Following Mark Wahlberg’s lead, Kevin James asks God to forgive him for “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”

Just days after actor Mark Wahlberg statement that he regretted portraying a porn star in Boogie Nights, fellow Catholic actor Kevin James announced today that he hopes God wouldn’t hold the movie Paul Blart: Mall Cop against him.

James told EOTT this afternoon that he hopes “that God is not a movie fan and also forgiving” because he says he’s made some “poor choices” over the years. Among those movies James listed were, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, Zookeeper, and Hitch.

“People make bad decisions in life,” James said. “But in my case, these bad decisions are continually aired on TV. It’s hard to come to terms with it. The money helps, I guess.”

He added that the bad decisions of his past sometimes makes it easier when speaking to at-risk youth,  as he is able to show them what lies ahead if they don’t turn their lives around.

“It’s kinda like that show Scared Straight, you know? But instead of having convicts scare the crap out of kids, it’s me showing young actors what could happen to their lives if they make the mistakes and bad decisions I made. I can only hope that this’ll be good enough to make amends with God.

      Get back in your car seat. I will tell you when we are there.

    God is a God of mercy, and he has alraedy forgiven bad movies before they were made.
    “Before I formed you in the screen writing process I knew you, before you were released I set you apart; I appointed you as a box office to the nations.”

      Am I forgiven ahead of time for “dissing” you for this weird theology. of God forgiving bad films before the Director gets absolution, a suitable penance and appropriate indulgence a few days before Luther nails his feces to the Cathedral door. Where did you get your theological formation. I left the automobile a while back, thanks samton. I stopped by to check if any intelligent sign of life was posted in EOTT.

        I have heard of nailing jello to the wall, but not that. I assume the results are the same.

          I I am conflicted about Luther he was obsessed with his salvation hence b anal-retentive, hence he would be constipated; His Table Talk was filthy hence the scheiss flowed freely and it would be jello like. .

          • samton909

            Luther was obsessed?

          • HermitTalker

            With being saved. Got a fright as a child in a storm. The rest is history as they say. Read about him and his fanatical twisting of Romans..

      Haha, nice.

    What I really want to know is if Marky Mark asked forgiveness for his Marky Mark days? I can see being forgiven for a bad movie or two, but that funky bunch stuff may have approached unforgivable.

      If Jesus is like Pope Francis, Mark is home free. IF Jesus is like some cardinals and bishops’ conferences he will stay in Purgatory. No contest
