Its formation comes after decades of debate and disagreement over issues ranging from salvation to sexuality, including homosexuality and the ordination of homosexual pastors.   - MSNBC, 12/03/08. ...
 

 
Most National Journalists Are Not Religious
January 08, 2009

Just 8% of journalists surveyed at national media outlets attend church or synagogue weekly, according to the Associated Press. In contrast, the Pew Research Center found that 39% of all Americans attend services weekly. Robert Case II, director of the World Journalism Institute, says many evangelical journalists start out in secular news organizations, but they soon join Christian media, which offer an environment more accepting of their beliefs and more family-friendly.  - Source:  citizenlink.com. ...
 

 
Church Kids Get Better Grades

How To Protect Yourself From Cyber Attacks by Dr. Ted Baehr
January 06, 2009

Recently, we suffered a major criminal cyber-attack on MOVIEGUIDE(r) and the Christian Film & Television Commission. A close friend and donor alerted us to the distribution of a number of blog postings that were supposedly from our organization but, in fact, were links to pornography, including sadomasochistic homosexual content. When we tracked the bogus links, they directed users not to our site on YouTube but to an intentionally deceptive imitation site. While we do have a MOVIEGUIDE(r) site on YouTube, in addition to Movieguide.org, the phony site included a picture of Dr. Ted Baehr alongside some very salacious and occult material, material on scientology, and hardcore S&M homosexual pornography. As soon as we discovered ...

December 17, 2008

Editor’s Note: Michael McManus is the author of "Ethics & Religion," a syndicated opinion column that appears in many US publications. Mike is also the founder and president of "Marriage Savers," a non-profit organization that prepares couples for marriage. This article is reprinted by permission.

The Key to Real Media Wisdom
December 17, 2008

The key to media wisdom is intelligence. Intelligence, as I’ve noted in the past, is not your IQ. Rather, it is the ability to learn from other sources so that you can grow into a discerning, thoughtful, Godly person. In the parlance of the CIA, intelligence is knowing where the weapons of mass destruction are or are not. It is not your bright idea of where they may or may not be. Sadly, however, multiculturalism, pluralism and political correctness have undermined intelligence and sold us the bill of goods of experiential learning. Experiential learning was a dismal failure when it was tried in the 1960s. It means that you have to try things yourself to find out if they’re good or bad. The ultimate conclusion of experiential learnin...
 

 
New Documentary Offers What May Be the Real Reasons Behind the World’s Current Economic Collapse
December 17, 2008

Many people in America, especially people active in the upper echelons of Wall Street and the power centers in Washington, D.C., are in panic mode concerning the recent economic meltdown this fall. Apparently, they are so panicked that America elected the most radical liberal ever to run for president. A new video documentary just may tell the real reasons behind the current economic crisis. And, it doesn’t point the finger at greedy investors and bankers on Wall Street. DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER: THE DECLINE OF THE HUMAN FAMILY is a well-produced, powerful warning about the dying population groups throughout much of the world and the dire consequences of that terrible trend. In the movie, scientists and social scientists from Harvard, the Un...
