Project X is a movie about a teenager’s friends who hold a
massive party in his house while the parents are
away. The partygoers, including both high school and college students,
end up getting drunk, getting high on ecstasy, completely wrecking the
home, and almost burning down the neighborhood!
According to KHOU in Houston on March 12, police said 13 Houston
teenagers were taken into custody for the wild party and vandalism. Two
of the teenagers were young enough to be returned to their parents. The
teenagers reportedly caused about $100,000 in damage. The night after
the teenagers were arrested, police returned to the neighborhood and
found a group of teenagers throwing another massive party.
This isn’t the first time Project X has inspired copycat
revelers in Houston. In fact, an unidentified teenager was shot multiple
times at an illegal party in another vacant home, ABC News reported.
That party drew between 500 and 1,000 high school and college students.
Police shut down the party, but reportedly the gunman escaped.
Foreclosures in the five-year Pelosi/Obama/Reid economic downturn are
part of the problem, news sources say. They lead to all the vacant
homes available to squatters and young partygoers.
Despite a recent 13 percent drop in foreclosures in January 2012
compared to last year, experts think that trend will be reversed in
coming months. That’s partly because a recent $25 billion mortgage
settlement will allow bankers to clear a huge backlog of disputed
foreclosures. In fact, Houston already has seen a 10 percent increase in
foreclosure notices in February, according to KHOU.
As countless scientific studies have shown, children and teenagers often copy what they see in movies and television.
Creators, actors and distributors have a responsibility, therefore,
to control what they promote in their movies, videos and television
programs. Of course, parents also have a responsibility to control what
movies, videos, and programs their children watch.
Project X is an abhorrent movie. It shows the huge
devastation that America’s abandonment of Christian, biblical faith and
values and consequent descent into depravity, apathy, hedonism and
brutality have wrought.
As the apostle Paul writes in Galatians 5:22, self-control is one of
the main cardinal virtues that faith in God through Jesus Christ brings.
He adds in verse 24, “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified
the sinful nature with its passions and lusts.”
By removing the Bible, prayer and Jesus from school and government, the government has sewn the seeds of its own downfall.
However, too often, it’s the mass media that creates the bigoted
Culture of Christophobia. So, it’s the mass media that we must redeem
