This is no different than a good Christian-based movie that goes viral... there is a huge audience and Hollywood as a whole is too insular to realize it and tap into it.

Apparently, the powers that be at the History Channel have short memories. Last night I was doing a little channel surfing and came upon a promo on the History Channel for an upcoming program about religious cults in America. Along with photos of David Koresh, Rev. Moon, etc., they flashed a photo of the Rev. Billy Graham.

That's right, when you're talking about cults in America, you can't leave out those crazy Baptists, at least as far as the History Channel is concerned.   :thud:

Oh I think they are well aware of the profit potential.

However the subject matter is so distressing to them, that even profit will be forsaken to avoid it...

Kind of like the commercial for the Ku Klux Klan program that constantly shows David Duke but never Robert Byrd...

Movies do have an effect. Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters was on with Megyn Kelly this morning and said the moment he understood how important it was for us to protect and defend Israel was when he saw Paul Newman in Exodus back in 1960.
