Our friend Patrick at CrushKerry.com has asked us to spread the word about an organization and new website he is launching. Here’s his note, which explains his goals better than I could:
One symbolic battle in the war is about to take place. The Hollywood entertainment industry will soon decide which films, director and actors to honor at the Oscars. I fear — given the enormous hostility to the film and its director — that The Passion of The Christ will be passed over, probably in favor of Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 911.
Therefore, I have launched a new organization called Passion for Fairness to impose our middle-American values on Hollywood for a change, instead of the other way around. With this launch I’m happy to announce a new website: passionforfairness.com, which features a petition drive, news about the Oscar race, an opportunity for visitors to vote for The Passion to receive a People’s Choice Award and much more. The site has just now been launched, so expect many more innovations to come.
As you probably know from my columns on the subject, I am a very passionate supporter of “The Passion of the Christ,” and I wholeheartedly applaud Patrick’s efforts here. Please check out his site.
