Here's today's Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
At the Sundance Film Festival, Americas government ensured that the show would go on. According to the American Family Association, two U.S. agencies helped to sponsor the eventand, until this week, they had managed to get away without publicizing it. Reports show that the National Endowment for the Arts and Public Broadcasting gave as much as $350,000 of your tax money to an event that featured graphic films on bestiality and child rape. The 2007 festival highlighted the documentary Zoo about sexual relationships between a man and his horse. The truth is, independent films should have independent support. You and I shouldnt have to pay for Hollywoods pet projects. Our money should be spent keeping Americas families safenot exposing them to radical ideas that harm society. They may be partnering with filmmakers, but when it comes to understanding right from wrong, its apparent our government doesnt get the big picture.
