The recent announcement that Disney would be buying Marvel was not exactly greeted with victory shouts of, " I'm going to Disneyworld!" Fans of both companies have strong misgivings about the matchup, and since I spent 20 years hosting the children's radio show, SECRET CLUBHOUSE, they have had no problem seeking me out to let me know what they think about it.
Disney Dads and Mouse Moms are worried about what might be moving into The Magic Kingdom. They point out, rightly so, that many of the Marvel titles are much darker, and contain more adult content, than they did when they were children. They worry that other parents who fondly remember the Spiderman and Hulk of their childhoods, will unknowingly expose their children ...

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE is a distinctive movie about a 9-year-old boy named Max who gets into trouble with his mother, runs away from home, and finds a strange island inhabited by large untamed creatures who act as wild as he feels. It's an allegorical tale for older children, teenagers, and adults about love, family, and friendship overcoming anger, bitterness, and rebellion.
The voice actors playing the Wild Things had no idea, however, how Director Spike Jonze wanted them to develop their characters.
"We started off at his [Spike's] house, and we went up into the mountains," said actor Forest Whitaker, who gave voice to the Wild Thing called Ira.
"That's where we started a dodgeball fight up in the hills. Then...
The Barna Group reported Sept. 14 that, at the same time that the number of female senior pastors in mainline Protestant churches has been increasing, the median number of adults during an average weekend going to Protestant church services has dropped.
A large percent of female pastors, 58%, are affiliated with a mainline Protestant denomination, such as American Baptist, Episcopalian, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the United Church of Christ, United Methodist, and the Presbyterian Church USA, according to Barna.
Of course, some of these mainline denominations are also starting to promote same-sex marriage and have even hired active homosexual bishops and pastors who refuse to turn away from their sin.
A Sept. 14, 2009 article in Frontpage Magazine shows that President Obama and his wife, Michelle, and Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama's top advisors, are linked to another Communist radical from the 1960s, Marilyn Katz, president and Founder of MK Communications (see article at http://frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=36289).
According to the article, Katz provided "security" for the radical Neo-Marxist group Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at the 1968 Democratic Convention and has been associated with Marxist groups and the Democratic Party for decades.
She helped found the Marxist group the New American Movement (NAM), which included Communist Party USA members. A 1973 NAM pamphlet declared support for Communists in Russia, ...
Christian actress Patricia Mauceri of the daytime soap opera ONE LIFE TO LIVE told Fox News recently that ABC, which is owned by The Walt Disney Company, fired her for her religious beliefs because she objected to out-of-character "gay-friendly" dialogue in the script.
"This goes against everything I am," said Mauceri, who was on the show for 14 years.
An ABC spokesman called such claims "frivolous."

Homosexual activists complain that their opponents use fear tactics against them to scare parents, but the Maine Human Rights Commission recently forced the Asa C. Adams Elementary School in Orono to let a 12-year-old boy use the girls restroom.
The boy apparently "thinks" he's a girl.
Stupid, inane and loony decisions like this are the kind of thing that radical activists support and that their evil ideology intentionally creates. Sadly, too many leaders in America's two political parties kowtow to these radicals.
Normal American citizens need to stand up against this kind of perversion that is corrupting America's culture morally, spiritually and psychologically.

At the same time that our mission station was being bombed by the National Islamic Front government in Sudan, fellow missionaries were organizing "Reconciliation Walks" to the Middle East to apologize for "The Crusades." As our church services and schools were under aerial and artillery bombardment by Jihadists, this seemed rather bizarre.
Some claim that ...

"Curse the day," the fleet messengers announced. "Constantinople has fallen to the Turks. Byzantium is no more." The shattering news was announced in Genoa at wharf side early in the afternoon on July 8 in 1453. The great city had gone down fighting, with Emperor Constantine bravely positioned at the head of his troops. But the fierce Muslim tide was too much. All Christian resistance was quickly thwarted. The conquest was complete by midmorning. The massacre that followed was utterly horrifying - Byzantine citizens were cut down like grass in a meadow, holy relics were tossed into the sea, diplomatic consuls from the West were tortured and executed, women were raped, children were enslaved, and the...

Editor's Note: William J. Federer is author of the best-selling book, "What Every American Needs to Know About the Qur'an - A History of Islam & the United States." In this article, he shows how President Obama distorted the history of Europe and whitewashed the murderous history of the Muslim faith. The article is reprinted here with permission.
In his speech in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009, President Obama stated, "As a student of history, I also know civilization's debt to Islam. It was Islam that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe's Renaissance."

For years, my children have enjoyed relatively innocent and agreeable programming on cable networks such as Nickelodeon, Disney and their subsidiaries. I've often said the silly sitcoms of the 80's merely moved to cable and were re-engineered for a new generation.
However, I was not surprised over the last decade to see a disquieting agenda slowly and methodically slipped into new shows and advertising. Hoping to never have to pull the plug on a channel that brings us a chipper sea sponge and his goofy friends, I have kept a wary eye on it. Sometimes an ad would air that was slightly age inappropriate, but nothing to strike over. Then, a new show comes out and is number one in the ratings. . . but, the characters wear out ...
