Perhaps the Cold War isn't over, it's just halftime. If indeed we end up trading stern looks and spy photos with the Ruskies again, it appears that we'll have Indiana Jones to blame. MSNBC is reporting that the opposition Communist Party in Russia is protesting the new Indy film as anti-communist propaganda, decrying the movie as "low quality" and warning that it "would raise a smile if there wasn't a danger of drawing into its orbit teenagers who know nothing about the 1950s." Party member Andrei Gindos called stars Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett the "running dogs of the CIA" and suggested that they be barred from setting foot on Russian soil. You know, Harrison Ford did star in Air Force One as well, with Gary Oldman as a disgruntled commie terrorist, so I'm glad they're speaking out. I haven't seen the film yet, but now when I do I won't be duped into thinking that evil communists really did spend the 50s battling college professors for ancient crystal skulls with magic powers. That's almost as scary as the fact that Hitler almost got his hands on the Ark of the Covenant, which apparently was really God's holy A-bomb. Thanks for the heads-up, guys.
I'm a follower of Christ, an heir of the Reformation, and a Baptist - in that order. My wife Heather and I have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of a little girl. I work as an Aviation Technical Publications editor. From 2005 to 2009 I served as Minister to Youth at Hazelwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and I'm now actively pursuing church planting.
Soli Deo Gloria!
