The producer for the movie "I'm Not Ashamed," starring "Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson, is accusing Google of having an anti-Christian bias in its decision to remove the film's trailer from YouTube for over a year and is now considering legal action.
Chuck Howard, a former music producer-turned-filmmaker, created a YouTube channel last year in order to publish a movie trailer and other behind-the-scenes footage associated with the film "I'm Not Ashamed," a faith-based film based on the story and faith of the first student to be killed in the Columbine High School massacre of 1999, Rachel Scott.
The trailer for the film was viewed over 5 million times before the online film sharing site took down the channel and the trailer last October. Additionally, YouTube has not provided the filmmakers with concrete details on why the company removed the channel. more >>
Evangelist Ray Comfort is accusing atheist users of down-voting "The Atheist Delusion" movie on film-ratings website IMDB, after the documentary had its premiere at Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham's Ark Encounter theme park in Kentucky.
"Within the first 24 hours of its release, 61 atheists have rated it as a one-star movie. This pulls the average down to a 3.5 stars. That means to someone wanting to know, it's really bad," Comfort wrote on Facebook on Sunday, referring the "The Atheist Delusion" and it's 3.1/10 rating on the IMDB website.
"They have done this with most of our productions, but this one is going to be a real target because it disproves atheism with one scientific question," he added. more >>

The signage was to stay up at Subway-Phillips 66 in Lincoln, Nebraska, until Nov. 10, according to the contract the Lincoln Atheists signed with Lamar Advertising, but it was brought down earlier this week, Lincoln Journal Star reported.
The billboard was taken down after several residents threatened to stop doing business at the gas station and store, whose space the advertising company used for the signage. more >>
Sweden, sometimes referred to as the "least religious nation in the western world," is opening up its first ever atheist cemetery, which is devoid of any and all religious symbols.
The Local reported on Wednesday that the graveyard is opening in Borlänge in central Sweden, and was prompted by the idea of local teacher Josef Erdem.
"There's a place on this earth for everybody and we shouldn't be limited in how we choose to live or how we choose to be buried," Erdem said. more >>
Members of the atheist community have been ramping up their criticism of the faith-based movie "I'm Not Ashamed" that opens in theaters on Friday, and are accusing it of telling lies about the Columbine High School massacre of 1999.
Fox News reported on Thursday that websites such as That Atheist Show are outraged over a scene in the film that depicts the first victim of the massacre, Rachel Scott, standing up for her Christian faith and answering that she still believes in God after one of the two teen shooters asks her that question before she's killed.
Some atheists are insisting that no such conversation took place, arguing that police reports from the events on April 20, 1999, do not align with what the movie is trying to present. more >>
A Christian philosophy professor said at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual apologetics conference on Saturday that in some sense, the atheist argument that God is not necessary for morality can hold water, but in another it fails to see that God is needed for humans to achieve their ultimate purpose.
"Is God necessary for objective morality? There is a sense in which that answer is no, God is not necessary for objective morality. I also think there is a different sense in which the answer is yes," Richard Howe, philosopher and professor emeritus at Southern Evangelical Seminary, said at the 23rd annual SES National Conference on Christian Apologetics. more >>
