Annotations & Elucidations Hope For Hollywood?
Almost all the news today is national in scope, and much of that is about culture. It appears now that the same-sex marriage drive in the Northeast has stalled. Starting with Maine's decisive ballot victory November 3 (another conservative victory that historic night almost unnoticed by the media), now the legislatures in New York and New Jersey have ground to a crawl their moves to put the issue to a vote. In the nation's capital, however, the city council there most certainly will approve a same-sex marriage measure. But a reluctant hero is emerging in Catholic Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl, who is telling the D.C. government that if you force this immorality on my faith, you can forget about Catholic Charities' help. The liberal hysteria is amazing.
In another battle in the culture war, Virginian Lisa Miller has been ordered, incredibly, by a Vermont judge, to cede full custody of her daughter to her former lesbian lover. Meanwhile, Pastor Rick Warren asks liberals if they think abortion is so bad it should be "rare," why not ban it?
In other news, the global warming hoax scandal is shedding still more light on the motives and evil mentality of its perpetrators (celebrating a man's death, for example) and we see a school without God. Yesterday, we posted a link to an article about Angelina Jolie calling President Obama a "socialist." Today, we find one about Sandra Bullock's "blessing to meet a Christian," (the woman she portrays in her hit movie Blind Side). Who knows? Maybe there's hope for Hollywood yet.
