So good to see movie theaters across the country showing @UnplannedMovie — a deeply inspiring new pro-life film based on the best-selling book by @AbbyJohnson. More & more Americans are embracing the sanctity of life because of powerful stories like this one. #Unplanned

Mike Pence film critic? I don`t think so!
I haven`t seen Unplanned, and I have no desire to watch it. But if I was considering the merits of the movie I would check the reviews at RottenTomatoes.Com by critics who judge a film based on the literary quality of the screenplay, the acting skills of the thespians, the visual talent of the cinematographer and the artistic vision of the director.
The last thing I would do is seek the advice of an anal-retentive evangelical who judges a motion picture on whether its message is Biblically-correct according to his interpretation of Scripture.
Pence is culturally out-of-step with the vast majority of Americans, while we watch Netflix and chill he watches PureFlix and prays. I`m surprised Pence didn`t warn male moviegoers not to sit next to a woman, lest the wanton woman distracts him from the godly message of the movie and leads him down the path to licentiousness.
Unplanned is evangelical agitprop, and I don`t know about you but I go to the movies as a form of escapism or to learn deeper truths about the human experience, not to be preached to by dour evangelicals.
