FedEx Asks That Washington NFL Team Be Renamed, Name Under Review

Washington Redskins v Pittsburgh Steelers

As the world continues to voice the plight of Black people we are reminded that justice needs to be served for all communities. One organization needs to act right.

For many years Native Americans have felt slighted by the National Football League. The name of the Washington R-dskins team uses a very disrespectful and derogatory term thus Native American groups have tried to their best to get them to be change it but have been unsuccessful. Now the franchise is facing a different pressure. As spotted on The New York Times FedEx is now joining the push.

In 1999 the shipping conglomerate signed a $ 205 million dollar deal to acquire title sponsorship rights  and naming rights to the stadium. On Thursday, July 2 FedEx served the team a notice requesting a prompt change. “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name,” they said in a formal statement.

Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington is also seeking a change. In an interview with The Team 980 he detailed why it is necessary. “I think it’s past time for the team to deal with what offends so many people,” she explained. “This is a great franchise with a great history that’s beloved in Washington, and it deserves a name that reflects the affection that we’ve built for the team.”

The Washington NFL team released a statement saying the name is undergoing a “thorough review.” Let’s hope they do the right thing and shed the colonizer vibes—it is long overdue.

Online Petition to Name Dr. Anthony Fauci People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Gains Momentum

Dr. Anthony Fauci has become a stalwart for Americans, providing guidance and information about the historic coronavirus pandemic — and now, the esteemed doctor is gaining a fair share of Internet fame.
The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has been increasingly in the spotlight since joining the White House’s COVID-19 Task Force in January, with many taking to social media to express their gratitude for Fauci’s insight into the virus and his work combatting its spread.
This admiration, however, has been taken a step further with a new change.org petition calling on People Magazine to name the doctor its Sexiest Man Alive 2020.
“His comforting and intelligent demeanor has helped to lessen our national anxiety,” reads the petition, which was created on March 28. “He speaks truth to power, a strength few have at this time. His kind face and manner of speaking bring calm during the storm. For sapiophiles and many others, he is the definitive Sexiest Man Alive in 2020.”

Burberry Partners With The RealReal in the Name of Circular Fashion

LONDON — Against of a backdrop of climate change protests and luxury companies ramping up their sustainability initiatives, Burberry has partnered with luxury consignment marketplace The RealReal in an effort to promote a circular economy in fashion.
According to Burberry, the partnership is a means of educating and directing consumers who wish to consign their Burberry items, or to shop for old Burberry pieces, on The RealReal’s site.
“We hope to not only champion a more circular future, but encourage consumers to consider all the options available to them when they’re looking to refresh their wardrobes,” said Pam Batty, vice president of corporate responsibility at Burberry.
Burberry won’t be providing any of its unsold stock, or giving the consignor any exclusive products. Instead, the company has chosen to reward TheRealReal customers who purchase consigned Burberry products more chances to shop the brand via an exclusive personal shopping experience in one of its 18 stores across the U.S.
According to the luxury label, the personal shopping experience will include Champagne and high tea and a personal selection of new Burberry products to shop from, including their latest collection of more than 109 looks.
Like many luxury brands, Burberry has moved to become more sustainable.

First Contact (In Her Name, Book 1)

Michael R. Hicks

Genre: Epic

Publish Date: May 31, 2010

Publisher: Michael R. Hicks

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.


In the first book of the In Her Name: The Last War trilogy, the Terran survey ship Aurora makes a startling discovery in an uncharted star system: two planets inhabited by an advanced, and decidedly unfriendly, non-human civilization. Disabled by gigantic alien warships before it can escape, the Aurora is boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs who slaughter the crew in ritual combat using primitive weapons. The sole survivor, Midshipman Ichiro Sato, is returned to Earth as a messenger bearing a device that warns of an impending attack. For that is the way of the Kreelan Empire, which has waged war against civilizations across the stars in its quest for a savior, one not of their own blood, foretold in an ages-old prophecy. With only a few generations left before their ancient species faces extinction, the Kreelans will wage their last war against humanity, hoping against hope for redemption of sins long past. If you’re new to the In Her Name series, here is the author’s recommended reading order: The Last War Trilogy — First Contact — Legend Of The Sword — Dead Soul The Redemption Trilogy — Empire — Confederation — Final Battle The First Empress Trilogy — From Chaos Born — Forged In Flame — Mistress Of The Ages

