Mel Gibson has a few new films in the works but it's his film "Passion of the Christ" that is making headlines after Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt compared the 2004 film to Scientology propaganda.
During an interview with Marlon James for The New York Times Style magazine, Pitt talked about wanting to make a film about Pontius Pilate that "won't be for the 'Passion' crowd."
His interviewer James shared with the "Benjamin Button" actor that Gibson's film drove him out of the church, to which Pitt laughed and replied, "I felt like I was just watching an L. Ron Hubbard propaganda film." more >>

Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church released a video prayer on Sunday, the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, by noting that the world seems to be "getting darker" and "decaying" due to terrorism and other divisions.
Warren said all of America marked "the worst terror attacks in its history" on Sunday, when nearly 3,000 people were killed back in 2001.
The pastor said that while the attacks are fresh in many people's minds, a freshman in high school today was not even born when that occurred, and so as the Bible says, it is important to remember the lessons of the past. more >>
WASHINGTON – "Duck Dynasty" TV star Alan Robertson said Saturday morning that he can't remember a time in America were Christian values and religious liberty were more under attack than they are today.
Robertson, the son of Duck Commander founder Phil Robertson and who some regard as the "beardless brother," spoke to a room full of evangelical and social conservative voters at the Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit and proclaimed that he is not afraid to face liberal backlash for publicly voicing his beliefs on biblical teachings on sexuality and marriage.
"We are in a perilous time, where from positions of power, I don't know that if in my lifetime I have ever seen more of an attack on traditional values, traditional family and really, religious liberty," Robertson asserted. more >>

After Clinton spoke Friday night at a fundraiser in Manhattan and said that "you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," social conservatives and evangelicals gathered at the annual Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit didn't take too kindly to Clinton's statement.
In a news conference discussing the summit and FRC's national 20-state bus tour over the next two months leading up to the election, Perkins was asked for a response to Clinton's "deplorables" comment. more >>
