Frank Wright, president of the National Religious Broadcasters, warned at the recent NRB Convention in Nashville that new proposed laws and regulations in Congress and President Obama's administration could be used against Christian broadcasters and preachers who label homosexuality a sin, who say that Jesus is the only way to God, or who don't provide anti-Christian "balance" on their radio programs.
Hate crimes legislation protecting "sexual orientation and gender identity" was introduced in January in Congress.
Also, President Obama's top advisor, David Axelrod, from Chicago, recently admitted to Fox News, that Obama and his new FCC commissioner may indeed consider supporting the application of a "Fairness Doctrine" against talk radio....
Many people, especially the elderly and those who have "atypical" conditions or who need experimental treatments, will be denied medical care under the "stimulus" bill signed by President Obama on February 17, according to healthcare expert Betsy McCaughey, chairman of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths, constitutional scholar and former Lieutenant Governor of New York (1995-1998).
The bill slows the development and use of new medications and technologies because they drive up costs. It also encourages elderly patients to forego treatment of many conditions that come with old age.
The provisions are similar to former regulations in the United Kingdom where it took nearly three years of protests to do away with a rule that said elder...
President Obama has appointed pornography advocate David Ogden as second in command to the nation's very liberal new Attorney General, Eric Holder.
"David Ogden is a hired gun from Playboy and the ACLU," Fidelis, a pro-family organization, says. "Ogden's record is nothing short of obscene. He has represented Playboy in multiple cases, Penthouse Magazine, the ACLU, and the largest distributor of hardcore pornography videos."
For example, Ogden represented Playboy and Penthouse to fight attempts to put filters on computers at federally-funded libraries.
MOVIEGUIDE® also opposes the appointment of this misguided person to the U.S. Dept. of Justice. Ogden clearly is not sensitive to the civil rights of women and children.

Shortly after becoming President, Barack Hussein Obama did away with George Bush's regulations preventing the use of taxpayer money to promote abortion, the murder of unborn children, overseas.
President Obama's new regulations are expected to kill more babies in Africa than any other continent.
The question arises, How many black babies does President Obama want to abort today?
If President Obama is going to support these nasty, merciless babykillers, how can he be trusted to do anything else, much less properly follow the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, both of which overtly and clearly protect the right to life?
Los Angeles, Calif. - "Moviegoers in 2008 preferred movies with Christian and Biblical worldviews reflecting traditional values," reports family and child advocate and media scholar Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission® (CFTVC), a Christian advocacy group based in Southern California.
Dr. Baehr said moviegoers in America and overseas also rejected movies that attacked Christianity, the Bible and "the traditional values of Western Civilization."
For example, he noted that CFTVC's annual analysis of the Top 270 or so movies released in 2008 showed that movies with strong or very strong Christian, Biblical or traditional worldviews (numbering 64 movies in total) averaged $39,778,002 million in America...
Los Angeles, Calif. - The Annual Movieguide® study of what movies do best at the box office shows that moviegoers prefer movies with Christian, Biblical worldviews much more than movies mocking God, Jesus Christ or the Bible.
According to the non-profit family guide to movies and entertainment's 2009 Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry of 2008 movies, movies with very strong Christian, biblical and/or moral worldviews did five to 33 times better at the theatrical box office in America and Canada in 2008 than movies with very strong secular humanist, nihilistic, anti-Christian, and/or anti-biblical worldviews.
The movies with very strong Christian, biblical and/or moral worldviews included such movies as PRINCE CASPIAN, FIREPROOF...
Moviegoers Prefer Clean Movies Without Explicit Sex, Nudity, Foul Language, and Drug Abuse, Annual Report Shows Again
Los Angeles, Calif. - Once again, Movieguide® Magazine's Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry shows that moviegoers prefer movies with no explicit sex, nudity and foul language.
"This was especially clear in 2008," said Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide®: A Family Guide to Movies, Entertainment and Culture. "Movies with no foul language, sex and nudity averaged significantly more money at the theatrical box office in America and Canada than movies with some or a lot of such vulgarity, sex or nudity."
Movieguide®'s analysis of the top movies released in 2008 also showed that moviegoers rejected...
The Artistic Merits of FIREPROOF
By Douglas Lloyd McIntosh
Years before anybody ever heard of Yogi Berra, the great producer and Hollywood pioneer Samuel Goldwyn became famous for a series of verbally maladroit pearls of dubious wisdom collectively known as Goldwynisms. Every connoisseur has his personal favorites: "Include me out," "Flashbacks are a thing of the past," or "Don't worry about the war, it's all over but the shooting." One of the greatest is, "I don't want to be surrounded by Yes Men, I want people who'll disagree with me even if it costs them their jobs!" My own personal fave driven home by long years in the Hollywood trenches is this one, "A verbal agreement isn't worth the paper it's printed on."
Probably the most of...

The headline to a June 23, 2008 article in the Los Angeles Times declared, “The Sky Is Falling on Indie Film.” In the article Patrick Goldstein explains that of the 5,000 films submitted to the Sundance Film Festival, fewer are getting a theatrical release and even fewer are making any money. He reports only five of the 5,000 (one tenth of 1%) actually make money.
Goldstein discussed remarks made by Mark Gill to the L.A. Film Festival Financing Conference. Gill, who has worked with Miramax and Warner Independent Pictures, laid out the bad news about the independent film industry but concluded with, “As simple as it sounds, it all comes down to a good story, well told.” Goldstein disagreed....
Hollywood, Calif. - A seven-year study of the top 275 or so movies released each year in the United States by Hollywood clearly shows that Americans prefer conservative, patriotic, pro-American movies with traditional, Judeo-Christian values and free market ideals rather than movies pushing an anti-capitalist, socialist, atheist, Communist, or anti-Christian agenda.
"Movies with strong or very strong Judeo-Christian values, capitalist ideals, patriotism, anti-Communist leanings, and/or Pro-American attitudes, do much better at the box office than movies promoting Marxism, political correctness, atheism, and anti-Christian content," says Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE®: A Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment and ...