Starbucks In Philly Under Fire For Islamophobic Name Jab At Muslim Man, Lied About Apologizing

racism-Starbucks-US-POLITICS-RACISM-EDUCATION-STARBUCKS

Source: KENA BETANCUR / Getty

Once again, a Starbucks in Philadelphia is under fire for making another racist inference according to the claims of a patron who says staff in the store took a swipe at his name. Niquel Johnson, a 40-year-old Muslim man who goes by the name Aziz, says an employee at Starbucks wrote “ISIS” as his name and he adds that they also lied about speaking with his niece to issue an apology.

The Washington Post exclusively reports:

Niquel Johnson paid for three drinks in Philadelphia on Sunday, and in typical Starbucks fashion, an employee asked for his name. Johnson, 40, told them “Aziz,” his Islamic name pronounced ah-zeez. He has used it for 25 years — and “countless” times at that particular store.

But three unusual things happened on this occasion, he said. When his order was ready, a staffer announced them by drink type, not his name.

The second unusual part was the employee wrote his name as “ISIS” — the acronym for the Islamic terror group — in the printout attached to all three drinks.

Johnson didn’t even realize it until later, when a friend pointed it out at a bookstore.

“I was shocked and angry. I felt it was discrimination,” Johnson told The Washington Post on Friday.

The outlet writes that Starbucks claimed they spoke with Johnson’s niece and settled the matter. The kicker is that Johnson says whoever the company claims they spoke with, a woman named Alora, isn’t someone known to him in his life.

Johnson is considering legal action.

City Girls’ JT & Resha, The Other Women Name Dropped In Drake’s “In My Feelings”

Spotify's RapCaviar Live

Source: Jeff Hahne / Getty

Drake‘s smash hit “In My Feelings” is gearing up to be the song of the summer, with viral dance challenges and such making national news for the right and wrong reasons. While the mysterious “Keke” or “Kiki” has gotten much of the audio spotlight, the Miami rappers JT and Resha, the other women mentioned in the song, make up the musical duo City Girls.

The video for “In My Feelings” just made its debut this week and already sitting at 1 million views a day after its release. Filmed in New Orleans, the inventor of the dance that fueled the #InMyFeelings challenge, Shiggy, makes a cameo as does the infamous Resha, also known as Yung Miami, of City Girls along with a loving shout out to her partner, the currently incarcerated JT.

City Girls got their first big break as a guest act on the Quality Music Control 30-song compilation album, Control The Streets. The track “F*ck Dat N*gga,” which invokes the spirit of the raunchiest rap this side of 2 Live Crew, Trick Daddy, Khia, and Trina combined.

With an unapologetic sound that is no doubt immersed in the vibe of the 305, JT and Yung Miami were completely poised for stardom but JT entered into the prison system on June 29 for credit card fraud.

The City Girls Instagram page posted a video of a cartoon of Drake discovering the group and fawning over the ladies ahead of throwing them in his hook for the song. With Yung “Resha” Miami holding down the fort for her sister, the clip shows how fans can send letters of love and support to JT in prison and she promises to return all the love when she gets free.

Check out the clip below along with Drake’s “In My Feelings.”

Is it just us or does The Weeknd strike you as the type of singer who likes to wallow in sadness in his visuals?

In his somber clip to “Call Out My Name” the Canadian crooner continues that trend by walking down a lonely road after sunset like he just lost his best-friend. Not even an iPod though?

Yo Gotti meanwhile makes the most of the road and rolls in a all-white Lambo like it ain’t no thing in his Chris Brown assisted clip to “Save It For Me.”

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from IDK & Denzel Curry, Nino Bless, and more.

