It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

WARNING: Hollyweird perverts are trying to convince your kids zombies are cute and harmless.

From Mashable via Yahoo News comes the latest evidence of the malevolence of AmeriKKKa's entertainment/industrial complex.

Mashable has obtained a new web trailer for the upcoming 3D animated film ParaNorman, teasing new scenes for perhaps the most ambitious stop-motion movie ever created.

The film -- which comes from the creators behind the Academy Award-nominated Coraline and is made with puppets -- follows a young boy named Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is able to speak to the dead. When his small New England town comes under siege by zombies, Norman takes on ghosts and witches to save his town from a centuries-old curse. 

ParaNorman, also starring Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick and John Goodman, hits theaters on Friday, August 17.

Similar to Coraline, ParaNorman is a stop-motion film -- an art form that is unlike other animation in that everything that moves on the screen had to be physically be moved by someone, from the characters to details in scenes such as newspapers and vending machines.

"You start with a puppet with a little metal skeleton inside and if you pose it, it will hold its position," said Travis Knight, producer and lead animator of ParaNorman, in a FocusFeatures video. "You move it slightly, take a picture and then move it a little bit more and take another picture. When you knit enough of those individual pictures together and play them, it looks like the characters are brought to life."

But stop-motion film is hardly new -- in fact, it dates back to the early beginnings of film. A short called The Humpty Dumpty Circus from 1898 is often cited as the first cinematic stop-motion accomplishment. It is still done frame by frame, with 24 frames for each second and thousands tied together sequentially to create fluid movement.

The ParaNorman team has been active on social media sites by highlighting the high-tech work that went into the creation of the film, from production to the use of 3D printing. 

Focus Features released a series of videos that showed how the characters were created by hand and photographed for the film.

Meanwhile, a ParaNorman Twitter account (@ParaNorman has been tweeting updates as well as sneak-preview Instagram pictures from the movie. On its Facebook page, fans are encouraged to create their own stop-motion animation by using the ParaNorman ZombieLab tool.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
