Too big to fail is too wrong to tolerate.

  Ever wonder why it is that folks who make the most mind-numbingly moronic economic decisions on the most grand, globally impactful scale, tend to barely suffer any sort of meaningful personal consequence for their world shaking acts of stupidity?

God’s judgement? Don’t worry; be happy

Remember when a bunch of naked guys on bikes riding past a crowd of little girls was a bad thing?

Remember the good ol’ days when something like a parade of naked men on bikes riding by a bunch of little girls downtown in broad daylight, waving and smiling as they went along, would have resulted in either an arrest, a lynching, or some similarly appropriate beatdown?

There are a lot of great films out there that are family-friendly for Christians. This one, however, is a little too, um, hot. The new film, “The Song,” is based on Song of Solomon, and rated PG-13.
