Is Sundance Really Something to Celebrate?

I have often asked the question through the years as to why liberals - when they must find something to defend - usually defend the indefensible. They almost always seem to land on the wrong side of the moral dilemma.

Well, get a load of this. Recently, actor Robert Redford made the news with his criticisms of the Bush Administration. His comments came while gearing up for this year's Sundance Film Festival. Fox News had a nice little piece on the other day where they made it pretty clear that your film wouldn't get much notice at Sundance unless it reflected a proper liberal point of view. So much for freedom of expression.

It was bad enough that we have to have the Dakota Fanning controversy about child sex and rape on film. Now, as you will see when you click the link below, now Sundance wants to celebrate bestiality. I kid you not. Now, before I get screamed at, yes..I know that not all liberals advocate such things. That being said, I wish I'd see those who do NOT advocate this kind of garbage be quite a bit louder in their censure. Think it'll happen?

The folks at Sundance ought to be ashamed of themselves for even giving this kind of tripe publicity. If this is what it means to be liberal minded, no thanks. I never did cotton to swimming in a cesspool.

I'll skip the link and take your word for it. I've seen the films that Sundance has advocated in the past and that is more than enough to convince me that bestiality would be on the applause list.

You may get stoned for putting the truth out there for Christians to see, but we can't deny the wrong that is being done in the world by hiding our heads in the sand or saying that we will take care of our family and our own little part of the world. It doesn't work that way.

We are called to be salt and light to a world that is dying to find something to believe in. Thank you for keeping us informed and calling on liberals to condemn wrong when they see it.

We should do no less as followers of Jesus Christ.

Thanks for the encouragement.

I noted with some disappointment yesterday that Jeanine Pirro, the Republican D.A. in New York, was on Hannity and Colmes giving an approving nod to the Fanning film. She says that the film isn't what it's being portrayed as and that the rape scene didn't show much of anything. She added that people need to look child abuse in the face.

Hannity quite rightly replied that they're missing the point. He wondered how much of the film's more offensive material ended up on the edit room floor before Pirro saw it, and that NO MATTER what the motivation, it still is wrong to have children in sexual situations on film.

That seems to be the factor that gets the camel's nose under the door. It won't be long before explicit scenes between adults and children will be there, but if the motivation is to show how awful it is, that makes it okay.

Ridiculous of course, but that's how the liberal mind works. Unless of course it's a charade with the real intent just to titillate audiences.
