The Golden (Idol) Awards

Over at WorldMagBlog I found this:

Brokeback Mountain, the short-story-turned-movie about a romance between gay cowboys, netted four Golden Globes and a fresh round of criticism from Christian activists this week. The critically-acclaimed film earned the Golden Globe for "Best Picture" in the drama category, despite grossing only $32,810,000 at the box office since its December 9 release date. By comparison, The Chronicles of Narnia--released the same day--has earned $264,587,877. "If America isn’t watching these films," asked Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America, "why are they winning the awards?”
The Puritan Thomas Manton has the answer:

"First we practice sin,
then defend it,
then boast of it."