Publisher: David Archer

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


USA TODAY & AMAZON #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR  • ONE OF THE BEST NEW VOICES IN THE ACTION THRILLER GENRE • David Archer is back with a vengeance with his newest hero, Noah Wolf. After fans raved about his debut series, The Sam Prichard Novels, Archer now is about to back even harder. People are already throwing out names like Mitch Rapp and Alex Cross, but don't take my word for it. See what all the fuss is about before Archer becomes a household name! Wolf. After witnessing the murder-suicide of his parents as a child, Noah suffers from a form of PTSD that has left him without emotion, without a conscience and without the ability to function as a normal human being. With the help of childhood friends, he learns to watch others around him and mimic their behaviors, in order to conceal the fact that his mind operates more like a computer that he has spent years programming. That program is what allows Noah to pass himself off as normal, by establishing parameters of right and wrong that are completely inviolable to him. As a young adult, Noah finds structure in the U.S. Army, and becomes an excellent and exemplary soldier, but when his self-imposed programming is put to the test by the murderous acts of the superior officer, Noah finds himself quickly made expendable, charged with crimes he did not commit and facing the possibility of execution. Without any reasonable hope for a reprieve, Noah's logic-based mind accepts his fate. Sometimes, though, things are not all as they seem to be, and Noah is offered one chance to save himself. It was his disability, his lack of emotion, that made him the soldier he had become. Now, an ultrasecret organization known as E & E wanted Noah's talents, offering him a chance to survive… As the most deadly assassin the world has ever known.

In the first book of the In Her Name: The Last War trilogy, the Terran survey ship Aurora makes a startling discovery in an uncharted star system: two planets inhabited by an advanced, and decidedly unfriendly, non-human civilization. Disabled by gigantic alien warships before it can escape, the Aurora is boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs who slaughter the crew in ritual combat using primitive weapons. The sole survivor, Midshipman Ichiro Sato, is returned to Earth as a messenger bearing a device that warns of an impending attack. For that is the way of the Kreelan Empire, which has waged war against civilizations across the stars in its quest for a savior, one not of their own blood, foretold in an ages-old prophecy. With only a few generations left before their ancient species faces extinction, the Kreelans will wage their last war against humanity, hoping against hope for redemption of sins long past. If you’re new to the In Her Name series, here is the author’s recommended reading order: The Last War Trilogy — First Contact — Legend Of The Sword — Dead Soul The Redemption Trilogy — Empire — Confederation — Final Battle The First Empress Trilogy — From Chaos Born — Forged In Flame — Mistress Of The Ages

name out loud.

When she came to a young Pakistani boy and asked his name, he replied, “Ravashanka Vankatarataam Bannerjee.”

“How do you spell that?” asked the teacher.

“My mother helps me,” said the little boy.

Young Midshipman Ichiro Sato joined the Terran Navy to escape a tyrannical father and find freedom among the stars. He had no idea when he boarded the survey starship Aurora for his first assignment that he and his crew would make humanity’s first contact with a sentient alien species. In an uncharted star system where Aurora’s crew discovers two planets inhabited by a non-human civilization, Aurora is disabled by gigantic alien starships before she can escape. Boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs, the aliens learn all there is to know about the ship, including all its stored information about humanity, before the crew is slaughtered in a series of ritual combats. Ichiro, the sole survivor, is returned to Earth as a messenger to warn of the aliens’ coming invasion of human space. For that is the Way of the Kreelan Empire, an ancient and dying race that has waged war across the galaxy for a hundred thousand years, slaughtering every sentient species it has encountered in a desperate search for the One, a savior foretold in an ages-old prophecy who can rescue them from looming extinction. For the Kreelans, who will die out in a handful of generations, the conflict with humanity will be The Last War. With Earth leading a fragile coalition of military forces to mount a defense against what many believe is nothing more than a hoax, Ichiro again finds himself at the sharp end of the spear aboard a Terran destroyer. Together with journalist Stephanie Guillaume, Legionnaire Roland Mills, and the irrepressible General James Sparks, Ichiro and the other men and women of the coalition put their lives on the line against an enemy none of them could ever have imagined.

