GO SEE THIS MOVIE: FOR GREATER GLORY

When I saw the first commercials for this film I groaned:  Not again!  Another pro-leftist propaganda piece from Hollywood!  Who’s the hero, Pancho Villa or something?

But you CAN teach an old (well, middle-aged) blogger a few new tricks:  I learned something new and you should too!  There was a Cristiada revolution to restore religious liberty in Mexico.  Yes, Mexico.

Apparently Mexico tried to outlaw the Catholic Church in the 1920s.  Here’s the time line from the movie website.  But people resisted and it turned into a revolution.  The rebels had some success but needed professional leadership.  Enter retired General Enrique Gorostieta who is reluctant to help but eventually is recruited to lead the army – soon 50,000 strong.  Eventually peace is negotiated and religious freedom is restored. (Although total freedom was not restored until 1992 with a new constitution for Mexico.

Here’s the trailer.  I found it very moving.  Go see For Greater Glory!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
