Gabriel Range,is the 32-year-old British director of "Death of a President". It is a new movie about America that has our President, George Bush being assassinated! In the movie there are Muslims who have been falsely arrested and at some point the President is killed. This is an outrageous misuse of the arts. We all know how powerfully movies affect people. All of us have come out of a movie with a desire to be the characters of a movie at one time or another. There is also a special class of people that are troubled and have difficulty separating fact from fiction. They at times seek to take action on what they saw, in a copy cat form. This movie, believe it or not, was reviewed at the Toronto film festival and has found a distributor to carry it in our country. I hope there will be outrage from all sides of the political arena.

How could someone agree to show such a despicable film is beyond me. Like him or not, the President is in a job that is of the utmost importance and carries more pressure than any of us will ever know. To make and distribute such a disturbing image of a sitting President being murdered, shatters all decency barriers. Not to mention that this President has family that has to endure this tragic film. Just when you think you have seen it all, we reach a new low. The best thing we can do is take the occasion of this unfortunate film and use it as a reminder to pray for our President and his family. While you are at it pray for those who would be of such a depraved mind that they would see this as a good idea!
