At The Federalist, Eric Van Gorden writes on recent movies that “Subtly Destroy Kids’ Understanding Of Family And Reality.”
Lest we jump the cliff too soon: Movies can be what families make of them. Some families may watch material with potentially objectionable content or storylines for the purpose of using them as educational tools for their children. Others may not, others may not even stop to think about what they (and their children) are watching — while still others may simply not care.
But near the end of his article Van Gorden does make a very good point about the recent and controversial live-action version of Beauty and the Beast:
Disney has written only a handful of new elements into the movie to make it more progressive. There is no actual homosexual activity or conversation (this would still be too offensive to most parents).
However, there is a specific objective to normalize homosexual activity so that, one day very soon, the God-ordained family structure will be so undermined they will be able to promote openly this LGBT agenda to our children.
In other words, homosexuality was inserted just enough to be noticeable without Read more

US Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Kevin “Mose” Weiss was killed December 2nd when the two-seat AH-64 Apache helicopter he was flying crashed a few miles from Fort Campbell, Kentucky. He is survived by his wife, Beth, and two young children, Lucas and Susie.
Beth wrote this letter about her fallen husband:

God is my ultimate Provider, Jehovah-jireh is His name; one of the many ways He has provided for me was by giving me Kevin Mose Weiss.
At approximately the age of 12, I met Kevin Mose at AWANA Club. The mission of AWANA is to help “churches and parents worldwide raise children and youth to know, love, and serve God.” Kevin’s nickname at our AWANA Club was, “Monkey Boy”. A couple of my friends Read more
Within hours of three Americans thwarting a train-based terror attack in Europe, a few people quietly noted the three friends had been classmates at California’s Freedom Christian School. While the three themselves have not been particularly vocal about their faith, a few articles have now been published that attribute their courage and motivation to their Christianity:
On August 21st, Airman First Class Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guard member Alek Skarlatos and college student Anthony Sadler were en route from Brussels to Paris on a high-speed train…
El Khazzani…was overwhelmed by the three young Americans and a Briton, 62-year-old businessman Chris Norman.

A US Air Force F-16 fighter pilot is making the transition from the fields of combat to the mission field.
US Air Force Major Lance “Nuke” Ferguson has been a fighter pilot for nearly 11 years. He has flown combat missions in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and he wears the patch of the prestigious Air Force Weapons School — an honor and opportunity awarded to only a few fighter pilots each year, as well as a passport to future advancement. In every respect, Nuke is a highly-trained, experienced, and respected Air Force leader and fighter pilot.
Now this highly-skilled fighter pilot is doing what few could in the face of such God-granted success: He’s giving it up: Read more
Actor Vince Vaughn recently visited Edwards Air Force Base, California, to show an advanced screening of “Unfinished Business.” The visit was coordinated through the USO, with which Vaughn became associated after Pat Tillman’s death in Afghanistan:
The death of the pro-football-player-turned-soldier really affected him, he said, and he immediately called the USO to see if he could bring his then-new comedy, “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” to the troops.
The call led to his first USO tour, in June 2004. The following year, he traveled the world screening “Wedding Crashers” for servicemembers.
In an offhand comment, Vaughn “laughed as he told airmen” that he was surprised to find many deployed troops had already Read more
