A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

End of the Spear: I just got back from watching "End of the Spear" in the theater. It's an excellent, moving film. Frankly, I'm even more befuddled now, after having seen the movie, than I was before at the complaints of some reviewers that the film is prosletyzing, preachy and in-your-face religious. Frankly, I can't imagine making a movie about missionaries that has less preachiness to it. It was almost like Howard Dean's old Christmas Day blog post -- Jesus' name wasn't mentioned once -- not once in the whole movie. Prayer was mentioned once or twice. In other words, you've got to be one of those intolerant loony-left types who are all for free speech as long as they approve of the content.

This movie is well worth seeing, whether your'e a Christian or not -- it's far better than most of the dreck out in theaters nowadays. It tells an interesting story very well. The only mildly annoying thing, as was pointed out by Michael Medved, was that the soundtrack does get in the way at times -- it's overpowering when it should be in the background. But this is a minor quibble. Check it out.
