Chris Hardwick is known most for his post show comments for the popular AMC show "The Walking Dead." While hosting a show a day after his dad passes away, he delivers a powerful and touching message about family that is PERFECT for the holidays.
Losing someone we are close too can sometimes be the hardest thing to get over. Especially if it is a parent or close sibling. We never know when we are going to lose someone, so it is important to always love and be as nice as we could when you are together.
Immediately following his show, Chris delivers a message to clarify how important it is to cherish the ones who love us. No matter how much they may bother us, these are people who love us unconditionally. He goes on to tell the audience that no matter how much they bother us, we should appreciate them. more >>
Joaquin Phoenix recently addressed his family's brief connection with the Children of God religious group, explaining his parents' desire to belong to a community who believed in Jesus.
The "Inherent Vice" star said that his experience with the religious group as a child was only fleeting and that his parents had wanted to belong to a group of people who shared their faith in Jesus Christ. However, Children of God has a long history of sexual exploitation. It first formed in Huntington Beach, Calif. in 1968 and consisted mostly of converts from the hippie movement. With an initial message of salvation and spiritual "revolution," the group later began using a method of evangelism known as "Flirty Fishing," which uses sex to exhibit God's love and win converts.
"My parents had a religious experience and felt strongly about it," Phoenix told Playboy magazine. "They wanted to share that with other people who wanted to talk about their experience with religion. These friends were like, 'Oh, we believe in Jesus as well.' I think my parents thought they'd found a community that shared their ideals." more >>

Kirk Cameron is introducing a new way of thinking about Christmas and its many traditions this year with the film "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas," in theaters on Friday.
