The plot against Narnia
I knew the old hens at Concerned Women for America would have something to say about last night's Golden Globe winners. Beyond the usual moral condemnation, they offer a fairly revealing argument about who should get awards.
From the organization's website:
Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, CWA’s Senior Fellow of the Beverly LaHaye Institute, said, "Once again, the media elites are proving that their pet projects are more important than profit."
Crouse added that "none of the three movies, Capote, Transamerica or Brokeback Mountain, is a box office hit. Brokeback Mountain has barely topped $25 million in ticket sales. While it has recouped all the production costs, it is doubtful that receipts have covered the massive PR costs."
The Christian thing to do, apparently, is to reward the popular. CWA might want to check out this week's box office champion, "Hostel," in which "three backpackers head to a Slovakian city in search of hedonism, with no idea of the hell that awaits them."
"Blessed are the profitable, for they shall inherit the kingdom of God."
