AN OPEN LETTER TO WENDY’S CEO EMIL J. BROLICK
Emil J. Brolick
President and CEO
The Wendy’s Company
One Dave Thomas Blvd.
Dublin, OH 43017
Dear Mr. Brolick,
Wendy’s has been a tremendous example of American free enterprise and faith and values. Dave Thomas was famed for such noble causes as promoting adoption. Your website says one of Wendy’s core values, established by Dave, is to “Do the Right Thing.” You call it a “timeless guidepost.”
You may not be aware the Wendy’s ads have been running on a television program entitled IMPASTOR. It’s the story of a gambling addict who poses as homosexual Lutheran pastor to hide from loan sharks. The program includes anti-Christian, anti–God, and anti-Christ bigotr...

1. THE LILIES OF THE FIELD: Quality: * * * * Acceptability: +4 – 1963: This wonderful family movie teaches the Gospel in a winsome, entertaining way that’s unsurpassed by most other movies. In the story, a group of German nuns transplanted to Southwest America convince a young black laborer to help them build a local church. In the meantime, the young man teaches the nuns the joys of Pentecostal Protestant worship focused on Jesus and His Gospel. Both Jesus and the local church are lifted up, and Sidney Poitier’s pe...
Did God Time the Release of WAR ROOM?
Bill Cosby, Stephen Collins and now Josh Duggar have been exposed for sexual immorality. Each presented themselves as stellar family men on television.
The worst horrors of Planned Parenthood are now on video on the Internet.
The 38 million strong adultery arrangement website Ashley Madison has been hacked and adulterers exposed.
A Barna survey conducted for Proven Men Ministries has found that 63 percent of self-professing Christian men look at pornography at least monthly (19 percent at least once a day).
It’s as if the media is asking, “What have you done? What will you do about it?”
On August 28 the Kendrick Brothers’ new movie WAR ROOM provides an answer. The mo...
Celebrities Against Planned Parenthood
Lyndee Fletcher, Contributing Writer
Planned Parenthood is under investigation for illegally selling the bodies of aborted babies for profit. A pro-life activist group went undercover as a biogenics company and exposed horrific videos on Youtube. Top executives from Planned Parenthood talked about specifics people wanted like livers and lungs and even admitted to performing illegal partial birth abortions to be able to “harvest” the desired parts. One of the executives openly talks about this in horrific detail while casually sipping wine at lunch and mentions that each “specimen,” that being an unborn or partially birthed baby, goes for around one hundred dollars.
5 Things You Need to Know About the Movie CAPTIVE
By Jonny Zachary
This fall, a movie is coming to the theaters that so blatantly proclaims the Gospel that its tagline is, “Faith. Redemption. Survival.” The movie is called CAPTIVE, and it stars David Oyelowo (SELMA) and Kate Mara (FANTASTIC FOUR).

He detains her for seven hours and during that time, she convinces him to let her live by reading Nichols portions of The Purpose Driven Life, inspiring him to search for redemption. CAPTIVE hits theaters worldwide on September 18, 2015.

“Be Fruitful and Multiply”:
Movies that Build Faith and Family
By Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher
Movie after movie today portrays mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, and children as either dysfunctional, wicked or evil. VACATION, SINISTER 2 and THE VISIT are just a few examples.
This popular perception in movies and television is carried through with so-called studies claiming that marriage doesn’t make you happy, children don’t make you happy, and people want to be bisexual because they are confused by the media induced lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh. Some close friends have been influenced by these studies.
On the other had, God says:
“Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.”
WAR ROOM and CINDERELLA vs. IMPASTOR
It is so exciting that in 2015 Christian audiences have movies to see like DO YOU BELIEVE?, WAR ROOM and CAPTIVE. There have even been some wonderful family movies like PADDINGTON, CINDERELLA and INSIDE OUT. In profound ways, you can see the impact MOVIEGUIDE® has had in showing Hollywood that there is a big audience for content with strong faith and values.
Sadly, this is not the entire story. There are still those who despise Christianity and have a strong desire to mock Christians and morality. The latest example of this is a program on the TV Land network titled IMPASTOR. The premise is that an immoral con-man takes on the identity of a gay pastor of a Lutheran church in a small town...
LORD OF THE RINGS Actor Speaks Out on the Persecution of Christians
By Diana Tyler
"We have lost our moral compass completely, and, unless we find it, we’re going to lose our civilization.”
The impassioned statement above could very well belong in one of the most beloved epics of all time, THE LORD OF THE RINGS, but in fact, it was spoken not by one of the film’s characters, but by one of its actors.
John Rhys-Davies, who played an axe-wielding dwarf warrior named Gimli in the THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, spoke candidly on Adam Carolla’s podcast last week on the ever compelling and ever arguable subject of good and evil.
“There is an extraordinary silence in the West,” said the Welsh actor on Carolla’s podcas...
