Dear Mr. Farah,
I read with pleasure your review of the film “For Greater Glory.” I read your columns from time to time, and I have to admit I don’t always agree with the things you write about. Yet, I find it amusing that the little-known episode in Mexico’s history involving the religious persecution and eventual uprising became the focus of your attention.
As a Mexican immigrant, I think it’s refreshing that you can find something inspiring from an event that happened in Mexico long ago. Most articles written by conservatives dealing with ... continue reading »
Having attempted to listen at length to Mr. Neal Boortz on many occasions, I am vindicated in my lack of remorse at the announcement of his impending retirement ["Boortz announces retirement from daily talk radio"].

I would love to see you push the movie “For Greater Glory.” I feel like it is being used of God to win many people to Him.
I am 70 years old, but my 45-year-old son liked it equally well. I think it is one of those phenomenal Christian movies that comes maybe every 50 years and actually changes lives. We saw it this past Saturday, and the theater was packed. Plus, people applauded at the end and actually sat in their seats until the end of the credits (they were very stunned, I am sure).
I am not Catholic (I am Baptist) and most of the movie is ... continue reading »
