Santorum named CEO of Christian film studio
Associated PressAssociated Press – 2 hrs 12 mins ago
DALLAS (AP) — Former U.S. Senator and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been named CEO of a company that makes movies meant for a Christian audience.
EchoLight Studios said Monday that Santorum will serve as head of the company. The company's first film is slated for release in the fall, and it has another movie in post-production.
The company says Santorum has spent the past year working with Dallas-based EchoLight.
Santorum says in a statement that Dallas can become the Hollywood of the faith-and-family movie market.
Uh oh, here comes the casting couch. Watch out all you young Dominican boys!
Wonder if any films will address the physical and emotional abuse, or the child sexual abuse and molestation, rampant in Dominion families. Have always read that the more religious and outwardly morally conservative the family, the greater the probability of abuse.
Domestic Discipline Porn!
Wonkette linked to an article on this. Hold on a minute. Don't spank me, Daddy.
Santorum is a Catholic. Isn't that about the same as the Anti-Christ in the Dominionists book?
"Santorum is a Catholic. Isn't that about the same as the Anti-Christ in the Dominionists book?"
As you can see in my link at r2, it's already caused problems (though they may try to explain it as mere "political differences") and it will no doubt cause more. Hoping for lots of drama.
R7, Did you read this from what you cited?
"According to Jim Alsdurf, a forensic psychologist who has written a book on abuse in Christian homes, CDD is "an outlet for emotionally disturbed men with intimacy deficits"; it draws in "a more pathological group of people" because it infantillizes women."
The first movie we have coming up is "Gidget Goes To Gomorrah", the story of a young surfer girl who finds herself in modern day Los Angeles, surrounded by filth, perversion and HOMOSEXUALITY. Can our young heroine retain her purity, chasteness and home-spun values while being in a gang of kids which includes YOUNG NUBILE SURFER BOYS who engage in HOMOSEXUAL ACTS? Gidget is played by a young actress by the name of Amanda Bynes. Myself - and the rest of EchoLight - have big plans for her!
R12, LOL. How do you think their movies will compare to the ones put out by LDS in Utah?
Will Hollywood take note? I see "moralistic implications" in The Wolf of Wall Street. All that sinning, and look at the consequences.
When Alex Wagner asked for suggestions for documentaries for him to produce, someone suggested one on Dan Savage.
R12, I don't think Dominionists surf. She would have to be a young, quilter, knitter, or Jane Austin reenactor.
Hmm, I wonder if you could put a Dominionist spin on "Pride, Prejudice, & Zombies."
Well they could re-enact Bible stories. Of course they'd have to really clean them up to get rid of the sexual implications.
Mr. Santorum, when's the soonest we'll be able to see EchoLight adult movies?
Damn, I thought this was a thread about the housing market.
"I don't think Dominionists surf. She would have to be a young, quilter, knitter, or Jane Austin reenactor. "
She could be the rebellious Dominionist daughter who disobeys her father and takes up surfing. Of course at the end of the film, she'd have to renounce the beach and all those immodest swimsuits, and return home to... well, sit around and do nothing, like a proper daughter.
What will Kirk's first role be?
James Tyrone in "Long Night's Journey into the Daylight of Christ's Glow"
Stanley Kowalski in "A Super Jet Named Jesus!"
George in "Who's Afraid of Jesus? Not me!"
Albin in "La Cage Aux Follies" as a drag queen who finds new life in Sondheim.
R21, Please explain your post. Don't tell me "Christians" are into money laundering.

To help capture the adult audience, we do have an upcoming film project where an unmarried different-sexed couple actually HOLD HANDS on a first date (also known as "getting to third base"). Some hot stuff, let me tell you!
Yeah, no Jews allowed! Probably Christian porn!
Well, don't stop there; Waco is just a little further.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