Sarah Palin Criticizes Ahmed Mohamed On Facebook, Can’t Even Spell His Name Right

It wouldn’t be a GOP opinion unless it goes totally against the grain of the popular thought, and Sarah Palin managed to insert her unsolicited two cents into the Ahmed Mohamed situation.

The former Governor of Alaska has been obsessed with President Obama’s every move since her failed campaign for vice president in 2008 and she used the recent controversy in Irving, TX for a direct jab at the White House.

She also tried to paint the 14-year-old teen as a privileged troublemaker who was immune to the same punishment other (white) students made, but were subjected to national attention. Palin, 51, also couldn’t be bothered with taking heed to the correct spelling of the boy’s name but her right-wing followers loved her all the same for it.

“Friends, consider the kids disciplined and/or kicked out of school for bringing squirt guns to school or taking bites out of a pop tart until it resembled (to some politically correct yahoo) a gun,” Palin wrote via Facebook. “Or the student out deer hunting with his dad early one morning who forgot he had a box of ammo in his truck when he parked in the school’s lot later that day. Kids humiliated and intimidated for innocent actions like those real examples are often marked the rest of their lives and made to feel really rotten. Whereas Ahmed Muhammad, an evidently obstinate-answering student bringing in a homemade “clock” that obviously could be seen by conscientious teachers as a dangerous wired-up bomb-looking contraption (teachers who are told “if you see something, say something!”) gets invited to the White House.”

Cops who arrested Ahmed were fully aware that the strange-looking clock wasn’t an explosive device but “humiliated and intimidated” him by hauling him off to juvenile detention regardless. Still, Palin thinks Obama acted impulsively by extending an invitation for him to visit the White House.

“By the way, President Obama’s practice of jumping in cases prematurely to interject himself as the cool savior, wanting so badly to attach himself to the issue-of-the-day, got old years ago,” she continued. “Remember him accusing police officers doing their job as “acting stupid”; claiming if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin; claiming he needed to know who was a fault in an industrial accident so he’d “know who’s a** to kick”; etc., etc. Those actions are about as presidential as his selfie stick.”

Palin ran a campaign based on catering to hockey moms and spending a great chunk of the time attempting to prove she was qualified, fundamentally and politically, for the job. Had she and John McCain been elected, it probably isn’t a shot in the dark to say her commentary on social issues would reflect her persona as a conservative white woman living in Alaska.

Sports News in Brief: Redskins Maintain They Were Legally Granted Right To Name By 1807 Treaty Of Blackwater Creek

WASHINGTON—Responding to widespread criticism from an increasing majority of Americans who find the team’s moniker offensive, Washington Redskins officials announced Wednesday that they were legally granted the right to use the name by the 1807 Treaty of Blackwater Creek. “What critics fail to understand is that the Redskins name was originally approved by Native American tribes in an effort to make peace with early settlers,” said franchise owner Daniel Snyder, explaining that the 19th-century Iroquois gave their blessing to use the Redskins logo in exchange for bolts of cloth, copper kettles, and various food supplies. “Our team’s identity is not only a source of pride for our players, coaches, and fans, but also symbolizes a promise we made over two centuries ago at Fort Elmsley. To abandon it now would simply dishonor all the distinguished Native American elders who came together at Blackwater Creek and helped forge …

Frank Ocean Changes His Name

Frank Ocean has legally changed his name.

When he was born, he was named Christopher Edwin Breaux – quite a snazzy moniker. Regardless, he’s permanently ditched it.

The singer was granted the change by a judge in Los Angeles on Thursday. The one-time Odd Future affiliate made the filing a year ago.

He had to work through some issues with his drivers license before the move was approved, according to TMZ.

Should You Change Your Name After Marriage? The Woman’s Surname Quandary

Is it necessary for me to have a last name? Why can’t I act like a rockstar too, and just be called by my first name — Nell?

