Noah: Brilliant anti-God, tree-hugger propaganda

Noah: Brilliant anti-God, tree-hugger propaganda

My thoughts on “Noah” were divided. Overall, the film is a sinister piece of anti-religious filmmaking that is obviously meant to lead people away from God. Admitted atheist Aronofsky intentionally tries to fool people into believing God wiped out humanity for their wickedness and evil, but only as it pertains to how man treats the […]

Pope just said no to lifeline for troubled ‘Noah’, actor’s misleading tweet to the contrary

Easter Sunday, 2013: God sent his only begotten son so that Catholic students can hook up without judgment or joy

The Washington Post, in its Easter Sunday edition, raises a question at odds with its editorial policy: ”Time to stop hooking up? Why students are tired of casual sex’.
