'Obama's America 2016' Movie Producer: People Need to Get Educated

Film producer Gerald R. Molen, best known for his Academy Award-winning Best Picture "Schindler's List," was so impressed with the premise for a movie aimed at showing how President Obama's past life has influenced his political worldview that he did something for the first time in his 55-year career: He produced a documentary.

"This has been kind of a new experience for me, but filmmaking is filmmaking," Molen told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview on Monday.
"Obama's America 2016," which is currently a limited release, examines the question: "If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?"
This film is based on two books authored by conservative activist Dinesh D'Souza. One book, The Roots of Obama's Rage (2010), looks at the president's past and the other, Obama's America (released later this month), is about a "look into the future," D'Souza said. Whether the film will be a game-changer in this year's presidential election remains to be seen. However, many of those who have viewed the documentary-style movie are deeply moved, D'Souza told CP recently.
Molen considers himself a fiscal hawk conservative and knew about D'Souza before meeting with him to discuss the making of the movie. He highly respects D'Souza's intellect and fortitude as an immigrant becoming successful in America.
The film shows D'Souza "immersed in exotic locales across four continents" as he "races against time to find answers to Obama's past and reveal where America will be in 2016."

Ohio Church Starts Professional Wrestling Organization

While many congregations across the country organize events like Vacation Bible School and bingo nights, one church in Ohio has decided to start a professional wrestling organization.

First United Methodist Church of Martins Ferry has launched Rugged Cross Championship Wrestling (RCCW), with its first event, titled "First Genesis," being held Sunday evening at a church facility.
According to the RCCW Facebook group, the new wrestling organization is affiliated with Black Diamond Wrestling, All Things New Ministry, and Call The Eternal. The goal is to provide family-friendly professional wrestling entertainment.
"Our goal is to bring the excitement of Professional Wrestling set in a faith-based environment that is family friendly and that promotes the old school wrestling philosophy mixed with the story of the eternal battle between good guys and bad guys," reads RCCW's "About" section on its Facebook page.
"2 Sundays a month Rugged Cross Championship Wrestling will bring the excitement of Professional Wrestling that is faith based. RCCW will feature the wrestling Stars of Black Diamond Wrestling as well as new up and coming future wrestling stars."
Co-creator of RCCW Tony Wensyel explained to local television media the purpose behind launching such an endeavor.

Missouri to vote on prayer amendment

ST. LOUIS — Missourians will vote on Tuesday (Aug. 7) on a proposed amendment to the state constitution that supporters say would protect residents’ right to pray in public, and if a recent poll is any indication, it could pass by a mammoth margin.
Supporters say the so-called “right to pray” ballot measure — known as Amendment 2 — better defines Missourians’ First Amendment rights and will help to protect the state’s Christians, about 80 percent of the population, who they say are under siege in the public square.
Opponents, meanwhile, say that the religious protections Amendment 2 would offer are already guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution, and that it will open the door to all manner of unintended and costly consequences including endless taxpayer-funded lawsuits.
State Rep. Chris Kelly, a Democrat who opposed the original legislation, called Amendment 2 “a jobs bill for lawyers.”
The measure has already provoked lawsuits over its ballot wording, which plaintiffs argue is a Trojan horse attack on the state’s 200-year-old protections for religious minorities, public education and church-state separation. Those lawsuits failed in Missouri’s courts, and the measure’s ballot wording will stand as written.
A poll by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of 625 registered Missouri voters found that if the primary had been held last week, 82 percent would have voted in favor of Amendment 2, while just 14 percent would have voted “no,” with 4 percent undecided.
