Editor’s Note: MW’s point number 3 should be read by Christians and unbelievers alike. Point number 4 is logical and as feminists generally work by humanistic terms it stands to reason they would hate 50 Shades of Grey. But as we’ve learned over the decades immorality defies reason and feminism touted being as base as the basest men. Point number four is for feminists but … Continue reading Matt Walsh: Women of America: 4 reasons to hate 50 Shades of Grey
“Pastor John, do you believe there is a difference between film nudity versus pornography? I know many Christians who are against porn, but they have no issue watching movies or TV shows that show graphic nudity.” A young woman named Emily recently emailed this question to the Ask Pastor John inbox. A day later, Adam emailed to ask: “Pastor John, what would you say to a Christian … Continue reading 12 Questions to Ask Before You Watch ‘Game of Thrones’
We’re going to address something that is coming out this weekend that is not exactly a family friendly fare. And this is a Hollywood production and the ‘heads-up’ came just a couple of weeks ago on this one. Now, Steve, I think I am getting to be known as one of the key critics of Hollywood productions, especially for children. We were really critical on … Continue reading Kevin Swanson: Introducing Children to Dragons and Sodomy
CANNES – Is the world ready for its first animated gay Viking? “How to Train Your Dragon 2” sure hopes so. “How to Train Your Dragon 2” opened at the Cannes Film Festival last week with its stars in tow, a big party on the beach, and a life-sized Toothless the Dragon hanging out for photo ops with reporters. The sequel to its $500 million … Continue reading Character in ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ comes out as gay
Leading creationist Ken Ham, who recently debated Bill Nye, says that the new blockbuster, starring Russell Crowe, is an insult to Christians: “Ultimately, there is barely a hint of biblical fidelity in this film. It is an unbiblical, pagan film from its start” As a Creationist and also a believer in the historical account of Noah and the Flood, I agree with atheist Darren Aronofsky’s statement about … Continue reading Time: Ken Ham on the Movie Noah
I think it’s time we get serious about the song “Let it Go” from Disney’s smash hit Frozen. I’ve spent a fair amount of time lamenting that it has been stuck in my head for the last four months. Recently I realized why the 6-18 year old female demographic has experienced such a connection with the song. While it’s still still annoying–dads everywhere, I stand … Continue reading One Dad’s Thoughts on Frozen’s Smash Hit “Let It Go”
This is the perfect example of life without Christ. The trailer doesn’t resolve the issue but it does expose our humanistic thinking. We cannot look to others, we cannot look to nature, we cannot look to ourselves and we cannot even look to the good things of this life to find what we truly need. I appreciate the fact that the filmmakers pointed to the one constant thing, the sun and by it the Creator of the universe. As the sun rising brought a semblance of hope and stability and confidence, it proved to be insufficient as it should be only a testimony to something greater.

As we pointed out in our last post, Princess Merida is a pretty conventional tomboy. However, “Brave” does not present a conventional happily-ever-after: its Disney princess is the first ever to not get a prince. From the beginning to the end, she is all the man she needs. …Which is handy, because in her world, there aren’t any others she can turn to.
Merida may not have been a particularly brave new kind of princess, but we believe that “Brave” presented the newest and bravest fairytale world in Disney princess history. Castles and tiaras notwithstanding, this brave new world is actually a lot more like ours, for two reasons.
