If it wasn't for these two-sponsorship in racing wouldn't be what it is today. They changed the world I love so much! Thank you Don and Mr. McEwan!

Re: “Virgin Tales

I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.

Re: “My Little Pony Equestria Girls

This movie is from DHX, made by the FiM team. If there's anybody on the face of the planet earth who could made this good, it is them. They've spent the past 65 episodes proving that cartoons intended for girls don't have to suck, so their track record is unimpeachable. However, there is the chance their style could not translate well to the new demographic, but I trust Jayson Thiessen's team to do well here.

Re: “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience

Remember the old tv show? Well, this movie finally pays tribute to some of the timeless cliques of the tv show, and does them well. Thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this movie and loved how it ended with a future and a positive spin. Word of warning, if you have any vertigo problems, hold on tight during the Dubai building scenes. lol

Re: “The Fault in Our Stars

Witty, fresh, and well acted---While the story is somewhat predictable, the actors bring real emotion and understanding to their respective roles. I enjoyed the entire story as did my husband. I'd recommend this movie to any age group. We are not teens, but I teach teenagers and found this remarkably believable.

John Cena is getting better at acting. A good dvd to watch for lunch.

Re: “Lord, Save Us From Your Followers

This film is not what I expected. I expected to find a left-leaning film critical of Christianity and I found a basically even-handed look into how Americans deal with religion and politics. It is a compassionate look at our strengths and weaknesses.

Re: “Star Trek

I must not get it. I thought the movie was ticking along quite nicely until Spock (old Spock) appeared and started messing with the time-space continuum. I was lost for about 15 minutes until he disappeared, and then lost when he reappeared. I think it would have been a really good movie if the director didn't feel the need to please the fans from the past. It could have stood on its own, but sadly, missed the mark in my opinion.

Re: “A Story Worth Living

This is the first time in my life that I want to warn people not to go see a movie. This movie sucked. It is a story of a story of a story. There is nothing here. It tries really hard to be of some meaning but has none. It is an insult to series like A Long Way Around and A river Runs Through it to even be mentioned. I wanted to yell at the screen a few times because it was so forced. Here is a thought, tell us where you are, where you are going. Talk about things that happen on the trip and do not force scripted stories. I want my time back, complete waste

Re: “8: The Mormon Proposition

Marriage reflects the natural moral and social law evidenced the world over. As the late British social anthropologist Joseph Daniel Unwin noted in his study of world civilizations, any society that devalued the nuclear family soon lost what he called "expansive energy," which might best be summarized as society's will to make things better for the next generation. In fact, no society that has loosened sexual morality outside of man-woman marriage has survived.


Analyzing studies of cultures spanning several thousands of years on several continents, Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin found that virtually all political revolutions that brought about societal collapse were preceded by a sexual revolution in which marriage and family were devalued by the culture’s acceptance of homosexuality.


When marriage loses its unique status, women and children most frequently are the direct victims. Giving same-sex relationships or out-of-wedlock heterosexual couples the same special status and benefits as the marital bond would not be the expansion of a right but the destruction of a principle. . If the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage is broken, there is no logical stopping point for continuing the assault on marriage.

Re: “AFA football coach uses tweets to evangelize

It's hard to know how to respond to this latest affront the the Constitution, the 3rd in 48 hours, from the evidently 'converted' institution formerly known as the United States Air Force Academy, but now more properly the 'Holy Blood of the Lamb School of Sacred Airborne Imperialist Aggression' [a fully taxpayer funded parochial university of Christian fundamentalist dogma and applied military skills]. This most recent affront; evangelizing via a government-sponsored Twitter account by someone who cannot be anything less than intimately aware of the long history of Constitutional violations that have cropped up repeatedly, like a bad case of hemorrhoids, from within the very department in which he works and who occupies a position in the hierarchy in which he should not only be aware of AF directive 1-1 but who should be responsible to insuring it is carried out, cannot be anything less that a supervisor-approved, intentional act of sedition against the Constitution the former AFA is specifically empowered to defend and protect (if I understand correctly, as a civilian, he's not been required to swear such an oath). In his arrogant contempt for the regulations, he doesn't even bother to use a private, non-governmental Twitter account. That would spoil the intent, don't you see?

That as an employee of a government entity, utilizing a government-funded means of communication for proselytizing his personal religious beliefs conflates them to be official government policy in violation of the Constitution's 'Establishment Clause' is unarguable.

Those who colonized this country were fleeing state-mandated religious beliefs in order to freely practice what they believed (let's disregard the genocide & religious dictatorship they themselves practiced upon arrival). When our founders decided to write a constitution laying out the core beliefs of the new nation, they specifically understood that a monolithic state religion was anathema to democracy and led only to religious wars (of which Europe provided aplenty) and therefore specifically forbade it in the document we all now revere. But, those lessons, under the pressure of a few dogmatic and unrelenting fanatics, are destroying the secular democracy endowed to us by the founders and the framework for a new Christofascist theocracy is being laid.

Where's the outrage?

Re: “UPATE: Did dinosaurs and humans co-exist? Flier at USAFA says yes.

Stop it. Just don't publish such an absurd story and call it news. It's insane to think there was proselytizing going on here by leaving one religious publication in a waiting area that can be populated by anyone, further, if you don't like the message, then don't read it. Easy peasy. Hide it under the other magazines if you so desire, but don't cry wolf on something so ridiculous.