I was born Nell Kathleen McCarthy. I hated my first name growing up. No one was named Nell, except cows and Nellie Olson from Little House on the Prairie.

It was hard to be cute in high school and college with an old-fashioned name like Nell. But after college, it worked on a blue-eyed wonder, with a soft smile and a mind full of romantic ideas.

I married him, eight months later. I was just 26.  

After much polling of other newly married friends, I nodded to tradition and changed my name, sort of. I decided to drop Kathleen, a middle name I loved, and replace it with McCarthy, and take his last name, Gibbon. I officially became Nell McCarthy Gibbon.

This logical and common choice never worked out well for me. People were always hyphenating it to Nell McCarthy-Gibbon. When it happened in the maternity ward, after my first son was born, I knew I needed to fix it… again.

So, one afternoon with a toddler in tow, I went back to the Social Security office and changed my name a second time. I thought, without question, for the last time. I picked Nell Kathleen Gibbon. I let go of my Irish surname and went from under my father’s wing to my husband’s out-stretched hand. I was building a new family, right?

But something gnawed at me, as I signed the paperwork while my son drew on himself with a pen stolen from my purse. I was pushing something I wanted down, deep inside, into that place where so many things women want get pushed and left to die. Writer Elizabeth Gilbert likens this to a New England cemetery in our souls.
  
The historical weight of the choice wasn’t lost on me. 

I had succumbed to a naming tradition called Coverture which dates back to medieval England, that effectively enslaved women for thousands of years. And I did so, despite all the feminist history I studied in college and graduate school (I knew that in several U.S. states up until the 1970s, married women weren’t allowed to open up their own bank accounts or apply for loans).   
Interestingly, a feme sole, a single woman, had legal rights in medieval England, but upon marriage, a woman became a feme covert. A feme covert had no rights to legal property as she was theoretically her husband’s property, “covered” by him; made invisible under the eyes of the law. So once a woman signed away her surname, she signed away her human rights as well.

Giving up my name felt akin to giving up a room of my own, something Virginia Woolf had taught me not to do. But my sense of tradition and my need to please turned on Virginia Woolf that day. I walked out as Nell Kathleen Gibbon.

And I lived that way, under my husband’s family name, until a year ago. After 12 years of marriage, and two more children, my husband and I separated and filed for divorce. 

I was shocked when my lawyer, very early on in the divorce process asked, “What do you want your last name to be?” Of all the things I was dealing with in the divorce, my last name was the last thing on the list. “Keep it Gibbon,” I replied. “I’ll figure it out later.”
 
Later came on the day of my divorce. I retained the name Gibbon and laughed for the first time in a long time when the judge told me I wasn’t allowed to marry again for 90 days. “Who would do such a thing?” I asked. “You’d be surprised,” the judge replied. 

Little did I know, just weeks later, at a candlelit restaurant that smelled like Christmas, a distinguished and handsome man would introduce himself to me: “I’m Drew Hall.” I was knocked off balance and instantly thought, ‘Could I possibly, no never, fall in love again?’

Fast forward a year. I’m happily engaged and even more confused about ‘the problem’ that has become my last name. With no immediate plans to marry, do I simply stay a Gibbon? I will admit, I’ve doodled the name Nell Hall on scraps of paper like a 16 year old girl, but can a woman change her name to her fiancé’s name without being married? What would be the social ramifications? And what if we don’t work out in the end?  

I’ve contemplated changing my name back to McCarthy, but to return to my maiden name would be a return to my childhood which feels like going backwards. I’m not doing that. I am moving forward in my new life now.

I’ve also contemplated choosing a last name as if I was picking out a new dress from the racks at Bloomingdales. I’ve joked at dinner parties, “I think I’ll just call myself Nell Smith.”

Inevitably, at those dinner parties someone will ask, “Don’t you want to have the same last name as your children?” That question always takes my breath away. Would it devalue me as their mother? 

