In the movie industry, conservatives haven't played much of a role-until now. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. It may have taken a few years, but moviemakers are finally taking their cues from the grassroots. Of 282 film released in 2014, MovieGuide found that films with "conservative content" made more than triple their liberal counterparts. At $71.49 million, right-wing scripts overpowered their socialist, atheist, and feminist competition. And, as Dr. Ted Baehr points out, the themes with more of a conservative flair also happened to have stronger faith and family themes. "Pro-family films with strong morals and good values have a deep resonance with the American public," Dr. Baehr explained. There's a message for the entertainment industry. Lean right, one headline said, and rake in more. In the meantime, if you're tired of the politically correct junk Hollywood cranks out, prove it by supporting the alternatives. Fill the seats, and you might help fill the void -- for values! For more, go to TonyPerkins.com.
