I was interviewed last week for a new documentary, The Voice of John, which is going to be released on November 4, 2012. This documentary is a great new addition to the arsenal of films that help educate the public about the truth of abortion and the value of all human life.
The producer, Donald Galade, worked diligently to complete the trailer and is working just as hard to promote the film. Unlike most major film productions which have the financial resources to advertise their films, independent film makers rely on limited advertising and word of mouth.
Kudos to Director Christopher Peiser. His camera work and editing really captures the viewers’ interest and draws them in.

My good friend C. L. Bryant’s new movie, RUNAWAY SLAVE, is finally being released on July 27, 2012 in selected theatres.
Here is what they say on their website about the movie:
As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in the summer of 1963, he delivered one of the most powerful speeches in our nation’s history. Known for its famous line, “I have a dream,” Dr. King concluded his speech with these words:
“And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last, free at last! Thank God Almighty, we’re free at last!’”
Now, nearly a half-century later, has his dream become reality? Have we allowed freedom to truly ring? Or has that longed-for freedom somehow become even more elusive?
In RUNAWAY SLAVE, an intriguing new documentary that opens in theaters this summer, Rev. C.L. Bryant journeys across America to find answers. A one-time NAACP local chapter president, Rev. Bryant discovers that by buying into the entitlement mindset of “progressives,” the black community has traded one form of tyranny for another.
Using leading black conservatives as “conductors,” Rev. Bryant believes it is time for a new Underground Railroad to help liberate all Americans from the Government plantation that has left the black community dealing with a new form of slavery: entitlements.
“Why are we still thinking we are not free at last? What ideas are keeping us down?” Rev. Bryant asks. “For too long, we have been depending on other people for our success. We have to pursue our happiness; our happiness is not provided to us. If we are relying on someone else for our wellbeing, that in itself is a form of slavery.”
From our nation’s capital and freedom’s birthplace, to the dens of slavery and Jim Crow, to wherever a light for liberty is shining, this runaway slave looks to bring hope to the oppressed. Among the leaders he talks with along the way are Dr. King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King; former presidential candidate Herman Cain; Congressman Allen West; economist and author Dr. Thomas Sowell; talk-show host and author Glenn Beck; the late Andrew Breitbart. We also meet a new generation of young freedom fighters who are on the front lines of change!
Rev. Bryant’s conclusion? It’s time to run. “Run away from economic slavery. Run toward the blessings of liberty. Let us remain strong in this fight. Run away from socialism; run away from progressivism. And if you get tired, America … run harder!”
This summer, celebrate your freedom by running as fast and as hard as you can to see RUNAWAY SLAVE in theaters.
Here is a wonderful intervew of C. L. Bryant. Enjoy!
Atlanta, GA – African American Leaders are again outraged that Planned Parenthood “will stop at nothing to debase Black Women. Their latest strategy is to infiltrate ESSENCE Magazine, a publication aimed at the African American female market,” say contributing authors to the new book LIFE AT ALL COSTS.
Rev. Walter Hoye, Christian minister and civil rights activist added the following: “Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States of America, has been caught on video tape targeting Black women for abortions, falsely claiming they provide mammograms for women and helping a Black pimp manage his underage sex ring. Do any of the above activities even remotely demonstrate a legitimate concern for Black America? In my opinion, Planned Parenthood is using the 2012 Essence Music Festival to portray themselves as an organization that cares about Black women. This satanic stronghold and sadistic sanctuary is the only strategy Planned Parenthood has left to retreat to in order to maintain their illegitimate air of credibility in the public square. As long as Black Americans are willing to sacrifice our children on the altar of legalized and tax-payer funded abortion on demand in Planned Parenthood clinics we lose.”
Day Gardner and Alveda King, co-producers of the reality news show THE VISION agree with Rev. Hoye. “Rev. Hoye is correct, and brave in the bargain. It takes courage to bring the truth to the light. In a recent expose of Planned Parenthood’s tactics, it was discovered that PPH is in league with members of the United States Congress. That of course is no secret, since PPH receives over $1 million dollars a day in American tax dollars to advance their so called Women’s Health Agenda, an agenda that is linked to distributing goods and services that are linked to abortion, abortion drugs and other agents that are linked to breast cancer, strokes, heart attacks and Black genocide.”
I recently attending a screening of “For Greater Glory” in Spain and it was stirring, thought provoking, and pivotal. Bringing the reality of how man’s humanity to man crumbles in the wake of faith, hope and love. Highly recommended.
A historical and relevant voice in the 21st century battle for religious freedom. You must see it when it comes out. It is incredible.
What price would you pay for freedom? In the exhilarating action epic FOR GREATER GLORY an impassioned group of men and women each make the decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their country, as the film’s adventure unfolds against the long-hidden, true story of the 1920s Cristero War the daring people¹s revolt that rocked 20th Century North America.
Academy Award® nominee Andy Garcia headlines an acclaimed cast as General Gorostieta, the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (Golden Globe nominee Eva Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance’s most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen . . . and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with. The General faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government. Yet is those he meets on the journey youthful idealists, feisty renegades and, most of all, one remarkable teenager named Jose who reveal to him how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost.
Director Dean Wright brings a visual power honed from years as a leading Hollywood effects guru on such blockbusters as TITANIC, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and CHRONICLES OF NARNIA to this real-life tale that has never been told on screen before. The film is written by Michael Love. The producer is Pablo Jose Barroso. Garcia and Longoria lead a stellar multinational cast that includes the legendary Peter O¹Toole, rapidly rising star Oscar Isaac (DRIVE), recording star and actor Ruben Blades (SAFE HOUSE), Bruce Greenwood (STAR TREK, SUPER 8), Nestor Carbonell (THE DARK NIGHT RISES), Bruce McGill (LINCOLN), Santiago Cabrera (³Heroes,² CHE), Oscar®-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno (MARIA FULL OF GRACE) and Eduardo Verástegui (BELLA).
Shooting on historic locations throughout Mexico, the equally accomplished behind the scenes team includes director of photography Eduardo Martinez Solares (BAD HABITS), Oscar®-nominated editor Richard Francis-Bruce (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, SEVEN, HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER¹S STONE), production designer Salvador Parra (VOLVER) and Oscar®-winning composer James Horner (AVATAR, TITANIC, BRAVEHEART).
I told you about ‘Doonby’ back in February when I blogged a review of the movie. Since then I’ve watched an advance screening of the movie and I can say that this movie is target at a larger audience htan just the pro-lifers. Peter Mackenzie, director, recently emailed me to report that ‘Doonby’ had just won The Frank Capra Award in LA’s Life Fest Awards. As he puts it, “Of course, this isn’t the Oscars but a Capra Award sounds pretty cool to me and we are all delighted. Congratulations Peter!
And by the way, I know THE AVENGERS isn’t a prolife movie, but it sure is big fun. Captain America gives much glory to God in the movie. I’ve always been a Hulk sympathizer fan. All of the “heroes” are kool, though. The entire film is entertaining from beginning to end, and nothing family offensive in the mix.