In divorce, a woman has to give up so many things she never would have imagined. She has to give up, at least part of the time, the most unimaginable thing of all for a mother — her children.  So what’s giving up a name, on top of all that pain? If I clung to every part of my children in this divorce, I wouldn’t thrive. No, I wouldn’t survive. Divorce, for women, is about learning the art of letting go and the skill of reinvention.  

Madonna, Pink, McLovin and… me. The jury is still out on this girl — Nell.

Jennifer Lopez’s Name Is Jennifer Lopez Again

Jennifer Lopez has changed her name back to Jennifer Lopez, according to TMZ.

Although Lopez and former husband Marc Anthony separated in July of 2011, their divorce wasn’t finalized until June 2014. Now, the singer and actress has officially changed her name from Muniz — Anthony’s official last name — back to Lopez.

Lopez opened up about the pain of her divorce in a conversation with Arianna Huffington on HuffPost Live in November:

Everything from the outside seemed perfect. But the truth was … my marriage was falling apart. … I was terrified that that realization was occurring to me, like, ‘This is not working. I’m not happy. This is not good. What do I do? I have these two small children.’ It was so tormenting and anybody who’s gone through it knows that. And then going through it in the public eye just adds that little bit of extra ouch.

The 45-year-old discussed her divorce, as well as abuse she’s experienced in relationships, in her memoir True Love, which was released in November.

“The only way you can be mistreated is by allowing yourself to be mistreated, and that was something I did over and over again,” Lopez wrote. “I’ve never gotten a black eye or a busted lip, but I’ve been in relationships where I have felt abused one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally.”

What’s In a Name?

In every culture, the naming of something or someone is a powerful act. It is an act of responsibility to both the namer and the one being named. Personal histories have been made and re-made with a name change. Many religious and cultural celebrations like weddings and christenings involve the giving and taking of a name. Most parents take great care in selecting names for their children.

When our first son came home, he was 3½ months and had already been named by his birth mom. I’ll admit we were not in love with the name and had the ability to legally change it. However, to honor her place in his history and that time of his life, we kept the name as his first name. We added two second names and gave him my husband’s family name. In total, he has four names on legal documents. Not exactly bubble form friendly, but it celebrates his unique adoption story in a memorable way.

With our second adoption, long before we began to be matched with birth moms, we selected names for either a girl or boy. For a boy’s name, we choose Jacob. It was my paternal grandfather’s name and so we let my parents know to gauge their reaction. My usually stoic father, a retired pastor, was visibly moved that we’d honor a man he never got to know as he died when my father was only six months old. We also chose Sophia for a girl’s name, the name of one of my grandmothers. By choosing these names, we hoped we’d connect our adoptive family to our biological family’s history.

When we were matched with our birth mom and learned she was expecting a boy, we let go of Sophia, the girl’s name we had chosen. Although we were very careful not to refer to him by Jacob because of all the things that could still go wrong, I’ll admit we began to think of the unborn boy as our son.

After a very tough couple of weeks with our birth mom, quagmired in the unavoidable bureaucracy of adoption and being snowed under the brutal winter of 2013-’14, she emailed me with a simple request: Could she name the baby she carried for nine months? As I read the email to my husband, we both knew that we could not refuse her. With all she was prepared to give to us, we could not deny her the honor of naming him. He gently reached for my shoulder and asked, “Are you okay with letting the name go?”

I lied and said, “Yes.” I emailed her immediately and explained how we named our first son and the meaning of his four names. I wrote that we’d be honored if she’d name him and asked her what name she had in mind. Quite honestly, I read and re-read the email a dozen times. I didn’t want her to sense my disappointment or sense of loss. I hit the send button and said goodbye to Jacob and went downstairs to get a glass of water and grieve a little. Yes, it was a selfish and petty grief.

While I was sipping my water, an alert notified me of a new email. I saw it was from her and with a deep breath I opened it. She had written a lengthy email, explaining her choice of name, but in all honesty I scanned past it all and my eyes settled on the simple combination of consonants and vowels that would become my son’s name. When I arrived at it, my heart burst.

