God's Children are Not for Sale

By now, you've probably heard of the movie, Sound of Freedom. You may have already seen it.

I went to see the movie when it opened on July 4th, and I fully intended to blog about it immediately afterward. However, it's taken me a full week to digest the scope of

Sound of Freedom...and the radical left's reactions to it.

The movie (which is based on a true story) is the account of Homeland Security agent, Tim Ballard, who left the department after he became frustrated with the U.S.' lack of effort in rescuing trafficked children in third-world countries. Agent Tim Ballard is played by actor Jim Caviezel, who you may remember portrayed Jesus in the Mel Gibson film, Passion of the Christ.

Even in a society as deeply polarized as ours, you might think that stopping child trafficking is a noble goal we could all agree on.

Well, apparently not.

The mainstream media and the radical left have come out and trashed the movie. Rolling Stone magazine calls it a "Q-Anon-tinged thriller about child-trafficking designed to appeal to the conscience of a conspiracy-addled boomer." They also call it "a super-hero movie for dads with brainworms."

The Guardian dismissed this powerful movie event as a “Q-Anon-adjacent thriller seducing America.”

(Just to be clear, the left uses the term "Q-Anon" as a derogatory, catch-all label to ridicule and smear anyone who holds conservative views.)

Let's listen to how CNN demands that no one should see Sound of Freedom for fear it creates more Q-Anons:

Well, they have their timing a bit off. Sound of Freedom, was produced by 20th Century Fox and completed for release in 2018. This was before anyone really heard of "Q-Anon." Then, in March 2019, the Walt Disney Company acquired 20th Century Fox--and the movie was shelved. Hmmm...we've talked about Disney's woke agenda and the sexualization of children in previous blog posts; so it makes sense that they would not want this movie shown to the public. Instead, Disney concentrated their efforts on a stream of mindless, box-office bombs containing woke propaganda. (In fact, Disney has lost $900 million for its efforts.)

Sound of Freedom sat on the shelf for years. No studio wanted to distribute it for fear of "losing money." Even Netflix and Amazon passed on it. Then, Angel Studios (an independent, faith-focused studio known for producing "The Chosen") acquired worldwide distribution rights in March of 2023.

As an aside, and to show how serious human trafficking is...

After the events depicted in the movie, Agent Tim Ballard went on to found Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). This organization is dedicated to leading the fight against child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation around the globe. Here are some statistics that O.U.R. has compiled:

  • The United States is the NUMBER ONE producer and consumer of child abuse content;

  • The Department of Homeland Security estimates that child trafficking has an annual global profit of $150 billion;

  • Human trafficking has already surpassed the illegal arms trade;

  • Human trafficking is expected to soon surpass the illegal drug trade;

  • About 2 million children are trafficked globally every year.

And then, of course, there's our own border.

The Biden administration policies are incentivizing traffickers. A whistleblower has told Congress that the Biden regime has lost track of 85,000 unaccompanied minors and has been delivering migrant children to a "sophisticated network of human traffickers."

But, back to Sound of Freedom...

In addition to the media's trashing of the movie, there is anecdotal evidence that theaters are actively trying to thwart audiences from seeing the film. Here's Chaya Raichik (the much maligned creator of Libs of TikTok) telling of her recent experience:

Ask yourself--why is the media so hell-bent on trashing this movie?

Could it be that the star of the film, Jim Caviezel, is a devout Christian?

Could it be that a small, faith-focused film company is beating Disney's $300 million behemoth, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny at the box office?

Could it be that an awakened public is becoming a roadblock to their woke agenda?

Could it be that the elites in the media and Hollywood are terrified that the public will learn more about what they themselves may be involved in?

If you really want to go down the rabbit hole of child trafficking (and have the stomach for it), here are a couple of articles on organ harvesting, and blood rituals. Then, there's adrenochrome.

You can go even deeper with this. Do you remember back in March 2021, there was an Evergreen Corporation container ship that blocked the Suez Canal for a week, causing billions in lost revenue to shipping companies internationally? Reports at the time claimed that U.S. Navy Seals rescued over a thousand trafficked children and recovered dead bodies out of shipping containers on that ship. The story later disappeared. We'll probably never know the truth.

As with all these claims, the mainstream media and Big Tech have unleashed an army of fact-checkers to refute and label them Q-Anon, right-wing, kook conspiracies. But, we also know that "fact-checkers" are paid by the very same media that employs them. So, draw your own conclusions.

Given the history of the mainstream media and Hollywood, I believe that the simple fact that they DON'T want you to see Sound of Freedom tells you absolutely everything you need to know.

To paraphrase Shakespeare's Hamlet, "Methinks the left doth protest too much."

The bottom line is, if you haven't seen this movie, go see it now. Angel Studios even has a program called "Pay It Forward" where those who have been inspired by the movie can purchase tickets for others who might not be able to afford to see the film.

Here's the official trailer:

And this is Jim Caviezel's inspirational message to the audience as the credits run at the end of the movie:

It's becoming abundantly clear that, when the mainstream media tells you NOT to do something, you should do the exact opposite.

Be brave.

Take a stand.

God's children are not for sale.

“Speak truth and you will be attacked by the untruthful. Speak about absolutely nothing, and nothing will speak back, but then nothing will ever change.”
