This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

This is a call to arms to all the haters of Christianity, constitution (freedom of religion). Your reign of tyranny is over. You want your freedom that my loved ones have died for? Don't take ours. This is a direct message to my government.

Religion, along with the use of the Bible, has been strongly misunderstood when applied to public schools. The Supreme Court has ruled that teaching about religion and using the Bible in the classroom may both exist in any curriculum if they are not a part of religious worship, but are integrated as a part of the offerings within a secular program.

The Supreme Court clearly affirmed this position in Stone vs. Graham, when it stated that "the Bible may constitutionally be used in an appropriate study of history, civilization, ethics, comparative religion, or the like
BOOYAH!

Beautiful, moving film, yet simple and unpretentious. If you are an atheist who don’t believe in family values, the US Constitution (where nowhere is to be found the “wall of separation between Church and State”), I highly suggest you skip it and watch something like Bowling for Columbine! The movie opens with Reagan’s beautiful 1961 speech (see “Videos”) and ends with his moving 1964 “Rendezvous with Destiny” speech. The main character leads a fight for the freedom to worship. He even states that his fight is about freedom, not religion. There are facts that cannot be denied. John Adams started the tradition of Christmas in the White House and Jefferson threw elaborate parties where Christian music was played. In 1870 President Ulysses S. Grant turned Christmas (i.e., the birth of Jesus Christ) into a nationwide religious holiday. So, on the 25th of December (Christmas Day) all government entities are closed for one reason only: the birth of Jesus. That is what this movie is about: restoring our liberties and the traditions started by the Founding Fathers. The movie opens with a beautiful speech by Ronald Reagan and ends with a moving address by the city mayor, Bob Revere (Marshall Teague). Fred Williamson played a great “The Reverend” Jackson look-alike. Mostly unknown actors (with the exception of Jennifer O’Neil) and an incredible young actress Jenna Boyd (“Missing”). Worth watching from beginning to end. (NOTICE: Attempts to censor this comment will be fiercely fought under the aegis of ALA’s beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.)

This was an excellent video exposing the loss of our freedoms. Our family enjoyed watching it and we have encouraged others to see it as well.

President Lyndon B. Johnson (12/22/63): We were taught by Him whose birth we commemorate that after death there is life. In these last 200 years we have guided the building of our Nation and our society by those principles and precepts brought to earth nearly 2,000 years ago on that first Christmas.

President Bill Clinton (12/21/99): Saint Matthew’s Gospel tells us that on the first Christmas 2,000 years ago, a bright star shone vividly in the eastern sky, heralding the birth of Jesus and the beginning of His hallowed mission as teacher, healer, servant, and savior.