She asked if we could name him Jacob. Despite living over a thousand miles away, coming from a different cultural and ethnic background and being in a completely different stage in her life, she choose the exact name we had chosen. Yes, I know it is a common name; in fact, the year before he was born, it was the most common name for baby boys. But still, I found it cosmically uncanny. When I told him, my usually stolid husband was visibly moved. We knew that it was a sign that he was meant to be part of our family. Our birth mom said it best when I told her we had chosen the same name. “Well then, it was meant to be,” she said peacefully.

Biological parents have that moment when they see their baby’s ultrasound or feel their baby kick in the womb. That moment, I felt my son’s heartbeat for the first time even though he wouldn’t be born for another six weeks. Despite the lessons our adoption journey had taught us, I gave myself the gift of hope and secretly I began to refer to him as Jacob.

We would have many more twists and turns ahead of us before Jacob would come home with us, but I carry that moment with me every day since. It has become interwoven into the myth-truth of my son’s homecoming. Its significance would only be rivaled by the moment when my father baptized my son with my grandfather’s name. And the usually unemotional men in my life were visibly moved by the power of a simple name tying four generations of my family. For those of us who rely on science, logic and hard facts to understand our world, moments like these are truly humbling.

Wherever you are in your voyage, whether your child grows under your heart or in it, know this: What’s meant to be will find a way of happening in its own time. You may not even know when it’s happening but that which is named cannot be unnamed.

“Persecuted” Gives Faith Based Films a Bad Name

Movie Review Jackie K Cooper
“Persecuted” (One Media)

This year there have been quite a number of faith based movies released. Some have been high profile like “Heaven Is For Real” and others have been low on the radar like “Alone Yet Not Alone.” Still most of them have shared a quality of talent that makes them acceptable to the movie going community. That is as it should be. Just because a movie is “faith based” does not mean it is automatically worth seeing. A “faith based” film should have to earn its audience just like every other kind of movie.

Take a movie like “Persecuted.” This just released movie has been hyped as a “faith based” film. Boasting a cast that includes Fred Dalton Thompson and Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson, this is a movie that should play successfully with those on the right of the political spectrum and with Christians in particular. Let’s hope not, since “Persecuted” is a perfectly awful movie.

The story concerns a charismatic minister named John Luther (James Remar). At the height of his success he is framed for a murder he did not commit. This is done because he did not support a one size fits all freedom of religion bill that is being sponsored by Senator Donald Harrison (Bruce Davison).

Luther goes on the run and tries to find someone to help him disprove this accusation. One of the first people he turns to is his father Charles (Thompson), who is also a pastor (or priest?). Together they make plans to cleanse John’s reputation. But while they are doing this, Harrison and his minions are searching high and low for John.

Flaw number one: While John is driving around the Washington, DC area no one can seemingly locate him. This is happening even though his picture is all over television and the newspapers. There is such a thing as hiding in plain sight but the freedom he has to travel around without being spotted is ridiculous.

Flaw number two: John Luther is supposed to be a man of enormous charisma and personality. He has created and run a huge worldwide ministry. As played by Remar he is a sulking, low key individual who couldn’t influence his dog. Remar has had roles where he had some spunk and spirit but none of that is on display in this movie.

Flaw number three: Nothing in the movie makes any sense. As the story enters its final phase it gets even more bizarre. You walk out wondering if half of the plot was just tossed during the filming.

All of those flaws are fatal and all of them destroy any entertainment value the movie might have had. The acting is atrocious. Remar is not the only one sleepwalking his way through his/her part. Thompson is wooden and Carlson is all glowing Barbie doll. So much for her big screen movie debut. And out of nowhere comes Dean Stockwell, a talented and well thought of actor who has not been on screen lately. Why did he want to return in a lame vehicle like this one!

The movie is rated PG-13 for violence.

Movies like “Persecuted” give faith based films a bad name. They mention God and Jesus in the dialogue and think that will be enough to draw a crowd. Here’s hoping it isn’t.

I scored “Persecuted” a sinful 2 out of 10.
