I Guess It Takes Courage to be a Christian on Christmas

I don’t know what I just watched but… I’m getting this funny feeling inside… like Jesus and ‘Merica all rolled into one. And it makes me want to take down the ACLU.


That’s from a real 2012 movie called “Last Ounce of Courage.” Because, as we know, it’s very hard to be a Christian in America.

‘Duck Dynasty’ Patriarch Suspended from Show for Equating Homosexuality with Bestiality

“Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson was suspended by A&E today for bigoted remarks he made in a GQ profile about gays and lesbians:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Yep, homosexuality is the same as bestiality and prostitution and adultery and intoxication and greed.

Of course, the right-wingers are screaming that the reaction from A&E (and everyone else) is some violation of free speech:

Three High School Seniors Bring a ‘Dirty Mag’ to a Church Lock-In and End Up Being Terrorized by a Demon

Yeah, sure you’ll get my attention with a line like this:

Parents met with church leaders to discuss criminal charges they were considering filing against the church for child endangerment, neglect and torture.

But it’s not a news account. It’s part of the fake story behind a new Christian horror film, The Lock In, that purports to show how watching porn is a danger to one’s mortal soul. The working premise seems to be that Beelzebub lurks inside lady parts. Or maybe that’s chlamydia. (See? I’m already confused.)

Anyway, I know I had you at “Christian horror film,” so without further ado, here’s the trailer:

That Is Not What the Bible Says…

It’s months too late to be “relevant”… but I don’t think the timing is the problem here:

God Remains Inexplicably Deaf to Rick Santorum’s Prayers (Again): ‘The Christmas Candle’ Bombs at the Box Office

Max Lucado is a Texas preacher and writer with 80 million books in print, including Just Like Jesus and When God Whispers Your Name.

Rick Santorum is the über-Catholic former Senator from Pennsylvania who, after losing his bid for re-election in 2006, made a failed presidential run, and then announced he would start a film company to make good old-fashioned, pro-Christian, family-friendly fare. He’s on record as calling Hollywood “the devil’s playground.”

Let’s see if these two were made for each other. (No, not that way.) Santorum produced a treacly Hallmark-meets-Dickens period movie, in theaters now, based on Lucado’s The Christmas Candle.

Here’s the trailer:

The critics have shown themselves somewhere between lukewarm and ice cold.
