Fight Church: Get some! (Then pray.)

Posted By on Mon, May 21, 2012 at 3:19 PM

"Can you really love your neighbor as yourself and then punch him in the face?"

Daniel Junge Fight Church
  • Yes, even Oscar winners have to beg for cash for their future work. It's a cruel world.

Great question — I think yes.

And so do lots of others, apparently.

Welcome to Fight Church.

The first rule of Fight Church (which I'm totally making up, in contrast to Fight Club, obviously), is "talk about Fight Church, please, a lot," then donate some money to its Kickstarter campaign.

The film is one of the ones we mentioned last month in our interview with recent Oscar winner and CC alum Daniel Junge.

It's one of Junge's current projects "about the overlay of Christianity and violence," he says.

As described on the Kickstarter page:

The film follows several pastors and fighters in a quest to reconcile their faith with a sport that some consider violent and barbaric. Faith is tried and questions are raised.

With 15 days left to go and $7,737 raised thus far, the filmmakers are hoping to reach a $30,000 goal.

Check out this five-minute teaser to see if this is something you can get behind ... you know, someone's corner of the ring you care to stand in:
