The documentary film "Hating Breitbart," that takes a look at the late online media mogul Andrew Breitbart, opened in limited release this weekend in its less-cursing, PG-13 format after its producers decided to intentionally target Christian moviegoers as well, says the movie's director.
"We wanted to capture Andrew as he was: loud and passionate when he saw liberal hypocrisy in the mainstream media. But we also wanted to make sure that all Americans can see what a fascinating man he was so we decided to create a PG-13 version. Andrew had tremendous respect for the Christian community and its leadership and I know he would have wanted them to be able to enjoy this movie as well," said Director Andrew Marcus in an exclusive statement to The Christian Post.
Recent screenings leading up to this weekend's release of "Hating Breitbart" have included stops at Christian colleges such as Wheaton College and Biola University. Additionally, the film was shown at the Colorado-based Focus on The Family as well as a screening for journalists from The Christian Post and World Magazine. Singer Pat Boone, one of Hollywood's most prominent Christian leaders, was also given a special screening. more >>
Every member of Ohio's delegation to the U.S. Congress, including Republicans and Democrats, both senators and Speaker of the House John Boehner signed a letter to President Barack Obama asking him resolve the issue of orphans who have been adopted by American parents, but are not allowed to leave Russia.
Ohio families have been most affected by the ban, the letter states. The Russian government banned all adoptions to the United States in January. By one count, 230 families were already in the process of adopting a Russian child, but had not brought their child home when the ban was put in place.
The letter specifically asks Obama to speak to Russian President Vladimir Putin when he sees him in June. more >>
With the convictions in in the case against abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell – three counts of murdering live babies and one count of involuntary manslaughter – abortion is back in the national discussion.
It's pretty clear from the Grand Jury report that, during Gosnell's thirty plus year career, he likely murdered hundreds, if not thousands of babies. But because of the difficulty in documenting it all, he was just convicted of three.
Reports now are coming in from around the nation indicating that more Gosnell's are out there. more >>
John F. Kennedy as a candidate liked to tweak his opponent, Richard Nixon. When The Wall Street Journal criticized Republican Nixon, Kennedy jumped on it. "That's like L'Osservatore Romano criticizing the Pope!" The press corps knew that that Italian newspaper was the house organ of the Vatican. They loved the fact that Catholic Kennedy was throwing such a witty jab at Nixon.
So, we all need to pay attention when MSNBC's Chris Matthews criticizes President Obama. That's like L'Osservatore Romano knocking the Pope. Matthews was the kennel master for the lapdogs of the Obama media. He said in 2008 that he "felt a thrill going up my leg" whenever Mr. Obama spoke.
That was then. more >>
National Religious Broadcasters President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright asked members of Congress investigating the IRS over its alleged inappropriate scrutiny of conservative and faith-based groups to focus on First Amendment protection for such organizations.
"As Congress investigates these incidents at the IRS, and others that may surface in the days ahead, I ask that you emphasize the First Amendment rights of non-profit religious organizations and churches, which gives them constitutional authority to operate free from government entanglement," wrote Wright in a letter sent to House Speaker John Boehner and other Congressional leaders, including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
"Pernicious targeting of faith-based organizations by any state actor must not be tolerated," Wright added. "These IRS cases before the nation today appear to be just such entangling, oppressive, and constitutionally unsound situations that must be protected against." more >>
President Obama is suffering the not untypical reality of Second Term blues, or blahs. His administration is beset by scandals foreign and domestic. But his record can still be examined for a clear understanding of this president's preferences, namely home schooling.
Take the Romeike family, for instance. The Obama administration is relentlessly pursuing them through the courts. President Obama wants this family deported. These evangelical Christian home schoolers fled their native Germany in 2008. They pleaded for and obtained temporary asylum in this country.
They have lived since then in a quiet hamlet in Tennessee, home schooling their six children. Hannalore and husband Uwe were threatened with imprisonment and loss of custody of their children in Germany if they persisted in home schooling them. more >>
