Michael...I am new to your site (a few months now) and I love it! Including the podcast. Listening to podcast #35, I found myself in complete agreement on your discussion on the penguins. I shake my head at how ignorant some of my brothers and sisters in Christ can sound. I just get to the point I don't want to hang around them because I get tired of hearing about everything they are against. Recently I read a movie review by a Christian columnist on "Talladega Nights" (as you referenced) and how we were supposed to boycott the movie because of how it makes fun of southern Christians. Uh boy. So this morning I saw a story in Agape Press about the speculation of possible Christian reaction to "The Nativity Story" star Keisha Castle-Hughes' out-of-wedlock pregnancy. I held my breath as I started reading the story, expecting evangelicals and Vatican officials to call for a boycott of the film. However, I was relieved to find out (in this article, anyway) that Christian leaders are calling for "compassion, not condemnation". They commended the 16 year-old actress for choosing life and pointed out that Christians don't turn their backs on unwed mothers (as the media and others like to accuse - again to your point in the podcast about being suspicious of how the mainstream media reports issues). In fact the article referenced an expectation that the mainstream media had the same cynical expectation I had, and being somewhat disappointed there's no outcry from evangelicals on this issue. Anyway, I thought I'd share this since it seems to be somewhat relevant to your podcast discussion regarding the penguins and the media reporting of Dr. Camp's statements. Here's the link to the entire article: Soli Deo gloria! Deering
