• The Big ‘C’

    Forget about your Great Whites … Cancer is by far the most successful predator of the human species.

     

     

  • Anno Domini

    In the glory days of the over-produced Hollywood Biblical epic you could always rely on certain staples. You were going to spend at least three hours in a darkened movie theater, the music would be soaring, there would be a cast numbered in the thousands and stilted acting by American stars who somehow could not pull off togas and robes the way European actors could.

  • Who’s finding whom

    CNN is still trying to “find” Jesus, so far with mixed results. The multi-part series, “Finding Jesus,” which began several weeks ago with an investigation of the Shroud of Turin’s veracity or lack thereof, has recently delved into the life of John the Baptist, the “Gospel of Judas” and the alleged existence of Jesus’ extended family of brothers and sisters.

  • NBC brings stories of the early Christian Church to network television

    If history is any indication, millions of Americans will be tuning into the premiere of a new television series depicting the early Christian Church this Easter.

  • Shrouded in mystery

    CNN’s “Finding Jesus,” which debuted on March 1, claims it will discover new and fascinating insights into the historical Jesus using the latest scientific technology. So what better way to start off a series with such a lofty objective than to dedicate its first hour to the Shroud of Turin.

  • Get a life

    In his ode to celebrity worship, Ray Davies wrote, “Everybody’s in movies, everybody’s a star, everybody’s in showbiz. … It doesn’t matter who you are.” What a harbinger of things to come! Now, through the distorted lens of reality television shows, people with no discernible talents are constantly anointed with undeserving fame.

  • Truth and consequences

    Try telling the truth ... it's easier to remember.

  • Time to lawyer up

    In the interest of journalistic integrity, I must self-report that the following article is biased. The new show “Better Call Saul,” the prequel to AMC’s seminal series “Breaking Bad,” has now been loosed on the public. Being a self-proclaimed “addict” of “Breaking Bad,” I went into the first two episodes of “Better Call Saul” predisposed to not just like the show but to be entranced by it.

  • Getting back to nature

    I’m not sure what is worse, the fact that there are more than 25 shows on television that have Alaska as their principle back drop, or the fact that I have seen portions of just about every one of them. I am either an astute observer of demographic and ratings trends in the television industry, or somebody who needs to find a hobby. 

  • Gatekeeping

    According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, “watching three to four hours of non-educational TV per day, children will have seen about 8,000 murders on TV by the time they finish elementary school.”

Creation and the future of marriage

Obergefell v. Hodges is one more sign that we have entered into a “post-Christian,” even perhaps an “anti-Christian,” moment in American public life.
