    For a long time I have lamented the loss of what could be termed “wholesome adult entertainment”. It may sound corny but by this, I mean entertainment which is not directed at children but does not demean Christianity. It is possible, as has been done in the past, to create movies, stage plays, and other works of entertainment which did not necessarily proselytizer but which presented positive lessons and treated the Christian religion as a normal part of life. While not a perfect example, I was watching the Steve McQueen “Bullit” the other night. At one point he catches up with his commanding officer on a Sunday and the man is going to church with his family. There is no comment one way or the other. It is simply shown as a normal thing to do on a Sunday morning.

    I would like to see an effort to single out films, plays, books, and other works of art that present a “traditional” view of the world. Every piece of performing art does not need to be a Passion Play but they can show strong fathers, protective mothers, solid families, young adults making good choices, soldiers making sacrifices for their fellow men and all the other things that are a model for lifting the human spirit. What a welcome change this would be as opposed to the things we normally have offered to us in the name of “entertainment”
