Why "God is Not Dead" Should Be.

The movie “God is Not Dead” is about a stereotypical do-nothing-wrong, goodie-two-shoes Christian student who is forced by an equally stereotypical cold-hearted and mean-spirited atheist to admit that “God is Dead” in a philosophy class. I’ve watched this movie twice — once because I had nothing better to do (Netflix is a wonderful time waster) and once more to actually make sure the morals and meanings of the story were what they presented themselves to be throughout my first experience.

A Year After Charlie Hebdo

On January 7th, 2015, a mass shooting of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, carried out by two Islamist gunmen who identified themselves as radical Al-Qaeda members from Yemen. These two men, brothers by the names of Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, along with a third gunman and close friend by the name of Amedy Coulibaly, were responsible for the largest terror attack in France since the June 1961 Vitry-Le-François train bombing which killed twenty-eight and injured 100+. The saddening fact is the Charlie Hebdo shootings weren’t going to be the most deadly attack on French soil in 2015.
