In commemoration of the Armenian genocide, where about 1.5 million Armenians were killed to the Turks of Ataturk – a criminal act that was never admitted by the Turkish government, I invite you to watch (or watch again) the movie Ararat, directed by Atom Egoyan.
For the first time, learn how one man’s vision kept the early Christian movement together. How one man defied the very followers of Jesus himself… and in the end left his homeland to conquer an Empire. This is the compelling story of Paul the Apostle, originally named Saul of Tarsus. He zealously persecuted the early followers of Jesus and violently tried to destroy the newly forming Christian church. Paul’s dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus radically changed the course of his life. After his conversion, Paul began to preach that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. He is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age.

Pe data de 7 mai a fost lansat in Franta filmul ‘Au nom du fils’ [In numele fiului]. Tema, abuzurile sexuale ale preotilor, este una foarte actuala si se poate sa vedem filmul si in Romania.
Iata o scurta descriere a naratiunii (in limba franceza):
Éprouvée par la mort accidentelle de son mari, Élisabeth, animatrice d’une tribune téléphonique sur les ondes d’une radio chrétienne, reçoit en ondes un coup de fil de son fils de 13 ans. Celui-ci lui annonce qu’il est amoureux du père Achille, un ancien collègue à elle, qui vient de partir pour l’Italie. Élizabeth réagit si mal à la nouvelle que l’adolescent se suicide. Apprenant dans la foulée que le garçon et son défunt mari participaient à des camps d’extrême-droite religieuse, Élizabeth sent monter la colère en elle. Indignée par le silence de l’Église face à l’abus sexuel dont a été victime son fils, elle assassine l’évêque qui refuse le salut de l’âme de l’adolescent. Ayant dérobé la liste des prêtres pédophiles que l’évêque protégeait, Élisabeth part en croisade. (Sursa, AICI) Continue reading “Au nom du fils”
