I’m not the biggest Kevin Smith fan but he’s an extremely funny and honest speaker.
And Kevin Smith talking about it.
(Thanks to AEC for bringing this up in the comments which made me search YouTube for the clip)
It starts out a bit slow (they are slugs after all) but keep watching at least until they get on the sex swing of mucus.
This winter’s presumed megahit fantasy film The Golden Compass is an adaptation of the first book of Philip Pullman’s wildly popular His Dark Materials series, which has always sort of surprised us in its wide appeal. Like, we’ve wondered why people are always raising baloney complaints about witchcraft in Harry Potter when right under their noses is an intense children’s book series loosely based on Paradise Lost about a couple of kids â€” spoiler alert! â€” trying to, you know, kill God.
Now that the first book has been filmed, people are finally starting to notice. But is the new movie anti-Christian, or is it not anti-Christian enough? The Catholic League says it’s anti-Christian; they’ve announced a two-month campaign of protest against the film and Pullman’s work, calling it “atheism for kids.” “We are fighting a deceitful stealth campaign on the part of the filmâ€™s producers,” League president Bill Donohue said in a release, pointing out that the film will surely turn children toward the books.
Use M & M’s candy to help focus your family’s prayers of intercession for others.
Pass around a bag or bowl of M & M’s the next time your family is gathered for prayer. Let each person take a handful, but don’t let anyone eat the candies yet. Explain that the color of the candies will indicate the direction of the families’ prayers. Lead your family in prayer using this guide and stopping for prayer after explaining each color.
* For every green M & M you chose, pray for your spouse (present or future) or some other significant person in your life. This is a great way to get kids thinking about what qualities they want to find in a future mate. Encourage them to pray for this personâ€™s safety, spiritual and physical growth, and so on).
* For every red M & M you chose, pray for a member of your family by name (a parent, son, daughter, brother, sister, grandchild, niece, nephew, cousin, aunt, uncle, and so on).
* For every orange M & M you chose, pray for a teacher in your life (a co-worker, a professor, a pastor, a Bible study leader, a childâ€™s school teacher, a mentor, or another teacher).
* For every yellow M & M you chose, pray for one of your neighbors (a neighbor near your home, an office-mate, a person whose desk is near yours at school, or a neighbor close to your church).
* For every dark brown M & M you chose, pray for a leader in your life (a politician, a local businessperson, a celebrity, a member of your churchâ€™s staff, the President, or another leader).
* For every light brown M & M you chose, pray for Christians in other countries.
This might be best used as an after dinner prayer time. Repeat this process as often as you family’s calorie intake allows!
And afterwards we can have Nachos, Flanders-style? (that’s cucumbers with cottage cheese)
Anybody here speak LOLcatz?
