So there’s this new website that compares Stephen Baldwin, the least talented Baldwin brother, to Job and asks Christians everywhere to “restore Stephen Baldwin” –meaning send money to help him with his bankruptcy and thus prove how great Christians are. I hope this idea falls flat and proves that Christians are smart and have better things to do than prop up a knucklehead.

And why Stephen Baldwin? Well, the video says because Hollywood and the Internets are mean to him he’s lost gigs and is mocked. Well, yeah, that’s what happens online, people are made fun of. But Baldwin’s beg site takes it a step farther stating:

A simple search through the internet will reveal that people not only mock Stephen, but mock God.

So, like someone sat around and compared IP addresses and screen names to prove this idiotic concept?

Grow up, baby Baldwin!

And the job part is a load of malarkey: According to IMDB.com, since his conversion in 2003 Baldwin’s been in 27 movies, almost more than one quarter of his total creative output in a career that began 24 years ago. That doesn’t suck, dude.

The Restoration of Stephen Baldwin, the website to make a donation to Baldwin and raise millions for God’s glory in the form of Baldwin’s bank account, writes:

Over the next few years, he became very vocal about his faith, using his spotlight to boldly preach the gospel. However, because of this convictions it has caused him the loss of many jobs and the most recently, a highly publicized bankruptcy.

He has been publicly ridiculed and insulted by people who think that he has been abandoned by God. A simple search through the internet will reveal that people not only mock Stephen, but mock God…

Our vision is to see Stephen Baldwin publicly restored in front of millions. Stephen’s platform will increase allowing him to reach even more people with the Gospel and God will get all of the glory. Publicly.

This is really repulsive. If you want to prove God’s glory through donations, maybe consider giving to a reputable charity, not to a guy who talks about himself in the third person on video while asking for money when he is working more than most people in Hollywood.
