Actors Chris Pratt and Anna Faris wanted to start their family soon after getting married, but they never planned on a medical crisis bringing them closer together. Pratt recently opened up about the birth of his premature son Jack and how it restored his faith in God.
"We were scared for a long time," Pratt said of the time his son Jack spent in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit after being born nine weeks early. "We prayed a lot."
"It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really defined it," Pratt told People magazine. "The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect." more >>
Several months before "Left Behind" opens in theaters, a prominent Christian philosopher is reminding the American church that the movie's claims about the rapture are false.
"This doctrine is not really found in the book of Revelation. If you read the book of Revelation, you won't find any mention of the rapture there," said William Craig, a Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology and Professor of Philosophy at Houston Baptist University.
Instead, Craig says, the idea of the rapture comes from a "misinterpretation of 1 and 2 Thessalonians where Paul is describing the coming of the Lord and resurrection of the dead, which will occur at His coming." more >>
The first official trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey," a film based on the bestselling E. L. James book series, hit the internet last week like a tidal wave, spawning various reaction videos and a media frenzy.
The trailer shows the book's character Christian Grey seducing the young Anastasia Steele through various unconventional sexual encounters. He utters the words "I don't do romance" during the clip, setting the tone for what type of experience viewers should expect.
Dr. Juli Slattery, clinical psychologist and co-author of Pulling Back the Shades: Erotica, Intimacy and the Longings of a Woman's Heart, feels that the movie will add to a movement that has already been working to normalize pornography for women. more >>
Despite a dismissive attitude by liberal politicians towards filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza and his latest movie, "America: Imagine a World Without Her," a Florida state senator plans to introduce a bill that would make the docudrama required viewing for most teenagers in the state.
Republican Alan Hays said he'll introduce his one-page bill later this year. The bill states that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object, according to The Hollywood Reporter and other media.
"I saw the movie and walked out of the theater and said, 'Wow, our students need to see this.' And it's my plan to show it to my colleagues in the legislature, too, before they're asked to vote on the bill," Hays said. more >>
