Movieguide's Editor-in-Chief, Ted Baehr, who also serves as chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission, recently urged believers to take a moral stand in Hollywood and redeem American media in a push for more wholesome entertainment and films that glorify God.
In an impassioned speech at the Skyline Future Conference in La Mesa, California, which kicked off on Sunday, the prominent media critic said Christians have the power to transform the media by stepping out of the church and into the world. He pointed out that media today "is very powerful" because it's educating and influencing millenials.
"I want you to hear good news because this is not about me, it's about being equipped to take every thought captive for Jesus Christ in the media," said Baehr, whose wife, Lili, was also in the packed audience. more >>

Staver, whose Liberty Institute advocates for numerous Christians persecuted by the government for upholding their faith, further explained that if same-sex marriage is ruled constitutional, it will not be something that Christians will simply be able to ignore. more >>
