The Art of Redemption Episode 020.5: Ideological Feminism, Part 2 of Cider House Rules, Horton Hears a Who, and Bill Nye the Science Guy

Please note: This may be a sensitive topic for some as it has to do with abortion.

This weeks episode is a continuation of last week’s episode, joining in at the middle of this conversation. Please See Episode 020.4.

As we look at entertainment and the arts, we continue the series on Ideological Feminism taking a closer look at Second-wave feminism and the effects it has on our culture, even today. Looking into the issues that come out of feminist thinking, we see many struggles and difficult things brought into our world that we live in. Again, when you abandon God and morality, you end up with a subjective and existential idea of how to go about life.

In Scintillating Cinema this week, we take a look at the 1999 film, Cider House Rules, Tobey Maguire, Charlize Theron, and Michael Caine. This week we talk about the law a bit and how the rules are really a list of things that “don’t apply” to the living in the house because they are old and outdated. We take this through and apply it to culture today in regards to the ideas about the Bible and the Ten Commandments.

We look into another Scintillating Cinema piece, but by Dr. Seuss titled Horton Hears a Who. We look into the idea that a person is a person no matter how small. This idea is the premise for the entire book and movie that came out in 2008.

As we listen to the audio from a video posted by Bill Nye the Science Guy, we talk about his lack of consistent and logical flow to his presuppositions about abortion and women’s rights. You can see the video in its entirety here.
