There’s a new movie called Risen scheduled for release on February 19, 2016. It’s the story of the Resurrection viewed as a ‘manhunt’ through the eyes of a Roman Centurion named Clavius, who’s charged with finding the corpse of Jesus after the Resurrection to stifle the fervour of the first Christians.
Some are calling it the unofficial sequel to Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.
None of the 2016 hopefuls is polling higher than Darth Vader. You’ll recall that Vader chopped off his son’s arm and blew up an entire planet, but evidently in the eyes of the American public these are minor sins compared to Benghazi, Bridgegate and Gov. Rick Perry’s hipster glasses. These numbers suggest that if “Star Wars” were real and Darth Vader decided to enter the 2016 presidential race, he’d be the immediate front-runner.
Meanwhile President Obama is polling just two favorability points below Emperor Palpatine, Lord of the Sith. Make of that what you will (Source).
Jokes aside, this makes you realize how dysfunctional democracies have become.
