Christian Movie ‘Last Ounce of Courage’ Will Premiere This Friday

Who knew it took courage to be in the majority?

A new film called Last Ounce of Courage opens this Friday. It’s focuses on a character named Bob Revere, a Christian pharmacist who’s tired of the way those damn liberals at the ACLU are trying to take away all aspects of faith from the public square. Because, you know, who needs church/state separation?

Then I think some kids get involved and they save Jesus and Santa or something.

Just watch the trailer and you’ll see what I mean:

I suppose we can all appreciate the fact that none of us will ever see this film until it comes to Netflix… at which point we’ll invite all of our friends to come together and screen it alongside Troll 2 and The Room.

I can’t wait for the debates over which movie is better: This one or Christmas with a Capital C.

    Thomas Jefferson was about the worst example you could have given, i.e. founding fathers using Christianity as the foundation for our government. Just saying.

    You’re expecting our friend up there to recognize reality.

    I encourage you not to hold your breath.

    Just saying what? No doubt trying to perpetuate the lie that Jefferson was an agnostic, i.e. an atheist. Of course, those who don’t accept the Judeo-Christian rules that govern morality have no problem lying, so I guess no surprises in your comment. (Quote as just ONE example that Jefferson was not quite what you would desperately hope him to be…) “”And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.” –Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 18, 1781

    Go back to school CG ….and you too, half-smart “Baby Raptor” Oh, and with regard to your obvious need to address your ignorance, (quote) “”If a nation expects to be ignorant — and free — in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” –Thomas Jefferson

    Thank you for suggesting I read my sources again. It helped clear up the idea that Jefferson is the one whom would be the worst example of Christianity as the basis for American government. That honor belongs to John Adams, a Christian, who was president for the Treaty of Tripoli, which states unequivocally that the U.S.A. was not founded on Christianity.

    You do bring up a great quote for disproving your own supposition, thank you. Jefferson was neither an atheist, nor an agnostic. He was also not Christian. You assume that he was speaking of Jehovah (the deified version of Jesus). Notice however the complete lack of “Christ”, “Jesus” or “Our/The Lord”. He is saying nothing in regards to which theistic philosophy he follows. Most historians believe that he was a deist. Deists believe in an impersonal God who is more a creative force and less a dictator of law. If you wish to see his view on Christianity for yourself, please read the “Jefferson Bible”, his personally edited version of the book in which all of the divine properties are removed from Jesus and instead his philosophy is focused on.

    Thank you for your well-constructed comment against which I have little to say other than the fact that, yes, while Jefferson appears to have been a deist, when one reads his written thoughts, it becomes apparent that much – even all? – of his philosophy closely aligns with Christian principles. Forgive me for being slightly cynical, but it is rather too cute to be embracing or at the very least agreeing with fundamental Christian philosophy and yet at the same denying that it is Christianity. Furthermore, and digging deeper, I personally have concluded – to the scorn, if not anger of some who profess to be Christians – that Jesus was not necessarily as ‘original’ and many may believe. He certainly was ‘original’ in the sense that, I suspect, He collected and cherry-picked wisdoms from a wide range of sources and collated them into a ‘package’ that could be both easily taught and understood. Whether he was ‘divinely inspired’ is, for highly intelligent people, irrelevant and even at a highly intelligent level it can be sensibly argued that he was. Nevertheless, all of the above aside, I’d put money on it that Jefferson was raised in a ‘Christian’ family and that, although in adult life he may – as I and many have done – have somewhat intellectually ‘drifted’ from the ‘blind’ embracing of th Christian philosophy, and not have any longer embraced the obviously contradictory or questionable and sometimes irrational aspects (e.g. “turn the other cheek” versus “throwing the money-lenders out by the scruff of their necks”) of Christian teachings (often via interpretations and translations that may have obfuscated the original message), he (Jefferson) nevertheless still had ’embedded’ (brainwashed) in him those fundamental Christian principles from his childhood teachings (as have all – such as myself – who were similarly *properly educated* [ vis-a-vis *ignorance* – see below] ). As a result, Jefferson may not have projected as being a ‘typical’ Christian, but “God-fearing” he certainly was. Definitely, in those days, and even today, the term “God-fearing” implies at least a deep respect for and practising of Christian principles, if not a complete embracing of that system. All of that aside, there is absolutely no doubt that the USA was founded on Christian principles and there is absolutely no doubt that the original “American Way” was an outstanding step forward – across the entire span of human history – in the creation of a social-management system that ensured personal freedom, safety and opportunity for progress towards ever greater well-being for its citizens. That is, until the 1960’s, when the ‘counter-culturists’ began ab-using that personal freedom and started aggressively making progress at..well…countering (destroying) that Christian-based culture. Why any persons, such as atheists, would want to destroy a social-management system that, flaws and all, *proved* itself to be superior to anything else ever attempted by humans is beyond my understanding, But then, for all its squillions of words and colourful metaphors, even The Bible has no explanation for why some humans – i.e. atheists – would choose evil over good, or.. ….uh….”God”. Which brings me back to my original assertion: *ignorance* is very likely the answer. I will soon, via video, be explaining – in simple terms, so that even ignorant atheists can understand – the fundamentals of ‘religion’ and the critically important and indeed totally natural application of those fundamentals to the human condition. However, to receive notification of that video being published, a person needs to be subscribed to OzUnited (Go Google). p.s. “Baby Raptor” how am I doing insofar as ‘recognising reality’? Or is that perchance a great big log in your own eye? (If you and others don’t know what the question means, that would be a neat demonstration of your…well…*ignorance*) Dunno ’bout you folks, but for me this debate is over and the case is now closed. There’s no way one can impart 45 years of accumulated knowledge, experience and analysing/conclusions via a ‘backwards-and-forwards’ interaction on some or other blog/website. Be willing to learn or remain … well … ignorant.
