Just when I thought the Academy had come back to Earth and started picking movies for their quality rather than for some obscure reason that I don't think the public at large has understood in recent years, they completely pass by the most successful, most artfully portrayed, most powerful film of the year! I thumb my nose at the academy. I will certainly have something better to do on Oscar night.
I gotta say, I couldn't agree more. We Christians in America have it pretty cushy, when you really look at it. Yet, we waste so much time complaining about how "persecuted" we are. You want to look at real persecution? Check out either of the books below. They are just full of stories (some very recent) of people who put their Earthly lives on the line to follow their God. So few of us here in the USA have any concept of what it is to live in a place where you can be tortured and killed simply for being a Jesus Freak. Next time you feel the need to complain about how hard it is here, think about the men and women in this book, shut your yap, and be grateful that God has placed you in a country where you can worship Him without fear of real persecution.
