When I was a little girl, in the early sixties, my mom used to sit me in a corner with a pair of scissors and a stack of magazines. I remember this image because I thought it was so beautiful, with all the deep greeny blues. I especially admired the confidence on the woman's face and how she was looking off into the horizon as if she had a head full of well-defined plans and five years in which to accomplish them. I thought the only flaw in the photograph was the man simpering at her breast. So I took my scissors and snipped him out. Voila! Problem solved!
I love men, but I was right. This guy doesn't belong in this picture.

Paula Abdul - heterosexual ambassadress
Gary McCullough, the director of ChristianNewsWire, posted an opinion piece on the upcoming demise of the television show American Idol. He blames it all on Ellen DeGeneres who will be replacing Paula Abdul as judge. McCullough claims DeGeneres is , "...more known for her same-sex sexual preference than any expertise in the music business." On the other hand, when you think of Paula Abdul your first thoughts are of wholesomeness and family values?
He goes on to imply that adding DeGeneres as a judge "...is one more step in making sexuality the prime topic when discussing American Idol."
Just because the word "sex" is part of the word "homosexual," the same as it is with "heterosexual," doesn't mean that homosexuality is all about sex, any more than heterosexuality is all about sex. Ellen DeGeneres is a lovely person in a stable, loving relationship. To imagine her sexually as McCullough suggests will happen, takes a lascivious mind, straying from its own professed inclinations.
Christians, let's bring discussions of faith back above the waist. Take your noses out from under other people's bedding and get a breath of fresh air.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.Why are y'all watching a show called American IDOL anyway?

Don't you just love the accent?
Now in Ireland, insult a Christian, pay a fine of 25,000 Euros. While many legal authorities claim the new Irish law is written so narrowly that it is unlikely anyone will ever be prosecuted, please remember that, based on charges of blasphemy, Monty Python's Life of Brian was banned in the Republic of Ireland for eight years.
The new law is meant to protect fragile religious ideas from the big bad wolves of free thought and free speech.

We have figured a way to enhance the tradition of decorating a tree for Jesus at Christmas by adding a cross that acts as a reminder of Him. By changing our tree to include a cross, we are making a statement that we want to keep our Christmas holiday! Our new tree and decorations ideas will not only help to enhance our celebration of the Christmas holiday but will help to enlighten those who may decorate for Christmas but may not be "Christians."Merry Xmas, Everyone!

There's a new movie for all you eco-friendly, diversity-addled, liberal, intellectual elites out there. It's called Hive Mind, created by Ladd Ehlinger, Jr., who previously worked as a "military multimedia artist." Let's let the auteur describe the concept behind the film.
When our own President is constantly saying 'we must all think collectively,' naturally as a filmmaker I thought: scifi-horror film! Eco-friendly nudist Borg-like zombies! Cross-bred with Paris Hilton and Tila Tequila! Because really, who wouldn't?Dang, he's on to Obama. Right, it's because all democrats and liberals think alike that all of Obama's ideas for change are sliding through Congress like shit through a goose. A naked goose! RRrrrooww!
A ChristianNewsWire review encapsulates the plot.
Zombies created by a cell phone that you swallow, that merges with your brain. Dubbed the "I-Mind," the phone lets you Twitter telepathically, download movies straight to your brain, and keep your contacts forever. Britney, J-Lo, Pamela and Paris all love their I-Minds. But there's a sinister side-effect: loss of free will to the collective Hive consciousness. Everyone is either assimilated or killed in Hive's eco-friendly efforts to reduce the population.Oh, where is the hope? Who will save us from this silly plot?
Ehlinger describes his hero.
The lone hold-out is Doug Trench, conservative talk-show host and stevedore of freedom. He's lived in a bunker for twenty years, ever since humanity was consumed by the collective."Stevedore of freedom"? I had to look that up. A stevedore is "a person whose job is moving goods on and off ships", basically a longshoreman. I don't get it. I guess I'll have to rent the movie, because Ehlinger is bypassing the traditional distribution to theaters to put this important film directly into the hands of his fans. In other words, straight to DVD.
