary’s Baby is the name of a book, and a movie. I read the book. I had no desire to see the movie.
“Rosemary’s Baby” opened two months after the death of King, and a week after RFK was killed. In both those cases, as with the JFK assassination in 1963, much of the public was dubious whether the true culprits had been arrested or whether these deaths came from a widespread, organized plot. When the Variety review described Rosemary as “the lone victim of a conspiracy,” it was clear that the film had tapped into 1960s paranoia.
In the decade before “Rosemary’s Baby” opened, the news also carried reports about the 1959 murders of the Clutter family in Kansas, the 1966 mass shootings from a University of Texas tower, and the killing of eight student nurses in South Chicago. Writer-director Polanski reminded audience that zombies, vampires and giant insects are scary fun, but true terror comes from human beings.
The movie was also grounded in the real world thanks to casual references to familiar products like Scrabble, Yamaha motorcycles and the famed 1966 Time magazine cover asking “Is God Dead?” While Polanski ensured the movie’s credibility, he also added some ambiguity. The plot centers on Satanists and he was an atheist, so he wanted to leave it open to interpretation whether these events are real, or if Rosemary has gone crazy and is imagining everything.
The Variety review also noted a 1968 breakthrough: The brief but then-shocking use of a word that was “slang for defecation,” which hadn’t been heard before in a major-studio film.
Levin’s book and Polanski’s film opened the door for works like “The Exorcist,” “The Omen,” the novels of Stephen King and Anne Rice, and eventually Jordan Peele’s “Get Out.”
In the 21st century, the names of Polanski and Farrow have been synonymous with scandal, due to his 1978 rape conviction and her child molestation claims against Woody Allen. But in 1968, the Polish filmmaker was admired but barely known in the U.S. outside the art-house circuit. Farrow was best known for her role in ABC-TV’s nighttime soap opera “Peyton Place” and her brief marriage to Frank Sinatra, when she was 21 and he was 50. “Rosemary’s Baby” put them both on the worldwide map, and it was also a boost for producer William Castle. He had been responsible for money-making films (“The Tingler,” “House on Haunted Hill”), but they were often gimmicky and camp. For Castle, and almost every one else involved, “Rosemary’s Baby” remains the primo credit.
In July, Reel Art Press will publish “This is No Dream,” a book by James Munn about the making of the film.
