Re: “Frisky

Heart-warming, hysterically funny and honest. Definitely worth a watch for the 20-somethings.

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.

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: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs reaches settlement in racial profiling case

Olinyks comment about Blacks that " crime sometimes seems the only way to survive" I feel needs to be addressed. An ignorant comment and a racist view or a view by someone who has had little to do with learning history. As it is said about history and not learning from it that one will repeat it. The lowest common denominators in society force us all to their level all too often.
What some do not understand is that of the many groups or cultures living here there are some that are targeted. From harassment to murder, those the United States government wishes to control are blamed for outrageous acts against "proper society" As Olinyk demonstrated in his Blacks=crime comment, government's tactics work quite well on those who do not think it through or see a pattern of behavior. Government simply studies these groups and observes what they do. When the appropriate activity is found it is criminalized. The War on Drugs began this way. Cocaine use by Blacks was demonized in the media and laws then were passed. Shortly thereafter police were shooting "crazed" Black men in the back and it was justified, thanks to a racist law. Plains Indians were forbidden to perform their private ritual known as the sun dance. And Opium being outlawed was to target Chinese immigrants. Marijuana targeted Mexicans in the 1930s. All the way to the 1960s when hippie liberal Democrats saw the criminalization of LSD and were constant targets. Humans using drugs goes back to the beginning of time and it is a boon for a government that wishes to control or eliminate certain groups. History shows that this is absolutely the case and not the way they would like you to believe.
The recent rewriting of The Civil War history is a glaring example of government propaganda and control. Suddenly the noble and valiant Northerners are the heroes who fought to free slaves. Wrong and absurd as well. Free the slaves into what? "You are free, go along now" "Go where?" "I don't know, you're free, now go, you cannot stay here because you are free. Get it?" Young white men in blue uniforms sacrificing their lives for Black slaves?? No way. The Civil War was about money, tax and trade. Ask yourself; if it was about slavery then why did it take 100 years before The Civil Rights Act was signed into law. No big rush was there?
Actual crime is generally committed by sociopaths regardless of their ancestry, social or financial standing. Using and/or selling drugs was not a crime at all until 100 years ago. Barrack Obama used drugs so was that his blackness showing? No.
Olinyks has shown nothing has changed and as wordy as he is he still cannot grasp what "profiling" means or maybe he does. He will probably tell us. I can't wait. He will help us lose Rights and live in fear of police, he will take us back to the stone age.

Re: “Trump to skip Air Force Academy graduation

I did not vote for Trump. However, in all fairness, Trump is not skipping the AFA. Instead he is speaking at one of the other FOUR institutions that presidents rotate through. Pres Obama spoke at the AFA last year, and the normal rotation would put the president at the Naval Academy this year. This is a list of Obama's graduation speeches each year: https://www.google.com/amp/www.nj.com/articles/18376199/here_are_the_other_graduations_president_obama_has.amp

However, due to a scheduling conflict with an overseas trip, Trump is speaking at the coast guard graduation this year instead of the Naval Academy. This is one of the FOUR places in the rotation, not three as your article states. https://www.google.com/amp/www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/04/19/trump-to-keynote-us-coast-guard-academy-graduates-on-may-17.amp.html


See also this April 13th article (before Trump's Coast Guard speech was finalized) that details the four year rotation and the scheduling conflict: http://www.theday.com/article/20170413/NWS09/170419674

I don't care for Mr Trump at all. But your article is unfair. It leaves the reader with the impression he is snubbing the AFA. That is simply not true. He was not due to speak here this year, and he is in fact speaking at one of the four institutions where presidents speak each year.

Your point about speaking at a religious institution graduation is indeed worthy of examination, but it's unfair to frame your article as though he is speaking at Liberty instead of the AFA.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs reaches settlement in racial profiling case

Olinyk! How dare you presume my levels of respect or disrespect. I asked you to guess why you may think I was profiled and a traffic stop occurred, more than once I will add. Police cannot stop someone without reason, and one does not not have to provide ID either. They asked for ID from the passenger in that car, and they had no cause. They also had firearms drawn, so should I assume it was a felony stop?
My response was not "kneejerk" and was actually a short version of what I almost posted yesterday. I will point out that your first comment was pure racist and bigoted hogwash, and one might guess you are a white supremacist just by what you stated. Would CSPD really like you defending their practices? Your answer will be quite interesting, and CSPD's would be even more so.
While you may specialize in claptrap, and the Indy is always trying to make a rose stink, I am a supporter of The Bill of Rights. There is but one race: Human. We have Rights granted by our creator and guaranteed by The Constitution. Spin it any way you wish, but your view will not stand up under the scrutiny of even the dimmest light of day. To those who are not as blond haired and blue eyed as you are, you owe an apology.
As for manners: I have them, but they will not be exercised or exhibited for the likes of you.
