Clint Eastwood, director of the MOVIEGUIDE® Award-winning movies GRAN TORINO and CHANGELING, doesn't like political correctness.
He said people live in fear of being labeled a racist for telling ethic jokes or jokes about nationality.
"People have lost their sense of humor," Eastwood said. "In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth. Otherwise, you will be insulted as a racist. I find that ridiculous.
"I don't want to be politically correct. We're all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything."
MOVIEGUIDE® also notes that, by bandying the word "racist" around so much, the term tends to lose its meaning when it real...
The British government is putting out a leaflet telling parents to avoid convincing their teenage children about the immorality of pre-marital sex.
"Trying to convince them of what's right and wrong may discourage them from being open," the leaflet, titled "Talking to Your Teenager About Sex and Relationships," says. Instead, your child should be encouraged to "form their own views."
Never mind all the sexually transmitted diseases that come with pre-marital sex, including the deadly AIDS virus spread by homosexual activities.

MOVIEGUIDE®, through its sister organization, The Christian Film & Television Commission®, has filed a complaint with the Motion Picture Association of America about the R rating for the movie ‘Watchmen,' which opens tonight after midnight.
"This movie contains extreme violence, nudity, and sex, including rape" said Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman and spokesmen of the Commission. "Throughout most of the whole picture, one male character walks around completely naked, with his private parts waving in the breeze.
"This kind of content used to be rated X or NC-17," Dr. Baehr added. "The motion picture industry keeps changing its standards. No wonder the MPAA's rating system confuses parents."
Dr. Baehr said, "The MPAA office told us ...
A study in the United Kingdom overseas has found that teenagers are spending an average of 31 hours weekly on the Internet.
The study by www.cybersentinel.co.uk found that about 3.5 of those hours are spent communicating with friends and about two hours on YouTube and in chat rooms. Also, just over one hour is devoted to looking at cosmetic surgery procedures, including breast enlargements and collagen implants. Another 1.5 hours are spent on pregnancy and "family planning sites, and about one hour and 35 minutes investigating weight loss and diets. Finally, at least three hours are spent online each week working on homework.
One quarter, or 25%, of the 1,000 teenagers polled said they regularly speak to strangers online but think it is h...
The Brazilian government has decided to force 92% of its citizens to change their views that "God made men and women with different sexes so that they could fulfill their role and have children."
The new plan, which will be launched in May, is expected to attack heterosexual families as "homophobic," label all criticism of homosexual behavior as "criminal," and forcibly "re-educate" (i.e., brainwash) the public.
The plan's title? The "National Plan for the Promotion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Citizens."

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...
