Kevin Sorbo, the actor who stars in the newly released "God's Not Dead" film, says he is on Hollywood's blacklist for simply having a conservative view on politics and social issues, which has ultimately cost him acting jobs.
"I'm not a party guy. There are people on both sides of the political fence that I don't agree with. To me, I look to see who I honestly think is going to be the best person. So, that, in itself, is enough to get me blacklisted in Hollywood," Sorbo said, according to The Epoch Times. "They (Hollywood) scream for tolerance, they scream for freedom of speech but if you disagree at all with what they're saying then they can blacklist you. They have the power to do that."
Sorbo considers himself one of the very few actors in Hollywood brave enough to voice his political opinion, and admits to voting Democratic and Republican. He also says he receives a lot of backlash for being Christian. more >>
There's an old joke in Christian circles that goes like this: Someone had written in graffiti the famous quote from the 19th century atheist philosopher: "God is dead. Signed, Nietzsche." Underneath it, someone else wrote: "Nietzsche is dead. Signed, God."
There's a new movie out called, God's Not Dead. I hadn't heard about it, except for a word of praise from Ted Baehr, publisher of Movieguide, who provides a biblical critique of films.
My wife and I enjoyed the movie very much. What I found fascinating was the spontaneous applause from the audience. It was unusual. This wasn't in the Bible belt. It was in cosmopolitan Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. more >>
Russell Crowe has something to say to the critics of his upcoming film, "Noah."
The film adaptation of the biblical story found in Genesis has been dividing opinion in the faith community well before its March 28 release date.
While some have questioned the movie and several Muslim countries have banned it, the film's title character Crowe, 49, said it has the potential to spark positive dialogue. more >>
Pastor Craig Gross, whose young son stars in "Noah," is defending the film against critics in the Christian community, citing the uproar over the film as "embarrassing."
The pastor is the founder of XXXchurch and is also the father of Nolan Gross, who stars in the Darren Aronofsky-directed "Noah" as young Ham. Gross spoke to The Christian Post about the widespread criticism of "Noah," sharing his perspective as both a Christian leader and as a father.
Evangelist Ray Comfort released "Noah – And the Last Days" days before the upcoming Hollywood epic starring Russell Crowe hits theaters. Comfort maintains that his version is "based on truth."
"Hollywood's [version] is listed as 'fantasy, while ours is based on the truth," Comfort contended. "Theirs is entertainment that will cost you. Ours is life-changing and will be freely available on YouTube."
The 30-minute "documovie" by Living Waters Publications features man-on-the-street interviews, with many saying they don't believe the biblical account of Noah and the ark is real. Comfort makes the case for the ark and compares the days of Noah and the flood to the 21st century. more >>
