Boundless — a publication of Focus on the Family — has posted an open letter to Christianity Today lambasting it for giving Sex and the City a positive review. While I absolutely disagree with this assessment of CT — which I find to be an incredibly well-done and thoughtful publication, especially in their movie reviews — and find the letter’s tone a little sanctimonious, it does raise some interesting questions: is it possible to give a film a positive review without promoting or endorsing its content? Or are they really one in the same?
