Movieguide® Asks Sony's Lynton for Healthier Movies
March 23, 2010

At the recent ShoWest Convention in Las Vegas Sony Pictures chief Michael Lynton called on theater owners to offer audiences healthier snacks. Movieguide® calls on Mr. Lynton to offer healthier movies. While Movieguide® commends Sony for movies like CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS and JULIE & JULIA in 2009, but they also offered UNDERWORLD 3, YEAR ONE and FIRED UP, each of which received a -4 (Abhorrent) rating from Movieguide®. In Matthew 15: 17-20 Jesus said "Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.' For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, ...
 

 
Financial Chaos - A Memo From 2005
March 23, 2010

By John M. Templeton June 15, 2005 Financial Chaos - probably in many nations in the next five years. The word chaos is chosen to express likelihood of reduced profit margin at the same time as acceleration in cost of living. Increasingly often, people ask my opinion on what is likely to happen financially. I am now thinking that the dangers are more numerous and larger than ever before in my lifetime. Quite likely, in the early months of 2005, the peak of prosperity is behind us. In the past century, protection could be obtained by keeping your net worth in cash or government bonds. Now the surplus capacities are so great, that most currencies and bonds are likely to continue losing their purchasing power. Mortgages and ...
 

 
AMISH GRACE - Coming to a Greater Understanding of God's Grace
March 22, 2010

By Dr. Ted Baehr and Jeff Holder The Lifetime Channel and its new outlet, the Lifetime Movie Network, are known for its interest in programming for women, some of it from a feminist worldview. This Sunday evening, March 28, 2010, however, at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and 5 p.m. Pacific Time, the Lifetime Movie Network is giving viewers the chance to see something from a very strong, traditional Christian viewpoint. The occasion is the television premiere of a wonderful movie made for television called AMISH GRACE, based on the book by Donald B. Kraybill, Steven M. Nolt and David L. Weaver-Zercher. AMISH GRACE is the true story how an Amish community forgives a man named Charlie Roberts who kills many of their young schoolgirls in cold blood. T...
 

 
Conservatives Correct Faulty Textbooks in Texas
March 22, 2010

Ten conservatives on the Texas Board of Education corrected faulty history and economics textbooks recently by stressing the benefits of America's free market capitalist system, showing students the Christian heritage and Christian worldview of most of the Founding Fathers, and making sure students learn about the conservative resurgence in the 1980s and 1990s. The rulings by the board will affect the rest of the country, because Texas is one of the largest buyers of textbooks, despite the Digital Age in which we live. "We are adding balance," said Dr. Don McLeroy, the leader of the conservative faction on the board. "History has already been skewed. Academia is skewed too far to the left." The board also rejected the unconstitutional no...
 

 
Another Underage Child Stars in an R-Rated Sex Movie
March 19, 2010

Actress Dakota Fanning's irresponsible handlers, including, apparently, her mother, have put the 15-year-old star in another adult drama, this time one that includes a "steamy" lesbian kiss, a "heavily implied" lesbian sex scene, and scenes of snorting cocaine in bathrooms. The movie is about the early career of openly lesbian rock star Joan Jett and her first band. Even Kirk Honeycutt, a film critic for The Hollywood Reporter, wondered whether the movie glamorizes the addictive behavior depicted in the script. Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE®, told WorldNetDaily, the famous news website, "I think fame and fortune have corrupted [Dakota's] mother, and they have unfortunately made some bad calls that are getting worse ...
 

 
The Story of Shelley Lubben, ?Former Porn Star
March 17, 2010

by Judith Reisman, PhD Pulitzer Prize-winning author Chris Hedges, in Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle, writes that the “cruelty” of the “new” pornography “takes a toll on the bodies, as well as the emotions, of porn actresses.” But someone is trying to help them: The Pink Cross booth has a table of anti-porn tracts and is set up in the far corner of the Sands Expos Convention Center in Las Vegas. It is an unlikely participant at the annual Adult Video News (AVN) expo. Pink Cross is a Christian outreach program for women in the porno industry, run by ex-porn star Shelley Lubben. I first watched Shelley Lubben on YouTube in early 2009. An “ex-porn star,” she has created the Pink Cross ...
 

 
Thank God for Small Favors – Court Okays Pledge of Allegiance
March 17, 2010

MOVIEGUIDE® views with happiness and relief the ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which tends to be very left-wing, that the Pledge of Allegiance and the phrase "one nation under God" do not violate the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Any sensible, well-read student of our Constitution knows that this is the case, but we wonder why it took so long for this particular court to recognize it? And, we can't help but also wonder why one of the three judges voted against the Pledge? The other thing that bothers MOVIEGUIDE®, however, is why the American people have to wait for a federal court to rule that the Pledge of Allegiance and such phrases as "In God we trust" on our money are constitutional. In actual fac...
 

 
Will America Idolize Homosexuality?
March 15, 2010

By David Outten For eight years AMERICAN IDOL has been one of the most popular programs on television. Last year it attracted enough Christian viewers to give clean-cut Kris Allen what appeared to be an upset victory over the very talented, openly homosexual Adam Lambert. This year AMERICAN IDOL has replaced judge Paula Abdul with the famed lesbian celebrity Ellen Degeneres. Why? Like President Obama declaring June 2009 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month this choice is intended to send a message: "Homosexuality is normal and acceptable." The path to legal gay marriage is paved by the social acceptance of homosexuality. The largest voting block holding up progress (in the minds of those who want gay marriage) is Chri...
 

 
Abstinence Education Works!
March 13, 2010

A new study has concluded that Abstinence Education in schools is effective in reducing the level of sexual activity among youth. The same study went on to say that education programs promoting contraception as the answer appear to be ineffective. Leslee Unruh, President of the National Abstinence Clearinghouse, says of the abstinence focus, "These programs help develop self control and self esteem, teaching kids they do not need to fall prey to the game of Russian Roulette with condoms."

Global Warming ‘Scientist’ Recants Two Claims
March 13, 2010

Leading global warming scientists Phil Jones recently admitted to the BBC that there has been no "statistically significant" warming in the last 15 years! Jones also admitted that it was warmer on the Earth between 800 and 1300 A.D., when there were no cars or factories or large urban areas, than it is now. Jones recently resigned as head of the climate research unit at the University of East Anglia, when emails showed that he and other "climate change" scientists were manipulating data to strengthen their arguments for radically new energy policies to fight "global warming." Despite these events, Jones maintains that there has been a warming trend since the 1950s due to man-made activities. - Sources: Newsmax, 02/22/10. Photo by Don S...
