Discussion about “The Reliant” Goes Viral on GLCFF YouTube Channel

In the last few days, the trailer for the latest faith-based film from Kevin Sorbo, has gone viral on our YouTube channel, but not in a positive way. Within 3 days the views for the trailer went from under 400 to over 5,500, with over 130 comments – not in support for the project, but in jest.

The Reliant (2018), was awarded “Best of the Fest” at #GLCFF2019, has had a surge in views from those curious about what the film is about, after several people reviewed and shared it, not to help promote it, but to mock it, and criticize its content. Many YouTube users posted their sarcastic remarks, to oppose the films 2nd Amendment theme, calling it “propaganda” and a call to fight against AntiFa. Within the first month of posting, there were several “likes” to the trailer.

As of this post, there have been over 130 dislikes as a result of the negative viral trolling on the page. Most internet trolls create accounts for the sole purpose of masking their identity, so they can comment on various content and remain anonymous. One user, under the account (supertacticalbacon), stated “Damn you’ve exposed the secret antifa supersoldier plan now we’ll never destroy Christmas.” The comment is one of the top “liked” comments so far. The ratio of “Likes” to “Dislikes” on the trailer is is 2-to-1, in favor of the “Dislikes.”

With mass shootings in America on the rise, such as tonight’s shooting at a Pittsburgh Christian School Football Game, should Christians continue to support and defend the 2nd Amendment? Will the faith-based community, or supporters of the 2nd Amendment, step it up in support of the project? The Reliant is scheduled to be screened across the US for One Night Only in October 2019.
