God’s Not Dead 2 Had a Lousy Weekend at the Box Office Compared to the Original

When God’s Not Dead came out two years ago, it really was a phenomenon. That’s not to say the movie was any good, but it certainly found an audience that wanted to see it and talk about it, even if that meant trashing it. Call it the evangelical version of Fifty Shades of Grey.

As if he’s bringing something new and refreshing to the table.

This past week, Henry spoke with actor DJ Qualls and told him he should be skeptical of other “psychics” because, you know, “anybody can tell you your loved one loves you.”
