February 23, 2010

HOLLYWOOD, CA - Moviegoers prefer movies with Christian and biblical values, reveals an annual study of box office figures among the major movies produced by Hollywood.   According to Movieguide®'s 2010 Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry, of the movies released by the six major studios and the major independent studios in 2009, movies with very strong Christian worldviews (such as "The Blind Side" and "Disney's A Christmas Carol") averaged $75.7 million per movie at the North American box office in 2009, but movies with very strong Non-Christian worldviews (such as "Brüno") averaged only $26.9.   "Movies with very strong Christian worldviews average the most money by far," said Dr. Baehr, Founder and Publisher of Moviegui...

February 19, 2010

About two-thirds of American adults, 63% or 146.66 million adults, say they are church or synagogue members, according to a December 2009 poll conducted by Gallup. If one includes the children of those Americans, then that would mean that about 194.42 million people in the United States are members of a church or synagogue! This raises the question, what is the mass media of entertainment, including the "news" media and Hollywood, doing to meet the needs and desires of those 194 million people? Gallup noted in 2007 that only 17% of Americans, or about 52.46 million people, say they never attend a church service - Source: Gallup Poll, 12/24/09.   ...
 

 
Christian Beliefs Increase in 2009
February 19, 2010

A Harris Interactive® Poll of 2,303 American adults on the Internet, taken Nov. 2-11, 2009, found that 82% of Americans believe in God and 73% believe Jesus is God and/or the Son of God. These numbers reflect an increase of two percentage points from the same Harris poll taken in 2008. No wonder the number of movies with at least some positive Christian content or values increased in 2009 compared to the previous two years. By contrast, belief in Darwin's theory of evolution, ghosts, reincarnation, UFOs, astrology, and witches all seems to be dropping. These positive trends reflect what God teaches us about God, Jesus Christ, science, and theology in the ancient, historical, inerrant documents of the Bible, whose historical reliability ...
