Now here’s a movie that all should see

Well there are some in the XCG blogsphere making their diatribes against the movie New Moon (second movie in the Twighlight series), saying the tired old tirades such as “it promotes the occult” to “it sells a false chastity between relationships”.  For me, I look forward to seeing a 50 year movie career for Taylor Lautner and I think Ashley Michelle Greene is hot (and would love to give her a blessing from above) but that’s neither here nor there.  I am going to light a candle as opposed of cursing the darkness (whether real or imagined). I am going to talk about a movie that has given the movie New Moon a run for it’s money at the box office.  Former U.S. presidential canidate and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee on his radio show (The Huckabee Report)  liked this movie and praised it for it’s positive portrayal of American Southerners and religion in general.  The movie I am talking about is called The Blind Side which stars Sandra Bullock who plays a woman of influence who takes in a homeless, undereducated and traumatized boy who triumphs over his difficulties and ends up in playing football in the NFL. Yes, it is based on a true story on NFL football player Michael Oher’s life. If you really want to know what love in action is all about, how Christianity in it’s purest form is to be practiced, this movie is definately for you. This kind of love in action far supercedes any minute details of observance of a particular day or whether an innocent American pastime such as Thanksgiving Day is acceptable to God or not or anyother doctrinal pettiness that takes the focus on loving our neighbour. For those not familiar, here is the trailer if you haven’t seen it. Be inspired.
