FOCUS ON THE FAMILY DODGES SPEARS
Focus on the Family is dealing with angry Christians over the hiring of a gay actor for End of the Spear role. And The New York Times reports it.

“Has Focus on the Family made a strong statement against homosexuality? Absolutely,” [Bob Waliszewski] said. “But what is the message of the product? And do we at Focus feel compelled to check on the sexual history of everyone in a movie? Did they have a D.U.I.? Did they pay their taxes?”

APPARENTLY, CHRISTIANS ARE SOUL-KILLING SEX-HATERS
A sharp summation of the heart of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, and its distortion of Christianity. Thanks.
