I can't remember exactly the complete details of the event, but I remember in college attending an event where we ate true Texas Barbecue and there was a rancher from the organization Cowboys for Christ who spoke. Whatever you picture this "Cowboy for Christ" was like, is probably dead on.
Anyways, I was surprised when I recently ran across this poster for the movie called Cowboys for Christ. What is this about, I wondered? A documentary? The next Christian themed film like "A Walk to Remember?"
But alas, nothing of the type. It's the movie poster for a horror movie staring Christopher Lee and Joan Collins directed by Robin Hardy (1973's Wicker Man), based on Hardy's on book.
Apparently, the story is about a gospel singer and cowboy boyfriend who leave Texas to go preach door-to-door in Scotland, and who find some people interested in the Christian faith, but really have other horrific plans in mind.
The film begins filming in April in Scotland...and somehow I think the rancher I saw share his faith years ago will not be seeing this film.
You have to wonder if the movie might steal the organizations tag line: "Are you ridin' with Jesus?"
