Not since the struggle between Queen Mary of Scotts And Queen Elizabeth of England has there been such a monumental war to determine the direction of a civilization.
Queen Mary was of the very oppressive Catholic persuasion of that era. She believed the concept of literally preventing the citizens from reading the Bible and seeking a direct relationship with our creator. Queen Elizabeth was a Protestant believer who at least partially understood that people had rights that were beyond the absolute rule of the monarchy. Much has been written in recent years to try to dismiss the fact that our great republic was founded upon the biblical principles of Judeo-Christian values.
But all the revisionism can not and will not change the self evident truths. One should examine the original writings, personal correspondence, biographies, and public statements of the individuals who were instrumental in the Founding of the United States. If you do, you will find an abundance of quotations showing the extent to which their thinking and their lives were influenced by a Christian worldview. The vast majority of the Founders were Christians.
But even those who were not Christians were deeply influenced by the astounding principles of Christianity. We can get so stupidly distracted, wondering whether Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Jefferson ever put their personal faith in Jesus Christ. In doing so, we miss the extremely important fact that almost every single Founding Father thought and governed from a biblical perspective, whether or not they directly embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

The movie flashes back to show Wahlberg's conflicted and grudging relationship with his son's homosexuality and how he grows, even as it becomes too late. J Blakeson wrote and directed the film.
Edgar Hoover hoped to discredit him and break his spirit. One of the things so excellent about the film is that Bogie is surrounded by fantastic performances, particularly that of Rod Steiger as a vicious, greedy promoter, Mike Lane as the big dumb lug Steiger uses to accomplish his goals, and Max Baer as an egomaniacal champion.
And it doesn't spare us Bogart's haggard looks, either. However, his energy is great and his characterization of a writer turned press rep, a man who looks the other way, is a powerful one. There's a story often told about Bogart in his last days. Friends would come over to visit in the afternoon, and Bogart would climb into a dumbwaiter in order to get down to the first floor.
He was that small 80 pounds and that weak. But there was never anything weak about the mind, the will, or the persona. Looking for some great streaming picks?
